Brooke: I want you to WANT to do the dishes.

Gary: Why would I “want” to do dishes? Why?

Brooke: See that’s my whole point

The Break Up: 2006

Penny:   All right. Let me give you a little girlfriend 101. Usually the first move out of the gate is you withhold sex, but that will work better after Sheldon hits puberty.

The Big Bang Theory, The Weekend Vortex 2012

I still have not read Helen Smith New Book Men on Strike (although I very much want to have her on the show ASAP) but something came up this week that instantly made me think of it. Vivian Norris proposed Sex strike.

But women, take heed: Don’t give in if your man, boyfriend, husband, toyboy is not voting for your best interests, your reproductive health — do not sleep with that man! I don’t care how cute or charming he is! I don’t care if he is your husband of many years. Resist! Go swimming! Meditate!

A 20 something man, the type who might be considered most vulnerable to such a proposition who I told the story to suggested this would fail as woman wouldn’t be able to do with out sex themselves.  This invoked a memory of a SNL skit  from over a decade before he was born staring Jane Curtin:

Earlier this October, Congress extended the period for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Yet, since then not one additional state legislature has ratified this most basic affirmation of human rights. It is time we women took action. As a spokesperson for Weekend Update, I am therefore calling on the women of America to place a moratorium on the act of performing oral sex on any male until the ERA is the law.

I recall Bill Murray’s reply vividly

Well, okay, Jane. But remember that oral sex is a sword that cuts both ways. No oral sex — you know what I’m saying?

Of course we have since learned from liberals that Oral Sex really isn’t sex so it may not be included in Vivian Norris’ proposed strike but lets for the moment presume it is.  Even including a potential lack of Felicio Vivian Norris and her allies proposal to withhold sex until Texas approves late-term abortion on their terms is doomed to fail, mostly due to the limited number of potential persuadable men.  Let’s examine the subset

1.  By definition this strike will only be effective on pro-life men if they are having sex with pro-abortion women.  Since there is a large subset of women who are pro-life none of them are likely to join this boycott so those men are out

2. Religion is a strong driver in terms of abortion positions.  There are always the men who put principle or religion over sex, a small subset to be sure but that subset must also be removed from the equation.

3.  By nature people in high political positions have power and or money, both of these are power inducements for women to have sex with them (Ask yourself if the women at the playboy mansion care what Hefner’s abortion position is)  so the subset of women who are willing to boycott shrinks to the pro-abortion women who are not persuaded by either power or money to sleep with a man.

4.  We also have to subtract those with national ambitions in the GOP, coming out pro-abortion would mean death in a primary and would dry of vast quantities of donor funds from the base nationwide

5.  With the combination of masturbation going from a source of derision and humor to something society declares as “healthy & natural” and pornography becoming not only acceptable but so common on the net on cable and elsewhere that you have to take affirmative steps to avoid it, a man can find release easily.  For a few dollars more a strip club or a hooker on Craigslist is not far away.

6.  Finally you have to exclude one more subset of men, the long married.  A man who has been married for over 30 years put it well when I mentioned it to him saying he’s been married so long he’s forgotten what sex looks like.

7.  And of course this boycott will not effect pro-life women voting for the ban

So now Ms. Norris’ boycott now is now down to targeting the subset of  pro-life men,  who are not with a pro-life spouse or girlfriend, who are not strong enough of character to put their religion or principles first, are not driven enough by ambition to be pro-life for political purposes,  do not have sufficient money and/or power to override the willingness of women to copulate with, are not satisfied with either porn, hookers and strippers to provide a sufficient masturbatory release and who haven’t been married long enough to not notice the absence of sex as normal.

That’s when she hits the final wall.

Men in general tend to have a much higher tolerance for clutter and disorder than women.  What happen if the man figures, hmmm she not going to give me any anyway, why should I bother with dishes, or laundry or mowing the grass or painting that shed or picking up, or those errands etc etc etc.

Men need very little incentive to practice inertia, I suspect Ms. Norris’ boycott will provide more than enough to continue.

So who does that leave Ms. Norris to target?   The subset of non-religious pro-abortion straight men, without power or money, who have not been married long enough to forget sex, are unwilling to masturbate or spend a few dollars on a pole dancer and are too fastidious to let a house stay unkempt in Texas.

And I thought the GOP was a small voting subset in Massachusetts.

Well perhaps if Ms Norris & her voluptuous colleagues can pressure these men sufficiently  so they will implore the other men not vulnerable to the boycott  to give in for their sake.

