You probably haven’t heard of House Resolution 36, but it takes the global warming/climate argument to a bizarre new level. Brought to the floor by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), the resolution outlines the impact that climate change has on women. In fact, the impact is so dire, it may force women into prostitution as a means for survival.
“Well, the Democratic Party has found a new consequence of climate change: Prostitution,” Pat explained on radio this morning. “Barbara Lee issued a resolution staying a climate change can cause food and water shortages, which can lead impoverished women to prostitution as a means of income. Clearly, climate change leads to prostitution.”
According to the resolution, “food-insecure 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 [sexually transmitted infections], unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”
“We all knew this was true, and it's finally confirmed,” Stu concluded. “If Barbara Lee says it, it's true.”
