  • not justified and i agree with the parents.... there are too many pervs in this world... these girls do not need to be learning that it is ok to flaunt their bodies and think it is ok...

  • This is one reason I'm not a big fan of cheer leading nowadays. If the cheer really was referring to their backs aching from cheering so long, and the skirt being too tight to stay in it that long comfortably, why couldn't there have been less suggestive terms used? And instead of booty, why not pom poms or something? I totally agree with the mother on this.

  • I think that this is a horrible situation. This is not a cheer that any child should be learning, but especially not at six years old. If they didn't mean this then they should have said things different. This is a very sexually suggestive cheer. I agree with the Mother one thousand percent on this.
