Alyssa Milano Calls for 'Sex Strike' Over Georgia Anti-Abortion Law ...

https://www.tmz.com/.../alyssa-milano-calls-for-sex-strike-georgia-anti-abortion-law/

1 hour ago - Alyssa Milano has declared all-out war on Georgia ... urging women to stop having sexuntil Georgia repeals its law severely limiting abortion. ... JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. ... Milano's call to arms is reminiscent of ancient Greece and Spike Lee.


Her and the blonde should have done that when they were kids but instead choose fame and fortune over morals. Givin what she has been through i find some of her stances very hypocritical. I do wish she would come out and just be clear about when she thinks abortion should not be allowed cause it seems like she believes it is ok to kill babies anytime they are in mommy.

Right! Time for some slut-shaming of Hollywood celebs because a few conservative men fear they may receive some blowback this time for their continued dismantling of women's rights. It's a shame that it always depends on some celebrity to get MSM notice for any social cause these days, because although Alyssa Milano is rich enough to never be threatened by any ban on abortion or birth control, women who are of less means sure as hell are increasingly trapped by the removal of rights to make reproductive choices. So, maybe she's doing it for publicity, but that's the only way get through the bullshit clutter of infotainment and pure propaganda hiding real news! Sort of reminds me that Pamela Anderson is the only similar celeb who's taken on the cause of freeing Julian Assange for publishing information governments don't want people to know about.

And fwiw, Alyssa Milano didn't just make up this concept of a sex strike by herself! This goes way back to early stages of modern patriarchal civilizations, after men of power and influence had completely removed women from any role in public affairs. During the days of Ancient Greece, when Greek city states began creating their own trading and commercial empires, a renowned Greek playwright - Aristophenes wrote: Lysistrata...the story of a Greek woman who comes up with an idea that if all of the women of Athens go on a sex strike and refuse their men, the men will at least be faced with the hard choice of going off to battle again in the 30 year long Peloponnesian Wars without any sex...according to the story they barricade themselves in the Acropolis in the city center and force the men to stay home and end the war.

How much of the Lysistrata is based on fact is debatable, but the story inspired women in modern times to go on sex strikes to end wars...first the International Women's Suffrage movement began during the so called "Great War" WWI, as women from different adversarial nations met together in a conference to propose ways of ending the War that had already killed millions in Europe. The play -Lysistrata gave some the idea of a modern sex strike. In more recent times, sex strikes have been organized and apparently influential in ending wars in West Africa and Kenya...so it's not just a silly notion. And why should it be if it's women married to conservative, anti-abortion/birth control men pushing for further restrictions in affairs that no man should be ruling over or even being involved in...except for a pregnant woman's doctor...if it's a male doctor!

It takes two to make a baby. At some point through a pregnancy a child's rights begins and so should a mans rights if they are expected to play a part in the other 18 years of a child's rights.

A man...who is unencumbered by pregnancy (for obvious reasons) has no right under any circumstances to tell his pregnant wife or girlfriend she has to have a baby! No ifs ands or buts!

If she follows through and has the baby...that's kind of tough shit if the guy doesn't want to pay or be involved in any way how that child grows up. Since it's the female half and only the female half of the population who has babies and has the primary responsibility for raising them, then the male half of the population who have less at stake physically and time wise, should have some financial responsibilities afterwards.

That is just an opinion.

If a woman wants to have complete responsibility then she has to have it from day 1. She gives permission to become partners in having a baby by allowing a man to impregnate her. That is just partnership 101. After a fetus becomes viable to live outside the womb then the woman has a responsibility not only to the 50% partner but also to the viable child. Otherwise she should not have any right to the partnership if she does not allow for the partner to have a say. Meaning she is taking on full responsibility of the child by going back on the agreement that was made during conception.

This can be avoided much by better education.

I do believe in choice. I also think there should be a limit on when you can have an abortion. There is a point where a fetus become a life. I agree with the responsibility thing as well. If a woman has the choice, which I agree, and were talking about a uncommitted relationship, where as the man has no choice. Why should a man be responsible if he has no choice in the manner? In the day of contraception and abortion and its all about only the woman has a choice, then a woman should live with her choice, in regards to a uncommitted relationship.

Does a woman always "allow a man to impregnate her?" It's issues like these I wish there was some female input on this forum! Because I don't have a first hand understanding of what it's like to get pregnant, go through pregnancy, childbirth etc. any more than you do!

If we lived in a socialist society, similar to those our ancestors lived, raising and caring for children would be viewed as a community responsibility. This framing of the issue has only come about because modern capitalism has defined "family" down to a man and a woman. So if the man bolts, then the woman is stuck trying to raise and feed her children all by herself!

The exception is not the rule and such exceptions are written into the law. In other words rape and such are different cases than two people consenting to have sex. We need to teach people what consent really means.

He's using 'allow a man to impregnate her' as a substitution for 'has sex'.

Some men don't understand that most women don't want to have sex ONLY when they are trying, or willing, to have a child. Or more likely, they do understand that, consider the woman a slut and feel that she should be punished.
