You're well rid of this "sport", my dear. Try football.

This team is really doing its best to live up to the popular image of cheerleaders as vain, cold-hearted airheads by voting this girl off the team rather than re-evaluating the wisdom of teaching six year old girls to call attention to their own rear ends. Just another reason why I hate to see little girls uselessly dolled up on the sidelines instead of playing out on the field (or court, diamond, et cetera).

  1. Note that it was the PARENTS of the other cheerleaders who "unanimously" voted to have the child removed from the squad. So, basically, they all approved of retaining a cheer that exploited and sexualized their own daughters. The parents concerned for the virtue of their child were vilified. It's difficult not to think society is going to hell in a handbasket... with pom-poms.
