Articles: S.O.S. Save Our Strippers!
Posted by Meranda_Jade on Monday, September 10, 2007 - 06:36 PM PST

Politics
(On a personal note, I used to be a dancer. There was nothing filthy or degrading about it. Laws like these are WRONG... they take much needed work away from people who might otherwise have a very tough time trying to find a *respectable* job that pays as well. The sex industry does not harm anyone. Adult businesses cater to ADULTS, and as adults, we ought to have the freedom to decide what kind of entertainment we wish to take in. Nobody should be taking your hand as if you were a little child and keep you away from things that THEY see as *immoral*. You have the right to decide for youself what you see as immoral and what you see as harmless fun.
Dancers are not prostitutes. They are not drug addicts. They are the single mother trying to provide for her children. They are the college student, struggling to put herself..or himself...through school. Many are bright, happy people who have talent and skill and love what they do. If a law like this goes through, we lose yet another avenue for freedom of expression.

Please, do not let this happen. Go and sign the petition. Even if you do not enjoy watching beautiful, talented people perform their magic on stage... sign it. If they get away with this, who knows what they will take away from us next? Use your voice... and a pen. You sat by silently and gave up your right to smoke in your favorite bar. When will your silence end?

~MJ )


***original post***
Because whatever we think about sexually oriented businesses, we don't want the government telling us how to live our lives.

Over the last few years we've witnessed the rise and growing power of groups that want to restrict personal freedoms, reverse progress in women's rights and reproductive rights, impose a moral standard that says homosexuality is wrong and gay people should be "converted" to heterosexuality, and censor the information available to adults.

One of those groups is based right here in Ohio, and it's called (blandly enough) Citizens for Community Values. Headed by Phil Burress -- an arch-right conservative in Cincinnati -- CCV recently pushed through a so-called "Stripper Bill" (it should be called the "Big Brother Burress Bill") that would do the following:

1) Require all Sexually oriented businesses to close between midnight and 6:00 am.
2) If a Sexually oriented business has a liquor permit it can remain open until the hour specified but cannot offer sexually oriented entertainment.
3) Require all employees to stay 6 feet away from all patrons before, during or after performance, and on a stage at least two feet above the floor.
4) Prohibit touching any patron at any time.
5) Prohibit touching another person who is nude or semi-nude at any time.
6) Redefines Adult Bookstore, Adult Cabaret, employee, patron etc.

Who would this affect? Everyone in the adult entertainment industry here in Ohio. The definitions of sexually oriented business, employee, nudity and patron in the proposed statue are so broad that bookstores, movie theaters, strip clubs, anyone in the industry will be run out of business if this passes.

Burress claims to be motivated by a desire to "protect" women -- but dancers in Ohio (who have formed their own group, Dancers for Democracy) are saying that they don't want protection from someone like Phil Burress. They just want to do their jobs, earn their paychecks, and support their families.

Phil Burress and CCV need to be stopped.

Right now petitions are circulating to get the issue on the ballot, so that THE VOTERS OF OHIO -- not Phil Burress and arch-right legislators who aren't in touch with the people of Ohio -- can decide for ourselves.

And you can help.

I would love to stand with you, and do stand with you on this, but I am not an Ohio citizen. All I can say is keep fighting whitey, and cross my fingers to hope you win. Your best bet might be in circles of eighteen to twenty-one year old boys, frat houses, and the blog-o-sphere. We here in Houston, Texas had a simular law like that pass years ago, which made its way to a punch line on SNL.
Well, best of luck to you.

The goddamned law passed. Now, you have to be six feet away from the stripper. If you're going to tip a female stripper, you have to put the money into her hand, not a garter belt or g-string. Although I fail to see how that can be accomplished from six feet away. You can still get your lap dance, though... as long as it's a private club with a membership card. It's the public places that will go out of business, and a LOT of girls and boys will be out of work.

Even worse, male strippers cannot be tipped at all. If you are caught handing money to a male stripper, both parties get fined. I was told all of this by a very enchanting dancer who was wearing white boxer briefs and a pair of pink Cupid wings at the time. I'd really hate to see that sort of thing go away because people have to be closed-minded about what should and should not be seen and appreciated and rewarded.

As a former Ohio resident, I say that these regulations do not go far enough. Sexuality between a man and woman is a beautiful thing ,not a public or perverse pleasure. These clubs are degrading to both the participants and the clientele and panders to the perverse side of sexuality. Be thankful that I'm not in charge. The clubs and sex shops would be closed permanently on my watch.
