questioning the status quo

I often think about the gender roles in ballroom dancing, and what I can do to upend all that. I’m bothered by a number of issues, but my primary issue is how male-dominated the activity is, despite the fact there are generally many more female ballroom dancers than male. The team had an issue this semester with a coach not respecting boundaries and teaching professionally. He isn’t teaching us any more, but that affair’s been weighing heavily on my mind. Ugh, sexism is so ugly. I wish it was all laid out neatly so I could at least know if I’m partaking of it.
