The cheer goes: "Our backs ache, our skirts are too tight, we shake our booties from left to right."
Way to go mom, that cheer is so....outdated!
What a loss of opportunity to critique here, and instead focus on all the wrong things. First of all, there are those, including myself, who would rather the girls be playing soccer and basketball, rather than cheering on the boys, but others consider cheer a demanding sport akin to gymnastics, so fine.
I have a bigger problem with the sexualization of "skirts too tight" for 6 year olds. Beautifully skewered in "Little Miss Sunshine" and to a lesser degree with Sparkle Motion in "Donnie Darko," dancing children in adult costumes and makeup (and in this cheer commenting on it), is squickier than the use of the word "booty." I'm assuming that their skirts aren't too tight because they can't afford new ones? Just a wild guess.
So I'm not sure what this mom had in mind when she and her daughter signed up for cheer in the first place, but yes, shaking booties from left to right is precisely what they do. So how is that "outdated?" I think the more compelling argument is to make sure the cheers are more age appropriate go-team-go than "skirts too tight."
Finally, what's with the league kicking out a 6 year old because mom complained? That's sportsmanship, innit?
