Alyssa Milano's call for 'sex strike' backfires immediately, hilarity ensues

Share

Alyssa Milano took to Twitter on May 10 to protest abortion restriction laws, like the one that just passed in Georgia, by asking women to join her in abstaining from sex until they can have their "bodily autonomy" back.

"Our reproductive rights are being erased", she tweeted last night. "It's reminding people that we have control over our own bodies and how we use them". "I'm calling for a #SexStrike", she said. Governor Kemp's "Fetal Heartbeat" Abortion Law is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms.

By Saturday afternoon, #SexStrike and "Alyssa Milano" were two of Twitter's top 10 trending topics, and Milano's tweet had close to 25,000 likes and almost 9,000 retweets.

Matt Walsh pointed out that "the only dudes affected by the sex strike are the emasculated pro-abortion guys who are already on [the pro-abortion] side".

Another critique of Milano's suggestion was that it implies that witholding sex would only be punitive to men, and not to women.

Milano says the only way to change the minds of male politicians is to withhold sex. "Bribing men for equal rights with access to our bodies is not how feminism works".

"Mandatory vasectomies until you want to have children", the Westworld star tweeted this week. What's that? A hard no? Why?

This came after the adoption of the "heartbeat" law, which prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
