    I think it comes dangerously close to associating the two.

    •  Thank you (6+ / 0-)

      I hesitated before making that comment because this is serious and I didn't want to create the impression that I was pushing back against the Diary.

      I am not.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

    •  Yes - the "sex strike" concept is awful (3+ / 0-)

      It reinforces the idea that rape is sex and the only problem is that somebody decided to complain about it it for some, possibly bogus, reason.

      It also reinforces the idea that women provide sex as a service to men and should manipulate men by offering or withdrawing those services.  Under that scenario, no woman is anyone's sex partner - we're all just whores with different pricing strategies.
