Can’t everyone just get along? I thought this is America, a place where NFL football and exotic dancers should go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Thousands of families came out to Arrowhead Stadium to cheer on the Chiefs at Sunday’s home opener game. But Angela Lukenbill of Gladstone, Mo., and her fiancé Chad Smith kept their two kids at home. They said there was no room for exotic dancers next to America’s favorite sport.
Lukenbill and her fiancé said they found out on Facebook that KC Chrome, a local strip club was bringing their truck and some of their dancers to the game.
"Having strippers around family events is wrong. There are places set up for them and that’s where they need to be," she said.
John Seredich, the owner of KC Chrome, said they come out every year to try to promote their business.
All of the female dancers wear shorts and tank tops. Seredich said Lukenbill’s assessment isn’t fair.
"We're just as normal as anybody else out here. We just want to have a good time and cheer on the Chiefs," Seredich said.
This really sounds like a civil rights issue. If we take away privileges from society’s most scantily-clad, which group will be next? It’s a slippery slope we should absolutely not go down.
If people are really this worried about being subjected to objectionable material, perhaps they should be avoiding Chiefs games altogether.
