HuffPo: Don’t Have Sex With That Man!

Sultry, sweaty summers can be made much nicer when good old-fashioned sex is part of the picture. But women, take heed: Don’t give in if your man, boyfriend, husband, toyboy is not voting for your best interests, your reproductive health — do not sleep with that man!

That’s the advice from Huffington Post columnist Vivian Norris, who has called for a sex boycott until the men of Texas give women what they really want:  abortion.

Norris went farther than that in her July 1 column.  Whether he’s your boyfriend or your husband of many years, Norris recommends that you give him the cold shoulder unless he’s willing to vote for unrestricted access to women’s reproductive services.

Do not make him dinner, do not go fetch him a cold beer from the fridge, do not iron that shirt, hell, do not change that diaper… do not make his life a little nicer this summer if he does not “get it” and learn to respect women!  Instead, volunteer some time for senators like Wendy Davis, go with a group of women to Austin and make your voices heard. Get on the computer and the social networks and organize.

Quality relationship?  Emotional and spiritual intimacy?  For better or worse?  Not a sufficient reason to engage in coitus if the guy’s not on the same page with regard to killing your children.  Take a stand!  is Norris’ advice to Texan ladies, who need abortion clinics more than they need, well, anything.

This may sound a bit extreme and some will say sex should not be used as a “weapon” but let’s get real, this is Texas, and men in Texas who have not woken up and smelled the coffee simply do not deserve any loving.  Houston has more strip clubs than libraries.  You can buy a gun easier than you can get reproductive health care.  There is still a virgin and whore fundamentalist mentality which is more dangerous to women as it often is also promoted by the women themselves.

The Huffington Post columnist is described as a “Ph.D. focusing on Globalization and Media Studies.”  If you like, you can use some of the time you’ll save staying out of the bedroom, and read the rest of her petulant article here.

    If any woman takes her advice, her man would be very well advised to dump her and then go thank God on his knees for deliverance from lifelong misery and daily temptation to sin.

    Women don’t have sex with your men until you get unrestricted access to killing your children? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! How about you just stop having sex! Then all your problems are solved!!

      Many people think that abortion is about women’s health care, and are naturally angry that this takes a back seat to strip clubs and macho gun toting.

    If you’re not married, this is a good sign to start looking for someone else. For both of you.

    If you ARE married, this is a good sign that it’s time for marital counseling.

    This might be a good time to discuss what happens to our lives when they are disordered. I’m pretty sure using sex as a weapon is disordered! Actually not having sex with your boyfriend is not a bad thing but not having sex with your husband is a different story! Concerning the woman holds a PHD and is considered to have higher education. Someone might need to educate her on healthy marriages…aiming for unconditional love, self-sacrifice, respect, spouses being submissive to one another and of course being open to the supreme gift of the marital act- children! Need help with these marital virutes? Look no further:

  • That’s not even all that an original idea. It’s a take off of the ancient Greek drama, Lysistrata, where the women withhold sex to stop a long running war. In real life it’s rather silly as an idea. She doesn’t sound like she’s the sharpest knife in the drawer. Typical PhD.

  • Sometimes I think they write intentionally ludicrous articles just for the comments and out cry. Indignation makes for a lot of pageviews and links.

    • Hard to say because it’s often hard to distinguish between a typical, sincere Liberal view with an intentionally ludicrous thought. 😛

  • I guess that’s one way to prevent abortion.

    If only men and women not have sex, all the problems of the world will go away. Forever !

    Hey everyone that knows me. The article is suggesting me to take the route direction to a slutty whore where my objectives will be some what met. What else can I do besides taking the scenic route directive that blinks lights over the yonder horizon because the pro-abortion and the anti-abortion will stand their ground. Hee, hee, hee hee, hee hee, ha ha, hee hee. And off I go.

    Yiiikes !! The best not-so-serious article that I have read with such eager interests over and over and over again. There is this so-called wisdom in the article. Read it again and again and again and you will surely find that wisdom solution. Adios until then as I have to find me a mate to mate.
