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.

Negative Character Associations (which may or may not be true)- Uppity, Snobby, Bully, Conceited, stupid.

Positive Character Associations (which may or may not be true)- Cheerful, Uplifting, Preppy, Energetic, silly.

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?

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?"

A sport that most boys aren't tough enough to handle. It's HARD lifting people in the air, and no, its not just four feet. When those people fall on you it HURTS. In competitive cheer leading, in round 3, doing a 3 minute routine CONSTANTLY lifting these people in the air isnt easy, especially when you consider all of the different types of stunts there are. Round 2 is all gymnastics, so i dont know what some people are talking about when they say "cheerleading is jsut wanna-be gymnasts". I bet half the people reading this can't even do a cartwheel. yea, thats what i thought. and the fact that all we do is yell and prance around like a bunch of hoes? have you ever tried to yell, as loud as you can while lifting people in the air and doing back flips and stretching your body in ways it was never meant to go? didn't think so. and the coaches. OMG the coaches. if you think your coach is bad, you've never heard a cheer coach the day before a competition, and believe me, you don't want to. and if you think that we dont work as hard as the football team think again. one time i had to do OVER 1000 ab exercises....with out stopping. don't tell me cheerleading isn't a sport, because if you've never done it, you have NO IDEA what you're talking about.
Look at those awesome cheerleaders that are waaayyyyy better than the football team.

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.
