Suggestive Cheerleading

By  | 

If some Texas lawmakers have their way, "overtly sexually suggestive" cheerleading will be banned.

The Texas House has approved a bill that would give the state education commissioner authority to request that school districts review high school performances.

State Representative Al Edwards -- who sponsored the legislation -- contends that bawdy performances are a distraction for students resulting in pregnancies, dropouts and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

Banned performances are not defined in the bill, which now heads to the Senate.
