Letter to the Editor: Stripping just a job


In regards to Brian Kimmes’ article about the stripper (Bikers Beware: Strippers Lurk in the Dark of Night, Nov. 8), the ethical thing to do is to get a drunk person off the street.

And as a stripper myself, you should realize that we are not panting to go home with you. Her mentioning her heels in the trunk may have been a concern for her investment in her costumes and shoes and not an invitation for sex.

And stripper is not her first, middle or last name nor does it define her character. Exotic dancing is a well-paid profession that supports me and my son in addition to paying my way through college. All we do is dance. The majority of us are not whores or drunks.
