The Modesto City Council will allow a permit for a 65-foot freeway sign that could potentially cause Hooters to reconsider putting in a restaurant next to Chuck E. Cheese (Oct. 7, Page A-1).
Nothing has changed since 1993, when it was opposed by the Stanislaus County Commission on Women and other groups. The Hooters name, logo, and uniforms are still degrading to women! We do not need a Hooters here. There is enough degradation of women already. It is ludicrous that it is even being considered.
To suggest that this caters to sports fans is ridiculous. Most women are sports fans as well. How is this catering to me? Perhaps the City Council would consider putting in a Chippendales. I am sure this would be most lucrative for the city as well. I am sure women sports fans would like to be catered to and be served by Chippendale men while we watch sports. It might even be a way to bring couples closer together.
What would be the difference? Equal rights for everyone, City Council! That includes women.
