\"Occasionally, men belly dance too, but this is less common and may be Played for Laughs or Fan Disservice.\"

Can we get rid of this? This is sexist.

How is it sexist? Mind explaining further?

How authentically/purely bellydance does the dancing have to be to belong here? If they wear this sort of outfit and dance sexy, does it fit automatically?

Typically a good amount of the examples listed so far feature women whose dancing usually focus on shaking the hips. But to my knowledge, there are many more moves that can still fit under belly dance.

Which examples were you thinking of?

"If a character dresses like a belly dancer, but is not actually one, she is a Bedlah Babe."

If is true, so many examples here need to be moved.

Which ones do you have in mind? I can definitely see a few here and there that could be moved, but I don't think it's as many as you might see.

Nobody. Many example are "character dressed as belly dancer (and dancing sometimes) in this episode" than to be an actually dancer. But it is ok. The problem is Bedlah Babe that cause this confusion because is about similar belly dancer outfit instead to regard a sexy arabian charcater.

"Web Original Category"

I'm still trying to understand what could go under this section. Is it only limited to original stories posted on the Web?

"The Six Million Dollar Man"

Can anyone verify the name of the episode where the dancers might be from?
