An obfuscation designed to give pimps and others who have never spent a day in their lives being fucked for money, a legitimate voice. This drowns out the vouces of actual people in prostitution.
Pimp: I'm a sex worker and want pimps decriminalised

Actual person in prostitution: I don't.

Webcammers: We're sex workers and we support sex workers.

Public: Listen to sex workers

Actual person in prostitution: No one is listening.
