You have to know what you're talking about before you can point out the posers and the best.

    Also, have you noticed that an attractive female will get comments praising whatever they are doing because they are attractive? This problem happens in gaming culture all of the time and as a woman a part of gaming culture I want to burry my head in a brick wall because the women representing female gamers are 1) not actually gamers (obvious by what they say) and 2) chosen for their looks and cleavage and thats about it. But they are given praise and wonderful comments because they are what people expect female gamers to be like. Usually sluts licking a console controller in their underwear or "sexy" cosplay, so thats what people look for and want to see who know no better. But I digress; that is a whole other problem.

    But its exactly the same in belly dance. WE know she is bad, but does everyone else? Shes flashy, shaking her hips and does it fast. Isn't that what people think belly dance is? Especially as she is not actually part of a bellydance scene; as people have stated before shes in a beauty competition! Or what about the women who use belly dance in strip clubs, it stands out and thats what people expect who don't know anything about the dance. We show them different; we promote belly dance as what it should be, but Youtube is made mostly of trolls. Trolls who know nothing and think they know everything, think everyone else is wrong and themselves always right.

    Unfortunately all we can do is ignore them and show the world what this dance really is and how it should be done!
