A 24-year-old woman protesting in New York City on Saturday told the New York Post she would not have sex with men if they were not willing to get a vasectomy.
“If you’re a man who won’t get a vasectomy, even though it’s reversible, and you’re not out in the streets fighting for my rights, you do not deserve to have sex with me,” she stated.
Other seemingly progressive Twitter users joined in on the call to abstain from sex with men.
“Perhaps a #sexstrike (also known as #abstinence ) would help the men folk to be all in on this #womensrights issue. #RoeVWade,” wrote Monique Pressley, a legal analyst, and political commentator, according to her bio.
“If you’re celebrating the overturn of RoeVWade, disrespectfully, go fuck yourself. No literally. #SEXSTRIKE Don’t fuck your husbands, don’t fuck your boyfriends, don’t fuck that random from that one app. NO SEX WITH SPERM DONORS UNTIL WE HAVE OUR RIGHTS,” another user wrote.
One Twitter user — implied through an image — called for “abstinence” from Republicans.

Conservatives on social media responded to pro-abortion women by pointing out that calling for a sex strike might not be the dunk they think it is.
“Leftists be like “FINE!! No abortions, we’ll just practice ABSTINENCE!! Take that, religious conservatives!!!,” tweeted Olivia Rondeau.

Conservative author Rod Dreher also poked fun at the idea of women going on a sex strike.
