Whiners in Short Skirts
“If we're allowed to wear it at games, you should be able to wear in school and pep rallies and stuff,” said varsity cheerleader Lindsay Bellaw.The cheerleaders, et al, are just being whiny butt, cry babies.
The cheerleaders gained the support of some parents and classmates, who said officials should make an exception to the uniforms.
“I think it's ridiculous they're not allowed to wear them, because it’s like school spirit and they should be allowed to wear them,” said student Emily Campbell.
I asked my son if the cheerleaders were allowed to wear their uniforms in school. No. They have warm-ups they wear on game days.
Monroe school officials came up with the same solution. I'm glad they didn't cave in.
So instead, the district came up with a compromise. The school will give the cheerleaders special T-shirts to wear to school this year to show their spirit.But, jees, what a bunch of whiners. At least it wasn't the swim team.
Next year, the school will buy policy-appropriate uniforms for the cheerleaders.
IF there is a dress code that doesn't allow the skirts at school, then they shouldn't be allowed period. Or perhaps the dresscode is too much to start with. Looking at some of the minis my mom wore to high school in the early '60's even a cheerleader uni is pretty tame.
What is the actual message being sent?
