there are lots of Clubs that let Ladies in free, and give them discount drinks. They use them as bait to lure in tha Male drunks. but you never hear the Ladies complain about this being discriminatory. I wonder why the double standard. Is it even Legal to discriminate like that. (I don't want them to stop the practice, just a topic for discussion)

The ladies dont complain because they get the free stuff.

Would you also call it discriminatory if senior citizens get discounts at movies or restaurants, or if servicemen in uniform are admitted free or at a discount?

The funny thing is, there would be howls of discrimination if the sign said "Men pay double" instead of "Women half price".

If you mean by Seniors being like frequent fliers, then they could understandably get a discount. but if you mean that just because they are old, then No, that would be discriminatory. Service Men, should not only be allowed in free, they should get paid to come in, and be given several of them Gals that got in for free as well.

I do not like the fact that it singles out one group and in essence punishes another group. The service men and women of this country do deserve to have certain perks for doing what they do, but it should be open to all veterans active or not. I see alot where active duty get somethings that a Desert Storm vet, Vietnam vet or any others that have served can not get. Were their sacrifices any less than those now. As far as ladies night that will never change but let a club switch it to men's night and I bet there would be a few women quick to make signs and walk in a circle in front to protest.

I think that Texas tried to make Ladies night illegal MANY years ago...

I was in ROTC, in college. We wore our uniforms when we hitchhiked home for the holidays, made it easier to get rides from rednecks. Does that count?

Does that mean that when the owner buy a person a meal he has to buy for the whole restaurant to avoid discrimination charges?
