At the beginning of the month, at Brass Rail strip club in Toronto, Canada, an employee entered the building expecting to do his job business as usual. His dirty business that is. What he probably didn’t expect was to be the cause of shutting down his place of employment due to COVID.
A positive COVID test later conducted could now be the cause of hundreds of Toronto citizens ending up with the virus. Officials are contacting anyone that they have records of being at the strip club at the time the infected employee was.
But from what we know of the virus, even if they do track down every sleazy pervert that was at that club, the number of people they have come in contact with means a very widespread virus. What absolutely kills me about this is the fact that everyone pushing a mask is saying to do it not for personal safety but for the safety of others. Governors are trying to appeal to everyone’s sense of selflessness, but going to a strip club is about one of the most selfish and disgusting things I can think of.
And now, because strip clubs are not only allowed to be open, but people are going to them- amidst the pandemic, hundreds of people, I would argue more actually, have been exposed to COVID.
I looked up Toronto’s order regarding churches and while they are allowed to be open, there are many things that have been suspended. Children’s church, passing the collection plate, communion are a few of the many. It is understandable that churches have extra precautions in place. After all, many governors are looking for any reason to shut down churches.
In addition to that, churches actually care about people and their safety.
But why is it that children can attend children’s church but people are allowed to attend strip clubs?Does no one care about the women that are being objectified at these clubs?
No one is calling out the diseases and infections these women can obtain by the actions taking place at these clubs. Are they wearing masks while they parade around naked?
I’m pretty sure there are some other areas being exposed to the virus that aren’t being covered. It’s absolutely disgusting.
Many may call out the fact that these women choose to be there. But I would argue they wouldn’t have the option if there wasn’t a demand for pornography.
I would also argue that places like strip clubs are unsanitary and disgusting in normal situations, but amidst a pandemic, even more so.
Clearly whatever (if any) precautions and safety measures this particular strip club is taking, aren’t doing the trick. I can only imagine that if a clothed employee could spread COVID to others, the women parading around with nothing on are at even more risk than the perverts watching them. Do better, Toronto.
