I need feminism because…My husband is at dinner with his boss and his boss’s boss at a restaurant where the waitresses dress like this. The name and logo of this fine establishment are a play off women’s breasts. The company’s website invites you to “come enjoy the views.”
I asked my son what he would do if he were part of the dinner group. He replied, “When I got there I would not go in. It wouldn’t feel right.”
Should have husband have said no? Should they have picked a different restaurant? I’ll ask you again, how big is the strength of your convictions?
