??Lesbian??

I was just wondering how everyone feels about lesbians who dance, or attend get togethers.
I have a friend who enjoys dancing so much, but she wants everyone to know her life style. I was just wondering how people would react to her.
For myself, I find it ok, not only because shes a really close friend. I respect it because she's her own individual self, and the least I could do is accept it and be happy.
Just wondering what everyone else would think.

i don't think there's a problem with her dancing. If she really really wants to dance, and her heart is in it, then the fact that she's a lesbian shouldn't even matter. :)

Exactly! Besides there are laws that are based on discrimination for race, sexual orientation, religion, etc.... Called the Canadain Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Then again, this is the US, so I am sure there is something the same down there.:)

I agree. Your self worth is not determined on what gender we like, even if it is our own.

Dancing shouldn't be a prob. It could turn into a problem if she checks out some of the other ladies in the dressing room.

I've heard some people say that they can just feel it when someone is looking at them.

i agree with what others have said. let her dance. one's sexual orientation doesn't make one's dancing ability. i happen to be bi-sexual, and i have friends that i see at pow wows here and there who know and aren't bothered by it.

For the record, I've seen quite a few men dancing as fancy shawl - especially in the Dakotas, and Montana.... I imagine of no one makes a huge public fuss about that, then the odd lesbian or two shouldn't matter much.

Still, dispariging comments about sexual and gender orientation are ogten stated just loud enough for the people around to hear are often ... heard.

What lesbian?

It shouldn't matter about her sexual preferance at all
what matters is young ladys carring them selfs as ladys following the rules you know keeping thangs respectable at all times
and if people are uncomfertable about it don't bring it to them and put it in their face to except it cause every one has the right to feel and make their own choices in life but just remeber to be carefull with the choices you make in life cause the wrong choices can bring you pain and confusion

Let her dance, but why does she feel the need to tell everyone what her sexual preference is? I don't introduce myslef with "Hi my name is Amanda and I'm heterosexual." She should dance, but she shouldn't make her sexual preference an issue at a pow wow, it's inappropriate.

Where at in Montana? Men dancing fancy shawl...as in "Competition" or in "switch dancing"? We have Mens Fancy Shawl and Mens Jingle contests...but they are more for fun than anything.

I agree, it's inappropriate to announce which set of genitals one likes, or is it? If the MC can make jokes about snagging does this mean it's a free for all, no holds barred? Or should it be understood that his remarks are for all of us heterosexuals only, which I wouldn't mind. Gotta keep the freaks at bay, right? lol
