If Hooters were to become a door-to-door service would they have to change
their name to Knockers?

Haha, fantastic. ;)

No offense to anyone working at hooters...

But why not just work at a strip club? The pay's better.

But you don't have to take off your clothing at Hooters. And besides, it's a family restaurant. There's nothing outrightly offensive about Hooters, unless you count waitresses who were small clothing as/more offensive than srippers.

I know a guy who brings his kid to Hooters when he gets good grades. He brings his kid's friends too.

I think it's kind of offensive to the women working there. "Hey son! You get some A's and I'll take you to see some D's!".

Yeah.. I think it's offensive that they'd be allowed in the door. Yeah, let's teach little boys how to objectify women. Cool plan, they don't get enough of that in the media...

Yeah... I don't know how tv can turn someone gay, when you're born with your sexuality predetermined.

to my knowledge, they have yet to definatively prove the exact cause of sexual orientation (or 'preference' as many evangelicals like to call it)

i tend to regard sexual orientation as more of a sliding scale in terms of attraction - you may be attracted to a male or a female, however, it is possible to be attracted to both equally or in diffferent proportions. however, few people ever have sexual interaction with every person they find attractive.

within the general population there is a significant tendancy towards hetrosexuality. however, with changes in society such as a greater level of acceptability, we may find in future that people become generally more fluid in their sexuality.

this of course could be catalysed by environmental factors (e.g. oestrogen mimics arising from plastics and chemicals) which have the potential to alter body chemistry and consequent behaviour.

the 'born gay' theory is often used as a defence against attacks by (normally religious) individuals who regard any sexuality other than thier own as a 'choice' and unnacceptable. the fact is that sexuality may be fixed at birth or during the formative years for some individuals and may remain fluid for others for much of thier lives.
