    Rhode Island OKs teen strippers...

    as long as they are home by 11:30pm on school nights...

    http://www.foxnews.com/video/index.h...istId=playlist


    PROVIDENCE –– Rhode Island teens under 18 can’t work with power saws or bang nails up on roofs.

    But dance at strip clubs? Sure. Just as long as the teens submit work permits, and are off the stripper’s pole by 11:30 on school nights.

    It’s enough to surprise even those in America’s mecca of striptease and sin –– Las Vegas.

    “Everybody buzzes about ‘Nevada and Sin City, tsk, tsk,’ ” said Edie Cartwright, spokeswoman for the Nevada attorney general’s office. “But we regulate it.”

    Providence police recently discovered that teen job opportunities extend into the local adult entertainment world while they were investigating a 16-year-old runaway from Boston. The girl told detectives that she worked at Cheaters strip club this spring, and the police got tips about other underage girls working at another club on Allens Avenue.

    That’s when the police found that neither state law, nor city ordinance bars minors from working at strip clubs. Those under 18 can’t buy pornography, and no one may take pictures or film minors in sexually suggestive ways. But the law doesn’t stop underage teens from stripping for money. Even if the police saw underage boys or girls on stage at a strip club, they wouldn’t be able to charge them or the club owners with a crime.

    “I’ve been doing this a long time,” said youth services Sgt. Carl Weston, “and I can’t find anything that says it’s illegal for a 16-year-old or a 17-year-old to take her top off and dance.”

    State law says that anyone who employs a person under 18 for prostitution or for “any other lewd or indecent act” faces up to 20 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines. But that isn’t enough to prevent underage girls from working in strip clubs, said senior assistant city solicitor Kevin McHugh, who researched the issue a dozen years ago when a teenage dancer was found at a raided strip club.

    The term “lewd or indecent” is subjective, McHugh said, and is applied to behavior that’s protected by the First Amendment. “Since we have strip clubs in Providence,” McHugh said, “citizens don’t consider [stripping] lewd.”

    With the age of consent at 16 in Rhode Island, the police worry that teenage strippers could take their business to the next level and offer sexual favors –– and it wouldn’t be illegal. State law currently allows indoor prostitution, and two bills intended to ban it have stalled in the General Assembly.

    State and federal child labor laws dictate the number of hours and times of days that minors may work, and forbid certain jobs considered to be hazardous. For example, those under 16 can’t work on ladders or pump gas. Youths age 16 and 17 can’t work in manufacturing or excavation.

    “Nowhere does it say anything about a kid not being able to strip,” Weston said.

    Establishments with city liquor licenses need to keep the teenagers from the booze, but not the stage. “You can’t serve alcohol if you’re under 18,” Weston said, “but you can be the target of a man’s groping hands at age 16.”

    But a Rhode Island teen stripper won’t find work in Massachusetts, where state law prohibits anyone from hiring minors under 18 for live performances involving sexual conduct.

    When questioned about Rhode Island’s law, Michael J. Healey, a spokesman for the attorney general’s office, offered a copy of the current state law but did not comment for this article.

    But Weston, of the Providence police, was adamant that the law should be changed.

    “It leads to a societal breakdown,” he said. “These are just little girls.”

    This reminds me off a topic DLR had one day on his short-lived radio gig. They were talking about the age of consent. A female caller was talking about how she lost her virginity before the age of 18 and she thought it was okay for minors to engage in sexual activity.

    Then Roth asked a question that I thought showed his absolute brilliance in provocative talk-radio, he asked the caller, and I paraphrase, "Do you think it's okay for a minor to pose nude for a magazine." The caller was stopped dead in her tracks. Dave was basically playing devil's advocate. Hey, if you think it's okay to have sex as a minor, then surely you would think it's okay to pose nude as a minor. Of course, normal thinkers couldn't fathom seeing minors pose nude, because it's such taboo.

    From the little I listened to Dave's show, it was his finest moment.

    A teenager is like a tadpole. If you look at a tadpole every day while it's growing up, one day you'll be looking at a frog. You'll know it when you see it.
    Teenagers turn into adults in the same way. One day, you're looking at an adult and you know it when you see it.

    Also, they both eat bugs, but that's beside the point.

    Naturally, it would be hard to write a law declaring exactly when the tadpole has become a frog. They all change at their own rates, in their own time.

    Wasn't it Chris Rock who said if your daughter is on the pole, you failed as a father? Pretty sure if your daughter is on the pole before she's managed to graduate high school you've really failed as a parent.

    Pay attention! She ate bugs, which are not very lean.

    I like you ziggy, but I don't know you very well at all.

    Here's a guess, though. You don't have a teenage daughter, do you?
    I'll bet that you don't.

    I don't have one either, thank God. I have two sons and that's enough pressure for me.

    I have a friend of mine whose daughter is hot, and she got a job at Hooters. The look on his face was priceless. It was like: "Yay, my daughter is a beautiful woman...and everybody wants to have sex with her....yayyyy...I have a headache..."

    I was kidding but you are correct I don't have a teenage daughter nor any kids for that matter. Its just a saying like "grass on the field, old enough to play ball."

    I do find it odd how we as a society has matured, we try to prevent our kids from maturing to a certain degree. For instance a hundred years ago it was not uncommon for teenagers to be married at 15 or earlier. They were quite capable of being married and raising a family. It was not taboo to think of 16 year old girls in that way. Today it is while they are bombarded with sex from the day they are born. You would think they would be more likely to handle it than somebody two hundred years ago but they are not.

    Regarding Hooters, well at least she has a job. Might as well use her assets while she is young. However I wouldn't go around bragging about it knowing that your friends male friends will be going there and then feeding the geese to her later on that night.

    Or get a law on the books at all. Seems to me (if I read the article correctly) that no one even thought that this sort of thing could happen, which kinda shocks the living Hasselhoff right outta me.

    Maybe the difference is that life expectancy was 37 yrs old in the 1800's and a 16 yr old girl wasn't stripping on a pole for strangers to put money in her G-string. People had to procreate at a much younger for the species to survive.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
