Twerking is definitely a sexualized and objectifying dance. Watch a REAL twerking video and you'll see. Does it have cultural ties to dances from Africa? Sure, but let's not play here. These days it's more culturally relevant to the strip club and dirty rap lyrics. Twerking has never been popular in the mainstream, until trap music glorifying strip club culture reached suburbia. Just sayin.
I agree.
This strip club culture has had a huge impact on music (Af American) and fashion, and these influences are being normalized on tv.

I don't think girls should aspire to or glamorize it and I'm glad the school isn't taking it lightly. (Tho I don't agree w/ the punishment.)
