When will Rogue Productions proudly present a "SEXY MAGIC SHOW" with an all-male lineup?
Even shorter version:
"Sexy" to whom?
(A) Was the goal to assemble a "Sexy Magic Show"? If so, its scope seemingly does not look beyond women. To limit "sexy" to women blatantly panders to the perspective of half the population, and ignores that of the other. Where are the sexy male magicians in this Sexy Magic Show?
(B) Is the goal to assemble a show of women magicians? Yet by adding the extra label of "Sexy Magic," the women magicians who qualify to work the show then become limited to those (a) perceived as and/or (b) willing to frame themselves as sex objects for an (implied) audience of men.
(C) This one may be the most important: When does this venue hire women magicians outside of this sex-object framing (whether in the show title or the performer's description)? From the website, here's the list of performers at all the other shows from Sept 9 - Oct 29, nearly two months worth of shows. Of these, how many are women? Any at all? Also note that these performers are routinely described in terms of their magical abilities, mastery and status, not their appearance.
