Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.


Jenesis Fonseca - “The Way to a Woman’s Heart” (CUPSI 2014)

"They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. There is no proverb about the way to a woman’s heart. The way into her is more important."

" The modern Genderist movement has emerged via Internet culture as a reaction to feminist theory. Contrary to feminist belief, it posits without any academic reasoning that gender is an innate quality but also a fluid, interchangeable entity. In doing so it argues that biological sex does not determine the presence of social oppression and nor does Genderism acknowledge the existence of sex-based social class. The ultimate result of these faith-based beliefs is a de-gendering of social issues, in which feminist theory is depoliticized and stripped of social power. Genderists argue that abortion is not to be discussed as a female-only issue, due to their belief that personal identity trumps biological reality, and in doing so, Genderism strips women of their freedom to openly discuss issues that affect how women are viewed by society."
