    Nope!
    Even people from awesome, stable middle class families who go to private schools and had no experience of drugs or homelessness can end up in the sex industry

    Very true. I am just looking at it from a mothers point of view with children being allowed to attend.

    That's fair enough

    I'm not a mum just yet, but concede its not a sport I'd take children to!

    I know a number of ex strippers who came from brilliant homes, had no drug addictions and in retrospect they regret the hell out of it.

    So we all have anecdotes!

    This doesn't make the concept of women playing sport in lacy knickers ok?

    my sister has returned to stripping to save up for her European Holiday - she is a sexual extrovert ..loves the girls and guys that work there, loves having 'chats' with clients etc...

    her latest downside she told me about yesterday?? she has been vomited on - twice.

    mmm - so empowering!

    Lucky she only had black lacy underwear on and could wash it off quickly in time to be on stage.



    /I support my sister - I and she doesn't pretend to claim it's an 'awesome dream job'

    Yes we do, I'll pull out mine when required

    Why do you feel it's not ok?
    Just asking.

    It is ridiculous that this is the only "professional" team for women in this sport.
    Perhaps they need to find backers to help women's gridiron go in a new direction.
    Not that I know about business.

    I, being a woman, obviously believe that women deserve freedom and equality.

    I just don't believe these women don't have a choice.
    Or that none of them enjoy it!

    Short answer, only because I'm FAK (feeding at keyboard), but patriarchy. Choices aren't made in a vacuum.

    I think the only kind of person who would truely enjoy being a stripper/dancer etc are the vain women who like disgusting perves looking at them and / or Women who need reasuring that they have something going for them.

    That's offensive to women who work in these professions.

    And to me as one of the people who enjoys watching strippers or dancers.

    That can only apply to a few though.
    You can't assume these women haven't made a mature and rational decision to do this?
    IMO.

    Seems like my opinions are on the outter here lol
