No More Bare Midriffs!

  1. From the sydney morning herald
    Cheerleaders banned from baring midriffs

    Cheerleaders have been banned from baring their midriffs, with their governing body fearing it might be encouraging anorexia.

    Gymnastics Australia has given cheerleader troupes until the end of the year to find new uniforms, saying current revealing costumes make other teenagers feel uncomfortable about their weight.

    The move has angered cheerleading squads who believe the move is against the wishes of crowds who attend sporting events, News Limited papers report.

    National cheerleading program manager Nerine Cooper has defended the move saying the girls often appeared in front of a large number of families.

    "We don't want girls to feel under pressure to lose weight because of uniforms," she told News Limited.

    But the head of Sydney Promotional Dancers, Lisa Ince, said the cover-up was unfair.

    "It's ridiculous really, if the thinking is that a midriff is offensive, then every dance school and athletics club would face the same restrictions," Ms Ince said.

    The ban is already in place in the United States and will effect about 105 teams registered with Gymnastics Australia.

    In other news, groberts and vtrbob were found dead today. Upon reading the above article they aparently topped themselves :(
