What do you expect?...

Arrest in alleged Hooters videotaping, per CNN:
A man who worked for the Atlanta-based Hooters restaurant chain, known for its scantily clad waitresses, is accused of secretly videotaping job candidates while they changed into uniforms. ...Aponte is also being sued by five women who said he invaded their privacy and touched some of them while taking photographs of them as they tried on the Hooters uniform of low-cut tank tops and tight shorts.
Let's see, you interview for a job in which you expect your scantily clad body to be ogled, and yet you claim that your privacy was invaded when someone wants a more permanent image artifact of your body? Yes, I realize that the job candidates did not necessarily want their naked bodies to be on display; my point is that the barbarian male mindset takes their willingness to be scantily clad, for the purposes of being seen, and begins to attach such a willigness with the characteristics of a slut. Whether these women are sluts or not is irrelevant - by their actions they have cast their image to the uncouth males frequenting Hooters.
