You have to show some respect to the Rio streetwalkers—they're working hard for their money. I'm not sure we would expect America's women of the night to start learning Portuguese en mass if they knew foreign tourists were coming.
From The Big Story:
Prostitutes in one of Brazil’s biggest cities are beginning to sign up for free English classes ahead of this year’s Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
The president of the Association of Prostitutes of the city of Belo Horizonte says by telephone that 20 have already signed up for the courses and she expects at least 300 of the group’s 4,000 members to follow suit. The association is organizing the classes and seeking volunteer teachers.
Prostitution is legal in Brazil.
Belo Horizonte will host six World Cup matches and Vieira said Tuesday “it will be important for the girls will be able to use English to let their clients know what they are charging and learn about what turns them on.”
Uh, wait. Prostitution is legal in Brazil? Does anyone recognize why this is kind of weird? Wasn't it a huge deal when the guy spent $780,000 to deflower Brazil's Catarina Migliorini [above], but it had to be done over international waters because of the prostitution problem, so they did the deed in a plane? Why didn't they just get a room at the Rio Hilton?
Why is no one else so concerned about these MASSIVE weird news discrepancies? I feel like Alex Jones right now.
