Women urged to stop sex, even with husbands

WND-20-YearsJuly 1, 2013: An outspoken feminist recruited women to stop having sex with all Texas men – even their husbands – until the men started voting for the “right” to end an unborn baby’s life with a late-term abortion.

“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!” warned Huffington Post contributor Vivian Norris. “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!”

Norris continued, “Do not make him dinner, do not go fetch him a cold beer from the fridge, do not iron that shirt, hell, do not change that diaper … do not make his life a little nicer this summer if he does not ‘get it’ and learn to respect women!”

Texas legislators filed a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks and require abortion facilities to meet basic health and safety standards. The late-term abortion ban reportedly had the support of 62 percent of Texas residents.

Instead of having sex with men, Norris suggested women “volunteer some time for senators like Wendy Davis, go with a group of women to Austin and make your voices heard. Get on the computer and the social networks and organize.”

Davis was a pro-abortion Democrat legislator who has received the “Champion for Children Award” from the Equity Center. In an 11-hour filibuster in 2013, she successfully blocked a bill banning late-term abortions in Texas. Gov. Rick Perry called for a special session to pass the ban.

In her sex-strike plea blasting Texas for being a “patriarchal” state, Norris wrote: “Remember what happened last time when a Texas good ole boy governor took that patriarchy all the way to become president of the United States. Stop the damage now and take back Texas.”

She suggested pro-life women are merely oppressed and harming their female peers with their judgment and beliefs: “These women, like women who hurt other women everywhere by criticizing and judging them, need to wake up as well. Women hurting other women is suicidal. Women who play into the hand of patriarchy need to be shown the way out of that prison.”

Norris fumed, “This may sound a bit extreme and some will say sex should not be used as a ‘weapon’ but let’s get real, this is Texas, and men in Texas who have not woken up and smelled the coffee simply do not deserve any loving.”

She took yet another jab at pro-life men: “I mean they really do not respect nor listen to women. There is a breed of Texas male who simply does not hear women. Women’s voices remind them of terrorists.”

Gumbel fumbles

b_gumbelJuly 1, 2000: CBS’ “Early Show” anchor Bryant Gumbel found himself the target of traditional values activists after his microphone – which he thought was turned off – broadcast him calling a Boy Scouts of America supporter a “f—ing idiot” on live television.

Gumbel had completed an interview with the Family Research Council’s Robert Knight over a recent Supreme Court ruling upholding the Boy Scouts of America’s right to exclude homosexual leaders. Knight had articulated a very traditional religious viewpoint regarding homosexuality and had just left the set when Gumbel made the comment.

“In this day of tolerance and diversity, Mr. Gumbel’s obvious intolerance and bigotry is unacceptable,” said AFA President Donald E. Wildmon. “CBS should fire him immediately. There should be no place at CBS for such intolerance and bigotry.”
