Why Climate Deniers Are Sexualizing The Young Women At The Centre Of The Debate - 2020-03-07
Nothing makes conservative men opposing climate progress more uncomfortable than an opinionated woman.
Greta Thunberg's work is legendary, even at 17. She's worked to create awareness about the dangers of climate change, met with world leaders to discuss the importance of harnessing alternative energy sources, and proposed tangible solutions to potential future climate issues.
Her stance has attracted the attention of critics wishing to silence her, including through the use of unsolicited and explicit sexual comments. An Alberta oil company, X-Site Energy Services, recently took responsibility for a sticker that appeared to depict Thunberg, a minor, in a violent sexual position. A half-hearted attempt at an apology can't mask how predatory and revolting a move it was on the firm's part.
