A person, That is male or female. Cheerleaders usually lead on in chants for sports teams if they are recreational or cheer for their school. Some other cheer squads are competitive only, in which is a combination of chants, gymnastics and dance. Although most teams where a shell (cheerleading shirt) and a skirt above the knee, some teams have reverted into using spandex shorts for competitions. There is a constant confusion on whether or not this activity should be considered a sport.

1. you can't be stupid if your a cheerleader, everyone seems to think so. but if you fail classes you'll get kicked off.
2. you usually have to be fairly strong, they have to lift people over their heads when stunting.
3. you usually have to be flexible, id like half the people who are saying bad things about cheerleaders try to be one for a day, they'd fail, lets see them do the splits.
4. they arnt all blonde, im a cheerleader and i have brown hair?
5. they arnt all preppy, i have girls on my squad that arnt preppy outside of cheerleading practice and games.
6. they have to have balance. half they girls get thrown up in the air, again.. id like to see some of the people who are saying bad things do that.

oh and last. you dont have to be pretty or skinny, its not like its a rule or something.
the cheerleaders were in the assembly today.

Young girls. With the exception of the rare flamer, these girls believe they are athletes. It is argued often, but truth is, they are certainly not.
Competition cheerleading is such a joke, do those slutty cheerleaders truly believe they are athletes?

Wow. I swear, I have never met a group of such naive and prejeduced people before. All you believe are stereotypes! Here is the real definition of a cheerleader:

A person who simply enjoys cheering. I myself am not a cheerleader, but I know several girls who are, and none of them sleep around, nor are any of them bratty or spoiled. They like to cheer, just like people like to write, draw, or swim. Just because you don't cheer doesn't mean you should bash it. Everyone on here claims to be so open minded, but none of them hesitate to slap a label such as 'slut' 'prep' 'richgirl' or otherwise onto people who are human beings JUST LIKE THEM.
As for it not being a sport, I believe that it deserves to be called one. You have to be extremely flexible and spend hours each day practicing and stretching to do the flips, pyramids, and formations that cheerleaders do. When you can do a backhand spring, back flip, and hold up a girl that weighs as much as you do, all the while smiling, then you are free to call it what you want.
So please, before you bash these people and their hobby, think for a minute...are you really acting any better than what you are calling them?
I went to the basketball game to watch Alice play and her sister, Brittany, cheer. I thought they were both good, and they were both sore but happy afterwards.

A cheerleader can be viewed as a sterotypical WHORE... but on the on the other hand.. not all cheerleaders are whores... Cheerleading is a sport and takes alot of time and hard work to achive great goals. A Cheerleader is a girl or guy who was given a job to rise the spirit of the crowd. Which most students choose to do on their own. But a cheerleader is a person who is more put together for the job. A cheerleader can be a person seen as a bitch or a person who spends most of her time working to achive her goals .. height in jumps, smiles, loud voices, being able to left PEOPLE over their head, remembering counts, pointing toes, well ok so most of the time just looking better than YOU :)
she is so loud she must be a cheerleader!!!

Stereotyped as a preppy, dumb, blonde slut who show alot of skin.
Let's get this straight: Cheerleaders are not dumb. I am a cheerleader and in fact have a GPA of 3.6 and if you have lower than a B- you're dropped from the squad. you have to work hard. 2nd, our team consists of every race and only 2 blondes. We all come from diffent backgrounds and were all different. We're also not sluts. (okay so there are 2, but they were sluts before they became cheerleaders) and by the way, its pretty hard to jump in the air and do flips and kicks in baggy pants without hurting outselves. and finally, being preppy... the point of cheerleaders is to cheer on their team with spirit.
"we're gonna win!"
"Yeah! Go team!"

"we're gonna win!"
"Yeah. whatever."

Girls that can't play sports so they yell at games and annot those who can play sports. Can be spotted because their skirts go up their asses.
Those cheerleaders are so skanky and sluty, I want to kill them all!

cheerleaders are... blah. sluts? yes. i think so. they need to get a life, stop being conceited, and have their mothers stay out of their damn business. cheerleaders are like dancers, just robots.
girl #1: not all cheerleaders are mean, rude, conceited, stuck up, and whores.
girl #2: yeah well have you been to my school?
girl #1: no..
girl #2: didn't think so.
