Do you think females should break?

I think that girls should break as well because its something everybody can do ,and learn.The guys from this group called Hmong thought females shouldn’t break because they might hurt them selfs while dancing.They thought the girls would look unattractive break dancng ,but they were wrong. The girls became enen more attractive to them.This guy from Mn,said:

Sure, I think Hmong girls should be able to break dance, because in the United States everyone has the rights to do whatever they want and desire. Women have the right just like men. They can split and do all sorts of body dance. Break dancing is like an arts of creation and body work.. go girl, go girl.. break it for me. -guy in Mn
The guy is right about that everyone has the right to do what they want.
