“Join us in helping cis men feel the physical outcomes of our regenerative rights being methodicallly dispensed with!” composed Kate Kelly, a human rights attorney.
Other ladies disagreed with Milano’s call, with some contending the challenge recommends sex is only a “dealing” exchange for women.
“Living under male controlled society has just denied me of wellbeing, self-governance, openings, and trust in our organizations,” creator Kristi Coulter composed. “Presently I should surrender sex, as well, and play into the fiction that it’s only a negotiating tool/exchange for ladies? Cherish you, yet nope.”
“You need me to deny myself the one joy men offer since what presently,” composed correspondences expert and essayist Jamilah Lemieux.
Other ladies reprimanded the thought by contending it slights ladies in the LGBTQI community.
“What on the off chance that I don’t have intercourse with cisgender men?” composed Twitter client and #writingforactivists maker Charlene Carruthers. “Does that make me a scab? I’m confused.”
