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.

A hard working young female, who usually has some background in gymnastics, who participates in a sport to throw other girls in the air (or gets thrown and does numerous tricks that need total balance). The young females also try to keep school spirit up. Usually have a bad tendency to fall into the stereotype, unfortunately. Not all the girls are like that and most do very well.

Not everyone is jealous of a cheerleader...in fact most poke fun at cheerleaders out of sheer principle.

When most girls are really young it is a sport that most want to participate in. (I said most not all and that's where I came from they had a poll that stated 78% secretly wanted to be a cheerleader before the age of 8).

Cheerleaders are strong mentally and physically because of all the animosity among classmates and due to the vigourous work in practice. A cheerleader is a tough person mainly on herself/himself. Being judged by peers on game days and at competitions does that.

Very bubbly and can seem "dumb" to outsiders. Tend to have a lot of inside jokes and are mostly very talkative and loud.

Are also known as spirit squads or clubs.
Did you just see that? She is standing on one foot and leaning over without falling (aerobesque) *not quite sure if thats how its spelt*

OMG...she never shuts up she must be a cheerleader.

Okay, so my friend sent me like a link to the cheerleading definition and I think it's totally wrong. I'm a cheerleader and i'm not stupid at all. I actually try hard in school and I plan on going to FIT. Just because I have blonde hair, school spirit, cute friends, and an amazing boyfriend doesn't mean that i'm an airhead. Just because my parents have money doesn't mean that i'm a spoiled person. They worked hard for it and they choose to treat me because I deserve it. &; Lastly, are you people serious? I think that maybe before you all be so judgemental you should at least have evidence or something to back your claims, bub. k? thanks :)
Just because she's a cheerleader, doesn't mean she's an idiot or a slut.

Slutty bitches who crave attention. It's said they couldn't be able to live without it, however this theory has never been proven due to the fact they get mass amounts of attention anyway for carrying the shallow, clone-like personalities they've acquired over the years. Why does this get them attention? Because it's a pretty big deal when the quarterback's condoms all breaks and half the team gets pregnant. They're generally stupid and aren't able to think for themselves. They swallow anything right up that's mainstream or what someone tells them they should like. They look at other non-cheerleaders as far below them and, when joining a cheer squad, generally stop being friends with those who have not crossed over to the evils of cheerleading. Because they are the superior race, they believe only in wearing extremely bright colors, and, when going out on a limb in wearing a darker color, risk the rejection of their fellow cheerclones.

They cheer for the sport because they aren't able to actually play for the sport. They claim it takes great athletic ability and muscle, cordination, and hard work to cheer. Sadly, this is not in the slightest bit accurate. Most cheerleaders are fat and ugly, craving the acceptance of other human beings. The ones that aren't fat and fugly only cheer because they think they're far hotter than they actually are and would like to show it off by wearing a "uniform" where everyone gets to see their panties.

However what makes me laugh the most at these pathetic life forms, is that they claim none of this is true.
