It’s time to put the patriarchy in its place once and for all.
I’m thinking the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Taliban wannabes in Texas, the latter of whom have decided they should determine when a woman can have an abortion.
Of course, we all know what the Taliban think of women. And now we know what Texas lawmakers think of women, too.
There’s one way women can deal with patriarchal morons: deny them sex.
And women around the world should take up the cause in support of all oppressed women everywhere.
For women living in sane countries where they have equal rights and jurisdiction over their own bodies, tell your boyfriends or significant male others why you are denying them sex. Ask them to speak out for women everywhere. If they care at all about you and women’s rights, they will bite the bullet and join you.
Start the movement now: #DenyMenSex. Until such time ALL oppressed women have equal civil rights and total jurisdiction over their own bodies.
We need to put on a performance of Lysistrata
Good idea, Fred.
Not long after I put up my post, a statement by actress Bette Midler appeared, urging female fans to stage sex boycott to protest against Texas abortion laws

Although agree with your anger, you are making two flaws in thinking:
1. That all women are pro-abortion. There are as many women who are anti-abortion as men.
2. You are also implying that sex for women is only a tool, and that women have otherwise no interest in sex.
I’m not suggesting that all women are pro-abortion, and if that came across, I’m sorry.
But women should have the right to make their decisions on the matter, not some pathetic patriarchy in Texas and other backward places.
Nor was I suggesting that sex is a tool for women. It has been suggested by some prominent women, including Bette Midler recently, that women in backward states like Texas withhold sex as a form of protest.
