– Re: sexism in tango... is tango really sexist?

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 !
"Tango es una forma de ser" (H.Ferrer)
As a man, I would like to comment on this:
