i'm not going to presume to tell anyone what they 'should' care about!<P>(well, truth to tell, i certainly DO when it comes to animal welfare,and other moral issues, but outside of THAT territory i do TRY to let adults be adults...)<P>certainly we should care that the majority of choreographers are MEN, just like we should care that the majority of politicians are MEN! (this is the 'moral issue' bit!)<P>52% of the world is female - being represented in the political process of opinion-forming and decision-making, and in the artistic and cultural-expression of choreography, by a tiny minority, of women.<P>it stands to reason that our world might be better balanced if a more represenative sample of 'beings' were in positions of power, influence, and expression. (by 'beings', i include animals and trees! is THAT 'zany' enough for you, azlan?
lol)<P>however, re gender, "how does one tell?" <P>well, how DOES one tell how one tells!....<P>...it's SO complex, rather like identifying (or misidentifying) someone's gender or age or appearance on the internet - there are a myriad of signals, some conscious, some unconscious, that we process and assess, according to our experience...<P>-no easy answer here. sorry! <p>[This message has been edited by grace (edited July 07, 2000).]
