"We just want (the sex trade workers [read, "hookers"]) to be aware of what their rights are around media, including the fact that it is legal for (media [read, "people who can't find Brittany"]) to take a picture of them on a public street," Porth said.

And the consequences of the workers not having this information would be . . . what?

"We find sometimes that media attention to the area can be a little less than compassionate and we don't want them to feel like animals in a zoo during that time, we prefer that they feel more like the whores that they are."

*SNORKS!!!* at M'ville!

Animals in the zoo get more respect, for those of you "sex trade workers" out there... jus' sayin'...

GOod one, Margaritaville.

They're concerned that the hookers will get screwed.
