@charlescwcooke ...I'm sorry, but did Barbara Lee just suggest that global warming will turn women into hookers?—

Why yes. Yes she did.
In a new resolution, Rep. Lee and 12 other congressional Democrats warn that climate change could be worse than we’d ever imagined:
The resolution, from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and a dozen other Democrats, says the results of climate change include drought and reduced agricultural output. It says these changes can be particularly harmful for women.
“[F]ood 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, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health,” it says.
That’s right, kids. Hotter temperatures could drive women to “transactional sex.” Also, herpes.
This is bad. This is very, very bad.
Don’t you feel better, America?
