WTF? He did not say that and if this was a court too, that would be slander. Show me a direct quote where he called anyone worthless. And if you define worth based on sex appeal then that's sad.

He said a women's midlife crisis lasts a lot longer than a man's midlife crisis. Although it's not usually called a "midlife crisis" with woman.

You can call ageism all you want but he actually made a video for every single age group: Babies, children, teenagers, young adults, middle aged people and old people. And he called ALL OF US idiots. And explained why.

Review TOS. You'll either get back on topic or I'll put you on ignore. The youtube post is self evident for review.

Unless you plan on hanging around the Chicago and Chicago Suburbs forums, I honestly don't care if you put me on your ignore list.

Although I personally think the very existence of an ignore list is kinda stupid. Ignoring someone on Facebook or a chatroom is one thing. But this is a forum and I like to be aware of what's going on. What if someone on your ignore list says something that triggers three pages of responses and you're just sitting there reading it, not knowing what the hell everyone is talking about?

Good for her!
WTH is an elementary school doing with a cheerleading team or teams to cheer for that matter?

It is elementary school! It's fifth graders and sixth grade children!

What are they doing spending once cent on this sort of garbage? For the future spend the tight money on reading, writing and arithmetic. The whole story is insane.

The school doesn't pay money for it--the girls parent's do. I can't say for certain how this one is organized, but in a huge number of small Midwestern towns, junior cheer camps and programs are organized by the High School cheerleaders as a fundraiser--lots of smaller schools can't afford to pay for the HS cheerleading uniforms anymore (they're very pricey), so the girls have to raise as much money as they can. Our school told our cheerleaders that they would pay for one advisor, and that's the extent of their budget--they have to pay for the rest. The older girls and their advisor run these camps-- almost all the little girls in the lower grades want to participate--and the little girls get to perform at half time at a few HS football games. The camps usually have routines for girls (and some boys) K-6. It's a big deal in small town America--EVERYONE shows up to see the little girls perform at a game because they're so cute. Usually it's innocent and fun. I don't think the booty cheer is obscene, but I think it's in very bad taste, and inappropriate for the preadolescent girls.

Because it helps sell beer.

What's the target audience for an 11 year old girl shaking her ass?
That would be the segment of the population that doesn't necessarily actually have children but shows up at public events where they are present. With their cameras.

Our high schools offer these "camps", too, but they are usually just a week or so in length. The real 'culprits' so to speak, are the private cheerleading schools that abound.
