The UK does not want 'Hooters'. It is a retrograde step for a country dedicated to gender equality

Friday, 10 September 2010

Let's dress misogyny up as empowerment and try and convince everyone we're just talking about owls!

From the website:

"Claims that Hooters exploits attractive women are as ridiculous as saying the NFL exploits men who are big and fast. Hooters Girls have the same right to use their natural female sex appeal to earn a living as do super models Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. To Hooters, the women’s rights movement is important because it guarantees women have the right to choose their own careers, be it a Supreme Court Justice or Hooters Girl.

The chain acknowledges that many consider "Hooters" a slang term for a portion of the female anatomy. Hooters does have an owl inside its logo and uses an owl theme sufficiently to allow debate to occur over the meaning's intent. The chain enjoys and benefits from this debate. In the end, we hope Hooters means a great place to eat."

Oh please.......

Ok, some people may have fallen for this argument (not naming any names but certain Lib Dem councillors spring to mind) but the intelligent people in this country think this kind of rhetoric is a load of old turkey twizzlers.


  1. But it's NOT a great place to eat. It gives you the trots. See the photo post below.

    Also - I searched high and low on the web, and couldn't find anyone who had a good word to say about the food. Even people who enjoy looking at the girls there, admitted the food was rather average.

  2. But Hooters is not a place wherein males go to eat good quality food - it is a place males visit in order to view women employees as dehumanised sexual service stations and also to bond with fellow misogynists.

    Now imagine if Hooters employed male staff wherein it was compulsory for these males to wear nothing but tiny, tiny skimpy knickers which conveniently leave nothing to the imagination. Why there would be a mass outcry from men of 'sexism, sexism' and yet more 'sexism.' (Note sexism is commonly mis used and worse commonly applied by men against women).

    But because men are the default human beings this means male sexual harassment of women does not exist because - wait for it - women are not human and hence no human is harmed or humiliated when men engage in sexually harassing/treating women as disposable sexual service stations. So why then do men engage in treating/viewing women as non-human - because it is an excellent method of male domination and male control over women. But then this is not logical because only men are the default human.

    But then the male supremacist/patriarchal system has never ever been rational or logical.
