    I realise I was probably on to a loser criticising something like ballet but it's just not something I enjoy watching ... it's the way the guys move around really ... I'm old fashioned in some respects ..

    So suggesting women only performers in lingerie was just wishful thinking and of course .. tongue in cheek

    Easy solution...just don't watch it. I don't watch ballet very often but I enjoy it when I do. What I don't like is watching people bash each other, like in boxing,
    so I don't watch it either.

    Soooo why do they have male ballet dancers ?

    Youíve just got it so backwards. In reality, female ballet dancers WISH they could move like the males do.

    Look at their height, speed, agility. LOOK AT THEIR MUSCLES. Some strong mífers. Female ballerinas are amazing athletes as well, but just canít compare in some regards. Thanks, anatomy.

    How do you know that women don't like watching those athletic men showing off their strength dancing around in tight fitting clothing?

    The saying old fashioned means you know what you say is wrong but continue to say it. Emascuting men (depriving a man of his maleness or identity) because you see them doing a prodominently female profession is just wrong. And putting said women in lingerie....don't get me started.

    Not to get your goat but..... Male or female sexism is sexism. People should be free to be themselves without criticism or being looked down on as long as they are not truly hurting someone.

    I'm guessing (Zincubus) that you don't like male ice skaters either? It's much the same as ballet, with added danger of ice & blades. I watch more ice skating
    than I do ballet...but either way, their gracefulness belies the strength & massive skill involved.
