It is a crime to expose cheerleaders to this kind of danger.
Another brilliant expose on the pitfalls of cheerleading. This actually got me more angry than the conspiracy episode they did. We're talking about our most valuable resources; children. And not just children, but young girls heading into womanhood. How can a society let the abuse that these vivacious and good spirited young females take place?
The injuries, and the defacto corporate monopolistic juggernaut that is "Varsity" controlling the entire cheer-leading industry, the personal tolls on families, and the whole corruption of not only corporate cheerleading America, but also the inanity of feminism trying to dip their uncomely claws into a sport from which they were probably rejected, is just ludicrous beyond belief.
Being a guy, I admit it. I had many a crush on many a cheerleader, and, in fact, fell deeply in love with one, but if I had known that she was exposed to the sort of dangers put in this episode, I would have gone ballistic.
I cannot believe these girls continue to expose themselves to the dangers of being tossed high in the air, or doing multiple flips with a callous female "coach" to tell them to get up. To that woman in particular, you could get away with that with any boy over age five. But a young girl? That's just barbaric.
Again, very enlightening. And again, it's Penn and Teller doing a Showtime cable show, so you know there's going to be swearing and nudity, BUT, if you're a parent, and your young girl is expressing an interest in cheerleading, please do yourself a favor and watch this show first before deciding whether or not to let her try out.
