Bette Middler is really angry about the new law passed by the state of Texas last weeks that put new limitations on women’s ability to get an abortion. She is so angry that she is telling Texan women not to sleep with men in protest.
Actually, she wants all American women to deny all American men coitus until something is done to ensure women’s rights in America.
#Ida reminds us that NYC’s infrastructure is totally unprepared for the #climatecrisis. More resilient #greeninfrastructure isn’t rocket science: it can include more parks, gardens, #bioswales + trees like what we’ve helped conserve + build at @nyrp for 25+ yrs pic.twitter.com/MpXGybyOLS

The famed singer and actress tweeted, “I suggest that all women refuse to have sex with men until they are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress.”
“A state has undermined the power of the federal government to protect civil rights. It has given individuals who disagree with one particular right the power to take it away from their neighbors.”
Bette Middler also tweeted that this has nothing to do with freedom of speech, writing, “This isn’t about guns, speech, money or war. It’s about women, their lives, their bodies and their autonomy. That’s what allowed the court to do shoddy work, with careless disregard, because who’s going to stop it? They only did the thing in the dead of night, without care or effort, because they believe women are so used to being gaslit that of course, they’ll just tolerate it. They did the thing in the dead of night without care or effort because they genuinely believe that they’re only women, and they deserve what they get.”
The #GOP’s plot is to keep certain people back on their heels for life. All women, but Black women especially. Because if nobody held Black women back, what would happen then? Time would really be up, right? If Black women were given their full power, old white men would be over.
“The cruelty of the #GOP is endless. We are suffering COVID-19, hurricanes, apocalyptic flooding, wildfires from hell, joblessness, homelessness, evictions, racial strife, and they pick this hideous time to pile on yet another shock to women, by taking away their right to choose,” Midler also tweeted.
