    But that's the point, it's their right to get their britches in a bunch over what their kids are exposed to. You and I may think it's stupid, but neither of us has the right to tell them how to raise their kids.

    I don't see what the big deal is. They see far more racy things on TV and movies everyday.

    It's also not like a school teacher couldn't find a restaurant that does not simply objectify women, to take his underage charges to for a meal.

    Here is what the Hooters employee manual says about the restaurant:

    An older version of the Hooters Employee Handbook (prior to October 2006), published in the The Smoking Gun reads:[15] which notes that:

    Customers can go to many places for wings and beer, but it is our Hooters Girls who make our concept unique. Hooters offers its customers the look of the "All American Cheerleader, Surfer, Girl Next Door."

    Female employees are required to sign that they "acknowledge and affirm" the following:

    1. My job duties require I wear the designated Hooters Girl uniform.
    2. My job duties require that I interact with and entertain the customers.
    3. The Hooters concept is based on female sex appeal and the work environment is one in which joking and entertaining conversations are commonplace.
    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hooters]Hooters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    No, teachers should not be taking underage kids to a restaurant where sex appeal of the waitresses IS the concept of the business, if there are more appropriate places available, and in this case there always are more appropriate places. I'm not saying lock the teacher up, teacher committed no crime, but teacher exercised poor judgment.

    Some people like to apply their morality and perceptions on everyone else when they feel they've been wronged in one twisted way or another.

    Those women objectify themselves, and then ugly b*tches complain about it.

    What's wrong with that is a parent objected. Just because the same thing is on TV has nothing to do with it. Does this parent control TV viewing as well? We don't know but it is possible. Again it is a parents right and to my mind duty to determine what is and is not appropriate for their children.

    Yea, God forbid we admit that "underage" people have sexual feelings. It's best to pretend they don't exist and repress natural, healthy feelings.

    Newsflash! Girls have boobs and high school boys like them. GET OVER IT!
