a lot of you guys seem scared of strip clubs and are so quick to label them and anyone associated with them as nasty, filthy people when in reality only some of the girls working there have the problems you speak of
did you ever think that maybe some of these girls are actually trying to earn an honest living?
maybe you don't realize this but strippers actually make decent money and usually only work part time

Agreed. I'm not a fan of strip clubs either but I don't feel like that leaves me in any position to judge the dancers working there and make statements like they're all either high or drunk when they're on stage.
Well I actually thought it was pretty lame and I'd much rather go meet women in a store or something instead.
Yea you're probably right. But do you think it messes up every girl psychologically? I don't think so. A strong women can go dance in a club, make a killing in cash and go home to her man and be a respectable human being.
That's not the point. Just because they're trying to make an honest living doesn't change the fact that the job mucks with you psychologically.
Empathize with them. How would you feel about taking off your clothes for a living and then having a bunch of horny old freaks looking you up and down like a piece of meat?
Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me. I'm sure a level of mental strength is required but when isn't it?
Not to mention the crap they have to hear from them all day.
In fact I'd go so far as to say that if the girls in that profession were given drug tests, about 80% would come up with something in their system.
