* Follow the Male

   (Link to YDN article)   

Why do men "lead" in ballroom dancing? Why are they expected to "pop the question" ? Why must this "popping" be accompanied by a "ring," usually a diamond ring paid for by the male?
If your generation really wants a society of egalitarian gender roles, then these sexist shibboleths need to go. Their perpetuation guarantees a unsustainable cultural hypocrisy.
Best wishes with this project.
Congratulations on graduation too.
