Copenhagen’s global warming conference has just heated up after the city’s mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to 160 Copenhagen hotels, asking that delegates refrain from utilizing the city’s (legal) prostitution. In response, the Sexworkers Interest Organization (SIO) has organized a retaliatory position, which is: delegates who disregard the mayor and seek out prostitutes will receive free sex. Said SIO Spokeswoman Susanne Moller to Danish website Avisen.dk of the mayor,
“Ritt Bjerregaard is abusing her position as Lord Mayor in using her power to prevent us carrying out our perfectly legal job. I don’t understand how she can be allowed to contact people in this way.”
Call it a science lesson, Mayor Bjerregaard; when a low pressure front refuses to bow to a high pressure front, you get a storm. Thanks to FoxNews for calling my attention to this story.
