Hooters: “A first step to prostitution”
As we have discussed in class several times, everything is sexualized: Advertisements, comercials, and restaurants? Since I came from Venezuela, I’ve had the opportunity just once to go to the “restaurant” called Hooters. I went with some friend to celebrate, they told me that I would love hooter, and I didn’t know why they had that confidence that I would love that. At first I was expecting like a restaurant whose food would be tasteful and very varied. However, when I first got there I put a face like this—> O.O and said: ”What the heck is this place?”
I didn’t see anything special in hooters regarding the food, they don’t have anything special that other places don’t have and the food is okay. But holly cow, that “restaurant” is run by ‘hot big breast girls’ that wear a tiny shirt so people can notice their big breast, and tiny tight short. I have to be honest, everyone I know and everything I see is that hooter is well-known for the sexy waiters, not for the food or anything else. I must say, it is a very clever business strategy, I definitively think that using big breast girls with tiny shirt and shorts can increase the costumers so they can get money. However, I think that hooters is a preview of a brothel.
Every single advertisement (as shown in the pictures from above) you see a hot girl carrying beer (which every guy likes) and chicken wings. Isn’t that delicious? not the food, the girl. For me, hooters feels like a first step to what could be prostitution. I say that because you pay for sexual activities in prostitution, and in hooters, you are paying not for the food, but to see the girls wearing their tiny tight uniforms. Even though there is not sexual activities in hooters, the girls letting other people pay to see them is almost like the same.
Restaurants are now sexualized, what could be expecting us in the future? other thing is that the hooters logo is an owl with two big eye in the oo of hooters. Owl are recognize for their shine big eyes. and what about the hOOters? that clearly represents the big breast of the girls, that means that the owl is represented by the people that goes to hooters and stare at the big breast of the girls. This is way I called hooters the “hidden brothel” it is just a first step to prostitution that covers themselves with food like normal restaurants.
