I just cannot believe this. Is this mother on MN if so.... WTF misses?

MissVerinder Sun 12-Jun-11 22:31:41

FFS. The sparkles, I get, but pole dancing?

clemetteattlee Sun 12-Jun-11 22:32:31

Jesus, I don't generally judge but, WTF indeed

"‘They wanted to join in because it is such fun. There is nothing sexual about it. I am trying to remove the stigma from pole dancing and show that it actually helps children keep fit and learn balance, much like gym classes."

The whole point of pole dancing is to entice men it was never anything else. That is what it was invented for not keeping fit there is no stigma. What a deluded, ridicules and dangerous human being. Grr.

I clicked on the link - its the DM so twisted as flippety fuck story as you can get. A pound to a penny the woman probably didn't utter a word of what is written.....

I am going to play devils advocate here.

We all know how the DM likes to twist shit and make anything into a scandal.

Pole dancing is very athletic. I have seen women do it PROPERLY and it is nothing more than very good gymnastics. It does not have to be sleazy.

You could compare it to latin or ballroom dancing, which when done by adults can be very sensual and provocative, but when done by children is nothing more than learning to dance.

surely this is a DM windup?

<quietly despairs, head in hands>

Well, I wouldn't let my 5 year old do it, good exercise or not. The connotations will always be there.

"You could compare it to latin or ballroom dancing, which when done by adults can be very sensual and provocative, but when done by children is nothing more than learning to dance"

But when do people cha cha naked?

Having said that, more men should take it up grin

Wow, he was amazing!

CheerfulYank Mon 13-Jun-11 05:54:11

He was great! smile

If you're saying it's "just like a gymnastics class" , then why don't you just, you know, enroll them in gymnastics ?!

Tee2072 Mon 13-Jun-11 06:42:59

While I understand the objections, watching that guy do it reminded me of the acrobats on ropes in the Circ du Solie or however you spell it.

So maybe not like gymnastics but like acrobatics?

But, again, just send them to acrobatics class....

God don't let my MIL see this. She already thinks 'make overs' are an appropriate way to spend the afternoon with her granddaughter!

lisad123 Mon 13-Jun-11 10:19:33

That's terrible confused
Why would you do that? I get that it's good exercise but surely any other activity would be better than that!!

"She said pole dancing originated from a traditional Indian sport called Malkhamb in which gymnasts, including many children, performed around a wooden pole. She added: ‘I’m not a scumbag. ’"

Oh, I disagree.

The huns are taking over the bastard world...

Oh please.

bupcakesandcunting Mon 13-Jun-11 10:32:53

So, working by that logic, learning how to striptease is learning how to dance. If the kids are interested and it gets them off the sofa, why not?

I hope that no-one from Spearmint Rhino is reading this or I have probably just given them a gratis business idea.

didn't see matty shields once lick the pole or wipe his sweaty crotch on it grin

bruffin Mon 13-Jun-11 10:40:02

She is a tv wannabee probably trying to get publicity.

jbcbj Mon 13-Jun-11 10:40:31

that bloke was fantastic!!! that said, i wouldn't let dd do it, sleazy or not there are connotations and expectations. the picture of the little girl in a teeny-tiny crop top says it all really. dd can go to tumble tots instead....

TheBigJessie Mon 13-Jun-11 10:47:29

Sure, I can see how it could aid one to "keep fit and learn balance". But wouldn't gymnasticsdo it better? Or ballet? Or karate? Or judo?

There's more to those, than trying to be sexually attractive, and thus a greater potential for building athletic skill. And if you have talent, you can enter competitions, and get medal. With the latter two, you can learn to defend yourself.

If you want sleazy, you should see freestyle disco dancing competitions. There was one at the weekend, where DD does gymnastics.

If you want to see pre-pubescent girls with fake tan, hair extensions, false eyelashes and blingtastic cutaway leotards prowl and pout their way round the judges, then this would be your thing.

The shame is that it looks like an energetic and fun sport, but it is so hypersexualised that I wouldn't want a young DD of mine to do it. Honestly, I watched 7 year old slink into the arena with a hip-rolling walk that would've done justice to a 30 year old hooker.

Gooseberrybushes Mon 13-Jun-11 11:06:34

Butter - why were you there if your daughters don't do it?
