In the wake of the “War on Women” controversy, a number of individuals have seemingly gotten it into their minds that Republicans, particularly Republican men, ought to be punished for their callousness.

In mid-March, a women’s organization held a week-long “sex strike” in an awareness campaign for their “reproductive rights” (presumably this means free birth control), and now author and Huffington Post blogger John Blumenthal is encouraging another such strike, but with a much wider reach.

What, exactly, does he propose?  No sex until November, and if by then you are not 100% convinced he will vote Democrat, “Make him stay home on election day.”

Blumenthal explains in his article:

Maybe you haven’t heard the news lately ladies, but for reasons only they comprehend, Republican men are waging war on you. That’s right. Full-scale combat. A veritable crusade. We’re talking no contraception, no abortions, no Planned Parenthood, needless vaginal probing, and they’ve only just gotten started.

And what are you doing about it? Not much.

Here’s the scenario: If we elect Mitt Romney, and both houses of Congress end up being dominated by passengers from the clown bus, God only knows how far they’ll go.  Will humorless federal agents in black suits, earpieces and reflecting sunglasses be stationed in your bedroom?  Will your ovaries become the property of the state?  Will women’s suffrage be repealed?  Will you be required to wear chastity belts and/or burqas?  Will burning witches at the stake return as a reality show?

They’re holding all the cards, ladies, and their self-righteous imaginations are limitless.

Republican imaginations are limitless, critics ask?  Burning witches at the stake as a reality show, if Republicans are elected?  Federal agents stationed in your bedroom?  Is he joking?

But it does not end there:

Here’s the good news: It’s within your power to prevent all this from happening. How? Simple.  Deny sex to your men folk if they plan to vote Republican.  Of course, you probably like sex too, but sometimes people in a democratic society have to make sacrifices for freedom and equality.

[...]

Of course, you first have to determine whether your fella is a Republican, if he hasn’t already told you.  This shouldn’t be too hard.  Does he own a Glock, which he keeps in case a deer breaks into your house?  Does he work for Goldman Sachs?  Does he favor the missionary position because it sounds vaguely religious?  Does he keep a Confederate flag in his sock drawer?  When you go to Macy’s together, does he wander off while you’re in the cosmetics department and secretly fondle sweater vests?

Fast forward a few months:

Okay, so now it’s November and you haven’t had sex with him since April.  Drooling all over himself, he promises he’ll do anything you say.  But what if he tries to trick you?  Voting is confidential, so no matter how horny he is, he might tell you he’s voting for Obama, but then vote the Republican ticket instead.  How do you prevent this from happening?  Simple. Make him stay home on Election Day.

Then have sex with him and do what you usually do — fake [it].

For the last “liberal ladies sex strike,” one Facebook commenter posted pictures of Helen Thomas and wrote: “Somehow, I’m OK with this.”

Hundreds of others were inclined to agree, saying things along the lines of “Isn’t using sex as a bargaining tool contradictory with women wanting to be seen as more than just sex objects?” and “Combine this with the Roe Effect and liberals will be sexless AND childless.”

But this particular strike hits a different chord– instead of demanding the men vote for Obama, the author urges women to “make” the men stay home.

Why?  Is it possible that even after an 8-month sex strike the author thinks they still wouldn’t vote Obama?  It must be drastic times to call for such drastic measures.
