house Bill H. Con. Res. 29

Does Climate Change Have a Disparate Impact on Women That Congress Should Recognize?

Argument in favor

Women play a leading role in agriculture and food production across the world, and climate change is an imminent threat to their work and their families. The U.S. has to keep these women in mind when making policy that will directly impact their lives.

It is a bit hard to wrap our minds around how climate change would affect genders differently here in the United States, but this is clearly a reality overseas and we should have the proper lenses in place to recognize this global phenomenon within our policy.

This has no cost, but ensures that women (the primary water providers for many international communities) are included in discussions which affect their families. Why say no?

The top arguments opposed are from people who didn't even read before voting.

Argument opposed

This is a really nebulous resolution that has few specifics about what it actually wants the government to do. It is so all over the place that it even claims climate change will drive women into prostitution.

How many times do I have to think "are they kidding?" If we assume climate change is an actual thing, then why would it have more impact on women then men? Policy needs to stop accounting for gender and just address everyone as a whole.

This is a joke, right? Climate change affects us all because we are all equally human.

No. Congress has better and more important things to do.

    Climate change is a human issue and affects everyone, I would rather see a more complete and inclusive case brought to congress.

    Fertilizer shoveled by the gender studies programs at Universities. No basis in fact.

    Ok, this has no usefulness. Obviously women may be more affected in other places, but it doesn't show the way to fix it, nor can we do anything about it. Work on other more useful things.

    What women in poor countries need is access to birth control so they can control their reproductive cycles. Climate change is not a woman's issue, it's a human issue.

    This is absolutely insane. There is nothing sexist about climate change.

    The countable article made it very clear that women are responsible for home and family throughout the world. As climate change makes weather more extreme and floods lowlands, lengthens fraught and creates deserts, women bear the brunt of somehow caring for the family - elderly parents and young children. This leads to climate refugees, malnourishment, poor health, crime, misery ...

    The way this bill is phrased is to say that climate change somehow affects women in a way that it's not affecting men, and yet it doesn't present any example to support that claim. All there are are blanket statements and concepts that if you don't hate women you would agree with. On that basis I'd say yay, but I had any clue what they were trying to get it with this

    Climate change would effect everyone the same if climate change was real and not a hoax. Come on people wake up. First we were all going to freeze, that did not work. Next we were all going to catch fire and melt. That did not work. So now we have climate change. What will they come up with next when this fails? Oh crap the moon effects tides. We need to get rid of it.

    When scientists headed to the North Pole to study how much Ice had vanished because of "global warming" get stuck because there is twice the amount of ice than there used to be and need rescued, I would have to say there is just as much evidence if not more AGAINST " climate change" activism. Those in favor should pretend that every government spending action they vote for comes out of their paycheck. Do obscure unsettled agendas still tickle the fancy then? Is your paycheck worth being donated to finding out how temperatures not changing and ice packs growing affects women somewhere?

    I don't understand why congress would focus on climate change and women versus climate change and human beings regardless of gender. When we fight for women's rights and equality but then turn around and do something like this it's hypocritical.

    Women's difficulties in this world are due to human actions and accepted norms established by men and, sadly, tolerated by tired, lazy, ignorant, indifferent (any or all of these definitions) females. This proposal is simply a ploy to try to use sympathy for and/or outrage against unjust misogyny to gain support for action to protect the environment. Such action has its own merit and doesn't need some whining liberal B.S.
