Guys Sue Hooters For Right To Be Objectified

A group of men have filed a class-action suit against chain restaurant Hooters for being “denied a waiter’s position because of… gender.”

Thirty years ago, a similar case was brought against Southwest Airlines, which resulted in the company being forced to hire male flight attendants. While the Southwest Airlines case sounds sensible, you have to wonder why a group of men would want to work at Hooters, a chain that objectifies its employees, controls virtually every aspect of their appearance, and generally treats them like crap. Oh wait, they don’t really want to work at Hooters, they are just looking for some big corporate payoff. As TMZ charmingly reports: “The guys are asking the court for emotional damages—but we thought you had to have those before getting a job at Hooters!” [TMZ]
