Is ballet inherently sexist?

Should we agree with the choreographer George Balanchine (1904-83) that “ballet is woman”? Or do we qualify this, as the choreographer Pam Tanowitz (born in 1969) has recently done, by saying that ballet is a man’s idea of woman?

"There's a psychological undercurrent to the skepticism, too: If you tell lazy humans that we can just bring these animals back, will anybody work to save them in the first place? No. We'll eat them at twice the rate, grind their bodies into jet fuel so that we might run up a few more frequent-flier miles, and count on science to save us when they're gone."

I am so hopeful for a promising solution like this, but I do fear the average person simply won't care. People are, by and large, too self-absorbed.
