ACLU Up In Arms Over Texas Cheerleading Bill

High School cheerleaders are children. And they should act like children. In the quest to grow up faster than nature has intended, High School cheerleaders have gotten more and more suggestive in their routines. In an age of increased cases of pedophilia in the forefront of the MSM, a young lady who acts in such a manner can be seen as suggesting that she would be a willing participant for a sociopath who has a fetish for young girls. Texas law makers are being pro-active for reasons more for an argument of taste, and age appropriate material rather than protecting the young from monsters who prey upon children. But never-the-less, with crimes against children on a perceived increase, curtailing these routines is not only appropriate but responsible. How would the ACLU feel if one of these girls were the victim of someone like John Evander Couey? Asking that question is bordering on foolish because the ACLU is already fighting to protect the rights of a group called the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). No wonder they are so fiercely against this bill. Not to protect freedom of expression, but rather to pander to their ultra liberal, sociopathic clients. And to further degrade the family unit in hopes of gaining a foothold to put forward their Socialist agenda. The following is an article which appeared on MTV.com.
Texas Lawmakers Want To Mess With Sexy Cheerleading
House passes bill prohibiting raunchy routines at middle schools, high schools.
Lone Star State lawmakers seem to believe grinding on the gridiron is becoming a Texas-size problem. The state House of Representatives approved a bill on Tuesday that would ban sexually suggestive cheerleading at middle and high school athletic games and events.
"I feel very strongly that the inappropriate, sexy dance routines I've been seeing for a few years now are unacceptable," Representative Al Edwards (D-Houston), who drafted House Bill 1476, said Wednesday (May 4). "It's not conducive to good, healthy, moral cultural development."
Edwards said he's gotten calls from parents who are embarrassed to bring their young children to sporting events where cheerleaders will be present out of concern for what they'll be exposed to. "This has gone on so long that it seems like something we should just accept, but we don't have to accept it," he said. If the bill is made law, school dance, drill and cheerleading teams, in addition to other performance groups, will be prohibited from performing in a manner that is "overtly sexually suggestive" at a school-sponsored athletic or extracurricular event. Performances deemed questionable can be subject to review by the state education commissioner, and if judged inappropriate, the district can take action against the group and its sponsor. Civil-rights advocates say the measure is unnecessary since Texas law already prohibits public lewdness on or near a school campus. Will Harrell, director of the ACLU of Texas, told the AFP, "This broad, morally restrictive legislation reminds me of the Taliban. Why not go all the way [then and] require them all to wear a burka?" Karen Halterman, vice president of the National Cheerleaders Association, believes coaches and administrators already mandate what is appropriate. "Honestly, I think 98 percent of our schools represent their communities in a very appropriate manner," she said. "The focus of the NCA has been on development of the whole student athlete, and we believe the vast majority of teams represent their schools and communities with pride and decorum." Teams competing at NCA can face penalties if they don't follow strict safety guidelines that include directives on "age-appropriate" choreography. Halterman says one of her organization's main concerns is that cheerleading performances be family-focused, since their contests are televised to a national audience. "Cheerleading is a healthy, amazing, athletic activity, and that's what we want people to focus on and be proud of," Halterman said. The bill is expected to pass the Senate early next week and be handed to Republican Governor Rick Perry. Children often need protection from even themselves. In today's world, children are in such a rush to grow up, that they make rash decisions which are ultimately harmful to themselves. The recent legal manuvering in Florida surrounding a 13 year old girl who has gotten herself pregnant comes to mind. Now the state is going to allow her to get an abortion. I still feel that this is a mistake. She will learn that if it were to happen again, there is a quick fix available to her. Just make a simply make a trip to the Doctor and it's done. What are we allowing our children to turn into? Help Put A Stop To The Most Dangerous Organization In America. We are trying to organize a march on all of the ACLU state offices in all of the 50 states. To help in this matter, we are trying to raise money to pay for advertising in our nation's newspapers promoting the march. You can help. Visit Bulldoze The ACLU online store and buy a bumper sticker or t-shirt. All of the proceedes will be going into advertising for this march. Thank You.
