When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”
i’m creating a kickstarter for cojones right now
I once went out to dinner with a male friend of mine and we were having a discussion about Hooters. I said I was disgusted by it, and he couldn’t comprehend why.
"Do you like the wings?" I remember asking dryly, waiting for the snarky response.
"Yeah — why, do you not like them?"
I was dumbfounded. “How would you feel if your mother or sister worked there?”
Only then did he get it. It is terrifying how men are taught to objectify women from the start — and even more terrifying when they can’t comprehend it being wrong unless they have some kind of previously established connection to the woman.
