22 YO Dad refuses to help pay for car because daughter doesn’t want to quit stripper job ‘because it’s easy’
Many 80’s and 90’s detectives and thrillers were guaranteed to have at least one scene in a strip club. This is how producers implemented the simple concept of “selling sex.” Today, such notions in popular culture already seem completely inappropriate, but the action of the story we want to tell partly unfolds there.
In fact, some people still classify jobs as “decent” and “vulgar”, and even partially classify stripper jobs in the second category. Reddit user u/LivingWitHorsehe did when he had a conflict with his own daughter over an exotic dance.

According to one study, almost one-third of strippers are actually students, largely due to the high cost of college education.
In fact, the story seems incredibly trivial: there’s a father under 50, and an adult daughter who’s in college and lives on campus. And then one day her daughter asked her father to help pay for her car, to which her parent agreed without any additional conditions (remember, this is a story important for further understanding!)
And a young man, one of his father’s co-workers, happened to walk into a local strip club one night and who do you think he saw there? Yes, his co-worker’s daughter. I don’t know if the girl talked to this guy, if so I don’t know what they talked about but the fact that the next day a colleague went to his father and told him everything So he was upset and offended and went to campus to sort it out.
However, the girl said that this is just a part-time job while in college. Her father opposed, in his opinion, at least a more “decent” job at the local McDonald’s, and said her daughter had no intention of quitting the strip club. After all, this was “easy money” and her father was furious that she could make money so easily that she would be able to cope with her car payments. He will stop providing financial support at this point.
Of course, a scandal erupted and the daughter accused her father of manipulative. But the man was adamant. But even his wife here had no additional agreement with his daughter, so no matter how resentful he was of his daughter’s moonlighting, it would be at least a disgrace to violate the terms of their contract. and did not take his side.

To tell you the truth, this question is nothing new. Ten years ago, there was a special study by British researchers Dr. Thera Saunders and Dr. Kate Hardy of the University of Leeds, interviewing about 200 dancers in pubs and strip clubs around the world. In the UK, we found that 29.4% are actually students. “The main reasons students started stripping were the high cost of tertiary education, the unavailability of loans and vocational course support, and the ability to combine stripping jobs with educational course requirements.” the study said.
Additionally, researchers are calling for an end to stigmatizing research in the field of exotic dance. Especially since society even tends to condemn research in this area. “When studies of stripping are dismissed, joked, or inappropriately sexualized, this is a problem most sexuality researchers are familiar with,” claims Katherine Frank. . PhD from University of Nevada“The claim that research on exotic dances is innovative and not taken seriously is tied together through cultural assumptions about the nature of the sex industry. It affects both the physical framework – excursion into uncharted territory, danger, stigmatization and stigmatization.”
But most of the people in the comments on the original post didn’t like to delve into the details of modern society’s perception of exotic dances, but firstly, the father for adding terms to the agreement after the fact. severely condemned. He was ashamed of his own daughter, and thirdly, for not keeping his word. But even abstracting from the ethical side of the conflict, men seem to have achieved the exact opposite result. I have to strip more!” one commenter aptly noted.
In any case, the situation looks pretty ugly from the father’s side – from the side of the “talking colleague” who also harshly bashed people in the comments. By the way, if you’ve already expressed your opinion about who is right and who isn’t in this particular story, feel free to voice it in the comments below this post.
