If the opening of a strip club warrants a news story, your city may be a bit too PC

    SeattLOL. Still, I'd have moved out there in a heartbeat if I had gotten the job I was after.

    I hear ya, to be fair I was looking to move closer to Tacoma, if that matters at all. I dunno, I only spent 4 days there. But I did absolutely love it.

    Old hags have protested nearly every strip club opening, ever. I've known club owners and managers who tried (some cases successfully, some not) opening new clubs, and it goes with the territory.

    I don't think it's a puritanical thing or a PC thing. It's just a white thing. If they could protest minorities moving into nearby houses, they would.

    It's only newsworthy if they have coupons for the club after the article.

    It's not Seattle's fault. I blame the invaders from California who came in their droves and infected a great town with the disease of liberal cuntitis.

    Back in college I lived 3 blocks from a row of strip clubs and even worked one as a doorman for a few months. At the time it was fun as hell, but no way i want that bullshit in my neighborhood now killing property values where I own a home. Strippers are all addicts with good cashflow. This attracts dealers like flies to horseshit, which in turn attracts other scumbag addicts to the area.

    Best thing Giuliani ever did was create new zoning laws to keep the nonsense out of residential areas.

    And with this part I kinda understand why people might be pissed..

    That boy ain't lyin'.

    When I lived out in San Diego there was a pretty cool dive bar across the street from my apartment in a neighborhood that was only sorta scary. I used to hit the place every so often for cheap beer and tacos. One day it closed down, and it re-opened about a month later as a titty bar... a busted ass titty bar. Hey-zeus Christ! It didn't take long. It was like the neighborhood went off a cliff. Just like Larz said... all of the strippers were total skag freaks and the drug dealers came running like it was K-Mart and they lit up the blue light. The CHUDs came crawling up out of the sewers soon thereafter too.

    Thank Hey-zeus I was on a month to month lease... I vamoosed out of that place as fast as I could with at least 5 of my neighbors hot on my heels.

    It's amazing how fast a sump-of-failure strip club will trash a neighborhood.

    Even "classy" strip clubs don't do any good for property values.

    I don't care how open-minded you are: most of the people who might buy your house from you won't be. And those who are know that the market for your house near a strip club won't be, too. Which means your house's value is now shit.

    Hershey, PA, apparently didn't (doesn't?) have any ordinances regulating strip clubs, so when a bar decided to become a strip club last year, there was nothing the town could do about it. They eventually came to an agreement with the owner and it went back to being a bar, but in the end I think it ended up costing the town a bit.

    Given that Hershey these days is a mostly yuppie lawyer/doctor haven, fighting for those property values made a hell of a lot of sense.

    I live in a small town in VA and a few yrs ago someone tried to open an porn shop across from an elem school. It lasted about two weeks until protesters with cams started video taping customers.

    The locals tried to do that when a porn store opened right off of I-81, near Chambersburg. Unfortunately for them, about 90% of the customers were truckers on the interstate who just didn't give a fuck about their bosses finding out they were buying porn.
