I thought rape was a problem of power not sex? Or does the feminist mind reserve the right to change every few days?

@1 i hope this is the stupidest thing you’ll think today.
3
@1 Oh, go fuck yourself you bucket of shit.
4
Haven't feminists been telling us for 25 years that "rape is about power, not sex"?

Now it's about sex?

Im just confused, that's all.

You left comments open on this one? Bold move!
7
don't do it.
9
so this works how?
1. cut off the men you like fucking.
2. ?
3. pervs stop sexual assaulting.

"That's it. Going full gay."

Kevin Spacey thanks you.
11
Soon there won't be anyone left in Hollywood to lecture American's about how horrid Trump is to women during the Emmy's and Oscars next year.

Talk about glass houses, bricks and so forth.
12
" no one is telling you rape is about sex right now buddy"

Then why cut off sex to stop rape?
13
"no one is telling you rape is about sex right now buddy"

Just asked Mrs. Biggles about this idea. She asked the same thing - if it's not about sex, why not stop, say, making me sandwiches for a week? After all, I really like sandwiches too.
15
Ha! Nice try, but women already cut off sex with me!
17
Cut off access to porn. Then there will be a tidal wave of demands for action. What form those demands will be, how they will be implemented, and how anyone will know the problem has been solved are completely left to one's imagination, but you can be sure there'd be an immediate groundswell. Like Urgutha Forka, this current plan would have zero impact on me right now.
18
"my god you are dumb and so is your "wife""

Really? I'm pretty sure it's because Mrs Biggles hates making me sandwiches but loves a good rogering.

I'd say she's pretty smart in that regard.

"Cut off access to porn"

Good to see Christian conservatives come to Slog.

"2 Live Crew" albums too?
21
"Seems if we could turn straight men gay, it'd be a win-win for everyone"

Well, at least for Kevin Spacey.
22
@15: Maybe women have, but has the woman?
24
Katie Herzog, notable lesbian, has tons of experience not having sex with men.

Good for you, Katie. I'm sure your advice will be very effective, being as your sexual orientation doesn't incline you to being attracted to men in the first place. Real great.
25
Didn't this paper shit all over Spike Lee for a very similar statement almost exactly two years ago? As Charles Mudede and Ijeoma Oluo said, 'What kind of society reduces the power of half of its citizens to their sexual organs?"

26
Of course, the men in Ms. Gay's life might like and be relieved by this proposal. So there's an upside to it I suppose.
27
Well this is a yucky thread.
28
@24: The article stands on its own and does not need consideration of the author's sexual orientation.
29
@16: I get the idea - the good guys with blue balls use their special man privilege to stop rape/assault/coercion by bad guys. But how, exactly?

Pick a fight with a dude abusing his wife in public? Spend 18 years raising a son to respect women? Ask a wealthy, powerful predator for coffee and persuade him not to coerce women into sex? Fund a PSA telling men that women are people?

Maybe Katie Herzog can explain what she wants us to do, and how to do it without getting shot. http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/story/3542…

#27: yucky articles make yucky comments.
32
"The article stands on its own and does not need consideration of the author's sexual orientation."

I kind of agree, but shouldn't a protest leader lead by example? I mean, it's not like Gandhi slipped out for an ice cream during his fasts to end British rule.
33
@14 The only reason hollywood ifs firing these people is because it's come out in the open. The casting couch has been in use ever since there was a Hollywood. As if no one ever knew.
34
now we know how a sex strike would work- men would be marching and running down 1st screaming and crying for their rights, their rights to women's bodies. like, 100s of men, hillarious. so, whatever it is, don't do it.
35
"now we know how a sex strike would work"

With a corresponding spike in dildo sales?

As far as Mrs. Biggles is concerned, she enjoys a good rogering, so I'm not sure how long she'd last.
38
@14 Hollywood (and Madison Ave and 30 Rockefeller) did help elect trump to the White House. NBC, CNN, and several other outlets saw the rating skyrocket when they consistently cover tromp nonstop for months if not years before the election. NBC made a Tonna money off the apprentice, and all the subsequent coverage that went with it.
39
@22,

Ms. Forka keeps me plenty happy.

You know of course that I simply can't resist making sarcastic and juvenile comments when the moment presents itself. :)
40
biggles will be at the head of the parade, his sign will be something like, "my very real wife likes sex so please for her sake, end this strike, we cannot change our culture that uses violence to silence the everyday abuse targeting women, which my real wife coincidently doesn't believe in" ..a very large sign for a very important person indeed.

don't do it.
41
"Mrs. Biggles' interest in rogering you will inevitably wain in the coming years"

25 years, and several children in, I'd say it's been quite the opposite with Mrs. Biggles, actually. Especially now the sprogs aren't always under foot.

Then again, there's two places she's never cared for politics: the bedroom and the kitchen. She enjoys food and sex too much I suppose. Exhausting somedays, but she does make a lovely sandwich.

