Now I've Seen Everything
I was driving home from work today and passed a new Barista. The sign said, "Grand Opening", and Bikini Baristas." Now, I have heard that there are certain Barista stands that have the girls wearing bikinis, but I thought that was a urban legend. Well, I saw a girl at the window handing a cup of coffee to male customer in a car and she was wearing a biking top.
The first thought that went through my head was one, "Are they freezing in wearing only bikinis," "Second, If my daughter had a job like that, or even applied for one, I would never allow her to leave the house, and third, "Are you that desperate for business that you have the girls all wearing bikinis." I would like to see the men going around wearing those skimpy bathing suits and see how well they do in this cold weather.
I never thought I would see that happen in our own city. I am disgusted that any young women who respects themselves would be employed there. I wonder why the city hasn't investigated this and isn't this just like going to a topless bar, but except the girls are only wearing bakinis. Am I the only one that is filled with rage over this and how do we tell our girls to respect themselves as women, when you see this all around you?
I am ashamed to be a woman right now, and even when I pass a magazine stand with a woman posing half dressed. I feel very embarressed. As a society why are we allowing these businesses to operate. Why hasn't anyone put their foot down and said "not here within the city limits?"
Now, I have seen everything. I guess it doesn't matter how women are being exposed aslong as there is money to be made. I guess we are all pieces of meat, instead of a human being. Are we only breasts, and thighs to all the men out there? How would you like to have your mother, sister, girlfriend, or best friend walking around only wearing a bikini?
This is the one questions you can ask yourself and guys I would love to hear your respond to this. Let's hear the guys and girls version on this or at any other business that promotes this demeaning representation of women.
