I’ve often wondered about establishments like Hooters and their hiring practices/legal issues… obviously, they discriminate in some way because their employees are almost all thin blonde bimbo… er, exuberant cheerful young ladies. How is this legal? Are there other examples of this (Chippendales, for example?). Since Hooters is a restaurant, I have trouble understanding how it could skirt the legal requirement to hire regardless of sex or disability.
Apologies if this has been asked before, I’m relatively new.

I’m truly curious.
sexual orientation - depends on state/city law
race - no, federal law
sex - no, federal law, possibly some exceptions for explicitly male/female services (e.g. maybe an OB/gyn could refuse to be primary care doctor for a male)
sickness - yes (but disability, NO!)
dressing well - yes (unless it is a proxy for race)
Dodge Caravan - yes
The business owner has the right unless the government takes it away.
