Let’s talk about the difference between #SexStrike & #StopFuckingShittyMen. Sex strike proposes that all women stop having sex (with men its implied I think, no clue if queer women are supposed to stop fucking each other here) in order to punish men or raise awareness.
As some have already noted, this perpetuates the idea that sex is the only bargaining chip women have & that sex is the only reason men will listen to us. I’m not on board at all. But folks may think that the Sex Strike is no different than my recent proposal.
#StopFuckingShittyMen is about centering women’s sexual needs (don’t fuck men who don’t care about your pleasure or who make you feel bad about your body) as well as refusing to participate in sex with men who don’t deserve our time, attention or bodies.
When I say #StopFuckingShittyMen that includes men who support abortion bans that show zero regard for the autonomy of people with uteruses; that includes men who are kind to their partners, mothers & sisters but treat women at bars or at work like shit. Those are shitty men.
We should #StopFuckingShittyMen in order to center our own needs & raise the bar for men’s behaviors rather than go in a #SexStrike that keeps us from getting pleasure as well. News flash: women like sex. We just shouldn’t have to put with shitty men to get some.
