<p>Knew that would get your attention:D</p>
<p>I gotta rant, sorry</p>
<p>Last night at my son's back to school night (he's a soph) the evening began with a 1/2 hour "pep rally" which was supposed to showcase some of the students talents, such as a debater "spreading" (very impressive), the school band (also awesome), a preppy stuedent exhorting us as parents to get our students involved, and the usual parade of school administrators, along with a slick movie about how wonderful the school is.</p>
<p>OK, all good,
then the cheerleaders "perform"...they were all very cute, of course, short skirts and tightfitting uniforms, but not too low cut...so I was unprepared for what followed:
the dance or whatever it was, to me, was beyond risque..they looked more like stripper's moves or something, complete with shaking their boobs around in a very obvious manner, while gyrating to the chorus from "promiscuous girl" the latest hit from Nelly Furtado, which was cleverly cut into the music ...
it was uncomfortable, to say the least, I mean I felt sorry for them parading around in front of the whole gym full of parents who were all wondering wt*? It was like a bad joke, with these poor girls as victims, IMHO...but hey, am I being an old fuddy-duddy or what?
no, don't answer that....but actually my kids and their friends think I'm one of the cooler parents...so I don't think so</p>
