Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.
This seems oddly specific.
Hooters has amazing wings and its generally a good atmosphere. My parents took us there as a family all the time. I got a picture with some of the girls for my 12th birthday. Ive never seen anyone act inappropriately with the servers, but my accounts hardly portray every hooters everywhere.
Dont get me wrong. the cahones thing sounds great. but only because i would enjoy having aesthetically pleasing servers regardless of their gender and not because you think that treating men like sexual objects will magically fix whatever issues you have with hooters.
Anonymous asked: Have you ever come across the SJW retorts to white people with Native ancestors? It goes something like 'you're only native because your great[x4] grandfather raped a Native woman!' Every time I see it I really want to say 'you got the rape part right, but it was my great[x4] grandmother who was kidnapped and raped by a Native man.' I know it won't matter, they'll tell me I'm lying and ignore the idea that Native Americans are anything less than noble, innocent, horribly victimized peoples.
That seems to be the trend with any non white person in general. Hell, I just found out a few days ago that my great grandmother was actually kidnapped and forced into marriage by my great grandfather (but apparently, aside from that, he wasn’t abusive or anything, but that’s besides the point).
According to my mom, that was really common in the part of Mexico where she grew up (and it does still happen today; I made a post a while back about how two of my aunts were threatened with such).
In their attempt to demonize those who fit certain criteria, they deny the agency of minorities. Being a victim doesn’t erase the possibility of being a perpetrator.
Your skin color, race, ethnicity, etc have no influence on a person’s capability to do harm.
