Lap dances for children

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

To the Editor:
My attention to my work was quickly blown a while ago by the dancing of a group of students practising in the University Community Centre. I saw girls lap dancing on guys seated in chairs, girls’ legs spreading and guys going down on girls’ crotches shaking their heads back and forth. Disgusting! I thought this was all phenomenally inappropriate and extremely trashy. There’s a place for this kind of action and it’s called a strip club!

I inquired and was told it was a Canadian Asian International Students’ Association fashion show rehearsal and it was raising money for the children’s hospital. I was perplexed by the word “children.” I thought to myself, they’re putting this show on to raise money for children by entertaining with activities found in strip clubs.

Why would a show consistently fundraising for the children’s hospital fail to put on a show children and families can attend? It should decide as a group what its goals are, and if it has anything to do with what it’s displayed the past few years, it should move the show to Solid Gold.
