Horrors, really, no, horrors, Jessica Valenti will not put out for one day

On Monday morning, the Women’s March announced on Instagram that there will be a “general strike.”

The Instagram post is simple and gives little to no information, reading: “General strike: A day without a woman. Date To Be Announced.” The caption reads: “The will of the people will stand.”

….
Many celebrities retweeted the news in support. “Hit ‘em in the wallet,” writer and comedian Corinne Fisher wrote on Twitter. Feminist writer Jessica Valenti added: “I am so here for this.”

Quite possibly a relief for her husband.

And a hint, Lysistrata worked because it was permanent until….no pussy until you men stop it.

You know, like modern marriage already is?

  1. Can’t wait for the reciprocal men’s general strike. I’ll get in another truckload of popcorn should it happen :p

  2. Hopefully it will balloon into the bollocks that is “black history month” but alas will probably not.

    Can’t wait for the reciprocal men’s general strike.

    It’s called Galt’s Gultch, nu?

  4. So Ms Valenti will go a whole day without offering her husband sex? Or doing any cooking? Or cleaning?

    I expect that is usually known in the Valenti household as Tuesday.

  5. If you’ve read Sex Object: A Memoir – I have, and I don’t recommend it – you’ll already know how laughable her pronouncement is.

    She spent almost the entirety of her first 35 years of her life engaging in nothing more than casual sex. In a word, she was promiscuous, and indiscriminately so.

    Then along comes a sucker and she marries a very beta male in Andrew Golis – five years her junior and very obviously a man who probably hadn’t been laid more than once prior to meeting Our Jessica.

    My bet is on this: If anyone is begging for sex in that household on a regular basis, it’s Valenti.

  6. Dennis the Peasant – “My bet is on this: If anyone is begging for sex in that household on a regular basis, it’s Valenti.”

    I have not read the book so I don’t know for sure, but I am not sure that is likely. What you mean is that Valenti is like a man who has been banging supermodels all his life and then, when he gets a bit older, panics and marries some landwhale.

    He will not be begging for sex from said landwhale because he despises himself for settling and thinks fondly of all the hot babes he used to sleep with. In the same way, Valenti will despise her husband for agreeing to marry her – and being less of a man than the men she used to sleep with. Nothing freezes a sex life like contempt.

    Sex in that household will be grudging and rare.

  7. I have this picture of Ms Valenti out at a protest, and her husband, for want of a better term, sitting at home in a recliner, surrounded by empty pizza boxes and beer cans, watching the football on TV in his track pants.

    If you are reading this – Live the dream! You know that single life can’t be worse.

  8. And how many women will do as she suggests?
    Cannot offhand think of anyone I know who would.

    For those men having to cook for themselves that day – hey, barbecue some meat and have a few beers. None of this green stuff or vegetables, a good steak followed by some chicken wings and some ribs.

    What will she do if some women do as she suggests and no one notices?
    Bit like council workers or civil servants – anyone notice the last dozen times either went on strike? Besides the budget managers in those organisations grateful for the wage reduction that year.

    I recall the threatened strike action by the EHRC – it was quietly cancelled by UNISON or suchlike when the lone person with even a vestige of intelligence realised that a strike action would lead people to wonder what these people did and whether anyone actually needed them at all….

  10. What a load of decadent nonsense. A bunch of middle class working-from-home women calling for all women to down tools for the day.

    Now, a strike is only effective if the person you are refusing to work for knows why you are not working. So these fucking muppets are encouraging working class girls to call in and tell their boss, “Soz, not working for you today, capitalist, patriarchal scumbag, see you tomorrow”.

    I predict;
    1. No sensible woman will heed this call to arms.
    2. Anyone who does will have exposed themselves as a fecking idiot and their boss will be lucky to have found out now, and lucky that they have a ready-made excuse for dismissal due to gross misconduct.

  11. Someone made a film about one day in America without Hispanics. Actually it looked pretty good.

    However I would like to see a film about a world without White people. Admittedly there would be a lot fewer insane feminists like Ms Valenti. African American gentleman do not reward their insane sisters in quite the same way White people do so there are fewer of them.

    The important thing about a strike, as others have noticed, is for your absence to make a difference.

  12. I hereby declare that “A Day Without a Woman” shall now be referred to by all men as “Takeaway Curry and Internet Porn Day”, the following day shall be known as “There’s a stack of dishes in the sink and a pile of laundry in the bathroom Day”

    I quite like the sound of it!

  13. Or we could have ” A Day without any Men” on this day, not only do men do no work, but everything that was ever invented/discovered by men ceases to work. Every woman is given a half full bottle of radium and nothing else, with which to complete her day’s tasks.

  14. Ironman – “Nobody at all was talking about White People and Hispanics.”

    Yeah but you were thinking about it. Go on, admit it. We won’t laugh much.

    The film was actually called A Day Without A Mexican:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0377744/

    I am mildly interested to learn that the concept has been used before – in 1924 an Austrian made a film called Die Stadt ohne Juden (The City Without Jews) about Vienna without any Jews. Apparently all the coffee shops would be turned into beer halls. You know, I am pretty sure there is at least one ethnic slur in there but I am not sure which it is. Anyway, what is interesting about that is that it predates the Nazis.

