I'm actually quite a fan of your writing LesMis....sorry for my outburst....it won't happen again.
Oh goodness please don't be ashamed!!! I loved the response Les gave because it was excruciatingly accurate with a twist.
You have every right to
feel and think whatever you like and this is a thread that benefits far more from honesty and lack of veils than social politeness.
You were being honest and you got honest responses back. That's what we're here for! The great thing about being honest (whether it's an outburst or
not) is it gives us an honest chance to reflect.
Here is my honest feeling:
You are as subtly influenced by the sexism of your time
as Nietzsche was by his.
When you two decided to change the song on the dance floor which as far as I know had avoided any real reference to gender even via "polarity" and
especially not in a
manner... the dancers on the floor were forced to shift or ignore.
Given my upbringing, I learned most of the dances of the "general" female culture of today so when I saw what dance steps you were doing I realized "I
know this song... here we go!" and you found yourself being courted by some people completely confident in their ability to dance the dance you
There is little use for the "Girl! S&F!" mindset endemic elsewhere in here. I think far too highly of women to do that, so I will treat you as firmly
and honestly as I'll treat any man when in a gender neutral arena where honesty is the only thing of real value.
Please don't stop dancing or be ashamed! You just aren't going to find many blindly submissive dance partners in here.

Must be nice. I'm stuck at work playing the role of the wanting slave.
I got so disgruntled with my industry (video games) about 8 months ago that I took what savings I have and have been on extended sabbatical trying to
figure out what role I want to play in it going forward. If any.
I am very lucky.
