Just as someone with contradictory anectdotal evidence, I know a lot of strippers who took the job because they wanted it or thought the money for hours worked was great or other things besides "didn't have anything else to do".

Though all of my friends who are strippers do report that there's a pretty high percentage of substance-addicted, not that bright, and/or just plain crazy flaky strippers. I would suspect that's a function of it being a job that's easier to hold for some people who aren't so hot at doing the normal 9-5 thing. And there's lots of reasons for being not so hot at doing the normal 9-5 thing. I suck at it, because it eats my soul. But being on drugs, stupid, and flaky could certainly yield the same result of being bad at the 9-5. (My hypothesis is pure conjecture based on a limited and non-random sampling of aquaintences. I would need more data to be more certain of my tendency to believe the reason for this high percentage of flaky druggies.)

that's my point. Even assuming that all strippers were DD breasted, blonde bimbos with single digit IQs(and they aren't) don't those people deserve to make a living too? I find the statement "strip clubs are exploitive" to be a bit sexist and rather offensive actually. It implies that women don't have the right to present themselve as sex objects even if they choose to.

I agree with you on both of those. If hypothetically all strippers were strippers because they couldn't do anything else, it's not like not having the option of stripping would make their lot better; they just couldn't do ANYTHING then.

And yeah, someone can choose to be a tech support object or a software engineering object or a truck-driving object or a naked dancing object. Work for most people isn't about being cherished and appreciated as a fully-dimensioned and fully-known individual. If you're appreciated just for your technical expertise or just for your ability to smile and not grit your teeth at assholes who decide they hate a company's product or just your sweet sweet ass, what's the difference in a larger sense? If someone is horrified by being appreciated only for their ass, then yeah, it would suck for them to do it. If someone is horrified by being appreciated only for whatever other job function, it sucks if they do that, too.

exactly, and who's to say there is anything wrong with wanting to be appricated and cherished for your sweet sweet ass. I know I do.
