In the fevered mind of actress turned political activist Alyssa Milano it makes perfect sense to advocate a #SexStrike to protest Georgia’s new “heart beat” law.  Without any hint of irony, she claims that women “cannot risk getting pregnant” and should withhold sex “until we get bodily autonomy back.”

Here’s her tweet:

Never mind that the aging actress is 46 years old and therefore not exactly in her child-bearing prime, she wants women to “join her” in this sex boycott.

Deadline reports:

Alyssa Milano, one of the leaders of the #MeToo movement, is taking a different approach to battling the so-called “Heartbeat Bill” anti-abortion bill recently codified in Georgia, with similar measures under consideration in other states.

In this case, Milano has advocated a #NoMas approach, calling on women to refrain from sex while their rights to their own bodies are at issue by state legislatures.

“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” Milano said via Twitter. “Until women have legal control over our bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”

So far, the tweet has won strong approval (although the demographics of supporters weren’t broken out), generating more than 10,000 likes and 4,000 retweets since its apperance [sic] on Friday. #SexStrike was also trending on Twitter Saturday.

Naturally, the left is in ecstasy over this bizarre effort.

Personally, I don’t have a problem with women choosing not to have sex, particularly those who might use abortion as birth control, but I imagine that Planned Parenthood would beg to differ. An idea not lost on a lot of pro-lifers.

But wait, one of her fans sees a loophole here.

Apparently, that’s a thing, too.

Meanwhile, feminist author Jessica Valenti is not happy with Milano’s #SexStrike.

Twitchy reports:

Jessica Valenti, perhaps sensing the corner Milano had painted herself into, has let the actress/activist know she’s not on board with that particular movement:

To be fair, Milano is an actress-turned-activist, so she can’t be expected to entertain logic or understand issues in any meaningful way. “Hey, let’s not have sex, that’ll show ’em” is likely the closest thing to critical thinking she can muster because it seems that like the majority of the far left fringe, she’s all about knee-jerk, foot-stomping, emotion-based acting out.
