Now we will see a surge in 'kitchen fires' and 'honor killings', I'm sure. Maybe some gang rapes, too.

I hope the womens' plan works, those guys are a bit rougher on them than American men on their women.
2002-12-24 12:30:05 PM  
Ummm ladies. Witholding sex does not make men more calm or peaceful.
2002-12-24 01:23:26 PM  
Without sex, things like backyard wrestling get started, natural progression only leads to nuclear exchange.
2002-12-24 01:25:01 PM  
Yeah, I think lots of weed and farking their brains would work better than withholding sex, which will just push them into farking each other or war-crime rape.
2002-12-24 01:25:02 PM  
Good luck with that

Lysistrata rocks!

Damn you Azrael for stealing my thunder. I finally get to show off my Classical Studies minor and here you are beating me to the punch. :(
2002-12-24 01:27:12 PM  
I'd strike it

"I hate war"

Hmm. Deep. Makes ya think, don't it.
2002-12-24 01:27:47 PM  
I might be wrong...but isn't this part of the country where the men squirt acid in the womens' faces if they "think" they've been bad??

I really don't think by "holding the poontang" is gonna end anything, except a murder/beating/acid bath?
2002-12-24 01:28:01 PM  
I think I'd be more prone to rape and pillage, but that's just me.

"there are direct parallels with Aristophanes's play"

Was this written by a 3 year old? That extra s is incorrect, although at least they didn't do the "Aristophane's" thing.
2002-12-24 01:29:22 PM  
Guess I'd have to go back to having sex with someone I love. Me.
2002-12-24 01:30:04 PM  
This is the best idea since prohibition!
2002-12-24 01:30:49 PM  
Well, a large portion of Africa is not a good place to be if you're a woman.

When the bathroom only has ghetto tampons at work, it's small potatoes compared to getting your clit razored off and your hoo-hah sewn shut at age 5.
2002-12-24 01:30:57 PM  
That woman will be killed by a peace loving religous extremist.

From what I uderstand, this is the normal progression of a muslim marriage anyway... Guy works his ass off to make enough to support a woman while she's beeing busting her but to stay thin. They get married, have about 4 years of freakin' before she gets all fat and dumpy. Probably why they've been killing eachother already.

Damn that ejacutaltion control conspiricy!

Ironbar's profile: does that have anything to do with Ren and Stimpy by chance?
2002-12-24 01:32:26 PM  
Screwed up my preposition.
2002-12-24 01:33:11 PM  
BRAVO, and for all you guys that say that this wouldn't work. Try living in a country that women are hard to come by, you'd be suprised how much you'd rather fark than fight.

I don't know, I got more when I was in uniform than any other time in my life.

'Course, I was more fit than any other time... na, must have been the boots and beret.

Women can't control themselves - this is doomed.

Yes it does. The secret fan club.

You're right Mr. Marx, that does sound like a great idea.
2002-12-24 01:36:19 PM  
Excuse me?

Come on them instead. The stomach or inner thigh.

Happy Jesus' Birthday, Ironbar.

They show it all the time on this nicktoons channel I have on digital cable. No commercials, either. No real ones, anyway.

Going back and watching it... I think I know why I'm so farked up. Kids don't know it's all a joke- they teach some pretty farked up things in there. Aside from shaving cream in Dad's shoes and whatnot.
2002-12-24 01:40:58 PM  
I would think the opposite would be true. No sexual release -> more tension -> more fighting. Fark long, fark often, fark for peace!
2002-12-24 01:43:15 PM  
no sex in sudan? love it - the world needs less sudanese people anyway.
2002-12-24 01:44:17 PM  
and with genetic engineering we may just have his Peace in a little while. Giant dung beetles ahoy!

Be sure to leave your shavings in the sink tonight!

