SORT BY Relevancy
By now you have heard that Spike Lee's controversial film about Chicago gun violence, "Chiraq" is a take off from the old Greek play "Lysistrata" in which the women unite to withhold sex from the men until they agree to a truce and end the war. A special premier of the film is scheduled for the Chicago Theater this Sunday at 7pm. Today's guests, some of whom participated in the filming of Chiraq here in Chicago, will look at the film's message - women who unite to withhold sex from their gangbanging men to stop the killing on Chicago's streets. With all of the latest tragic shootings, taking the lives of innocent young people, is this a strategy women ought to consider? City officials have accused Spike Lee of making light of the situation with his film, but what do film participants think? What do you think of the idea? Could women stop violence with a sex boycott?

Women - are we fed up enough with the violence, the war, the killing? Are we fed up enough with guns mowing down our children, guns snatching away our husbands, guns maiming and killing our loved ones, are we fed up enough to use the ultimate weapon? We're calling on EVERY WOMAN, EVERYWHERE to BOYCOTT SEX UNTIL GUN VIOLENCE STOPS! Let's take the idea from old Greek play Lysistrata, (first presented on stage in 400 B.C.E. and re-made several times over the past 20 years), and simply STOP all sexual relations until the gun violence ceases. Then, only those men who agree to keep the peace should be allowed the benefits of intimacy with a woman. This is The Female Solution. WE HAVE THE POWER TO END VIOLENCE. IT'S TIME TO USE IT! What do you think?
