Clearly, your stay in our country has not improved your writing, Starla. Perhaps you should spend less time practising your cameltoe jumps and more time mastering English?

THIS IS THE CRAZIEST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD. I HAVE BEEN A CHEER COACH AND A GYM OWNER FOR MANY YEARS. LET SOMEONE SPEAK TO ME OR MY COACHING STAFF ABOUT OUR ATHLETES BEING A SLUT. YOU JUST MIGHT GET MORE THAN YOU BARGAIN FOR!! YOUR SITE IS FUCKING AWFUL!
Needless to add, 'Jamie' is an AOL user. Presumably one with a broken caps lock key on his keyboard.

Your article about Cheerleaders was racist and stupid. You're basically implying that all white cheerleaders are sluts, when really I'm sure you don't know your information. There are in fact many white cheerleaders with real talent and morals, not to mention the fact that the best of the best cheerleaders come from Texas, and it's the damn cheerleading capitol. Also, just to let you know, there are plenty of slutty black and Mexican cheerleaders. They're all over, get over it.
The author, Don Pitts replies: Everything you say is absolutely correct. Throughout
most of high school my girlfriend was a slutty Mexican cheerleader. I'm also a native Texan, football player; you get my drift? What you may have missed is that this was a satirical article lampooning the idea that there must be laws passed to tone down cheerleading routines. That's a job for parents, school officials and students. The Texas legislature has far more pressing problems. I love cheerleaders. Not too crazy about idiot legislators
