Subject: RE: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Leeneia, I see my mistake now. I assumed that by "male directors" you meant men. But of course those directors could just as well be boys or male orangutans.

For the record, I don't much care to see women in high heels, especially dancing. Those sailors' hornpipe dancers looked very good in tennis shoes. And I don't like to see women do any of the other things that give them an artificial and non-feminine look. But I assume it's their choice and so I don't say anything about it unless someone suggests that men require it. I just want to assert that at least some of us do not require it or even prefer it.

The last time I clarified my feelings about this, the woman whose statement I had challenged hooted, "You? You don't even have a job!" (Actually, I was gainfully self-employed at the time, though admittedly in a low income bracket.)
