    There's no problem with that. If that's how you feel/believe, that is how you feel/believe. Many other people likely feel exactly the same way.

    The only place I ever lived, prior to about 1990, where that was so was Charlotte NC, and then mostly just on the south side of Independence Boulevard... and the strip clubs STILL got shut down from time to time by the sheriff.

    In most other places, prior to that, it was as I said.

    I don't know where you lived, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say that up until 1980-something most everyday folks didn't take a favorable view of strippers, strip clubs, or patrons of same.

    One way to get through a lot of it is to ask a hypothetical question like: "Would you be concerned that your son/daughter's teacher has a wife whose occupation is that of a stripper?"

    I have no particular issue with someone being opposed to strip clubs on moral grounds, but suggesting that not sharing that opinion indicates a lack of moral standards is pretty small-minded.

Context is sort of important here, and its not "once a stripper always a stripper."

    Of course I would. Why should I be romantically involved and married to someone that I have moral issues with? It's my emotions and my choice too. I have every right to have standards and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, I think it's a good thing and should be a necessary thing. Like I said though, if they were an ex-stripper and repented from that way of life I wouldn't have problems. I could have compassion for a needy woman that has turned to the sex industry to make a living, but I wouldn't marry her unless there were changes.

    I don't want to enter into a marriage with someone whom I have very strong moral problems with. I do not want someone raising my children that does not share similar morals with me and would raise our kids to believe that stripping, prostitution, pornography, and other things that I believe are evil, wrong, and unacceptable. I don't want those kind of values instilled in my children, and I could not marry someone that actively engages in such things. Also, I want a wife who will be faithful to me sexually and I would be the same to her. It is cheating, in my view, for her to get naked and sexually objectify herself before others for money and I would not do the same thing with my body either.

    As opposed to sucking cock for twenties? Maybe yeah...


    And don't try to tell me there aren't a pretty large number of strippers who prostitute on the side, I'm an ex-cop.

    Thirty years ago, in most places outside of Vegas and suchlike, strip clubs were hidden on back roads, had no signs and did not advertise. The vast majority of people had very low opinions of both patrons and performers from strip clubs, if they ever learned of it.

    Tell me what in that was an "ass"umption, as opposed to an OBSERVATION about how things have changed while I WATCHED them change.

    That's just not true.

    Maybe it was seen that way in some bumbkin bible-thumping town out in the boonies, but such a view was not universal.

    Then you know exactly what I'm referring to, as I was in NC as well in the Raleigh area and later Wilmington. Perspective is not reality when judging another person...

    Or maybe, what we no longer accept is the Moral Fascists and their need to feel superior to everyone else.
