    I think it's silly that the teacher was suspended, but perhaps ought to have thought about potential problems and taken them somewhere less likely to be objectionable. Unfortunately, when you're a teacher you not only have to worry about doing something wrong, but being perceived to have done something wrong whether you actually did or not. Image matters.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No it isn't. Would you have objected if they went to TGI Fridays?

    Hooters is about girls in tiny shorts and big boobs in tight shirts. Anyone who pretends otherwise isn't telling the truth, or maybe doesn't know what Hooters is about.


    The website video makes no secret of it.

    Nope. But I also don't think Hooters was appropriate for a school trip.

    I agree with MyOwnDrum. Not appropriate, but not suspension-worthy, either.

    Hooters is not a family restaurant, like a Chili's or an Applebee's. Both Chili's AND Applebee's have kids menus on their websites. Because, you know, they encourage bringing kids there. Hooters has no kids menu on its website. Because, you know, they do not encourage bringing kids there. Because they are not a family restaurant.

    Very good. Glad the AZ Hooters has a kids' menu. However, the main Hooter's site does not. And that's because they are not a family restaurant.


    And Hooter's is not a family restaurant.

    Voted No

    Still, it says a lot about the maturity and wisdom this teacher has (little). Porn is everywhere, some idiot even invented a tits-theme restaurant. I couldn't take myself serious if I would still be behaving like a 14 yr old horny kid at my age. You don't have to be a christian or a conservative or both to find things like Hooters childish.

    A lack of a children's menu on their main site does not mean they are not kid friendly. A main site is not always going to list every single they serve(its usually like that for a lot of websites for other types of businesses as well) The main website for popeye's chicken does not list a children's menu but some of the regional websites do, does that mean Popeyes chicken is not kids friendly? You can walk into any Popeyes and find a kids menu just as I am sure you can walk into any Hooter's and find a kids menu.
