Supporting the Ripon High School Cheerleaders
Almost lost in the midst Hillary being labeled a “bitch” and whether or not Barack properly poses during the National Anthem was this major headline on Fox:
I immediately had flashbacks to my high school days. Now, our cheerleaders fit the stereotypes to a T. Not terribly bright, and the least temptation and their clothes fell off. So, needless to say, I had pre-conceptions of what had happened here. I mean, what does EVERYONE think when they are “flashed”? So, needless to say, I clicked. What I found there was just a scintillating:
So, I did.
I wasn’t flashed.
This is so incredibly lame I had to blog about it.
Six girls were suspended from school for bearing the bottoms of their uniforms. Not THEIR bottoms, but the bottoms of their uniforms. Not lacy panties. Their uniforms. There is nothing risque here folks. There certainly isn’t any flashing.
I was incredibly disappointed.
But, beyond that, I have to wonder what the Ripon High School BoE is thinking by suspending these girls for showing a part of their uniform that is visible every single time they do a cartwheel or flip?
How many lawyers are there in Ripon? I can imagine six are chomping at the bit right now.
But, it just strikes me that Leo Zuber of the Ripon BoE is setting yet another horrific example for his kids. It’s no wonder so many kids come out of high school completely clueless to what’s important and what’s not.
What’s the drop-out rate at Ripon? What’s the college graduate rate for Ripon High students? How many former Ripon students are in jails? Worry about that stuff Zuber. Teach them what’s important. Picking on students that are socially active and meeting the responsibilities it takes to be on the cheerleader squad is sending the wrong message. Especially to those kids that won’t graduate, won’t go to college, and will wind up in jail. It tells them that you can try hard and be punished, or not try at all and not be.
Think about that Leo.
And someone PLEASE give the definition of “flashing” to Fox.
