    Apparently a person can't ask a simple question without listening to a mess of defensive bullshit. I made it very clear that I was asking about the visual image devoid of the back story. I have a hobby of studying what I call the "blue mirror". The quality of the blue mirror is that it lets people see things as they would prefer, for example muting the effects of sun damage or age. My aunt has only tinted mirrors in her house, for this very reason.

    I have never been to a Hooters. Are all the waitresses required to wear the short shorts? Are there any plus-size waitresses?

    There's been repeated lawsuits against Hooters, for demanding that waitresses either lose a mere 5 lbs or be fired. One was local to me and made quite the news bracket, because well... she was hot and certainly didn't look like she should lose 5 lbs.

    I think Hooters attempts to get away with the discrimination, by stating that they're hired as models with just minor waitressing duties. That argument has been won and lost with bars in the past.

    Apparently, a person can't answer a simple question without being subjected to offensive BS. The first photo that I saw of her was the one that accompanied the article, which was the one over her column. The Hooter's photo said young, hot girl, somewhat awkwardly posed with poor lighting and makeup, who appears to be getting insufficient amounts of sleep, if the creases under her eyes are any indication. I tend to presume that a woman is straight because straight women account for 95% of women. Nothing in the photo led me to think otherwise.

    What I didn't think, when I saw the pic, was "white trash." I've known a number of girls who worked in places like Hooters, as well as dancers and other professions, and they ran the gamut from highly intelligent/well-educated to complete and utter bimbos. But then, I don't have your colonial pedigree, so I'm less inclined to judge others that way. Not all of us were born with a silver spoon in our mouths, or other orifices, so we tend to take people as they come and try to avoid perjorative labels until they have earned them.

    My thought was "nice tits ... a bit skinny though."

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Sounds like the democrats are escalating their war on women.

    This is Ciara Matthews now:



    She's not trashy.

    However, quite a few liberals seem to have a problem with an attractive, intelligent woman who disagrees with them. Having an open lesbian go after Anne Romney may not have been the most tactically swift move, and having the party of Helen Thomas, Hillary Clinton and a few other feminist gargoyles go after Ciara Matthews strikes me as a losing proposition.
