Spike Lee Thinks Chi-Raq Will Inspire Sex Strikes on College Campuses to Stop Sexual Harassment and Date Rape

Spike Lee stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to discuss his upcoming film Chi-Raq. The film, a modern adaptation of Aristophones' Lysistrata, depicts women from Chicago denying men in their city sex to stop gang violence. Lee, confident his film will be shown on every college campus in America, shared with Colbert that he thinks there will be sex strikes on campuses following Christmas. Lee said that much like the protests at the University of Missouri, "a sex strike could really work on college campuses where there’s an abundance of sexual harassment and date rapes." Keeping in mind that by definition, rape doesn't need permission, that's some bold soothsaying.
