More boys are dreaming of becoming dancers than firefighters or policemen, as reality shows such as Britains Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing trigger a cultural shift.
A survey found dancing was the third most popular career choice of boys aged between two and 12just behind doctor in first place and footballers in second. More boys8 percentwant to be dancers than girls5 percent.
Some 7 percent of girls would rather be a footballer than pursue a more traditional female career, such as a nursing.

Lib parents teaching sensitivity and peace.
I have 2 New England lib brothers in law. One has a 25 year old son who graduated from college with a degree in French. He works as an “on call” bus boy in a restaurant and lives with his girl friend. Mostly he skateboards.
The other NE nephew is 26 and majored in “Shakespeare Theatre”. He’s worked at Starbucks for the past 3 years and lives with his parents.
My conservative brother in law has a 27 year old son who just served 4 years in the Army and went to Iraq with his Army wife. He now works for the Department of Defense, owns a 4,000sf home and has a 1 year old daughter.
What part of New England are they from. Boston, Hartford, Portland? :)
Pre-WWII, French boys were taught to dance. German boys were taught to shoot. It took Germany less than two months to defeat France.
Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire are in no danger of being surpassed by the 2013 versions of Vanilla Ice.

I am a professional square dance caller and dance teacher. I have led a damage control/fire team shipboard.
They surveyed children-—boys between ages 2 to 7. What did you want to be when you were those ages?
If you don't think you can measure up, then yeah, go study ballet and be a phantom pumper.

My 4-year-old wants to be a fire-breathing dragon.

IIRC, square dancing was devised to enable both sexes to meet & interact, with the purpose of encouraging marriage & procreation.
No societal decadence there.
Well, I’m in Connecticut and when I took my granddaughter to the park on Thursday, there was a pack of six 8-10 year old boys actually being boys - you know - chasing each other, shooting at each other with finger guns, the stuff boys normally like to do. And, more surprisingly, no one was complaining!
