Rude Bellydance Teachers

You should never go to a teacher who is rude to her students. You pay to attend Bellydance classes for fun and learning - not to be abused by the person running them.

Some people mistake rudeness for talent in this way: they figure that the teacher must be really good if she can afford to be disrespectful to her students. While that is sometimes that case, I still don't see why anyone should spend their hard-earned money to be mistreated.

My feeling is: I don't care how good a Bellydancer someone is, they're not a good teacher if they're rude to their students. And, like I said, you’re paying to learn to Bellydance, not to learn how to take abuse lying down, which is what you're ultimately doing if you stick around despite the ill-treatment you receive.

My advice to you is to find a friendly teacher and enjoy your Bellydance classes!

SAY NO TO PUPPY MILLS! SAY NO TO ANIMALS IN PETSHOPS! SAY NO TO BREEDERS!

Adopt a homeless animal instead - they all deserve a second chance

It's estimated that 130,000 dogs and 60,000 cats are killed every year in Australia because there are not enough homes for them all. And the global numbers amount to millions upon millions every single year.

Puppy mills are a major contributor to the terrible problem of overpopulation. Puppy mills are essentially 'dog factories' where dogs are forced to churn out litter after litter, with no thought for the welfare of the dogs and all thought for profit. The dogs live in appallingly dirty, cramped conditions all their lives, and when they no longer serve their purpose they're killed, dumped or sold to vivisection laboratories.

Petshops fit into the picture because puppy mills are generally where petshops get their animals from. Furthermore, having animals in shop windows encourages impulse purchases, and adding an animal to your family should be a conscious, careful decision - NOT one to be made while shoe shopping.

Breeders contribute enormously to the tragic statistics above too. And it doesn't matter whether they're professional breeders or backyard breeders, and whether they breed for profit or not, because while there are homeless animals sitting on death row in shelters, any and all animal breeding is utterly irresponsible.

Now, here's where you come in. You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. You can either buy animals from puppy mills, petshops or breeders and be part of the problem. Or you can adopt from a shelter or rescue organisation and be part of the solution.

If I haven't convinced you, visit your local shelter to see the homeless animals. Let their innocent faces convince you that adopting is the only responsible choice to make.