Ren & Stimpy are preparing for Yaksmas, the wonderful holiday where Stinky Weezelteats and his sidekick Blue Shaven Yak visit and leave great gifts, such as hot-link sausages and pre-chewed gum
2002-12-24 01:45:31 PM  
Seeing as AIDS is destroying Africa faster and more completely than war, this is probably a very wise move.
2002-12-24 01:46:54 PM  
Ahh, this is going to work so well. Not.
Say, does this remind anyone of the hippie era? Peace and love, etc.
2002-12-24 01:55:00 PM  
"No sexual release -> more tension -> more fighting"

That's me in a nutshell. Good show

These women are either incredibly smart, or mind numbingly dumb. We will see here in a few weeks, I guess. You guys are right about the men not being entirely understanding, warm and sensitive with their women.

Then again, it could actually work. These women finally figured out what makes the world go round. If you boil it down, every single action a man takes is directly related to getting some. Bridges are built, buildings erected, civilizations advanced merely because men think it will get them laid more - either directly or indirectly.

Directly - she isn't going to give it up if he doesn't have a house, so he builds a house.
Indirectly - he needs cash to buy her pretty things, so he works for pay. The work he does advances civilization.

With every breath a man asks himself : will this positively influence my chances of getting laid?

Why get a college degree? To get a better job, to be able to have a better lifestyle, to better compete with other guys for the chicks.
Why wake up on a Saturday to mow the yard? Cause two weekends ago I didn't and she got upset and I didn't get any.
Why pick up a rifle and go to war against some other nation? a) make sure your country survives so you can go back to scoring with your woman, and b) maybe while you are in some other country you will meet a native girl and get laid.

Conversely, if a guy known in no uncertain terms that doing something is going to prevent him from getting laid, he isn't going to do it. Period.

Woman says 'If you go back to war you can forget about farking me' war stops.
Woman says 'I can't get in the mood with all these dirty dishes in the sink' you can bet the dishes are going to get washed pretty dang quick.

The day we can start buying Replicants like we saw in Blade Runner (not the crap real dolls, but actual Replicants) expect to see a massive power shift in the world. But until then, women control the number one energy source in the galaxy, enough power to make the world go around.

Good luck over there ladys, I hope you succeed. Tell those guys to quit fighting before Bush decides he needs to demonstrate the true power of this battlestation.

Happy Jesus' Birthday, Ironbar.

...and the same to you.
2002-12-24 01:58:49 PM  
Yeah, this is great.

Since after all, men are the only ones who have any interest in sex. We all know that women never want sex!

Did these guys get their ideas of gender relations from Three's Company?

"One, two, three, four,
You can't fark us any more !;
five, six, seven, eight,
Just keep away and masturbate !"

Jeebus, if anyone had a face for a sex strike, then that lady would have it.

"No sex for you !"
"Um, ok lady."

I wouldn't hit that with a large stick

All this sex talk is getting me worked up. I think my honey is going to have a very merry Christmas.

In other news, the advertisers have obviously invented the THE MOST goddam annoying pop-up ever. You go girls !

2002-12-24 02:34:42 PM  
Glonoin, did you ever meet a Dr. Manning at A&M. Believe it or not he teaches an entire course that basically says what your post said. Yup, a whole class on sex and what men will do to get it and why.
The women have the right idea with a peaceful protest with in their realm of control. However if these men can't get it the usual way they will resort to violence. They consider their wives property...with a purpose.
2002-12-24 02:48:28 PM  
Oh my god!

All this time my wife has been a peace activist.

And here I was thinking she was just an ice princess.....

Glonoin, did you ever meet a Dr. Manning at A&M.

Oh man I had this great reponse explaining that Dr. Manning and I go way back, that it was originally my idea and when I was discussing it with him, asking for his opinion him he asked if he could use that in his classwork ...

but I am not good at telling 'not the truth' so I deleted it all and have to say that I have never met him.

Once again I have come up with an incredible idea. Not a particularly original idea, but a good idea nonetheless. Happened with my damn 'use hot air in a bag to fly' idea, my 'record my friend's records to cheap blank tapes and sell them for profit' idea, my 'take these little corn kernels and put them in dirt and pour water on them' idea, and my 'run electricity through a thin wire to make light' idea too (over the past 35 years.)

It is funny - what would you do for sex? Look around, who you have become, what you own, what you know, and all that surrounds you ... all pretty much driven by your erotic desires. Maybe that is why women find rich guys so appealing?
