Dems: Climate change may lead poor women to sex work Sam Wood, PHILLY.COM Posted: Monday, April 29, 2013, 4:16 PM

Climate change will lead poor women to opt for "sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage" warns a resolution proposed last week in Congress.

Introduced by a group of Democrats, the resolution calls on both the House and Senate to recognize how women will be disproportionately affected by global warming.

Women are "the first to feel the immediate and adverse effects of social environmental and economic stress on their families and communities," the document states, adding that 60 to 80 percent of farmers in developing countries are women.

It points to a United Nations report that estimates 3 billion more people might spiral into extreme poverty if governments don't take coordinated action.

Women, it says, will also feel the brunt of a harsher climate if it brings on increased migration, refugee crises and conflicts over food and water.

If a food crisis emerges, it says women may be drawn to sex work that would put them at risk for HIV, sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy.

The resolution - H. Con. Res. 36 introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.).........

I thought Democrats thought sex work was perfectly wonderful, normal work.

Maybe it’s early marriage scenario they are really worried about.

It’s more likely the job destruction machine, created by tax spending liberals, is more likely to lead women to support themselves and their families through selling their bodies.

The heterosexual marriage part just sends Democrats through the roof ~ they won’t have it ~ and they stomp their feet about it.

Let me see if I can get this straight.

Women are equal to men in every way.

Women are so weak that they will suffer the effects of false climate change and be forced into prostitution.

Muslims say the same thing happens after jihad when a nation prohibits slavery. Imam have said this is why Mohammed was so wise to allow sex slaves after conquering a nation. It keeps the women from becoming prostitutes.

An empty statement by a bunch of liars to recognize a false conclusion arising from a phony premise ...

Don’t just snicker when dems use fear porn on low information voters. They keep up a constant barrage of it, and some sticks. We always need to fight this, but not only with a rebuttal at face value. We need to point out the tactic so that low information voters kno its just fear porn. Ridicule work well.

So they think that’s all women can do to survive?
How sexist of them.

It won’t lead them to innovate, invent and create entrepreneurial ventures that might solve problems, create opportunities and generate profits?
Do they think only men can do such things?

What are they saying about women?

In many if not most human societies down through history, they would have been more or less correct.

Women had very limited ways of making a living, and a great many were indeed forced into prostitution by the other option being starvation.

Under the Taliban, for instance, and in other rigidly traditional Muslim societies, prostitution is pretty much the only option for a widow or orphan.

Obamacare and the other disastrous democrat rat policies that are wrecking the economy will lead to people going into prostitution.

LOL. The real question is whether the Philly Inquirer was serious when it posted this article — that is, they buy into the idea that “climate change” is going to force women into prostitution — or whether they were posting it to point out how silly the claim is.

“What? The never ending lunacy of the left...”

Looks like Barbara Lee is Hank (Guam is Capsizing) Johnson’s “sister.” This is our Black Babs (from Berzerkley) as opposed to the Capo Jew (aka Babs “Call Me Senator” Brooklyn Transplant) over in Marin County. Thank the Lord there are hills between where we live and Berzerkley. The effluent has to “leak over” to reach us. FYI Barbara Lee came to California from El Paso, TX, so she’s another “transplant.” California was a nice place. We should not have let this trash in in the first place. But just think you CA bashers, this woman’s children may have the idea of moving to where you live.

How about stop blasting the men and the children to bits with hellfire missiles launched by drones from up in the sky?

Maybe some poor husbands might actually then still be alive.

Maybe stop flying your jets to travel from place to place or travel, where guys like Obama and co. have to take a long motorcade of gas-guzzling cars along with them, and release more CO2 than an army of ordinary people?

Some citizens might actually be able to use gas to get themselves to work.

How about not taking one third of the special presidential vacations, and stop making excuses about how hard you work?

The nation might night be down the drain in debt.
