Tango in the media :: Again

I just ran across this. www.TangoMag.com "Tango - Smart Talk about Love"

I don't like it. I just don't like it. These people using the word Tango. Capitalizing on the word Tango. Capitalizing on the dance Tango. Capitalizing on our Tango. Capitalizing as in making dinero off of it.

Especially when it's tabloid shit like this:

What is the world coming to? What is the west coming to? What is the U.S. coming to?

Oh, I don't know...offering a positive and intelligent viewpoint on open relationships seems an outstanding idea in my unbiased view...and emphasizing safety in regards to anal sex is certainly valuable. That is to say: as mainstream sex-oriented women-focused magazines go, this is a lot less damaging than, say, Cosmo.

But yeah--I freaking hate the co-opting of the name of our dance. It's so reductive. Distracting. Disappointing. Frustrating. And, like, lame.
