Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
Holy shit she’s like a ninja on a pole!
To some extent, I think pole dancing should be an Olympic sport… HOWEVER strippers invented it, it was made to be sexy and most of the time you see pole dancing, it is sexy. It’s also in revealing clothing because skin grips better or whatever the reason is, it’s more of a dance. Sure it doesn’t have to be sexy, but even still, it’s expressive, it’s a dance, it’s a performance. Olympic sports are not the same thing, and for pole dancing to be a part of the Olympics then they’d have to take all of the fun, like the expression, the costumes, the performance as a whole, all the creativity out of it. And to be honest, I’d rather see the performance that pole dancing can be. Not the sport.
