The G-String Scholarship: College Students Strip to Pay Tuition Costs
ABC News ^ | 05/20/2014 | By JUJU CHANG and MICHAEL CAPPETTA JUJU CHANG

Posted on 05/23/2014 12:48:15 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Maggie is a straight-laced, straight-A student studying to become an international affairs lawyer, who will graduate debt-free all thanks to the unusual way she pays her tuition.

Maggie, 23, a double-major in Spanish and political science, is a student by day and a stripper by night. Every other weekend, Maggie, who asked that her last name not be used, takes the three-hour ride from her college in Maryland to Manhattan, where she performs at a dance club called Scores.

“I have a class that ends at 5:30, hop on a bus at 6:00, and be at work by 8:30,” Maggie said.

Maggie is part of a new generation of women putting themselves through college by taking their clothes off, and they are unapologetic about it.

“This takes a lot of brains,” Maggie said. “A girl can be really pretty and not make any money in this field, or she cannot be pretty and make a lot of money because so much of it is about interpersonal skills.”

Maggie is one of 24 women at Scores who are putting themselves through school and stripping to make as much money as possible before they get their diplomas. A fellow dancer, who asked to be called "Jade," is also a college student in New York, studying for five finals, who strips to pay for school.

“When I grow up, I’m hoping to become a forensic psychologist for the judicial system,” she said.

On the strip club here in Memphis, the sign reads “Now Hiring Class of 2014”.

That one did not generate the press as one a couple of weeks before, “Support Single Moms”. That one got a lot of people mad.

Just trust me, your honor ... I've seen this kind before ... he's nothing but a sexual pervert and should be locked away forever.

Maggie admits that there are times when she feels degraded in her line of work when some of the male clients at Scores are disrespectful. “I’ve had guys try and do all kinds of crazy things,” she said. “They don’t view us as women sometimes. They think that we are degrading ourselves by doing this job at all so they don’t have a problem degrading us further.”

Ahh, the strip club, where sad, shallow women extort money from sad, shallow men by pretending to like them.

Good times.

'She said she makes $180,000 a year stripping, and she will actually take a pay cut when she becomes a lawyer. '

Ladies have been stripping and going to college for years. Some at the same time.

At the nudie bar....

Where the music stinks, and they water the drinks, at the nudie bar.
Where the girlies dance in their underpants, at the nudie bar.
Where you see their butt, and their trap stays shut, at the nudie bar.

The word is “strait-laced,” not “straight-laced.”

Is there such a thing as a professional journalist anymore?

And my parents had an absolute fit and kicked me out of the family for several years when they discovered I was trying to earn extra money during college by working at a restaurant that served alcoholic beverages with a meal. My, my how times have changed.

New? Hardly. Girls were stripping for tuition money when I was in college 20 years ago.

The truth of the matter is that when we educate our girls to use birth control, have abortions and tell them God Is dead, why would anyone be shocked that many of them are willing to be whores? After all what are the consequence's? When you can erase a life to make it never happen, when a women can have sex with the same cavalier approach as a sailor on shore leave, Why the surprise?

This is what the Leftist wants.

If this is true -- and I will go look -- then I give the author a pass. I would have made this mistake.

Ho hum. Let’s see, the purpose of this story is to help the Democrats push free tuition as their latest save the Senate election ploy?
That means that these women are ‘composites’ of real women, all of them Democrat operatives, right? Isn’t that the way this usually works?

No, I meant going from stripping to lawyering. Clearly a step down.

According to Merriam, 'straitlaced' (no hyphen) is the original, but 'strait-laced' and 'straight-laced' are both acceptable replacements.. Oxford (which agrees) consider 'strait-laced' to be obsolete, replaced by 'straight-laced'.

It will be a step down for her, in compensation.

She claims to be making $180,000/year: enough to pay for college and set some savings aside for when she expects to earn less after graduating.

Maggie, 23, a double-major in Spanish and political science, is a student by day and a stripper by night.

I am having trouble figuring out which is more unseemly... Going to College to be a double major in Espanol and PoliSci, or being a stripper? What are her career plans? Aspiring to be some Jeffe' in Latin America? Organizing a PAC amongst all the Gardeners in California?

Eh, it is unfair for me to dump on Liberal Art majors. Maybe she is just getting an Education for Education sake (which is good). Just strikes me as an odd major.

The only way this whole thing adds up is if she goes to Cecil Community College in Maryland and at 5:30 drives to Wilmington, Delaware (30 minutes) and gets the 6pm bus to New York (2.5 hours).

Cecil’s tuition is only $5,500/in state and the only offer a 2 year AA. She could work at McDonalds and cover her tuition there. I guess she’s saving up for law school ;-)
