    NOW Sues Hooters Over "Future Hooters Girl" Children's T-Shirts

    SAN FRANCISCO — The National Organization for Women filed complaints against local Hooters restaurants Thursday,.......The subject this time was Hooters’ catering to children.
    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.”

    I want one of those T-shirts.
    So follow me into the desert

    I thought California was at the forefront of sexual liberation and anti-prudishness.

    I feel sorry for the little girls whose parents would dress them in those shirts... how embarrassing. I don't think that is funny... pretty tasteless, but not illegal. I can't believe those shirts would actually sell..

    It doesn't have to be illegal to sue over it.
    To sue, you do have to show that you were somehow harmed, iirc. I am not sure that there's harm to be shown. I mean not harm from hooters. Perhaps from the parents who buy these for their little girls, but the parents aren't the ones being sued.

    Upon actually reading the article, [*ahem*] I now notice that the suit is because they're and "adult entertainment" venue and serving children

    The girls at Hooters are wearing a lot more than most girls wear at the beach. I just don't see the problem, or how Hooters should be classified as "adult entertainment, no kids". Some of those kids older sisters wear clothing just as bad or worse to school.


    I'll grant you the "Future" T-shirts are in poor taste, and I sure as @#$# would not put one on my daughter, if I had a daughter. (Instead I have a teenage son who likes to eat at Hooters. )

    My niece's partner just went for her photoshoot for the next Hooters calender this morning in fact. Neat coincidence. They stayed the night here since it cut the morning drivetime down by an hour...I thought I was never going to get into the bathroom this morning while she got ready.

    Why are the t-shirts in poor taste? Is there something wrong with being a waitress at hooters?

    Sexual liberation is relative. In the ancient world, making it hard to get a divorce passed for liberation because it protected women from being abandoned through the tyrannical whims of their husbands. In contemporary times, some interpret capitalized eroticism as a form of self-affirmation, others as a new form of subjection.

    Why are the t-shirts in poor taste? Is there something wrong with being a waitress at hooters?
    The company actively markets itself through women's sex appeal. Some people believe basing one's self-worth and career solely on their attractiveness is wrong, ostensibly because it discourages women from developing authentic personalities or substantial achievements.
