Texas Democrat Al Edwards — and you can tell he’s a Democrat because he’s proposing something embarrassing and the article at ABC discussing it doesn’t mention his party affiliation — wants to ban sexy cheerleaders:
“The Friday night lights in Texas could soon be without bumpin’ and grindin’ cheerleaders. Legislation filed by Rep. Al Edwards would put an end to “sexually suggestive” performances at athletic events and other extracurricular competitions.
“It’s just too sexually oriented, you know, the way they’re shaking their behinds and going on, breaking it down,” said Edwards, a 26-year veteran of the Texas House. “And then we say to them, ‘don’t get involved in sex unless it’s marriage or love, it’s dangerous out there’ and yet the teachers and directors are helping them go through those kind of gyrations.”
Under Edwards’ bill, if a school district knowingly permits such a performance, funds from the state would be reduced in an amount to be determined by the education commissioner.”
Now I know what many of you are thinking right now:
“Hawkins, you should side with the crusty Democrat — who probably reminds most people of the reverend in Footloose who wanted to ban dancing — as he tries to use the power of government to determine routines high school cheerleaders are allowed to do.”
But, no, I’m going to be gutsy, I’m going to be bold, and I’m going to stick up for the attractive young ladies who are doing their best to entertain football fans. If attractive women “shaking their behinds” is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
Who will stand up for the cheerleaders against pushy, prudish, puritanical Democrats like Al Edwards? I will, that’s right — I will!
Now, who’s with me?
*** Update #1 ***: RailGunner nails it in the comment section:
“While I don’t think it’s right for underage girls to be sexually suggestive in cheerleader routines, I sure as hell don’t want the government involved.
Besides, isn’t preventing their daughters from acting like sluts the job of the PARENTS?”
Bingo! Why should the government be getting involved in something like this? It’s ludicrous.
Besides — who knows what Al Edwards considers to be “sexually suggestive?” Apparently, whatever these kids are doing isn’t disturbing their teachers, parents, or fellow students — so how much of a problem is this anyway?
