๐Ÿ”ธ #PoleControversy no.17 -> Magic Mike = pro or anti-feminist? <- In light of controversies surrounding female-dominated sexualised dance, it's interesting to see how the public reacts when the roles are inverted. Magic Mike was overall well received, despite the fact that its premises is a boys club that travels around and strips. Would a film about strippers get as much encouragement and excitement from fellow women let alone men as did Magic Mike? I've read some reviews stating Magic Mike is feminist, because it treats women as human being, listens to their problems if you like (does it though?), but I am in more solidarity with @thegoodmenproject's 2012 article, that says "the film is a 110 minute sausage-fest that sells to women who read 50 shades of grey", that "capitalises on women's sexuality". We are tricked into believing our sexual freedom is declared by screeching when mike tears off his clothes. Fuck. Couldn't have said it better myself. . #poledancing #poledance #poledancer #aerialhoop #silks #circus #melbournecircus #melbournefringefestival #melbournefestivals @melbfringe #pavillionunplugged #meatmarket #sexualityofwomen #sexuality #whatisimmorality #socialconstructs #morality #poleclothes #polecompetitions #controversies #controversy
So grateful I get to spend the week immersed in my passion with amazing mentors. Fully devoting time to myself is a rarity and I'm digging every minute of it. ๐Ÿ’™ @trianglecircusarts #aerialsilks #teachertraining #paperdollmilitia #aerialist #tissu #fabric #circus #silks
๐Ÿ”ธ #PoleControversy no.16 -> Pole Dancing Injuries <- Even though it is perceived as a light-headed easy type of fitness, Pole Dancing has a reputation for injuries. Just like gymnastics, ballet, martial arts, you get strained wrists, rolled ankles, dislocated shoulders, pulled hamstrings, and that's if you are just overtraining the tricks. Worse cases are you can fall off the pole or land inconveniently and break any bone in your body, or a number. Pole dancers come back from injuries every month, having to take it slow. Last year alone, Adam Lin broke his ankle on stage at pole dance championship and Jason Lam had an awful aerial accident and had to undergo neck and spinal surgery (pole community has come together with his friends and family and has since raised $80,000 for rehabilitation). It's dreadfully scary, but like all athletes we sacrifice for our passion. . #poledancing #poledance #poledancer #aerialhoop #silks #circus #melbournecircus #melbournefringefestival #melbournefestivals @melbfringe #pavillionunplugged #meatmarket #injuries #polesport #whatisimmorality #socialconstructs #morality #poleclothes #polecompetitions #controversies #controversy

๐Ÿ”น #PoleControversy no.15 -> Pregnancy and Pole Dance <- Last year our girl @cleothehurricane has pole danced in her third trimester and the world gone mad. Criticised for her choices, strangers expressed their unasked for opinions on the health of her unborn child and proposed that splits (out of all things) would be dangerous. Her boy was born healthy (surprise surprise) and she wrote a lot of loosing her sense of sexuality during pregnancy, and how hard it was for a pole star to get back into pole surrounded by people that knew her and she couldn't do basic tricks. Fortunately, however, she received a lot of support and is gaining back her strength now! As for pole dancing and pregnancy, the expert opinion is that it's better to restrain in first trimester while the baby is forming, but for the rest of the time, it's not hurting anyone, it just gets harder because your tummy is growing. . #poledancing #poledance #poledancer #aerialhoop #silks #circus #melbournecircus #melbournefringefestival #melbournefestivals @melbfringe #pavillionunplugged #meatmarket #sexualityofwomen #children #pregnancy #polepregnancy #whatisimmorality #socialconstructs #morality #poleclothes #polecompetitions #controversies #controversy
๐Ÿ”ธ #PoleControversy no.14 -> G-string vs full coverage <- Perhaps contrary to mainstream belief, most pole competitions require a minimum amount of clothing to be worn on stage at all times, with g-strings and pasties not being permitted. Good or bad? I don't know. I never really understood the outrage of nudity, so the restrictions seem strange to me.
