Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
IF I remember correctly, you either stated or indicated that I was one of these people, "who think the "family unit" is an arbitrary social construct that perpetuates patriarchal authoritarianism". In fact, I think that you stated it directly....There ARE some people who think the "family unit" is an arbitrary social construct that perpetuates patriarchal authoritarianism. So, should coaches stop taking their kids to family restaurants in order to remain sensitive to uber-feminist, fringe leftists? If not, then why should we remain sensitive to uber-religious, fringe rightists?
Also, I am against coaches taking students to Hooters which should not be classified as a "family restaurant" and I am Conservative... there goes your stereotype I guess.
Can't fit everything into a nice little box...
The fact that waitresses dress "sexy" is TOTALLY RELEVANT and Hooters IS NOT a mainstream restaurant and I'm not certain that it should be OK to take kids there either... the fact that they dress sexy is the entire point, one that you completely fail to acknowldge, instead opting to lrepeat that it is legal and anybody that disagrees should give up since they have no point when it is exactly the opposite...Hooters IS a mainstream restaurant. It's perfectly legal for ANYONE to patronize. The fact that the waitresses dress "sexy" is totally irrelevant since female sexuality is a societal norm. If you don't like the mainstream then you should endeavor to change it, but pretending like you can shield your child from it is just unrealistic.
You keep saying family restaurant now right after yousaid that you didn't buy into those who think the "family unit" is an arbitrary social construct that perpetuates patriarchal authoritarianism and that a family restaurant is offensive... Do you have dual personalities?If teachers can bring their kids to a family restaurant without worrying about offending some fringe leftist (except in California...), then teachers should be able to bring their kids to contemporary, mainstream restaurants without worrying about offending some fringe rightist who lives in the 1800's.
Keep saying I am a fringe leftist all you like, you might even actually believe it too! Also, it is Conservatives that would dislike women dressing trashy and liberals that are for it, Conservatives that are for keeping children within the bounds of morality and Liberals that are for stretching morals to the breaking point, so I think that you have the political spectrum backwards...
my point is that it is a typical restaurant because it serves food and is open to the public
you seem to think that it is somehow unique and underserving of being identified as a restaurant
i want you to explain why your idea is so wrong

yes... of which Hooters is not. My coaches took us out all the time and from what I recall, parents were always informed of that fact, but not of the particular restaurant, it was no big deal. Today, teachers have to give out consent froms for parents regarding every part of a trip, in most cases...

I'm just reading what you are writing, incorrect grammar and all (just playing about Grammar Nazi, but it should be "you") that is all... If you mean something else, then by all means, clarify your position.
