    Actually, every strip club in my hometown that I’ve heard cover charge adverts for is free cover for ladies. Maybe your city has a couplenestablishmentsnwith different rules?

    @Barbiestylez:  I’ve never expected free cover or drinks Just because I happen to be a woman. I will say I’m from the south and Im pretty use to guys holding doors open, Darling Husband always walks on the street side when we go places, and etc. I don’t expect these things but I do appreciate the courtesy and I always try to return it. the problem comes in when anybody acts entitled to certain behaviors. It’s annoying.

    Cover charge needn’t be charged for anyone.

    Bars/clubs often have “ladies free” because having a higher proportion of women is a big attractant for a venue. It makes them more popular and more profitable. It’s the same reason why as a woman, you’re generally always invited to go clubbing whenever people want to go, because if only your male friends go, they’re never going to get past the bouncer.

    This doesn’t really make up at all for all the ways women are disadvantaged in society. At all.

    I guess given how many other areas we are taken advantage of, it doesn’t bother me that we would get one perk. But no, in the end, being entitled doesn’t help the cause. Even though men are entitled to a million other “perks” based on just being male. It’s like women who get irrate if a man doesn’t hold the door open for them-I get it, but are you holding the door open for other women? Other men? If not, stop your bitching. It shouldn’t be a gender-based behavior and it doesn’t help our status.

    Considering that women generally earn less than men — again the key word here is GENERALLY speaking — no, I don’t have any problem with accepting the occasional freebie or perk, such as no cover charge on ladies’ night or whatever. 

    And yes, I suppose that would be unfair for the few random guys out there who don’t earn as much as the average woman.

    However, I would put this very low on my list of things to worry about.

    I wish I was taken more seriously with things like car repair and technology (“Yeah, I’m a woman who knows exactly what’s wrong with my car!!!” or “Yes, a woman can know exactly which computer she wants to buy!!!”) Ughhhh.

    The worst is the world of classical music and orchestras. It’s definitely man’s world, and I hate that. Even when studying music in university for 4 years, I only had one female professor. Most orchestra conductors are male, and most of their members are male. Just the way it is, I guess…

    I don’t think I feel entitled to anything or that the world owes me something because I’m a female.

    @Barbiestylez:  “I guess I expected free cover & drinks when I was 18 in a mini dress as a single girl, but not these women who are 21-50″

     

    Well, now, wait a minute.  Did you expect it, aka entitled, because you were a young female?

    That’s hardly fair.

    Oh!

    Originally I said I wouldn’t pay a cover charge (like, at a normal bar), but why should a chick not have to pay a cover charge at a strip club? They take up room, and they take up chairs!

    I can’t imagine pitching a fit over that!

    @Barbiestylez:  Because only young, attractive women have anything to offer and should expect goodies, right?  Because the only value women have is derived from their ability to sexually entice men?  How dare a woman who is ‘old’ and ‘dried-up’ have any expectations, eh?  Awesome attitude there.

    I kind of think this thread is funny.  Well the reponses anyway.  You’re not owed anything because you don’t “generally” make as much as men. period.  You can’t have it both ways.  Don’t we pay the same for dinner at a restaurant?  You’re not entitled to anything, you earn it, you want to get into the club .. pay the freakin cover.
