All too often, men and women alike view dancers as just inanimate sex objects with no care but to flaunt their booty in public for a few dollars (“Film Strip,” 1/15). The truth is that if you talk to them in a courteous and civilized manner, you will find that they have lives and feelings just like anyone. Notice I refer to the them as “dancers” because the term “stripper” is really old, outdated, disrespectful, and demeaning to these ladies, who are only trying to make an honest living just like any other working professional. I find that dancers are truly the warmest and most friendly ladies to be around, because they know men. They know how to talk to a man in a soothing and reassuring manner. That is why so many men lust after them.
