Should pole dancing become an Olympic sport?
Lately there has been talk about pole dancing becoming an Olympic sport. Supporters claim that it takes just as much muscle as figure skating and gymnastics, and it certainly takes more muscle than current events like curling. Do you believe it is right to support pole dancing in the Olympics? Will strip clubs soon become Olympic training centers? I do acknowledge that pole dancing takes a great deal of strength, and it is an extremely beautiful art form, but is it ethical to broadcast to the entire world? I know as a child I wanted to be an Olympian, like many other children. Alas, I was not willing to put in the effort and wound up doing gymnastics for recreational purposes instead. Could this happen if young girls aspire to be Olympic pole dancers, miss the cut, and become strippers with their skills?
