I can stay silent no longer! Please or offend, time to comment on pole dancing as a keep fit activity for young girls.
I am so fed up of listening to women, some of them mothers, defending this pursuit as nothing more than a body toning activity, nothing sexual just good exercise for their seven year olds!
Arrgh! May I remind you, pole dancing is a product of the sex industry. I have no doubt it is physically demanding, as I also imagine lap dancing is great for the hips and balance, but knowing the connotations why would you want your daughter anywhere near either of them?
Let’s stop kidding ourselves and encourage our girls to keep fit in other ways.
It is too early to measure the impact of girls as young as seven dancing around a pole, but I, for one do not want to see us glamourising this activity – the pole may be slippier than you think!
