Janelle Monáe clarifies no sex protest comments

Janelle Monáe recently took to Twitter to clarify her comments on her suggestion that women should refuse to have sex as a protest for better rights.

“I don’t think that, but I do get frustrated when women’s rights are trampled on and disregarded. And we must demand our agency,” she tweeted.

She went on to clarify that the political environment and recent events had shaped her comments: “Sometimes you give interviews right after the ‘leader of the free world’ has a meeting to discuss women’s issues with a room full of men… and it’s very frustrating. But no, I don’t think sex is a bargaining tool… I just wonder how these people got born and raised. then I remember that choosing a partner for a co-parent is important. Because those values are passed down for generations. Hotep to hotep…. Sexist to Sexist.”
