    There's no nudity at hooters. Just girls in skimpy clothing (you'd see the same thing if you let your kids go to the beach or a public pool).

    I have no issues, but maybe she should've asked her students to get permission from her parents first.

    I can't tell you how many field trips I went on in High School Band/Debate/Swim team. I can tell you...there is no way that my parents could have decided every place I ate on those trips....and thank GOD!...that I grew up with parents that didn't feel the need to micro manage every single step I took.

    What next? Are you going to complain that they went to TGI Fridays....because you don't approve of the term TGIF...using "God's" name in the acronym?
    Why do you assume I am a parent? Guess what? Adults are usually responsible for their children until age 18 and sometimes til 21. If your kid gets in trouble? Guess who will have to account for that? The parents and if you think that parents should have no voice in what their children are exposed to? You best think again as it is their rights.

    This teacher made a bad choice and your can try to defend this bad call till the cows come home but it will not work.

    Wrong. It was a trick question. There ISN'T any sports equipment in the picture.

    And if you think only people on the right feel as if they should have parental control? You are fooling yourself.
    My point was about parents who over shelter their kids from the world only to find it backfires. I've seen it many times.

    My wife attended a Catholic grade school and junior high. Many of the Catholic girls got pregnant once they attended a public school. Over protection and sheltering can and will backfire.

    We had a guy in college that graduated from a military academy. He never went to class and flunked out. Problem was he was suddenly in sensory overload and no one was telling him what to do every minute.

    BTW did you know incest is more common in the bible belt in families that are strict fundamentalists.

    Are you trying to compair the shorts that students wear for school stuff to what the Hooters ADULT Women wear? You have no point.

    Actually the feed trough restaurants (Buffet) are even more well known for that.

    And God forbid (gasp) don't allow your children to go to the beach or a public swimming pool. They might actually see a woman wearing a.......(gulp) .....(whisper.....bikini)!
    Theme parks are even more interesting. It's amazing how sleazy dressed girls will get at a theme park. But but isn't this a place where lots of young people go?

    When I was a teenager I worked in a grocery story that had open freezers. Consequently it was quite cool in the store. When the braless girls came in it made something stand at attention.

    So high school aged kids should be able to run willy nilly and exposed to anything? Guess who they come after when a child( YES CHILD!!!) gets into trouble? The parents! Hell these days you can spend jail time if your High School Kid skips School! And yet you feel as if parents should not care what they are exposed to and not be able to monitor what they do and where they go?

    I go to the one in Hollywood quite often and I would say that the place is always at least 70% families. Granted...it is in the middle of a tourist area and most are probably families on vacation, sight-seeing...but I've been to the Hooters in Santa Monica as well and it was full of families too.


    Yes...Hooters IS a family restaurant. Maybe not for all families...but to try to paint it as anything other than it is is dishonest.
    But the parents made a Choice to take the kids there! It is not the same as some teacher taking them without approval.
