Togo Women Withholding Sex to Oust President
But if the GOP wants to oust a sitting president, it ought to take a tip from the West African nation of Togo. The women there have been asked to withhold sex from their men for a week to demand the resignation of President Faure Gnassingbe.
At a rally on Saturday protesting electoral reforms that would help Gnassingbe’s party win re-election, the women’s wing of civil rights group Let’s Save Togo announced the one-week sex strike. The group’s leader, Isabelle Ameganvi, said in an interview, “We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo.”
Is this the next step for the GOP? Mitt Romney has gone birther, so you never know - the desperation is showing. If you’re not up for a sex strike to help your country, you could at least express your political views with your choice of condoms.
