Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

Except strippers DEFINITELY DID NOT invent pole dancing. 
Pole dancing goes waaaay back, like, 500 years ago to the Indian sport of Mallakhamb, which is SUPER BADASS AND YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT. 
The Chinese pole, originating in India, uses two poles on which men would perform “gravity defying tricks” as they leap from pole to pole, at approximately twenty feet in the air.
In the 1920s, traveling circuses and sideshows would utilize pole dancing with a pole in the middle of a tent. Eventually the pole dancing moved from tents to bars, and combined with burlesque dance.
So yes - People took pole dancing and made it sexual on purpose. 
Can people make it not sexual again? Maybe. It’s super badass, super pretty and I fully support anyone who wants to pursue pole dancing as an athletic (or sexual) activity. 
Can we take the ‘stripper’ part out of it? No - it’s part of the history now. That’d be like trying to take the Italian influence out of glassblowing. 
Can we make it less stigmatized by trying to promote its use in non-sexualized or public-friendly ways? Hell yeah~

"Depression is stupid and not a thing that makes me a better writer. One time I went a whole year without writing and I stayed in bed and drank. Fuck your Bukowskisms. I want sunlight and love and running down some street I’ve never been on where it’s warm and cool at the same time and I’m smiling. I want nothing to ever be bad again- and I don’t mean that I want a life free of conflict, I mean that I want a life free of meaningless conflict. Not being able to will oneself to take a shower or leave the house is meaningless. There is nothing to be gained, no lesson to be learned from that kind of life. My heart is stale, my prose is stale. Give me fire if you want to hurt me. Give me something I can taste. There’s nothing romantic or mysterious about where I am. There’s nothing here worth holding onto."
