What next, a play on her name?

A Singapore nightclub has launched an initiative which rewards gals with free booze depending on the size of their chesticles, the China Times reports. The OverEasy club decided to launch its "Fill My Cups" promotion to punt events featuring Oz DJ DCUP. Cheryl Ho, spokeswoman for the venue's owner, explained: "It was really a …
Not fun, that.
Of course, to play the stereotypes and subvert the bar it might be fun to bus a load of women from certain countries into the bar.
I suspect women with a D cup or above are relatively infrequent in China, but they're certainly not in the UK. It'd still temporarily be degrading women, but completely emptying the bar of bottles of vodka (and then leaving) would be amusing.
I'm by no means against fair play, equating female to male rights as best we can, but sometimes I just stop and have to say "... really? this is a big deal to you?"
If a guy suggests something like this, a wet tshirt contest, a women's night, or in this case, Tat for tit, and women openly and enjoyably agree to participating, then it's chauvinism and degrading to women (who had no problem and volunteered). Now, take that same initiative by a female, which might not be exactly the same venue, but none the less similar in outcome, and it's suddenly acceptable, infact often treated as clever, because they're minipulating the system to their advantage (their advantage being able to get something for being, well, a women).
Frankly, I think thats great. I honestly think we've built up a pedistal for the female body, and there is nothing wrong with admiring it as a thing of beauty. But, it is neither feminist, nor anti feminist/degrading to make use of that. In all fairness, its pitching to the converted.
I'm waiting for the upset females who disagree, but frankly, that's all there is to it. I don't take off my pants for hamburgers, wether it's a guy or a girl who suggests it at a pub, but that's my M.O., I certainly don't call it an attack on my gender, and neither should you.
Ive worked in Singapore, and let me tell you this is run of the mill stuff. Bars like Coyote Ugly (yes, named after the film) positively encourage female guests to strip their tops off and dance on the bar. It is, quite literally, full of merchant bankers cheering them all on. For that matter, it is usually female merchant bankers dancing on the bar.
