Sexually Suggestive Cheering Safe In Texas...For Now

Earlier this month, there was much interest in a proposed law down in Texas that would forbid "sexually suggestive" cheerleading routines on high school cheerleading squads. The bill did not define "sexually suggestive" cheers. However, the bill's author, State Representative Al Edwards, (Dem. Houston) had this to say:
"People are calling and telling me how disgusting it is to see sexually suggestive routines on the part of marching units or cheerleaders,"
In an update sure to please hormone-charged young males throughout Texas, we've learned that the proposed legislation is expected to die in the State Senate's Education Committee.

Maybe now Texas lawmakers will find the time to take a look at this appalling situation.
