"Some (sex) workers reported up to nine reporters a day trying to film them"

Several things in the article

by TonytheTiger In reply to just really screwed up

What's screwed up?

That there are "sex trade" workers?

That they feel they're being harassed by the media?

That there is a group trying to educate the workers about their rights?

What is it that you think is screwed up?

it's my tax dollars paying for their training.

I've done a fair bit of outreach with the sex trade workers, on all the strolls here. very few of them actually need the training being offered, since most are university graduates who chose to enter the sex trade because it pays them better that their university degree would get them.

What they need is to have the laws prohibiting a "bawdy house" repealed so they can be off the street and where they can have protection from people like Robert Pickton, who was convicted on 7 counts of murdering prostitutes. [ he's the one that fed them to his pigs ]

"And people asking them things like, 'Do you feel safe? Did your friends die? Are you on drugs?' And then, 'Thanks for the story, see you later.' "

No one deserves that kind of humiliation, Davis added.


So, what kind of humiliation DO they deserve? ;\
