Previously from leenia
Women dancers suffer a lot from male directors' belief that high heels are sexy.

Pan's people "director"

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.)

Protesting doesn't pay the rent or put food on the table.

Very poor, John. Sorry. If everyone thought that way nothing would ever get done. We need firebrands. We need rebels. If you are so concerned with putting food on their table, sponsor them or help them. Don't give us the usual capitalist platitudes. You can protest better from a position of power and that is where lots of women are. Stop sucking up to male dominated press. Stop pandering to the fashion industry. It's the only way anything will get done, Brothers! And Sisters... :-)

We are not quite ready to invoke Godwinson's Law

But I have Hilter & the Nazis waiting in the wings.

Don't annoy them!

Mr Red == The propogator of the "mention-of-Hitler" law was actually called Godwin. I am pedantic about this, because my dear late first wife's maiden name happened to be Godwin [no relation], & she and her family suffered from being constantly rendered as Goodwin. Your Godwinson seems to be a further wrinkle! My own family (Myer) have always suffered similar abuse in form of Myers, a much more common form; or Mayer or Meyer...*

Sorry for drift; but those with such names will sympathise I am sure.

≈M≈

*Tho not consistent in the family worldwide. Louis B Mayer, the famous film-maker, was actually my paternal grandfather's first cousin...

It's official: Men can dance in heels better than women.
