i would like to make this comparison:
splits and body rolls and leg extensions to reveal the pelvis area are common in ballet/contemporary dancing but are also found in pop music as well but anyone how goes to a free form dance or ballet knows that it’s not sexual its a movement, its an art, it can convey more than just openning your legs. It’s not inherently sexual and one must divorce notions of sexualizing every single female body part
if it makes you uncomfortable to see a young girl bouncing her butt, its probably because you are looking at it in a sexual manner and that is gross
