(Salon)   It seems there really are strippers out there who have hearts of gold, like this woman who worked at a nonprofit during the day and gave lap dances to New York businessmen at night   (salon.com ) divider line

This article is terrible without pics, so I'll ruin the ending. She has an abortion.

Also Snape killed Dumbledore.

Is this her?

It's sad that she had to be so ashamed of her occupation. If she'd been able to be more honest with her roommates, family, etc. she might have found more support and been able to handle that period in her life better.

"I was prettier than he deserved."

Sounds like Rick dodged a bullet with this one.

No kidding, that really cut down on the dances.

TLDR: stripping changes women.  They get very skilled at negotiation and detecting BS.   However, they tend to end up being less stable and loyal when it comes to dating.

What a whore.

And she actually was a craiglist whore and wrote an article about it.

Nice body, butter face.  Attention whore.

So I suppose the next article she writes will be about her academic adventure in doing coke and heroin? "Dear Salon/HuffPo, here is the story of how I got supercanceraids and how it made me a better specialsnowflake writer."

Both jobs she was trying to give a leg up to desperate folks.

The only way I could see her being a stripper was if she worked here.

In fact what was the cartoon with the mouse family? I was already an adult with no kids, so I don't remember the name, but that chick looks exactly like momma mouse. Any help?

I think I might have been thinking of "Stuart little" if they showed his mom. Could have just been a latent drug hallucination. In any case, chick looks like a cheese eater to me.

Nonprofit does not mean 'good guys', it is just a name for a business model.

The only thing that makes a nonprofit different from any other business is the method in which the profits are distributed.

Don't play the dumbass sucker here farkers.  Business is always business.

Thanks for recommending that incredibly pointless, boring story by an incredibly boring, stupid person, subby.  Now we all know how not to write things.

I wish there was a decent strip club around here that served booze.  The ones in San Francisco not only don't serve booze, they have a cover AND a three drink minimum.  I don't want three farking colas unless there's some farking rum in it, biatch.

Also, the women in SF strip clubs are ugly skanks.

I don't get all the hate.
Dnrta, (of course) but going by what people are saying here I don't get it.
Is she condescending? Holier than thou because of the non-profit?

So did she have a vagina surgically placed in her armpit, or is it a birth defect?

Not really. Writing is actually pretty good.

The hate is because twice she says something about being pretty. And implies that her boyfriend has pointy knees or something. All the while, giving the reader a taste of what it's like being a stripper at an expensive place and how her life decisions kind of suck, but she doesn't have a lot of alternatives.

Never rob a strip club.  You might pull a couple thousand, but you'll throw your back out trying to get the cash to your car.

I wonder what cologne her daddy wears.  I wouldn't even have to pay for it.

Well, there is a big societal stigma in working for a non-profit, so I understand why she would hide that.

...C'mon down to Columbia.  We only have two - Platinum Plus and Heartbreakers - but they're reasonably priced, the ladies are attractive and very playful.
