For my American readers, have a great Thanksgiving this upcoming week. Don’t let all the food bog you down! For many of us, it’s a time to see family and that includes the relatives that don’t quite understand what you’re doing with that “stripper pole.”
How do you deal with your family members that just “don’t get it?” Do you push your love for pole dancing relentlessly to any nearby person? Or do you keep it a secret and tell no one in the world?
As for me, I don’t mention it unless it’s brought up. If the person I’m talking to is willing to be open minded, then I’ll happily share my side of the story. If they’re stubborn, then I figure it’s not worth wasting my breath. This usually happens with older males in my family. They seem to be a little off put by the idea of a younger, married female relative happily dancing around in stilettos. LOLOLOLOLOL~!
I do tend to cover up before family get togethers. I really, REALLY hate people accusing my significant other of physically abusing me. Abuse is not a joke. It’s not funny. STAHP.
