Re: “Lap dances for children”

To the Editor:
This letter is in response to Jory Ceeda’s questioning of the Canadian Asian International Students’ Association’s morals. Let me start by saying I’m in no way affiliated with this club or its fashion show, though I believe I have seen the club practising in the University Community Centre.

Ceeda, I don’t believe the fashion show is meant to entertain your uptight self or any kids for that matter. The students performing simply want to have fun while raising as much money as possible for a good cause.

This isn’t a novel concept. My parents have been attending an adult-only cabaret with off-colour jokes, alcohol and what you might consider “provocative” dancing for years. But guess what? The show is extremely popular and donates thousands of dollars to charity every year, just like CAISA. Instead of insulting hard-working students who takes tons of hours from their busy schedules to raise money for a good cause, why don’t you start your own family-friendly show with clowns and tap dancing and see how successful you are?¬ If not, please apologize to the students running the CAISA fashion show and crawl back to where you came from.
