The Right Stuff believes it is axiomatic that women have the power to civilize men, up to and including certain unpleasant male tendencies, such as invading other nations. Ukrainian women appear to share this faith in feminine power, as evidenced in a fresh campaign designed to curb or even turn back Russia’s territorial aggressiveness.
“With the White House, European Union and NATO failing to stop the annexation of Crimea, Ukrainian campaigners are now trying a different approach to ending Moscow’s aggression – urging women to abstain from sex with Russian men.
“The activists are selling a T-shirt with the message ‘Don’t give it to a Russian,’ alongside a pair of hands making the shape of a vagina.
“The shirts also feature a line from Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko: ‘O dark-browed maidens fall in love, but not with the Moskals [a Ukrainian ethnic slur referring to Russians].’ ... ”
“The shirts go for 250 Ukrainian hryvnia (about $23) and the group has had about 200 orders from its Facebook page, which has more than 1,800 likes since it was set up seven days ago.”
Proceeds benefit the hasty rebuilding of the Ukraine armed forces.
