Striking has been around for a long time. They come in the form of strikes, boycotts, and demonstrations. When striking first became a thing, it was for job rights, pay, and fair and equal hiring. Then things like boycotting came around, I boycotted and still do Target for the bathroom issue. Demonstrations are more or less a group of people just bringing attention to their cause. Lately we have stupidity striking. We have kids striking (walking out of school) in protest against guns and climate issues. Then we have Alyssa Milano and her sex strike.
Her is a little history lesson about striking. The Jamestown Polish craftsmen’s strike of 1619 took place in the settlement of Jamestown in the Virginia colony. It was the first documented strike in North America. Skilled Polish craftsmen were sent by the Virginia Company to Jamestown to produce pitch, tar, and turpentine used for shipbuilding. When the colony held its first election in 1619, the Polish workers were not allowed to vote on the grounds that they were not of English origin, so they went on strike. Due to the importance of the skilled workers in producing valuable naval stores for the colony, company leaders bowed to labor pressure and gave full voting rights to the Polish workers. The next one was workers and farmers marched to the mill owners’ houses and threw rocks and insults. This was the first factory strike in the United States and the first strike involving women. Built in 1793, Slater Mill was the first textile factory in the United States. Usually striking is related to work, pay, and stuff like that. Typically, workers cannot be fired for going on strike. The NLRA protects the right of workers to strike and prohibits employers from terminating employees for exercising this right, but it only protects lawful strikes.
As everyone has seen on twitter and other social media, there is now a sex strike until as stated by Alyssa, “we (women) get bodily autonomy back.” Such bills, Milano said, will affect communities of color more than any others. “Any woman of privilege that lives in one of these states, if this goes through, they’re going to be able to travel to a state to get a safe reproductive healthcare,” she told Cuomo. “But for the women of color, for the women that are marginalized, for the women that are (in) low-income communities… these bills are going to be catastrophic.” Does she not realize why Planned Parenthood, who is one of the largest promoters of abortion was started. To kill off the black race. Well if you ask me, making abortion illegal would actually help blacks instead of hurting them. Also, what happened to being responsible for your body, keep your legs together, don’t get pregnant, in other words, don’t be a damn slut.
I read yesterday about how the woman who is “Roe” came out and admitted that her whole story was nothing but a lie. She was not raped. She said she regrets doing what she did, she feels, now being a born again Christian, this this is her biggest sin because of the death to 1000s of babies as a result of her being the plaintiff to get it legalized. I understand rape happens, but in all honesty, all legalizing abortion has done is given women another form of birth control. There is really nothing that can “threaten a woman’s life” when giving birth now because there is better medical technology, you can get a C-section early on whereas the baby and the mother will both be safe. The only legitimate reason for getting an abortion, and I still don’t believe in abortion for any reason at all, is rape. In my opinion, have the baby and put it up for adoption, but to abort it is still wrong in any way, shape, or form.
The stats found here show, based on the latest state-level data, approximately 879,000 abortions in the United States in 2017, which is down from approximately 892,000 abortions in 2016 and 913,000 abortions in 2015. Black women were more than 3.5 times more likely in 2015 than white women. As you can see before, the lowest amount for reason to have one is rape. The rest are selfish reasons if you ask me. Fetal health problems…. most can be surgically fixed before the baby is born or immediately after, physical problem is Down Syndrome or something like that. The ones after that to me are all 100% selfish reasons whereas adoption is a perfect solution. In other words, outside of rape, which one cannot help happening (unless you use your 2nd amendment and carry a gun), the rest are doing things that you should not be doing if you are not ready to handle the responsibility that comes with it, A BABY. I do not believe in abortion at all, but if it must be legalized, it must be for only rape, not because your not getting a perfect child, not because you couldn’t keep your legs together.
So basically, if you want to stop having sex in order to keep abortion legalized then you are hurting no one but yourself. In fact, you are helping create less abortions and are doing all us logical Americans a favor by not having sex and risking getting pregnant. I hope this strike goes on for a very long time. Our reasons may be different, but the outcome is on our side, not yours.
On March 15, Strike 4 Climate, tens of thousands of high-school and middle-school students in more than 30 countries skipped school to demand that politicians treat the global climate crisis as the emergency it is. My opinion about this one is they definitely need to stay in school, take a little more science and learn that the earth and moon are on cycles, they rotate. We have been having ice ages since the beginning of time, they just are not as bad as they were back then. It will get hotter and colder throughout your lifetime all because of rotation. Here is some history of temperatures for you: Highest temperature ever recorded was 134.1 °F on 10 July 1913 in Furnace Creek (Greenland Ranch), California, United States, notice how long ago that was. Here is a list of extreme temperatures in the United States and as you will notice, it has been really hot and really cold in extremes that you can not even imagine throughout history. It will always do that. The ice caps are not melting for good, they will freeze back up, this is not permanent. Cows do not need to stop farting.
Gun strikes are happening, mainly by kids. This was inspired by the high-school students in Parkland, Florida, who began protesting gun violence after 14 of their fellow classmates and three school staffers were killed on February 14, 2018. Now I understand your upset, I would be upset too if someone came into my school and shot it up, but it is not the guns fault. No gun has ever killed anyone by itself. Protesting the NRA will not stop gun violence. If you want to blame someone, blame the police who did nothing when they were warned way ahead of time of the shooting. Blame Mental Health who let him slip through their fingers. There were so many people who could have stopped this, but to say that guns and NRA are to blame is just not right.
So anyway, as you can tell people seem to think that striking will get you what you want. In some cases it will, in some it won’t, but when you want to protest about abortion by cutting yourself off from sex, it just reminds me of a kid holding their breath till they get the candy they want. They won’t die and they won’t get the candy. They wont even turn blue because they just can’t hold their breath that long. So go ahead, do what you should have been doing all along, keep those legs together, stop having free sex with anyone you Netflix and chill with, anyone that you have a few drinks with, mostly stop putting yourself in situations where you might get raped (I am in reference to girls who want to hang out along with guys and drink and do stupid shit that they know could get them in trouble, rape is always rape, no matter why it happened). I say we go back to the basics, make abortion legal only for reason of rape, it must be proven, must be a prosecution, and lets stop using it for birth control, go get some rubbers or birth control pills for that.
