Don't punish cheerleaders for fundraising for breast cancer research.

So far Gilbert High School out of Gilbert AZ Cheerleaders raised $470 for Breast Cancer Research by selling t-shirts that say "Gilbert cheer" on the front and "Feel for lumps, save your bumps" The school administration is not so pleased. They find the shirts offensive and ordered the cheerleaders to stop fundraising ASAP. The Cheerleaders want to continue fundraising and the girls planned to wear the shirt at Friday's football game and the next home football game as they cheered and then walk around to collect money from the crowd. However the Principal say that if the CHEERLEADERS CONTINUE TO FUNDRAISE THAT THERE WOULD BE "CONSEQUENCES" yet won't say what the Consequences were.

 

Because this is a woman's issue the school is in outrage. Similar awareness shirts that focus on the male sexuality such as the Choir's "I'll hit that" t-shirts and the sign-language club shirts that say  "I'm good with my hands." are continue to be sold. Because the shirts sold by the Cheerleaders are focusing on the health and well beings of women Gilbert High School chose to ban them. We want our high school of women bodies!

DON'T PUNISH THE CHEERLEADERS. LET THEM WEAR THE SHIRTS!
