Ladies Nights

A long-running, headline-making case over New York state bars hosting "Ladies Nights" may have ended yesterday after an appeals court ruled the events are within the constitution.

Roy Den Hollander, the famed "anti-feminist" lawyer, had sued several New York clubs for promoting nights in which ladies got in for free or at reduced prices and/or drank for free or at reduced prices. His comments to the New York Daily News are priceless:

"The guys are paying for girls to party. I don't think that's fair," Den Hollander said. "It's a transfer of money fom the wallets of guys to the pocketbooks of girls."

He vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court.

Asked to estimate the odds that the high court will agree to hear his case, Den Hollander said, "about the same as some pretty young lady paying my way on a date." [NY Daily News]

In its ruling, the court rightly mocked Hollander for suggesting "without action on our part… 'none other than what's left of the Wall Street moguls' will be able to afford to attend nightclubs."

We may agree that giving ladies preferential treatment when charging customers money is definitely sexist and that this court's ruling may not be the best decision ever. However, all of us can agree that a guy calling himself an "anti-feminist" isn't really welcome on this team, even if he's actually helping equalize the sexes in a way.
