  1. Kate says:

    I had to ask my daughter what twerking was.

  2. Cora says:

    I actually did have a twerking discussion with my Mom. It went something like this:

    Me: “A lot of Americans are outraged at Miley Cyrus’ dancing not just because of the sexual content, but also because twerking is a dance usually associated with black women, which makes Miley Cyrus’ twerking cultural appropriation.”

    My Mom: “I saw her dancing on TV. She looked sluttish and skanky…”

    Me: “Well, that’s the sexualization angle, but…”

    My Mom: “…so of course it’s racist to insinuate that all black women dance like sluts.”

    Me: “Ahem, never mind.”
