If you drive East on Highway 51 you may notice a new attraction. The Doll House is a new adult entertainment venue that will be opening today. The sign proudly proclaims that they will have 15-20 girls.
I have to be completely honest. Initially I fantasized about burning the place down. Of course, I would never do this in reality. 1) They could collect the insurance money and rebuild anyway and 2) I am pretty sure arson is a felony. Okay, the real reason: I try not to be a crazy person. While my reaction may seem somewhat extreme, let me explain.
1. As a Wife
How could I be married and approve of this kind of business? The Doll House encourages men, committed or not, to come into their establishment and look at other women, naked women. I realize committed men do not have to participate, but the reality is, some will. Not only does this put a naked woman in front of husbands, fiancés or boyfriends in a totally sexual way, which in my opinion might as well be cheating, but the man’s attendance tells his significant other that she is not good enough, pleasing enough, beautiful enough, wild enough, sexy enough, etc. She is also now compared again unrealistic physical and sexual standards. And to put it frankly, the only boobs I want my husband looking at are mine.
2. As a Mother
I hate to pull the classic “what if it was your baby?”, but WHAT IF THE GIRL ON THE STAGE TAKING HER CLOTHES OFF WAS YOUR DAUGHTER?! Would you really want a bunch of horny guys ogling your daughter or even sister? No! Just the thought of it makes me what to pummel every guy that walks through those doors. Even more so I want to beat the crap out of every Daddy that failed to tell his daughter how much she is worth and that she is beautiful and far more valuable than that! And don’t even get me started if I had a son, and I caught him going there.
3. As a Woman
Okay feminist, where are you now? You want Freedom? Respect? Empowerment? Yet this kind of business still exists in our society. What is politically correct or remotely okay with women putting themselves on display to be exploited for men’s sexual gratification? Or is that what the feminist movement had in mind when they said they wanted to be liberated? Maybe, if we women weren’t so busy telling men not to open the door for us, we could put a stop to this blatant exploitation and abuse.
Please, please do not support this business. Ernie Bales, the owner was quoted in an article by the O’Colly saying that The Doll House would be “classier.” There is nothing classy about capitalizing on the degradation of women.
