Your certainly right. Strippers make the choice to start dancing, and people may want the emotional detachment. I certainly agree that if people want to choose to go to those establishments it should be their choice.
I'll forgive your lack of sympathy. You probably don't know too many strippers, and probably have not studied the subject too terribly deeply.
I have an undergrad degree in Sociology and volunteer at a local Rape Recovery Center. I have a friend who is a former escort dancer (stripper). We work with several women at the RRC who are former strippers. I've studied with an emphasis on social problems, which covered among many things, pornography, stripping, and prostitution.
I don't mean to be just throwing all these credentials in your face just to win an argument, but it really will make you sad when you learn what a sad lie the sex industry is. It's a common misconception, especially with men, that strippers, prostitutes, and porn stars like sex, and enjoy what they do. The truth is that some of them do, but MOST are suffering from symptoms of depression related to a PTSD like condition related to rape and severe prolonged molestation. It sounds weird, but many of them enter the business BECAUSE they think it's where worthless whores are supposed to work, it matches what they feel on the inside.
