That's hysterical! Do male strippers typically come dressed as policemen?

And I have to wonder how much alcohol was involved....

No comment :angel:

But you have only part of the story :lol:

Two policemen went there because the neighbors complained about the noise to ask them to tune it down a little. Now THIS is classic, the stripper first scaring the bride before he turns out to be a stripper. So the guests had no doubt and didn't bother wondering what the extra one was for :p

One of them, shirtless, managed to get away and use the radio to ask for reinforcement to help save his friend :ninja:

Hail the brave policemen of Israel :wideeyed:

On a serious note, this is a bit disturbing. A group of men stripping some woman who did only come to deliver a pizza would have been punished harsher, and this is a policeman we're talking about.
Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings.

:devil: Ro

That's an excellent point, and one I hadn't considered.

I don't know your justice system, but I can imagine hte charges that would be filed here. The spin would be, of course, "The men didn't listen to the poor woman's protests"  and "No always means no", even if it was a relatively innocent mistake.

I actually was just thinking these women got off quite lightly.  Embarassment and a fine is not much punishment or deterrent.

Their actions indeed sound like sexual assault, and if men had been acting in that way, I suspect it would have been treated much more harshly.

I'm gonna make it political, Christopher, I promise.   :p

Seriously, despite my very serious problems with Israel's treatment of the Palestinians and their former occupation of Lebanon, this is one of the reasons I'm glad the country exists.  It's the only nation in the Middle East where women are liberated enough to act like idiots in this fashion.  It's certainly an improvement over honor killings and the chador.

Yes indeed. :)

Heck - it might be a form of assault, but you can bet that policeman suffered no serious mental scars from the incident. He's got a story he can tell for years to come.

Precisely Zack.

I can't think of another middle east country where it's possible to order a male stripper.

Hey, now it's a common misconception in the West that the custom of veiling women is purely a form of oppression.  That's like saying that our country's laws requiring women to cover their breasts is a form of oppression.  Most American women would choose to cover their breasts whether the laws required it or not (and I do believe that toplessness is currently legal in a couple of states, including New York and Maine).  And by the same token, many Muslim women embrace hijab as a form of cultural expression, a protection from sexual harrassment, or a way to ensure that they're judged by their personality and merit instead of their appearance.  Here are a couple of sites on the custom and its history:

http://www.womeninwo...m/essay-01.html

http://www.urbanmoza...fea_chador.html

Indeed, hijab has often been empowering for women engaged in protest or resistance movements.  It provides anonymity and concealment, allowing women to smuggle pamphlets, video cameras or weapons.  Veiled women have played vital roles in fights for liberty ranging from Algeria to Afghanistan.  So I'd say those veiled women were quite liberated.

On a more basic level, it provides freedom of movement.  For centuries there has been an attitude throughout the West, as much in Europe as in the Mideast, that an unescorted woman was either a target or a slut.  But hijab allowed women to move freely and unharassed, and they took advantage of this to exert political power.  In the early 20th century, veiled women in the Ottoman Empire would often stage protest rallies and sit-ins in order to demand things from the government, like compensation for war widows.  These veiled women were also very liberated.

There's nothing wrong with wearing a veil, a chador, even a burqa so long as it's a woman's own choice.  (If you ask me, there's nothing wrong with her going buck naked if she chooses, but that's another discussion.)  What's wrong is when a state requires women to wear them or else.  But let's not forget that some secular governments such as Turkey and pre-revolution Iran have forbidden women to wear them or else, and that's just as wrong.

Christopher, I'm half Arab American, so I'm well aware of the history and cultural context of the hijab, chador, veil, and other forms of covering up women in the Middle East.

And I'm about the farthest thing from a "ram Western culture down their throats" imperialist as you can get on this board.  But I just don't buy the cultural relativist "the hijab can be liberating" argument one hears so often.  The nations of the Middle East by and large are absolutely atrocious when it comes to womens' rights, freedoms, health, and safety, and one can't simply divorce the fact of womens' oppression from the attitude that a woman's body is shameful and a provocation to men if not covered up in public.  Women in those countries can spin those dress codes as "liberating" all they want, but I'm just not buying it.   The Muslim world needs to find its own path towards womens' liberation, to be sure, but until it does, don't expect me to make excuses for the virtual enslavement of half their population.

But it's only enslavement if they're forced to wear it.   And neither you nor I, Mr. Stentz, has any right in the world to tell a woman what she should or shouldn't wear.  It's not our issue to judge.

The attitude that a woman's body is shameful is just as prevalent in the West, even if the amount of the body addressed by that attitude has diminished to a few specific areas in recent generations.  Theoretically, we could argue that it would be a good thing for that attitude to be erased altogether, for us to consider all parts of a woman's body equally worthy of exposure.  I already believe that (and in principle about a man's body too, though I'm less strongly motivated to that belief  ;)  :devil: ).  But I think most of the women here would feel pretty oppressed if some man tried to convince them they were wrong to cover their bodies to whatever extent they're comfortable with.  So if we really care about women's freedom, we should just shut up and let them make their own decisions about their bodies.

They thought they'd been sent a stripper with a pot belly and diminutive chest and shoulders?

If that guy could get the job done, then why do all the strippers I've seen in those brief clips that come on TV occasionally, and the one I knew in real life, look so much more top-heavy, the others (more like this guy) having obviously been filtered out?
