    Pole Dancing actually is being transformed into a fitness/aerobics-based act:

    I think it’s kind of cool that we can take this thing that men used to sexually exploit us and turn it into something that literally gives us physical strength.

    This is disgraceful! We have become so desensitized that we cannot see what is really going on here, the sexualization of our daughters.

    As was said in the video… Why try to normalise a sexual activity when there are so many other options for kids to do exercise… such as the local park?!

    Wow, some parents really like to kid themselves! If they only want their kids to have fum and get excercise there are a million other activities out there! How are those little girls going to view themselves once they are old enough to view what pole dancing is used for???

    I find that appalling. Being a parent my self i would never let my beautiful little girls participate at such an age.

You can defend their right to childhood

Everyday our young people are exposed to more brands continuing to sexualise girls and objectify women. You can bring change to this sexploitation, stop companies from degrading women and prevent its devastating effects on young people.
