Good reason to go watch a "game"

On a more serious note:
In Denmark this is a job for the director of the school/college not a
job for the politicians and easily settled

Cat Feet / Buttered Toast Theorum

When a cat is dropped it always lands on its feet.
When buttered toast is dropped it always lands with
the buttered side facing down. If a piece of buttered
toast was attached to the back of a cat, when dropped,
the cat/buttered toast combination should hover, spinning
just above the ground, as it tries unsuccessfully to
resolve the inevitable conflict of non-scientific
certainties.
This in itself might be fun to watch but there is
a serious point to be made here... What if giant
arrangements of buttered toast cats were linked
(probably by their tails) to banks of generators?
Perhaps enough electricity could be produced to
help resolve the growing world energy crisis.

Imho is even worse (the bill) where is the school, the teachers and the
parents?

Maybe the rules is different in US and Denmark (they probably are)

But afaik the sports etc is sponsored by the school? Facilities,
coaches etc, right?
The school should be able to stop it buy setting some basic rules
If broken and things goes too far, no play

Is it a personal freedom thing? And the school is not able to stop it?

Yeah I read that in our local paper yesterday morning. The guy that got
that bill into the Senate IS a goody two shoes and a bleating sheep
:(  But, what he's targeting is SCHOOL kids, not adult performers.
Might want to keep that in mind. This bill isn't all bad.

Right, the professional cheerleaders don't do the stuff (it's for TV,
right?) that the high school and college kids do. They do get kinda
raunchy at times.

Not the ones this bill is 'covering'. This is actually aimed at what
high schools are doing because it DOES involve 'underaged' persons.
Genarally, here, that is through 12th grade, where kids graduate at age
18 for the most part. I dont think the situation really calls for
legislation, but some level of morals applied. Methinks this is a
social issue, not legal. This manner of legislating on such an issue is
really a means of "passing the buck". It's a matter of personal
irresponsibility reflecting on parents and faculties. Something like
this should never have come before our Senate, it's an embarrassment on
OUR whole society. This is just my humble opinion folks.

Right on all parts there Peter. I spoke to this in a barely previous
post in this thread. I can see that it is clearly lack of values,
morals and involvment of parents. There is a major lack of appropriate
boundaries. Where did the knowledge of these "moral boundaries" go?
What happened to them? Some parents condone these literally lewd and
overtly sexual displays. They think they're "cute" and that there is
nothing serious wrong there at all. I have three daughters and one son.
My SON is the only one of my kids that was a "cheerleader"! SOME
schools do set stricter guidelines for these activities. Some of those
are broader in what they allow than others. It is still a social
problem. That this social matter comes before the legislative body of
our government at all should set off some internal alarm bells in most
of us. Some of our parents don't even realize what things their kids
ARE doing. Some do and even condone it. A large portion,
unfortunately, don't really seem to care. They don't want to be
responsible. And they want to deny or minimize or even justify what the
*schools* 'allow'. Somehow, our lives contain too much "Me" and not
nearly enough "Our", which is what Family is.
Well, that's me on and off the soapbox Peter. :)  I'm glad there are
some people somewhere that are concerned about it. Kids MUST have some
boundaries in place and enforced. Isn't that the parents job?

What's ridiculous is that, as far as I remember (actually probably still
holds true for me today ;-) ), high school cheerleaders in tight
sweaters and short skirts with pom poms doing kicks and bouncing up and
down climbing into a pyramid, were about as suggestive as a male teen
could handle. Putting on some kind of lewd and lascivious pole dancing
routine, seems silly and pathetic.

Ah - see - it'd be quite disturbing if it was a bunch of 15-16 year olds
doing that sort of thing, it'd be just not on. But if they're pretty
much all 18 and up, I'm all for it!

18 and up is college level. Over here, public schools really *ARE*
public schools and that's where the general populace sends their kids.
They're required to attend until they graduate or reach adulthood.

Yes. I think you're confusing us with England. In Ireland:

Primary School 5 - 12
Secondary School 12 - 18 (You can leave at 16 if you like)
College 18+

And everyone goes to a Secondary school and theres no more than a
handful of private schools, mostly for religious reasons although there
are 3-4 extremely expensive boarding schools too. Everyone goes through
the secondary school system except them, and its free. As is college.

So, hot gyrating college cheerleaders are something I would be
completely in favour of :)

Here, 1-6 is grammar or grade school, 7-9 is middle school, 10-12 is
high school and everyone goes through these whether public (free) or
private (pay, mostly religious reason), then College which is all pay,
one way or another. Oh, those are grades not ages :)  which loosely are
6-12, 13-15, 16-18 then College 18+ but can "self emancipate" at 17 and
check self out of school by law.
And hot gyrating college cheerleaders are what the high school kids
'wannabe'. But it's not so great having that in high school.
Puberty/adolescence is punctuated with more than enough difficulties
without deliberately adding THAT to it! ;)

And the fact that some of those 14-15 year old girls can pass for a hot
25 when they get fixed up can definitely cause problems for unwary guys
over 18. Or over 36, for that matter. ;-)
