The people who frequent Hooters, for some reason, seem way more skeevy to me than the people who frequent strip clubs.

I used to live 3 floors above the only Hooters in the country (not US, obviously) and I only went in a couple of times cause they had unlimited mediocre chicken wings on a Monday.

I didn't really see the appeal.

Ah yes. The cops were there for "security"

See, i thought that too. My friends and I even joked about that, until we saw how the crowd was acting. The security/cops there all looked very pissed off and stressed. When you have a crowd of 200 drunk, rowdy, and horny men trying to basically surprise sex a few women and its your job to keep them safe there isn't ime for oggling or fun.

I should mention the cops and security were also being accosted/molested as guys tried to fight through them to touch the girls. Before you ask how I noticed this its because my friend's gf gave us "good seats" that was along the path they walked so we got to see them up close without having to fight through a mob/barely controlled riot. It honestly looked like a a scene from a hosed up movie.

A long time ago my coworkers tried to convince me to move to Houston to be closer to the team. They took me to a twin peaks as a demonstration of all Houston had to offer. It took 30 minutes to find parking and then we waited for another hour to be seated before we gave up and ate somewhere else. Needless to say I got the full Houston experience.

I had a team of 12 people out of our Syracuse NY office years ago (like 2002 maybe?) and a Hooters had opened up in the big stupid mall there. One of the guys on my team had won 'lunch for your office' thing there, and told us all he was taking us to lunch, but didn't tell us where. Anyway, the 7 women on the team were good sports about it even as I loudly proclaimed i had nothing to do with it 5000 times. most of the team being pretty blue collar they didn't have the good taste to get angry about it i guess

edit: this is the same guy who every time I would walk in the office would pretend he was on a phone call having a very important conversation with a customer. he didn't realize that the line light on the phone wasn't lit

I respect people doing whatever it takes to survive in the hell world and maybe if it were a worker-owned co-op I'd feel better about it. Then again I'd still feel weird that someone is pretending to like me for a paycheck, even though on some level most (all?) our relationships are transactional. Even weirder that sex is a part of it.

When people say legalize sex work, they mean two things, generally, imo
1) Protect the sex workers by giving them a legal standing
2) Sex work should be based on mutual respect and dignity, even if the current system doesn't work that way

Creepy boomers ogling fast food workers doesn't fit into any of the underlying ideas behind these points.

I mean, hooters employees are free to engage in sex work though? If it's ok to pay them for sex why isn't it ok for someone else to pay them less for leering at them? I don't have a dog in this fight outside of people should be allowed to engage in whatever employment they're willing to do, and again, if you're fit for hooters you can certainly get a job at a strip joint or scrub-n-tug. Maybe goons and everyone else should stop telling young women what they should be allowed to do for a living?

if you're not bright enough to understand the difference between actual sex work and oogling at a lovely wing joint, then yeah, the nordic education system has failed us all. And I say that as a fan of your posting.

I see the difference, I'm just saying that OP doesn't understand the arguments he's appealing to. And the argument "you should just let people do whatever they want" is fundamentally invalid (in all situations, not just this one), because most people don't do their jobs because they choose to do the given job, but because they choose not to starve in a ditch.

Also I'm not Nordic

it's legal for someone to pay them starvation wages for being ogled and sexually harassed, yes

Whether it's "OK" depends on if you're an rear end in a top hat (or a libertarian) .... but I repeat myself


If, for instance, we had a UBI or GMI or some other system whereby people wouldn't die in the street without whatever job they could find, then sure.

And no one is telling young women what jobs they should take, we're telling Hooters patrons that they're skeevy and supporting bad poo poo, there's a huge difference

Sounds good. I would like that. All I ask is that those leading the prayer be young men.

I am a Church of Christ preacher and I am a member of the Church of Christ and we take the New Testament literally.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35:

"Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."
