You heard the old joke about how the New York Times would headline a story about a giant meteor heading toward earth with a deadly force that would cause massive worldwide devastation?

Killer Asteroid Heading Toward Earth

Women and Minorities at Risk

Or how about this one:

Global Warming May Turn Women into Hookers

Hang on to your hats, my friends, that one is real. Not the headline, I made it up. But that’s exactly what a bunch of liberal Democrats in Congress are saying.

According to The Hill, about a dozen Democrats in the House, led by Barbara Lee of California, have come up with a resolution calling on Congress to acknowledge that global warming (or climate change or whatever they’re calling it this week) will hurt women more than men and could drive poor women to “transactional sex” for their very survival.

Transactional sex is a nice way of saying prostitution.

Here’s how it would work according to Ms. Lee and the others: Global warming can lead to drought and drought can lead to reduced agricultural output which can lead to less food which can lead to hungry women selling sex for money or bartering sex for a sandwich.

The resolution, which hasn’t been taken up by the House yet says, “[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.”

The resolution also says that climate change could add “workload and stresses” on female farmers, who we’re told produce most of the food in developing countries.

I knew Mitt Romney and those Neanderthal conservatives were waging a war on women but I had no idea Mother Nature was in on the act.

But is anything really new here? Isn’t transactional sex the oldest profession? Why drag global warming into the discussion? Women – (some women, not all women, my PC Police friends who are patrolling this Web site) were turning tricks for money long before anybody ever heard of Al Gore and his global warming horror stories. Maybe we should all just chill. Sorry. I couldn’t resist.

The actual NYT headline is:

World to End Tomorrow

Women, Minorities Hardest Hit, Experts Say

Apparently Global Warming was going on when I was in college. I know I was always trying to barter a steak and a few drinks for sex.

Pray for America to Wake up

Why do they care if women turn to “transactional sex”?

Shouldn’t they be able to CHOOSE what they do with their own bodies? Oh, just not in this instance?

Why should the UNITED STATES Congress give a flying leap about what happens to poor people in developing countries?

Those people are no concern of ours. The government's role is to worry about what happens here. Not about what happens out there. (Except of course for state and defense. But if the natives aren't a security threat to us then we don't need to worrry about them at all)

As the New York Times strains harder and harder to the Left, it becomes little more than a silly tool of doctrinaire Liberals.

Global Warming "could drive poor women to “transactional sex” for their very survival."

Her sexual fantasies are out of control again.

She's grabbing at straws.

No one in their right mind would have sex with her no matter how much she is paying.

Global Warming isn't going to improve her chances.

Global Warming as an aphrodisiac? If I could bottle it up and sell it, I’d be a gazillionaire!

Oh dear! That would be a new form of indignity for women. I guess we could refer to it as “the world’s newest profession” if global warming created that new crisis.
