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

Hooters Bikini Contest

Just in case you were thinking this bikini contest nonsense "wasn't that bad", let's remember that Hooters is meant to be some sort of family friendly environment that you'd take your children to for a birthday party.

Let's take a look at what went on - we doubt the following images are safe for work:

As you can see, aside from being hardly "family friendly" this isn't even particularly "woman friendly". Sure, if you're young, white with a socially conventional "good figure" this might be a fun event to participate in, but we can't imagine many women paying £15 for a ticket to judge other women and enjoying the experience.

  1. 'We will not print comments that support Hooters'

    Way to stifle any debate you may have encouraged! After all, silencing all dissent is a sign of a healthy society, right?

    Do you not think that opinions, politely put, that disagree with your POV can be addressed using argument and logic? Rather than a blanket censorship approach?

    You make yourself appear biased and unwilling to listen to honest debate. I think my response in return would be 'why then should I listen to your opinion, or sympathise with it'?
