    I'm glad the girls are speaking their minds. It looks like they found a solution to the problem. The last sentence of the article is just sad.

    Good for these young ladies.

    Many of todays cheerleaders dress like hookers.

    And have cheer routines that only lack a stripper pole. :doubt:

    About time they put their foot down....sad that it is the girls themselves that say enough is enough. Where are the parents? Where are the school officials?

    Maybe it would be nice if they stopped using women as coathangers.

    This hyper-sexualization of high school girls is bad enough, but it also goes on with girls in grammar school. I agree with bodecea....the parents of such kids must be out of their fucking minds.

    Hmmm...half shirts and hot pants? Yes, I'd have been furious as a parent. This is also Connecticut. How will those uniforms play in the weather later in the season? Good for the District for coming up with a solution, but WTF were they thinking in the first place?

    Applause for those girls. :clap2:

    Go to any mall and you will see 12 and 13 year old girls who's parents let them dress like hookers.

    Then sociologists and psychologists say they can't figure out why teen pregnancy is epidemic.

    And 1 in 4 teens has an STD :cuckoo:

    Not just 12 and 13 year olds. When my kids were still in daycare, there were 2 girls there (one was 4, the other either 4 or 5) who would show up wearing what looked like bikini tops and get this, high heeled sandals. To run on the playground in a daycare! The place finally had to institute a formal dress code.

    I think they don't have a case. Clearly, their self esteem IS intact. That is why they can stand up to this foolishness. What they should be fighting for, is to be a classy sex object, because that is exactly what a cheerleader is. At most sports activities you cannot hear the cheerleaders. You only see them and they wear revealing outfits even when its not practical. Seems like the real question here is, how much skin is okay. Personally, my kids played sports instead of being a popualrity-seeking sex object.
