shh shhh had me at 'overly sexual'


boingboing points to what started out as the greatest moment in texan cheerleading-related legislative history (and as a student of the field, believe me, the lineage is both long and distinguished), only to turn into the worst:

"Girls can get out and do all of these overly sexually performances [in cheerleading routines], and we applaud them...[ed: YES! FINALLY, we are in complete agreement on something!]...and that's not right," [ed: FUCK!] said Democratic Rep. Al Edwards, who filed the legislation. Edwards argued bawdy performances are a distraction for students resulting in pregnancies, dropouts and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Ribald performances are not defined in the bill. "Any adult that's been involved with sex in their lives, they know it when they see it," he said.

wait, since when have distraction, pregnancies, dropouts, and stds been bad things in texas? isn't herpes your state bird?

but seriously, maybe you got it all wrong democratic representative al edwards. just maybe...
