No more booty

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas lawmakers sent a message to the state's high school cheerleaders on Wednesday: no more booty-shaking at the game.

The state's House of Representatives voted 85-55 to approve a bill that would forbid sexy cheers and give the Texas Education Agency authority to punish schools that allow "overtly sexually suggestive" routines at football games and other events. The proposal must go to the Texas Senate for consideration.


My Point exactly: "I think the Texas Education Agency has enough to do making sure our kids are better educated, and we are wasting our time with 'one two three four, we can't shake it any more?'" Democratic state Rep. Senfronia Thompson told legislators.

I can't believe this legislation is going to pass. Completely a waste of time.
