Women's news & feminist views from the Heartland

Strippers and marriage

Posted on July 24, 2011 | in Equal Marriage, Kentucky | by

I’ve got two unre­lated news items for you: one on strip­pers and one on marriage.

Let’s start with the strip­pers. If I had a nickel for every time I said that…

The city of Louisville’s new reg­u­la­tions on adult enter­tain­ment estab­lish­ments are way harsh. For exam­ple, the ordi­nance pro­hibits the sale of alco­hol and, I shit you not, nudity. If it is the city’s goal to force all strip clubs out of busi­ness by fall, then they will prob­a­bly be suc­cess­ful. Read Jonathan Meador’s fas­ci­nat­ing fea­ture story for the Louisville Eccen­tric Observer (LEO) Weekly.

I presided (yes, I) over the wed­ding of my best friend yes­ter­day. I am awe­some and am very cheap ($10 per parental tear drop), for all you pre-nuptial cou­ples out there ;) And today was the first day that gay cou­ples could get mar­ried in New York. Be sure to lis­ten to NPR’s cov­er­age; it made my eyes leak.

To the hun­dreds that were mar­ried today in New York, and to my won­der­ful best friend and her won­der­ful hus­band, I say, Con­grats, you crazy kids! Happy ever after!
