Actress and Democratic activist (and #MeToo activist who excused Joe Biden’s compulsive hair-sniffing by saying he didn’t intend to make anyone uncomfortable) Alyssa Milano must have been off of Twitter over the weekend because she seems to think her tweet endorsing a nationwide sex strike was responsible for bills like Georgia’s heartbeat bill “being discussed in a serious manner on our national news cycle.”
The #SexStrike tweet has reminded people of the Republican war against women.
These oppressive, regressive, forced-pregnancy bills are now being discussed in a serious manner on our national news cycle.
Please read on and share if it resonates.

If Milano had been paying attention, she’d know conservatives celebrated her admission that abstinence is the best birth control there is, feminists dragged her for reducing women’s bodies to a commodity, and transgender advocates hammered her for saying only “ladies” needed to worry about unwanted pregnancy (what about trans men?).
She’d also know that the national news media has never covered pro-choice legislation (or marches or demonstrations) in a serious manner; abortion on demand without apology is the media’s starting line and a slobbering puff piece about Planned Parenthood’s new president is just expected — they’re going to be covering her a lot, and by covering her, we mean reprinting her statements.
She needs to get over herself — her tweet was a massive dumpster fire and she’s trying to salvage it. In her latest tedious thread, she does give women permission to “f**k on” for their own sexual pleasure … despite having just endorsed a #SexStrike a couple of days earlier.
JFC – you're obviously not paying attention. Your tweet did not do this. At all. It took seriousness out of the conversation. But, continue patting yourself on the back thinking you're some kind of brilliant hero for women. SMH. https://t.co/yzFbkT52aS

Not any serious "national news cycle."

No it hasn't. You really suffer a lot from cognitive dissonance Alyssa.

It reminded people how big a fool you are and nothing more….lmao.. way to set #feminism back by 30yrs. But please, continue.

You know you can have sex without getting pregnant right? https://t.co/lrMpgpe3Gl

Who’s forcing you to get pregnant exactly?
— Cloaked Investigator Lauren (@Lauren34391486) May 13, 2019
I think we should demand forced male birth control. Do something to force government control over their bodies. Maybe they should be tied and then untied when a woman wants a baby from them!

Or just don’t put a male appendage inside you that doesn’t have a condom on, you dummy.
— Clayton Peterson (@cpete87) May 13, 2019
No one is forcing anyone to get pregnant. OMG! ??

Don't have sex. Less sex equals less abortions. We agree

Way to bring seriousness to the debate with #SexStrike. ?
You can try to do damage control on your stupidity all you want but what you really did was highlight the sad reality that many women view abortion as birth control and as an insurance policy against free sex.

GP (1) No one's taking away your "right" to birth control, we just don't want to pay for it unless we're banging you.
(2) You can choose your own destiny. No one's stopping you even if you choose a dumb one.
(3) Abortion isn't healthcare
(4) You won't go to jail for having one https://t.co/MSIStUquUb

Conservative woman are hotter and smarter anyway
And the feminists and transgender activists are still mad at her:
Your performative advocacy (grift) isn't helping. You've added a dimension and energy to chuds dunking on feminism, and also stoked the fires of abstinence as a sole alternative to women's care rhetoric. Hope you're proud of yourself.

I really wish you would take the time to LISTEN to those offering constructive criticism.
This #sexstrike and your refusal to heed is very reminiscent of when you called yourself a gay, trans, WOC and similarly trampled over those marginalised groups.

Keep up the great work!
There is no Republican war on women. Wanting to protect unborn humans from being ripped apart or burned to death is not war on women. Wanting women to be responsible with birth control is not a war on women. Your sex strike nonsense made you look like a idiot. pic.twitter.com/Lf3Urr1Qko
