Newsweek recently interviewed Sanjya, the American Idol contestant. (I donâ€™t watch it but I sort of know the plotline.) The interviewer seemed intrigued that his sister worked at Hooters. Sanjya defended her by saying she needed a job, as if it were an unusual reason for working at Hooters.
Soâ€¦all the rest of the girls who work at Hooters are there feeding a deep-seated personal need to serve messy food and beer to middle-aged men who want to date them? Might it not be because they need the job too?
Sometimes itâ€™s amazing how far stupid stereotypes extend. (Correct me if Iâ€™m wrong in assuming that most Hooters girls work there for the money.)
