If you are a stripper/dancer/exotic entertainer then you have heard this battle rage on in a dressing room somewhere. Some girls want to be called dancers, because they are after all dancing. Some girls prefer the title of “exotic entertainer” because it sounds more fitting and appropriate to what they do. Then you have girls like me that don’t give a shit and just go with stripper. It is what it is.
I have never understood why girls get upset over a simple word. I hear all the time “I am not a stripper. I dance. I put on a show. I’m a dancer.” Well, actually no one cares. The men who come in could give a shit less if you put on a good show. Sure it may help your stage tips a little bit, but the guys just want to see you naked or they want to talk.
I say don’t get offended and just roll with it. I’ve been a “stripper” ten years. I can tell you from personal experience it dosen’t matter what the fuck you are called. GUYS DON’T CARE! Also, if you correct a guy and say “I’m not a stripper, I prefer Dancer,” then you just look like a snobby bitch. YOU WORK IN A STRIP CLUB! GET OVER YOURSELF! You take your clothes off for money. How seriously can you really take yourself anyway? Sure our job is awesome and cool! But in the end “It is what it is.”
