Re: sexism in tango... is tango really sexist?
— by Richard Richard
As a man, I would like to comment on this:

1. The Man is the leader (usually - my partner frequently leads during Practica and I give my best to follow), BUT Tango is a form of communication. If I am to strict in leading, a lot of experienced followers are well able to take their freedom (without forcing me) !

2. The leader may try to chose the follower. In fact the follower choses the leader by accepting or not !

Is Tango sexistic ? Definitely NO!

This is the language of Tango:
He says: "I can have EVERY woman !"
She says: "Dream on, you will NEVER have me !"

Is this sexism ? It is called machism !

Regards,
