The bar reportedly has been a area tack for some-more than 30 years in West Allis, Wis., a suburb about 7 miles west of Milwaukee. But Huebner pronounced she believes both a name and trademark need to be changed.
“It’s, during a really least, unnecessary, during a most, offensive. For whatever reason, we was like, ‘Let’s put it on Facebook,’ and something needs to be finished and pronounced since they only crossed a line,” Huebner said.
Many people who commented on a post trust a name suggests acceptance of indignity of women, OnMilwaukee.com reported.
“I consider some people will contend it’s a joke, though a lot of people will take it for what it is — and that’s rape culture,” Michael Reece said, according to Fox 6.
“Having something that implies any nonconsensual activity right [when] walking in a doorway is really irresponsible,” proprietor Christine Nell told WDJT-TV.

“If it is offensive, we apologize, though it’s been that approach for over 30 years,” Diane Plumeri said.

“I only don’t feel someone’s right to be annoyed is some-more critical than my right to possess a business,” Diane told WJDT-TV. “Come on in and check it out. If we find we foster raping and drug use and violence on women, that’s not a graduation here nor has it ever been,” she said.
West Allis Mayor Dan Devine told OnMilwaukee.com that it’s a free-speech issue, and “communities can’t umpire when it comes to names and sign.”
