    The restaurants in San Francisco, San Bruno, Sacramento and Orange County are classified as “adult entertainment” establishments but also serve minors, NOW’s California chapter said in papers filed with police and prosecutors.

    What’s more, the organization said, Hooters provides child menus, high chairs and booster seats, and sells T-shirts in children’s sizes that identify the wearer as a “Future Hooters Girl.”
    Part of me hates Hooters.
    Part of me wants this to go through.

    But another part of me also doesn't give a ****.
    This other part of me also notices that little girls wear skimpy clothes and shirts that say "My Mom is a Milf" and so much more - which their parents also buy.

    If they're going to have issues they need to confront the PARENTS - not the establishments who are merely catering to what the PARENTS are willing to purchase.
    If they weren't going to purchase said items or bring said children then there wouldn't be an issue.

    So, even though I'm conflicted - I say **** 'em, NOW should back off of something that is really NOT an issue at this present moment in time.

    One thing that irritates me to the extreme is when people assume that they can speak for others on issues that are purely exersized at-will. The waitresses (though I don't like Hooters and all that) they did DECIDE to go and apply - they WANTED to work there. They could work ANYWHERE else and wait tables but at least this establishment's a bit more fun than that.

    I'm sure that woman holding the sign wouldn't want a Hooter's chick to insist that "Real Women wear thongs" and things like that. . . so why women like her feel compelled to protest what other women are doing is beyond me.

    I have issues - but I'd never run someone into the ground over it.

    That pic was selected from among the teeming currents of modern civilization's swell of digital information because it confirmed a personally held sentiment. It says little about reality on the whole. It doesn't do justice to the truth, just to a certain kind of opinion.

    For example, there are female porn stars who made a career on their attractiveness who, though they still retained their good looks, decided that there was something intrinsically wrong with the porn industry and turned against it.

    That undermines the plausibility of the viewpoint that ugly women are the only ones against capitalizing on sexuality.

    There are other examples.
