Sadie Hawkins is a traditional Irish dance in which the roles are reversed - the woman asks the man. Some women resonate so much with this theme that they choose to adopt it for other events, too.
So, the question is...is that wrong?
Well, I would say the answer to that question depends on your personality. If you are typically a dominating woman, a woman who tends to be drawn to feeble men, a woman who gives orders rather than receiving them...
Then to you, I would say: yes. It's wrong. Let the man ask you.
Inversely, if you are a woman who typically shies away from men, a woman who is intimidated by men, a woman who feels they must always submit to any man and is terrified of making a decision for the man....
Then to you, I would say: No, it's not wrong. Go ahead and ask him.
Now, I know what you're thinking: Wait, wait, wait, Nicole. Are you sure you got that order right? Don't you mean it the other way around?
I purposely answered it in this way. I believe that both men and women should always be challenging themselves. I believe that men and women should always intentionally make the decision that goes against the grain of their personality. Doing this will stretch you, grow you, and give you a better understanding of your capabilities and strengths.
It'll also help you break some unhealthy habits.
I say to the feeble woman: SPEAK! Your voice is valuable. Your voice is irreplaceable. Your voice must be heard.
But I say to the domineer: SIT DOWN. You are heard so much, people are beginning to tune you out. You will have a greater effect through silence.
I'm Nicole. I believe that women should have the right to ask a guy to dance whenever and however they'd like. If you agree, cool. If not, read my articles and consider my position. It's a good one.
