A person who cheers for

A) Another sport, such as basketball or football

B) Themselves

This is commonly confused with a slut or a whore.

I'm going to clarify.

CHEERLEADERS. ARE. ATHELETES. We work hard and don't just run around wearing bootyshorts and being hyper. We work hard. We're not what the stereotype says. Get. It. Straight.

Most cheerleaders are also extremely flexible, so they can do scorpions/aerobesques/heel stretches/toetouches/pikes/herkies. They also should be strong for stunting.
Woah, the cheerleaders just ran five miles at practice!

A cheerleader is a person who has decided to take up cheerleading. Being a cheerleader doesn't make a person any less smart, talented or anything. Not all of them are vapid, slutty, preppy, stupid, shallow, spoiled or snobby. Do you know cheerleaders that are? Then it's just THEM, not necessarily every other one!
I myself am not a cheerleader and I am not close friends with any. But they are still people, pigeonholed people who still do what they do despite all the people who ridicule and look down on them. Ironically, those people, the cheerleader haters, are being snobby. Isn't that a bitch?

One of the most stereotyped and misjudged sports that requires the athleticism of gymnastics and the strength of football players, along with intelligence to memorize numerous routines while keeping a smile on one's face.

Dancers who have gone retarded, and have therefor decided to scream at people, suck the football players dry and amount to nothing.
Look at those cheerleaders. Skanks.

Someone, male or female, who decides to join a cheerleading squad and makes it on the team. Being a cheerleader has nothing to do with one's snobiness or who they sleep around with. Also, contrary to popular belief, not all cheerleaders are airheads. I'm a cheerleader and I'm going to Harvard on academic scholarship.
McKenzie and Rachel are cheerleaders for MTSU.