By the way, Mrs. Biggles can't "roger", but she can enjoy "a good rogering". Active vs. passive use of the term is particularly important.
42
@39: I couldn't resist either and had a hunch about the charming Ms. Forka!
43
@42 But he really shouldn't use her photo as his avatar.
45
"I keep forgetting, everyone on SLOG is old."

I believe the old ones are the ones who confuse being joyless, morose prigs for being noble.
47
Or we could lock Weinstein, Spacey and C.K. up with each other.
48
@46 yes good point, we wouldn't see the millions of men who center their relationships on sexual access and pout and leverage ownership in every way they can to maintain it, but are too embarassed to display their desperation in public. boo hoo.

if there is a strike, women would need refuge from these men as their pouts so often become rages on a dime.

more evidence to: don't do it.
50
Sex Strike? Who cares? Just have sex with one of your woman's best friends, or sister. Better yet, spend the vacation money on Hookers. When the time comes to book flights and rooms. Just tell your 'ol lady that you spent the money on whores while she was "On Strike".
51
How much of this proposal is predicated on the unstated assumption that women do not have sexual desires of their own, or alternately, have libidos that are inconsequential when compared to those of men?

This at the very least reinforces those nasty little tropes, doesn't it?
52
Sure, go ahead on the strike. I'm sure the prostitutes and strippers will thank you!
53
@1,12, and anybody else asking why this is about sex when sexual assault/harassment are about power and control, not sex.

The idea is presumably that men would talk to each other. and eventually the sentiment would reach the people who need to hear it.

Like a giant game of telephone around the phrase:
"Hey dude, stop being such an enormous sack of shit, I'm not getting any, and people like you are why"
54
"Just have sex with one of your woman's best friends, or sister. Better yet, spend the vacation money on Hookers"

Setting aside the choice of words, it would be interesting. Would the professionals go on strike?

And if Mrs. Biggles joined in the funlessness, but gave up when a particularly rapey episode of "Game of Thrones" got her in the mood, would she be considered a "scab"?
55
"The idea is presumably that men would talk to each other. and eventually the sentiment would reach the people who need to hear it. "

Well, the womenfolk could just as easily give up making us sandwiches. I know Mrs. Biggles would join in that strike and considering how yummy her open-face cucumber sandwiches are, I might listen.
56
@52

I think the idea here is that the pros would be right there at the front on the picket lines.
57
"I think the idea here is that the pros would be right there at the front on the picket lines."

I suppose you're probably correct sir. I doubt being a woman of ill repute and being labeled a 'scab' would be a good move, professionally.
58
@41: "By the way, Mrs. Biggles can't "roger", but she can enjoy "a good rogering". Active vs. passive use of the term is particularly important."

I've got a strap-on dildo that says otherwise.
59
"I've got a strap-on dildo that says otherwise."

You sir, while not much of a gentlemen, certainly have an interesting offer. I'll run it by Mrs. Biggles.

I'll warn you though, she's not much of a union person, so would probably see a strap-on more as a handy way to skirt around the strikers and continue business, somewhat as normal.
60
@51 what's your plan? and, would women be freaking out like the studs here if men went on sex-strike to stop men from assaulting women?

don't do it.
61
@59: It says a lot that you assumed I was a man. (Spoiler alert: I'm a woman. Hence, the strap-on.)
63
I doubt that a sex strike would work. Men who can't get sex do what they always do, they masturbate. And it's not just single men considered losers; Married men, men with steady live-in girl friends and even those who seem to bat 1.000 with women, they all still masturbate. Even the ones who say they only did once or twice when they were teenagers.
64
" It says a lot that you assumed I was a man. Spoiler alert: I'm a woman. Hence, the strap-on"

You've obviously never been in a British boarding school.
65
"Men who can't get sex do what they always do, they masturbate."

Sometimes men who get sex, have fun with Mr. Bates too. Sometimes it's best to go into action with your powder a little wet to slow things down a bit, old chap.
66
I love watching liberals eat each other - pardon the parlance. (Dont for get to catch HUMP filmfest next fall)! ROTFL
67
So what are your demands?
68
@62

Either way, it's an assumption that dismisses women's sexual desires, isn't it?

Do we really need more of that kind of thinking?
69
"I love watching liberals eat each other"

The last time, I believe, liberals ate each other was when Jeremy Thorpe called down to Norman "Scottie" Scott and demanded for more thrust.
70
"So what are your demands?"

We're giving Pilate two days to dismantle the entire apparatus of the Roman Imperialist State.
71
Let's end the evening with some levity chaps!

How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

That's not funny.
73
So,...everyone soon won't be having more sex than me?
75
"You mean honest, realistic thinking?"

Can't have that. Men and women are totally interchangeable. Gender is a social construct.

Except when it isn't.

Please wait...