    It is interesting where these posts can take you. For instance, it occurred to me that one day without that New York woman screaming at Gavin McInnes might not be a bad thing. The one who said:

    Who’s protecting NYU from this bulls**t? Why are you here? You’re not here to protect these students from Nazis. No, you’re not! This is completely f***ed up. And these students had to f***ing face them on their own. You should be ashamed of yourselves! You should be standing up to those Nazis! You should be protecting students from hate! This is hate! These are f***ing assholes . . . you are a joke. You’re grown boys! You’re grown boys . . . and I’m disgusted! I’m a professor! How dare you! How dare you f***ing assholes protect neo-Nazis? F*** you! F*** you! F*** you! These are kids who are trying to learn about humanity! They’re trying to learn about human rights and against racism and xenophobia and LGBTQ rights, and you’re letting these f***ing neo-Nazis near here! You should kick their ass! You should! You should be ashamed of yourselves! You should! F*** that s**t. F*** that s**t. It’s not up to these students to kick the ass of a neo-Nazi! They don’t have to raise their fist! They were taught to be peaceful! F*** you! F*** you. I’m a professor. God f***ing damn it … you’re here to protect neo-Nazis! So f*** you! God f***ing damn it! Those kids should not have to take fists up to neo-Nazis, and you’re putting them in that situation! Go to hell. F*** you NYPD!

    But then I noticed that her thing is apparently lobster porn. I did not know there was such a thing as lobster porn. I suppose that is Welsh farmers get lonely up in them hills, the occasional deep sea diver might ….. well no, I don’t see that at all. But then how do you get from Ms Valenti to women dressing up as lobsters and performing sexual acts? I suppose there is a market for it. But it is not like they are squirrels or anything.

    “SMFS, you are just a knob.”

    And you are still really obsessed with my genitals.

    (On the plus side, a day without Hispanics would probably please a lot of people in Rome.)

  15. magnusw – “Every woman is given a half full bottle of radium and nothing else, with which to complete her day’s tasks.”

    And a wind screen wiper. Don’t forget the wind screen wiper.

  16. A bunch of ugly hate-filled hags are to withdraw their sexual favours and any labour they might do–beyond writing Marxian propaganda- for one day.

    What’s the purpose? Do these crazy cows imagine that one day less of their crap is going to hound Trump from office.

    If you are with any female willing to participate in such an antic you already have known for years you need to be rid of her so it won’t even be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

  17. SMFS – the Nazis didn’t create the hatred towards jews. The church did.
    For hundreds of years they denounced the Christ killers. They railed against the ‘people who act different’. And the pigeon came home to roost – there were plenty who were against the Jews, plenty more who just were not in favour of the Jews or indifferent.
    The Nazis utilised an existing societal effect and took it to its conclusion. Not that much of the rest of the Western nations felt much different at the time, just not to the same extent.

    And we know what happened then.

    As for lobster porn, I hadn’t heard of that. The mind boggles.

  18. Dennis the Peasant – “My bet is on this: If anyone is begging for sex in that household on a regular basis, it’s Valenti.”

    I have not read the book so I don’t know for sure, but I am not sure that is likely. What you mean is that Valenti is like a man who has been banging supermodels all his life and then, when he gets a bit older, panics and marries some landwhale.

    No, that’s not what I meant…

    Valenti makes it clear in Sex Object that with the single exception of a young man who backed out of marrying her “because mother didn’t approve”, she slept with a collection of losers, low-lifes and scumbags that would take your breath away. The fact that she’d admit to who she slept with (let alone publicize it) is the only really amazing thing about the book. And it would be enough to kill any husband’s desire for his wife.

    Given how humiliating Valenti’s public revelations about the sort of woman she actually is had to be to her husband, I simply cannot believe Golis would want much to do with her physically. Not self respecting man would… My bet is they are still together because (1) his concern for their child, and (2) he’s too unsure of himself to walk out.

    In all probability Jessica Valenti married Andrew Golis because he said “Yes”. Andy Warhol once said he was always surrounded by “strong women looking for a weak man to dominate them”. I suspect that’s what got Valenti interested in Golis in the first place.

    Robert Stacey McCain (The Other McCain) wrote a long review of Sex Object that is absolutely dead on. Read it rather than the book.

  19. Andrew Golis won’t get sex for a day, Take That Patriarchy!

    I’d hope that the first thing he said to Jessica was…

    “The Patriarchy is very strong. Better make it a month.”

  20. This sort of thing just beats into womens’ heads that sex isn’t a thing that is natural for them to like and want, but something they should put up with. WTF has happened? With any normal person this would be the equivalent of refusing to breath.

  21. Martin – “the Nazis didn’t create the hatred towards jews. The church did.”

    B0ll0cks. If it was down to the Church, then the Eastern Orthodox countries would be fine with Jews. You know, Russia, Romania, those sort of countries. If it was a problem with Christians in general then Jews should be fine in Muslim countries. It wasn’t the Christians that made Muahmmed kill or drive out all the Jews of Arabia.

    In fact virtually everywhere Jews live, people don’t like them. Although I am not sure about India or China. It is almost as if telling people their Gods are false and God hates them is annoying or something.

    “And the pigeon came home to roost – there were plenty who were against the Jews, plenty more who just were not in favour of the Jews or indifferent.”

    Actually you use that phrase painfully badly. The pigeons hardly came home to roost. The pigeon decided to pick on the Jews too is what you mean.

    You are basically trolling us all, right?

  22. Wouldn’t it be loverly to see Jesica on the podium the following day with a glorious shiner! No nookie rule not a hit chez vous, eh?
