Is Janelle Monae Serious With This “Sex Strike” Stuff?
The singer told Marie Claire,
“People have to start respecting the vagina. Until every man is fighting for our rights, we should consider stopping having sex. I love men. But evil men? I will not tolerate that.”
After receiving some mean side eyes and some tweets, Janelle clarified her statement explaining that she gets frustrated when women’s rights are trampled on and disregarded. She did clarify that she doesn’t think that sex is a bargaining tool, but she does want to know how some of these people got born and raised. She went on to rant that choosing a [good] partner to co-parent is important because such values get passed down for generations from “hotep to hotep”.
People weren’t even trying to hear Janelle’s explanation, and the hotep part got people going too. Check out some of the hilarious reactions below. I’ll just let you know women aren’t going for it. It must be the power of the D! LOL
