Janelle Monae Urges Women To Refrain From Having Sex With Men Until “Every Man Is Fighting For Our Rights”

Janelle Monae has an unorthodox method for convincing men to hop on board of the women’s rights movement. The songstress is proposing that women become celibate for the cause! Check out the details below and let us know what you think….

The actress and singer, 31, revealed in a new interview that until every man is fighting for womens’ rights, she believes ladies should hold off on having sex.

“People have to start respecting the vagina,” she told Marie Claire for their “Fresh Faces” issue. “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.”

The “Hidden Figures” actress also explained her reasoning behind the proposal, and maintained the importance of women being able to recognize their own worth and power.

“[Evil men] don’t deserve to be in my presence,” she continued. “If you’re going to own this world and this is how you’re going to rule this world, I am not going to contribute anymore until you change it. We have to realize our power and our magic. Because I am all about black-girl magic, even though I’m standing with all women. But this year? This year, I am so carefree black girl.”

Monáe’s proposition echoes Aristophane’s classic Greek comedy “Lysistrata,” in which the titular main character attempts to end the Peloponnesian War by convincing her fellow Greek women to withhold sex from men until they sign a peace treaty. Her clever plan aimed to take advantage of the men’s deepest desire, and the text is notable for its early exploration of a woman’s role in a male-dominated society. – via nydailynews

Easy for her to say, Wordondastreet is Janelle doesn’t even like men! Women would die celibate with cobwebs in their vaginas if they waited for “every man” to fight for women’s rights. Nowadays, many women are worse than men when it comes to their desire for sex so we don’t see too many women holding out either. We do understand her point about the power of the P though and women recognizing their own worth and power! What do you think of Janelle Monae’s suggestion?
