Personally, Hooters and strip clubs never bothered me.

For Hooters... I've been to several (Pittsburgh/Monroeville/Myrtle Beach/NYC), and I don't see the girls as being dressed all that whorish. The only problem I have with Hooters is the guys who claim they don't go to see the chicks, but they go for the "great food". Every time I've eaten at Hooters, their food as been either gross or barely acceptable. So, if you're going to see girls dressed with less clothing than Olive Garden waitresses, at least admit to that being the reason. lol

As for strip clubs... I've been to one. I personally didn't enjoy it, as the girls were UGLY and I'm not into girls anyways. I think strip clubs are more degrading for the men than the women. The women are making a living. The men look like pathetic bastards who can't get any pussy on their own. I don't think I could ever get naked in front of a bunch of strangers, but I don't presume to place my morals on anyone else. The only real problem I have with strip clubs/strippers is when men & women use that for their bachelor/bachelorette parties as rites or traditions.

to be totally fair, some of the food at Hooters I do like and some of the girls I think are not all that hot. But in general, I kind of agree with you. I think admitting your going to a restaurant because the waitresses are hot is fine.

Why are you against bachelor/bachelorette parties?

Bachelor/ette Parties

Along with all sorts of bad wedding 'traditions' including the electric slide, the bouquet toss and introducing the wedding party with a voice reminiscent of a NBA basketball announcer, the assumption that having a stripper perform or taking the groom to a strip club is somehow a required rite of passage is incredibly misconceived. It probably ranks last on my list of things to do on my or any of my friends last night before entering the glorious institution of marriage.

Especially if, in these modern times, you've already spent the 2-4 years together as a couple, the pageant of marriage is hardly a time to go back to before you were already actually committed to one person. If you're comfortable doing that the night before you're married, why ever stop? Heck, at that point you might as well get married in the strip club because its entirely possible you hav'nt let go of the need for instant satisfaction at the drop of a twenty dollar bill. "And do you Bill, take Jane to be your lawfully wedded wife .... - Hold on I have to pay for my next lap dance."

Re: Bachelor/ette Parties

honestly, I don't know that you "stop." Because you don't go to the strip club with just your single friends. Your married ones are there too. Its more ceremonial than anything, I think. Typically its not really the night before these days either. It ends up being a week or two before.

And also, speaking of tradition, I KNOW YOU AIN'T HATIN' ON THE ELECTRIC SLIDE!!!!

I'm not against them at those parties, I'm against them being the rite of passage or "tradition". If you really just love strippers and you think that you need to go to see naked women/men the night before your wedding, that's your business. I don't agree with it when the people involved either A. are simply going just because they "have to" or B. are going because they are afraid of the committment in the impending marriage.

Does that make sense?

I don't know that I feel that any of those things HAVE to hapen. But I do like the concept of tradition with a lot of things. I wonder, do you feel the same way about other marriage traditions? White dress, tossing the bouquet? Cutting the cake? Crazy all night honeymoon sex? What about other traditions that have nothing to do with your wedding... you know, like drinking on the night of your 21st birthday. Or even something as simple as saying "Bless You" when someone sneezes.

See I don't agree with doing any of those things because you HAVE too. Actually wedding dresses were traditionally blue (meaning purity) or red (in Chinese cultures). I wouldn't do something JUST because it's tradition. I say "Bless you" when someone sneezes, but I also pray for people every night. For my birthday, I did go drink, but not because I turned 21, simply because I could drink legally. I've drank alcohol before my 21st birthday ;-).

Red White and Blue

I was under the impression the white dress signified a virgin bride ... I also heard that Queen Victorian brought it back in style.

Traditions are fine thing if you know and support their continuing meaning. And something is wrong if you gratuitously flaunt the hypocrisy or ignorance of sensible traditions. Is white an appropriate color for your dress at your third wedding?

Re: Red White and Blue

A white dress only signified a virgin bride starting with Queen Victoria in the 1840s. As such, it was made popular because white wedding dresses were considered a sign of weath, but this later turned into a sign of purity. Blue is actually the color of purity and as I said, the Chinese have consistently worn red wedding dresses.

In my opinion, I think white is a fine color for any wedding dress, whether it is your first or tenth, simply because white dresses no longer signify purity (some polls suggest that over 50% of women are not virgins on their wedding day, though most brides will wear white).

IMO, just because something is tradition doesn't make it absolute.
