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.

Stereotypical Cheerleader: A girl who is a big biatch and will lament over how they're not popular anymore or about their moms finding out about their "affairs."

Normal Cheerleader: I just happen to like cheerleading and I am a cheerleader.
Girl: I hate you because youre a cheerleader.

Response 1: Stereotypical Cheerleader:

"Well I'm more popular than you so I don't care about what you think of me! Right girls? Let's leave." *turns nose up*

Response 2: Normal Cheerleader:

"That shouldn't mean anything to you. Obviously you don't value differences, do you?"

Someone who leads other people to cheer. Simple as that.

Cheerleaders aren't always "slutty blondes". Lots of us have morals, and are trying to erase bad sterotypes various media channels give us. Some are even expected to be role models and can't swear or show any form of PDA while in uniform. We're required to have a grade average of B- or more in school, or else we're ineligible.

Granted there are some people who fit the stereotype of "Rich, skinny, bitchy blonde that cakes on makeup" but in reality we're so much more than that. Not all cheerleaders are skinny, some have to be bigger in size while stunting. I mean, you try twisting girls up in the air that are 100+ while keeping them balanced. Not as easy as it sounds (that goes for you too Mr. Superjock)

Cheerleaders are also very diverse and come from different ethnicities. Have you ever seen a Bring it On Movie (the third one had a good mix. Caucasian, African-American, and Asian-American)

Some cheerleaders can't wear makeup up or glitter either. We're athletes, not a beauty pageant.

Mike: Oh, here comes Elizah..
Elizah: Hey, James. want to come over to my house tonight, I heard your dick is huge.

James: Um, no thanks, not interested.
Elizah: Douche, what about you?
Mike: I'd rather not fuck a slut.


James: Hey, look it's Jessica.
Jessica: Hey guys, are you going to the pep rally today?
Mike: Sure, what time?
Jessica: 2:45. Goooo Panthers!

Mike: Aw, she's the cutest little cheerleader.

James: And she isn't bitchy like Elizah is.
Mike: Totally, she's so sweet and bubbly. Hey, is she single?

A person who takes part in cheerleading, either competitive or non-competitive, for example at National Championships or supporting a sports team.

Does not imply a person of specific gender, race, age, appearance, intelligence, attitude, sexual moral or personality.
They support the local hockey players by being a cheerleader for their team.
