Texas Legislature Combats Sexy Cheerleading

In a move designed to crackdown on an apparent epidemic of "sexy cheerleading," the Texas House of Representatives has passed a bill mandating that cheerleaders and other performers "may not perform in a manner that is overtly sexually suggestive."

Demonstrating an impressive knowledge of pop-culture
State Rep. Rene Oliveira, D-Brownsville, said one person's lewd act is another's legitimate artistic expression. Calling the bill a "monstrosity," he warned that the TEA would have to set up a "Cheer-ocracy" to figure out what sexually suggestive means.
I nominate Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku for the job. Get the classic quote in the expanded post. (more in expanded post)

Torrance Shipman: Courtney, this is not a democracy, it's a cheerocracy. I'm sorry, but I'm overruling you.
Courtney: You are being a cheer-tator Torrance and a pain in my ass!
