Vivian Norris is telling Texas women to hold a sex strike against men who cast their votes against women’s best interests.
I’m telling women not to use sex as a weapon. Sex should never be used to “get your way.” Turning sex into a weapon opens up a host of problems such as removing it from a romantic context, turning it into a “reward” for when your man is good, thereby telling him he is a child who still needs to be taught using play time and time outs and turning your own body into something that is considered a prize, thereby turning you into an object to be won.
If women are to win the war against men who think our only purpose is to procreate it won’t do to turn sex into a weapon, for the aforementioned reasons. In fact, boycotting sex until abortion rights are granted and birth control is available to everyone doesn’t mean we will actually be winning the war. It means we will be furthering the notions that these men already have. It means we will be objectifying ourselves, turning our bodies into objects that these types of men – Norris describes them as “good ole boys” – already see them as.
Win this war just as Wendy Davis did. Use your intellect, not your body.
