Cheerleading Debate

Ok, I need your input on this one.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS CHEER:
"OUR BACKS ACHE, OUR SKIRTS ARE TOO TIGHT, WE SHAKE OUR BOOTIES FROM LEFT TO RIGHT."
Ok, that might sound like standard cheerleader stuff.
But what if your little pom-pom girl is 6-years old...would you want her talking tight skirts and booty shaking?
A mom in Michigan said ‘Nope, not appropriate,” and complained to the Detroit media about it.
The cheerleading folks got mad at the mom for taking it public, and kicked the little girl off the team.
Mom also says she tried to solve the matter internally, but no one was listening, and that’s why she went public.
So, the little girl gets the boot. The cheer stays.

Let us know your thoughts and Kyra may read some of your comments on the 10am hour of CNN Newsroom.