Because there is nothing like knowing you are having more sex than the other guy to bruise a man’s ego.

What more can anyone ask?

I’ve not given a lot of attention to the Free Kate case lately although Stacy McCain continues to be all over it.

However I was struck by something he wrote concerning the NYC gay pride march

For some strange reason, a search of news sites doesn’t turn up any mainstream media coverage of Kaitlyn Hunt’s Gay Pride Parade appearance in New York City. It’s almost as if the media don’t think the “Free Kate” movement is good for gay rights. Perhaps the media  even disagree with Kate’s mom, Kelley Hunt Smith:

“They are teens, it’s healthy and normal.”

Sometimes the media don’t  want to publicize exactly what the liberal agenda is for your kids. When the American Life League wanted to place advertisements showing examples of Planned Parenthood’s sex education materials, the New York Times rejected these ads as being “too graphic.” Do you really want to click this link? Don’t say you weren’t warned, and if it’s NSFW — if you could be fired for viewing Planned Parenthood sex-education lessons in your office cubicle — why is it OK to show it to your kids in public school?

That’s what I’ve always found interesting about the Free Kate case. The family insists what was done should not be a crime and is perfectly normal but if a boy had been in that bathroom and videotaped what they did.  Then uploaded that video he would be guilty of a Federal Offense. 

This would be true if they gave consent to that video or no.

In fact I think we are underestimating the significance and maybe the meaning of the Free Katie team being in the NYC parade.

Let’s forget, for a moment, the general NSFW content of the parade itself and consider the symbolism.

It would not be unfair to say that the past week was one of the most significant weeks in the history of those pushing for Gay Marriage both in  country in general and in NY State in particular.

The plaintiff in the DOMA case was from NY and the fact that NYC’s gay pride parade came just after their victory likely had meaning to quite a few of the people who organized, participated in, or attended the event.

That being the case there would naturally be more than the usual amount of attention to the parade and those who marched in it.

So what did those in charge of the parade do?

They allowed the Free Kate crowd to actively march in the parade bearing their banner.

Now given what is on .. er …display… at this parade you might not think the Free Kate crowd is a big deal, but it IS.

One of the oddities of the Church’s s sex scandals has been the media simultaneously pushing the guilt of the Catholic Church while ignoring it was overwhelmingly a scandal of gay men having sex with underage boys. This is, as Stacy McCain would call it, a Neutral objective fact yet the fastest way to get yourself called a hater or a bigot or to produce outrage or anger from the gay community is to point this out.

Yet at the most significant Gay event after the most significant court victory in the land, you have marching as Stacy McCain puts it:  America’s Most Famous Sex Offender™.


One could say the organizers, busy as they are with the details, may be unaware of the developments on the case since the Freekate crowd first appeared on the Today Show. Given the level of discussion online, in the gay community, I suspect that is very unlikely.

It’s also possible that they counted on the MSM ignoring her presence (as they did) since the is plenty of precedent for the media covering for those they support.  (See the Barack Obama election campaign circa 2008 & 2012)

And it could be they were worried that some of the more radical participants of the parade would make a fuss.  There is plenty of precedent of ostracization in the gay community for those who dare stray from the radical line even in the slightest.  It’s not time for division in the ranks. Keeping her out might have been more trouble than it was worth.

But there is also one other possibility, the one that is suggested in Stacy post’s title.  It’s possible, just possible that the organizers backed by Justice Kennedy’s (and those who signed onto his opinion) words decided that there is no reason to conceal or hide that part of the agenda anymore.  Perhaps it was time to say loudly and proudly:   This is what is coming and there is not a thing you can do about it and if you dare to object we will treat you in the way we treated the family that dared oppose the Hunts.”

Stacy’s Title asks: Kaitlyn Hunt’s Big Gay Pride Day: Is ‘Jailbait Rights’ Now Mainstream?

That’s a most interesting question and I don’t pretend I know the answer…but I have a feeling we will find out one way or another sooner rather than later.


Olimometer 2.52

Two days into the week and we’re already 30% toward my first full paycheck since May.

However as the Bruins can tell you it’s all about finishing.

I need 11 more readers kicking in $20 means to get that full paycheck. at $25 a head it can be done with only 9 readers.

If you are willing to be one of them consider hitting DaTipJar below. After failing for all of June it would be nice to fill that paycheck early this month.
