No Shaking of the Booty!

Lawmaker Seeks to End Sexy Cheerleading


Quote:
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Friday night lights in Texas could soon be without bumpin' and grindin' cheerleaders. Legislation filed by Rep. Al Edwards would put an end to "sexually suggestive" performances at athletic events and other extracurricular competitions.

"It's just too sexually oriented, you know, the way they're shaking their behinds and going on, breaking it down," said Edwards, a 26-year veteran of the Texas House. "And then we say to them, 'don't get involved in sex unless it's marriage or love, it's dangerous out there' and yet the teachers and directors are helping them go through those kind of gyrations."

This may lead to people wearing their pants too low. Texas does not want to become another Virginia!

I agree. Put all those tempting gals in burkas! While they're at it, take all women's drivers' licenses away. We'll get to recalling their voting rights later...

it does surprise me how much Texas and Saudi Arabia have in common ... vast open spaces, intense heat, oil, attitudes towards dancin' that we haven't seen expressed in a public forum since "Footloose."

Careful, Irvine, before someone accuses you of spewing Michael Moore rhetoric on Texas-Saudi Royal Family links!

These cheerleaders should by whipped with a Bible belt on their booties.

That would really fill the stadium.

As if George W. shouldn't come to the defence of these fine entertainers being attacked. Given his cheerleading background, he can surely empathize with the uncontrollable urge to sexually gyrate to help get a crowd into a throbbing frenzy.

That was before he found Jay-sus.


He's not gonna talk about his shameful youth.


He said he won't kick gays
because he was a sinner, too.

Hey, Jesus was the biggest cheerleader. He pumped everyone up (still is doing it), gave hope and breathed life into an otherwise humdrum existence. Isn't that what these fine ladies are doing?

...

I really think some adults forget what it was like to be a teen. Do those people mean to tell me that when they were teens, there weren't girls doing somewhat suggestive moves on the field?

Also, I wasn't aware sexy dancing automatically led to having sex with just anyone, or outside of marriage (which I personally actually don't see as bad, nor anyone else's business). I'd like to see where the connection is with that.

I like looking at cheerleaders as much as any guy would, but here area few of my thoughts:

--This is a waste of time. It always suprises me how lawmakers seem to have so much time on their hands. This is my number 1 issue with this. If things are that bad in some districts, it should be the Texas State High School Leagues (or whatever it's called there) job to set up appropriate guidelines for cheering.

--That said, I do see the issue here. Cheerleaders are supposed to get the crowd going, not coming if you catch my drift. Public school isn't the place to learn how to become a stripper. As I remind my students all the time; "there is a time and a place for everything." Some things are appropriate for school functions and some things aren't, simple as that.

--It's pretty unfair to post only the first 2 paragraphs of that article-- there are some pretty good points made later one:

"J.M. Farias, owner of Austin Cheer Factory, said cheerleading aficionados would welcome the law. Cheering competitions, he said, penalize for suggestive movements or any vulgarity.

"Any coaches that are good won't put that in their routines," he said. And, most girls cheering on Friday nights were trained by professionals who know better, he said.

Let's all keep in mine that what's sexy or even too sexy is subjective. Slow dancing with a foot between each other is too much for some people. Cheerleading in general is too sexy for some people...

How do you legislate such a subjective idea? And why waste your time? If you think it's too much then don't do the routine, talk to the coach, talk to your daughter etc.

We don't need a f**king law about it.

I have to wonder about these sex obsessed lawmakers sometimes.
