    It is probably not something that most fathers' envision as a preferred career for their daughters. Especially not when their daughters are little.

    I think a little toddler girl wearing a "future Hooters waitress" T-shirt is a bit sick.

    I don't think Hooters is usually any kind of career choice, but rather an interim job. It just seems funny to me, that in this PC culture where we're supposed to celebrate everyone's choices without making any value judgments NOW has a problem with Hooters. Sounds like simple jealousy to me.

    It's an excellent example of the schizophrenic attitude to sexuality. "It's fine for anyone else's daughters but not mine."

    I still think this lawsuit is complete bull****. Just a bunch of petty fascists trying to force their will off on others. It's not that difficult to not buy a shirt.

    LOL!

    I guess I'm a horrible parent. When my oldest son was about 5 months old, right before we left Hawaii, I went to Hooters with him and about 5 of my girlfriends. He was wearing a little onesie that said "Can I try one?". The waitresses all thought he was adorable.

    Yes, you are a terrible parent. You essentially dangled all that free milk in front of the poor little guy, and he couldn't get any of it.

    The worst part is, I had just stopped breast feeding him less than a month before doing that.

    I think this pic sums it up.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Human motivation is complex, and while there are resemblances exist between the ideals and practices of which a culture consists, they are riddled with the same tensions that exist in biological families. Families may stand united against outside threats, but internally there are divisions. So it is with cultures. They are less of a codified list of precepts and more of a living organism, which acts according to diverse and often contradictory impulses.

    Anyway, value judgments are dangerous. They gratify the ego from which they originate, and the gratification tends to be more compelling than doing justice to the reality of the object or person they esteem or vilify. It is hard to maintain the honesty and self-criticism necessary to produce fair value judgments.

    I think this pic sums it up.
    Attractive women have been against capitalizing on sexuality, which feeds into my point about value judgments. They distort reality.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
