Apparently, Cheerleading Leads To Sexual Problems  
It seems a bill has passed the Texas House and is now going to it's Senate which will outlaw any cheerleading move deemed as sexually suggestive and provocative. According to the bill's sponsor, Rep. Al Edwards, D-Houston, this lewd cheerleading is enough of a cause of "more of our young girls being pregnant in middle and high schools, dropping out of school, having babies, and contracting AIDS and herpes" that it deserves to be legislated.

Um, yeah. Ooooooookay. Cause, you know, it had nothing to do with actual SEX, it's flipping girls in short skirts. That leads to herpes. And babies. And general foolishness.

Grow up. Frankly, I'm surprised a state so ingrained with things like high school football and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders would support this at all. Just one more example of fighting the symptoms instead fighting the disease. Wanna stop teen pregnancy/STDs? EDUCATION. Sorry to burst your conservative bubbles, but it WORKS. Trying to hide things doesn't stop them. For fuck's sakes, lewd cheerleading, now...whatever.

That is so sad. You're right, they're blaming completely the wrong thing.

Jesus Jones. This country needs a serious reality check.

Don't confuse them with the facts...their minds are already made up

*rolls eyes*

Well, it does seem like alot of the cheerleaders here are sluts. A few years ago, one of the schools in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex had like half their cheerleading squad end up pregnant! But I don't think this law is going to stop the fact that skanky ho's generally try out for the squad....

Yeah, there went all cheerleading, it can always be viewed as sexually suggestive, and provacative. Especially in the uniforms that they wear. Next wrestling in school as well, due to the fact there are 2 men rolling on a mat, in a singlet that is skin tight. What will they come up with next?

"You can't be on the squad if you have boobs. Don't want you spreading your nasty STDs, like cooties. We know you have those."

So I've been thinking about this, and trying to be objective. I don't know that I've succeeded, especially since I'm in a Manson Mood. (that would be Daddy Charlie, not Marilyn)

I hate cheerleaders. My daughter will never ever ever be given the choice to go to public school, and she is forbidden to take those fucking "cheer" dance classes. Because, when you tie that in to her other personality traits (fun-loving, thrill junkie, loves cars, loves boys, and already shows signs of having the dependant nature I do), I'm looking at a disaster. I don't honestly think I could ever prepare her adequately to fight her nature, and she'd end up being the bubbliest, blondest, bimbo on the squad. Besides, I think cheerleading looks trashy nowadays with their dance moves imitating a dog humping a leg. Plus I was always the gothy freak girl in high school that the cheerleaders constantly did malicious things to (think Heathers, only the roles were reversed).

So yeah, I think cheerleaders are whores in training. But sticking your lawmaking nose in it is nothing more than expressing that old Victorian standby: shove it in the closet so it grows unchecked. You know the only reason those old flaccid dicks are trying to pass the law is because they get terribly turned on watching 16yo Molly thrust her barely-covered bush and boobs around to primal beating music, and they can't reconcile their biology with their morals. Personally, I think that if we are going to make silly laws, we should outlaw football completely. It destroys bodies and brains (ok so we're looking at Darwinism in effect see my next point), and all the money spent on the stupid fucking "sport" could be used to haul a couple asteroids into orbit, mine them out, and turn them into floating old folks' homes where we send old fucked up football players and cheerleaders to fuck each other dry in zero g...and if one happens to escape and spiral into the sun, aw dang. Now THAT would be a law. And we'd still have money left over to go to Mars. A few times.
