It isn’t fair, but that doesn’t mean it’s illegal.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals rejected claims that letting women into nightclubs for free or a reduced price as part of “Ladies’ Nights” is unconstitutional. Roy Den Hollander, a NYC-based lawyer and self-claimed anti-feminist, sued a slew of Manhattan clubs for what he called a sexist policy of letting girls in for less.

“The guys are paying for girls to party. I don’t think that’s fair,” he said. “It’s a transfer of money from the wallets of guys to the pocketbooks of girls.”

But in the ruling against Den Hollander’s claim, the court did concede, “[he] paints a picture of a bleak future, where ‘none other than what’s left of the Wall Street moguls’ will be able to afford to attend nightclubs.”

We think maybe he’s just jealous. Because, after all, when it comes to a night out on the town, it’s good to be a girl.
