Thumbs down Girl, 6, Removed From Cheerleading Team After Parents Object to 'Booty' Cheer

I don't know what the world has come to when 6 year olds are being sexualized, a parent objects, so their little girl gets unanimously voted off the team.

FOXNews.com - Girl, 6, Removed From Cheerleading Team After Parents Object to 'Booty' Cheer

Quote:
A Michigan couple is crying unsportsmanlike conduct after their 6-year-old daughter was removed from a flag football cheerleading team because they complained that one of the team's chants was too risqué.

Jennifer and Duane Tesch, of Madison Heights, say their daughter, Kennedy, was unanimously voted off of the Madison Heights Wolverines flag football cheerleading team during a team meeting Tuesday night. The meeting was held to discuss concerns the Tesches voiced last month regarding one of the team's cheers:

"Our backs ache, our skirts are too tight, we shake our booties from left to right."

But instead of seeing their concerns with the cheer resolved, the Tesches saw their little girl booted from the team.

I have a "feeling" there's more to it...If the parents complained about this, chances are they've been a thorn in the tems' side for awhile and this instance (although I personally agree with it) is probbly "the last straw"...

NO TEAM OF SIX-YEAR-OLDS has enough sensabilities to sow hate on one team member because they all disagree with one action by the team members' parents...

From the article...

Quote:
"This meeting was supposed to be about keeping this cheer or not, and all of a sudden it turned into getting rid of us," he said.

He said the parent of another cheerleader suggested that Kennedy be removed from the team while the matter was being resolved, and another parent seconded the motion. Kennedy was then voted off the team, Tesch said.
How anyone would second the motion (let alone suggesting it) is beyond me...

Why would the parents even want their child on this team? I don't get it.
