and also at my school we were not the typical stereotype. we were certainly not "the most popular" people. we did it for the athletic perks, and were state champs. I hate that cheerleaders have such bad reps, but there are those out there that make the stereotype.. unfortunate

After I quit cheerleading because the other girls were really mean, I couldn't believe I was a cheerleader after seeing the dances at the pep assemblies. It was horrible

I had the stupid idea that it would not only help me overcome my shyness, but I thought being a cheerleader would help me be popular. No such luck

He's a great example of the cheerleader. Dumb, manipulated and a tool.

School mattered more to me and I can't do all the flips anyways. If I had a choice I'd rather be danceline than cheerleader. And I would maybe date one if he was smart n mature with a good personality but not too many guys r cheerleaders or fit that description.

I dated a cheerleader, took one to prom even, nothing special about them, except that they spend more time looking good then they do studying.

In my experience the stereotypes about cheerleaders were mostly true. I would watch them be absolutely terrible to other girls around them, and very few of them seemed to put much stock in learning over looks. Many got by by cheating. It was really sad.

Haters make me famous! FTY I'm blonde and wear glasses. Kind of a clash in your stereotypes, huh?

Oh, my mom was in college too. My dad was on the football team. Ended up being valedictorian in law school, while raising 2 kids, and is the smartest person I know. She's a freaking genius... I kid you not.

Unlike back in the day, it's just 16 year old girls flouncing around in skirts that barely cover their asses and in tops that show off their stomachs.

Funny story how I just read this after coming back from my nationals cheerleading competition!

Although I am not a cheerleader and never have been one (and never will be one) they do a lot more than flounce around in little skirts with Pom poms cheering. They can do many things and are way more athletic than you would think. Te competitions they go to are amazing and take a lot of talent.

So please Next time keep your extremely rude, ignorant, insulating comments to yourself f@#% you

@music47 I am a cheerleader and do you have ANY idea how hard it is? NO! I hate the stereotype that all cheerleaders are dumb and bullies! (I get all A's and B's FYI) you probably think blonds are dumb, girls with glasses are nerdy, all rich people are snobs and a bunch of other UNTRUE stereotypes!
02/11/12 9:38 pm
Ew no. Like I'd even be caught dead in that short skirt and flimsy top. Speaking of flimsy, what football player hasn't dated the cheerleader captain? I'm a freshman, and wish cheerleaders were never thought of, because all they do is gymnastics in the almost nude. How original. GO MATHLETICS!!!!!!!

Never a cheerleader! The cheerleaders at my HS were a lot like the ones in the movies... They supported the old stereotype! Lol at least, 4 outward appearances. I was a band geek 4 a bit, & an art nerd 4 a while! Top of my class in grades & worked hard for it! And not w/o a date either ;) <3

@malekithe- and women don't lie about being cheerleaders?! Come on! Everyone can lie- & who can check here?

I originally said no, but my partner just told me otherwise. Apparently she was homecoming queen too, which makes me feel extra cool.

401k, thanks for sticking up for us. I was an honor society member, in AP classes & graduated in the top 5% of my HS. I find it annoying when people stereotype cheerleaders as dumb.
