  • I've never heard of that practce and FYI some cheerleaders are male, so to say its sexist when both sexes can be cheerleaders doesn't sound right.

  • That is old school. Cheerleaders don't do that anymore. Where do you live? It sounds like Texas Cheerleader.

  • I'd say it's sexist if the football players never do anything in return. Do the football players ever do anything nice (like bake) for the cheerleaders after the game?

  • If it's the cheerleaders job to just look pretty and serve the boys without getting anything in return, yes I think it's sexist.
