Contribution to the local culture of acceptance
It’s totally normal for anybody to patronize Atlanta strip clubs. The dancers in other cities undoubtedly do it for the money, but do they also do it for the culture? Atlanta dancers tend to make careers out of stripping -- word to the immortal Blondie of Clermont Lounge. That’s not only because they get rich, but also because there’s no stigma attached to dancers in Atlanta. People realize that not many women get into dancing because of ambition. Believe it or not, your dancer would probably prefer doing something else. But if you’re cool, then she might be cool, which makes the whole premise cool, even to those who don’t quite get it.
Wives don’t trip when their husbands say they’re headed to strip clubs with friends, because as far as they’re concerned, you might as well be going to a Falcons game, or church. It sounds crazy, but the same crowd will probably be joining you there. Don’t even ask how many major business deals that have impacted the city and beyond were probably closed at an Atlanta strip club that stayed open late and provided alcohol, music, entertainment, and dinner in one place. ATL isn’t concerned about putting anybody down for what they do. You get it how you live when you’re in The City Too Busy Twerking to Hate.
