House Democrats: Climate Change Turns Women Into Prostitutes
Independent Journal Review ^ | 1/10/2014 | Emily Hulsey

Posted on 01/11/2014 6:37:47 AM PST by Beave Meister

The Democratic party has found a new consequence of climate change: prostitution. Rep. Barbara Lee and twelve other House Democrats issued a resolution stating that climate change can cause food and water shortages, which could lead impoverished women to turn to prostitution as a means of income:

“[I]nsecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” it says.

More broadly, the resolution says climate change will hurt “marginalized” women, such as refugees, sexual minorities, adolescent girls, and women and girls with HIV. It also cites Hurricane Katrina as evidence of how climate change can affect women, noting that the storm displaced “over 83 percent of low-income, single mothers” in the region.

The purpose of the resolution was to call on Congress and the President to “recognize the effects on women, and to use ‘gender-specific frameworks in developing policies to address climate change.’”

In the grand scheme of things, this resolution doesn’t really accomplish anything or make much of a difference. However, it does epitomize the way that our culture uses climate change as an explanation for everything these days, while masking (and therefore hindering) the real problem.

I don't know about this one, but I'm sure climate change CAN impact you if you're already a prostitute. It's harder to drum up business in a parka and galoshes.

You’d think the House and Senate democrats would welcome new blood into the party.

Maybe rep Barbara Lee needs to fork over more tax money to help her fellow sisters.

When will women start to take a stand against liberals? Don’t they get sick of being used as a class for a phony agenda?

Climate change isn’t costing people jobs. The jug-eared half-caucasian Marxist in the White House is costing people jobs. And I guess the House Dems are mad that women can always find some work, because they follow their leader and think that NO ONE should have an independent means of income.

I know we can’t require a test before allowing people to vote (even though we should).... but surely we can initiate some laws requiring all Congresspersons and Senators to pass intelligence tests.

Due to democratic economic policies, prostitution is already overcrowded. Pimps have had to lay off many of their employees. Illegal immigrant prostitutes are putting American Prostitutes out of work by undercutting their prices. The DNC, one of the largest employers of pimps and hos is faced with having to close brothels in most red states. 0bama is considering a bail out. Proposed by former president Bill Clinton who says that prostitution is to big to fail, 0bama is about to issue an executive order to pump billions of dollars into the biggest service industry in the US. Hopefully this will not be a day late and a dollar shy. Only time will tell.

Two can play this crazy game.

The high cost and taxes of Obamacare could lead impoverished women to turn to prostitution as a means of income.

Attention Congressional geniuses in 2013 the US had record harvests despite climate change. Note also 40% of the US corn crop is not going to food but to the heavily government subsidized ethanol boondoggle.

I’d love to see the GOP counter with a resolution that the Democrat Party is a danger to women, especially unborn women, and that subjecting women to goofy psuedo-science hoaxes could push them into dangerous behaviors such as putting them in tiny little cars with less safety protection in the event of a crash.

With some hilarity, it should be pointed out to Rep. Barbara Lee(D) that she is, in effect, citing “Jungle Fever” as the reason for prostitution.

That is, “Jungle Fever” used to explain why, on hot and humid summer nights, younger black people tended to foment trouble, fight, and generally make a nuisance.

In other words if you see her out walking the streets and lowering the price drastically you can blame climate change.

Is she afraid of losing her Job?

Why I'm shocked, shocked I say! How dare they be so non-PC! Why do they think only women will turn to prostitution? Are they anti-gay? We must march with our gay prostitute brethren!

Do they think people will only turn to prostitution and not crime? We must arm ourselves! ... oh, wait, that's not part of the left's agenda...

Do they think this economic downturn won't impact "undocumented workers?" We must march with our illegal, er, guest workers!


I tell 'ya, I can believe she made such a non-inclusive statement! ;-/

That would kill two birds with one stone because then the prostitutes who pose as police women ( i mean those police women who pose as prostitutes could get it back in fines and it would keep moving back and forth and every thing would be fine.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

how can one possibly write “gender-specific frameworks” and “climate change” in the same sentence!!?!?!??

...surely setting up a “framework” that is “gender specific” would be unconstitutional? oh that’s right, so long as it’s not for “men only” then it’s ok....

That said, while very stupid, go and Google “radfem piv”. You’ll see some of the most insane people & opinions I’ve ever heard....this is tame!
