It's called Benevolent Sexism and this is how it manifests within that culture. For any guy that has ever felt like it was their job to hold the door for a girl or pay for a date or whatever, you know what this is. In the end, it still reinstates gender roles in our society and technically, on a level, demeans women but a strong majority of us still do it, right?Harman said:Man or woman, a person should be able to dance bhangra regardless. Judges claiming bhangra should be strictly for men are only oppressing the dance. A woman dancing pure, traditional bhangra is a form of beauty in itself. People claiming some moves arent so aesthetically pleasing are following rules not set by bhangra. But rather they are conforming to what society believes what women look good doing. To all the females out there dancing bhangra, whether it may be live or music, keep doing what your doing.
I think it would be good for all of us to take a step back and not bash on the judges for having their deep-rooted opinions, but to make it a bigger deal for the competitions to choose judges that are appropriate for this circuit.
