Lysistrata

So, a bunch of old men want to take away our right to make decisions about our bodies, and they think that they can justify it by saying that birth control violates religious freedom.  How three centuries ago!

Why don't we, the women of the world, borrow a page from Lysistrata, and stage a sex strike, or better yet, a general strike against unequal treatment.  How far do you think these nosy, controlling old men will get without sexual partners, housekeepers, childcare givers, nurses, or teachers.  If we could pull it off, every economy in the world would grind to a halt.  Let's face it, reproductive labor (that which is repeated each day or each generation) is done mostly by women, and even if that doesn't work, I predict withholding the goodies would make men think twice.

  1. And find someone to introduce legislation that would require the mandatory sterilization of every man that cannot or will not support his offspring! After all, we are hardly a parthenogenic species.
