  • Cheerleading is promiscuity and indecency defined.

    There is NO need whatsoever for young women in tight, criminally short outfits to kick, spread their legs and otherwise contort themselves in that manner.

    The 'cheerleading' that I have seen is a CLOSE relative of the kinds of 'dancing' one would see if they frequented a 'gentlemens' club' (a strip club).

    There is no reason to get involved in it, the viewing of it is harmful to chastity and thus to souls. It is associated with 'music' (so-called) and 'dance' (again, allegedly) that is base in nature, not founded on classical music or dance forms but rather the gyrations of heathenish tribespeople, and it has NEVER been necessary for the promotion of excellence in sports. Simply learning the facts of your favorite sport, learning to support your home team and favorite player(s) and even taking time to learn a game yourself is time and effort infinitely better spent.

    Of course, the BEST 'sport' is walking, running or otherwise exercising while praying the Rosary or other devotions or listening to or reading Scripture or suitable traditional teachings or homilies.

    O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
    This evil of heresy spreads itself. The doctrines of godliness are overturned; the rules of the Church are in confusion; the ambition of the unprincipled seizes upon places of authority; and the chief seat [the Papacy] is now openly proposed as a rewar

  • That pretty much sums it up.

  • Yes the pep rallies at our Catholic high school had cheerleaders in short skirts "dancing" to "hip hop" music in short skirts with their posteriors directed to the audience.

  • Actually cheerleaders are not that bad at novus ordo/public high schools compared to "dance teams" that perform at halftime at basketball and football games. The clothing is even more revealing, the music even more offensive, and the dancing even more suggestive.

    Another thing that bothers me is this whole concept of "homecoming" dances and prom dances. Its really pushing kids to impurity and its outrageous how are whole society just embraces it.

  • curiouscatholic, another "tru dat" to your post.

    I never went to prom or homecoming, even before my conversion, and praise be God I was somehow spared from all the sexual and drunken debauchery that existed in my school.


    Praise be Jesus, blessed be Mary. All praise and honor is due to Thee, oh Almighty God.

    It was already noticed in the 40s how bad the dances to the contemporary music were.  But as time has gone on the music has become more conducive to immorality, and the "prom" ritual has become associated with binge drinking and fornication.

    Yes, it is sick how so-called Catholic schools embrace this culture.

  • I mean technically speaking, I guess the prom could be done in an acceptable fashion if the dancing and clothing was 100% modest, and the event was heavily supervised. Kind of like a "ball" in the 1600s

  • Cheerleading just leads to more immodesty. The cheers they do are usually rather suggestive, not to mention that probably around 90% of cheerleaders are dressed in trashy outfits.

  • Guilty.  I was on the drill (dance) team too.   :facepalm:

    We had teachers who would give detention  to girls who did the "parochi-roll" (rolling the waistband) to shorten their plaid skirts, but Friday game day we could wear way shorter cheer uniforms. Consistent much?  They ended up allowing dress slacks later anyway.

    I didn't think school dances were too awful, but the dresses have gotten much worse in the past 5 years. Fewer long gowns and more cocktail dresses or something that looked like you fell on a weedwacker.

  • As I said in another post, I live in a place where the immodesty is greater than anywhere else I have seen. It is extremely bad elsewhere; but here it is really a cut above. And I verified this when my friend Alex from this site recently came out here to visit me, so feel free to chime in if you're still around, Alex!

    I took a look at pictures of the high school. The cheerleaders are wearing skirts that are really like native leaf skirts, where there are many gaps in the fabric, so you can see right up the sides of their butts.

    I compared to some other high schools in other areas, which were more like how I remember, short skirts, but not THIS sexualized. Something else that is particular about this area, is that all the cheerleaders looked incredibly toned and fit. At other high schools, there were some imperfect girls, so it looked more fun and innocent, not that I'm saying it is. But here it's like you have to resemble a Sports Illustrated model to be on the cheerleading team.

    There was one picture I shouldn't have clicked on, but I just wanted to see how far it could go. I thought "No, this can't really be happening." But it was. It was so bad, that I can't even think of a way to describe it prudently. I am talking even beyond all the usual bumping and grinding.

    These pictures were on the high school's Facebook page, where any parent could go and take a look. That none of them have a problem with what I saw, apparently, proves to me that people will be prostituting their daughters like in Russia within five years, to help them pay off their underwater mortgages and maintain their lifestyles. It is really that bad now. The scale of the immodesty has exponentially increased just in the last year or so. It is now at the point like in those science-fiction novels where it feels like any day now people will just start fornicating in the streets. Truly, it is a wonder to behold, a wonder of evil.

  • While we are on this topic -- and it is related -- I have also recently learned that it has become commonplace for high school girls to have bikini car washes. The source for this new activity is apparently a cheerleading film called Bring It On, where the girls have a bikini car wash to fund their team. It has now spread like wildfire and people are actually doing it. What is worse, Protestant churches allegedly are participating in this.

    Mothers are encouraging their daughters to partake of this fun-filled and all-American pastime. The girls get in bikinis and go stand out on the street with signs, to encourage men to stop by for a wash ( does that sound like they are engaged in a certain very ancient profession? ) They have the uglier girls lugging water and doing menial tasks, while the girls with good bodies are put in bikinis; and the moms are the ones who are organizing everything.

    Go ahead, eat at Chick-Fil-A, lol. This society is NOT going to last.

    I think of it as very American.
