"Our backs ache, our skirts are too tight, we shake our booties from left to right!"
A mom in Detroit was shocked to hear this coming out of her 6-year-old daughter's mouth - it was a cheer she'd been taught to chant on her cheerleading squad.
The mom did just what I would have done if TG had been expected to chant this when she was a middle school cheerleader: she went to the coach... the general manager... other parents.
Other parents were upset, but I guess none of them had the guts to speak up like this mom did. Because of her complaints, the daughter was kicked off the squad.
Is it just me and this mom that think something is very, very wrong with a 6-year-old chanting something so suggestive? Call me a prude, but I don't even think this is appropriate for high school cheerleaders. What the heck does it have to do with football, anyway? What happened to cheers like "Push 'em back, push 'em back, wayyyyy back!"?
What happened to childhood? What happened to innocence?
