The Huffington Post reports on the latest tactic those in the “War On Women” movement are using to try to “get their message out”:
A group that supports health care coverage of contraception is calling for women to withhold sex from their partners between April 28 and May 5.
“This will help people understand that contraception is for women and men, because men enjoy the benefit of women making their own choices about when and if they want to get pregnant,” Liberal Ladies who Lunch says on its website. “Once congress and insurance agencies agree to cover contraception, we will then resume having sex. Until then men will have to be content with their left hand.”
On its Facebook page, the group charts a brief history of similar “strikes,” starting with Aristophanes’ ancient Greek play “Lysistrata,” where women refuse to have sex until the end of the Peloponnesian War.
The proposal has attracted some negative Facebook reactions, according to The Daily Caller, which reports that an opponent of contraception coverage commented on the “irony of…ceasing sex in order to get free contraception.”
Hmm. I’ve got a much better idea:
How about the more militant “sex striker” gals on the left extend the time frame beyond May 5th to, oh, I dunno – indefinitely, no matter whether or not they “win” the manufactured war they started? As we all know, abstinence is the most sure fire way of preventing pregnancy, and if these gals don’t reproduce, that means a better likelihood of less liberals inhabiting America some 18-20 years from now. By the same token, conservative wives – get busy during this time frame! Because, well, I’m sure you get the point …*
*To those of you in “mixed marriages” (conservative spouse & liberal spouse) – you’re on your own.
