“Why Aren’t NFL Cheerleaders Protesting During the National Anthem?” reads the headline on an NBC News site.
I laugh because that’s the stupidest question I’ve ever seen. It cancels itself out before it finishes being asked.
Because they are part of the problem!
No society that isn’t fundamentally sexist would even have cheerleaders. They are part of the system.
If it weren’t sexist: there would be whole squads of male cheerleaders. But where’s the men’s team that cheers me on during childbirth? How about a bunch of men doing hip-grinding, pelvis-oriented dances to get women through their periods? And I sure as fuck could use some male cheerleaders to get me through menopause. Where is my high- kicking, ass-waggling, pom pom-bearing man squad?
I’ve never meet a feminist cheerleader in my life.
Oh look at those big strong men. Look at me, sexy, barely clothed woman, waggling my boobs and butt and eating lettuce all day so the men can look at me and be glad they have a penis. Football wouldn’t be complete without slapping an objectified woman on top of it to make it sexy on top of simply being brutally competitive.
There are no NFL cheerleaders protesting for their rights because they know they don’t have any. They exist to please and excite the men for money and that’s it. It’s an athletic form of prostitution; a stadium size strip-club.
That is not to say they aren’t intelligent and talented, but they are willing to prostitute themselves to a stupid, narrow-minded, racist, sexist patriarchal system. Being a cheerleader is the same thing as white women voting for Trump.
Now you want to ask the question again? It’s like asking why Trump voters aren’t taking a knee. My other answer to that is they aren’t taking a knee because they’re too busy bending over.
Cheerleaders are the Condaleeza Rice of feminism: the Kellyanne Conway of women’s rights. There is no knee, except to kneel before patriarchy and take its hallowed member into one’s mouth.
Yes, I was a cheerleader, so shut up. And when I saw what was really going on, I quit and joined the basketball team. The women’s basketball team. If cheerleaders want society to change, they all need to quit their jobs and do something useful, something that empowers women instead of entrenching sexism and its incestuous cousin, racism, even further.
Otherwise let’s all just learn to enjoy our Pussy Grabbing Society and cheer it on!
LET’S GO PATRIARCHY!!!!!
