A Step Forward Into The 20th Century

You would think that as a society we evolve physically, spiritually, intellectually. However it looks like those kings of platitude are lock stepping right into the Victorian Age.

A new law passed by the Missouri State Legislature seeks to ban the existence of adult bookstores, strip clubs within 1,000 ft of of church, school, park. It also bans nudity in strip clubs, cannot be within six feet of dancer, no alcohol sold, and strip clubs must close from midnight to six am.

Certainly typical of what you find as either state or local ordinances across the country, it varies of course but seems to be the norm.

But that’s beside the point, the legislation is forwarded to the Governor will be signed into law, then challenged in court, then amended to allow local municipalities to establish their own laws regulating strip clubs. Which then makes the bill nothing more than a political bumper sticker the ignorant use to get votes.

Which in the end will only marginalize those who would participate in adult entertainment responsibly. Cause the dancer to go underground, or allow them to exploited further, at the same time the customer faces increased demonization and guilt.

And the wheel keeps on turnin…
