1. K&R. I can certainly get behind the sentiment.

Bullies should be identified, and socially shunned. The behavior should be as acceptable as smoking indoors or drinking and driving.

FYI, since I added a note I expect the usual list of invisibles to get involved. Kindly ignore them. Shun them. Don't react to them.

In my experience some of the nastiest guys are the ones getting the most females.

Yeah, there's plenty of trash talking by dweeby looking guys like in the picture but the men who really have the least respect for women are those who have a string of them and they rarely look like that picture.

Told to me by one very good looking "lady killer" type guy I worked with, he rarely remembered the names of the cowgirls he woke up with on Saturday morning. He made crude comments about every woman he saw, total disrespect.

A pretty face don't mean no pretty heart, it works with both sexes.

42. You've never heard it from me

Every single one of the guys I've known that got a lot of sex from many different women were total narcissists, they may flatter the women initially and play the sweetheart role but they actually despise women and trash them constantly in many ways, think of them as meat there for the taking.

The football team members that were raping the women in Steubenville and then trashing them while laughing about it weren't dorky guys that weren't getting any, they were popular athletes with girlfriends.

that trash talking about a woman makes them men. And always in my experience, the trash talkers and misogynists are the most awkward with women, confused and afraid of them, and end up having the worst relationships and lonely lives. Doesn't matter if the man is rich or poor, handsome or no, if he doesn't know how to treat women, there is a gaping hole in his life.

I wish they could see this woman smile as she thanks all the kind commenters and then tell me she is ugly.

35. I didn't think the Packers had cheerleaders anymore,

but that's obviously beside the point. I admire this young woman for standing up to the bullies. God damn, if it's one thing I hate, it's bullies.

On another note, doesn't the very fact teams use cheerleaders promote the objectification of women and judgment of them based on appearance? There are 6 NFL teams (including, I thought, the Packers) who do not have cheerleaders. They all have successful franchises, in terms of loyal fan bases, and four of them have perennially good win-loss records as well as some Super Bowl victories (Bears, Packers, Giants, Steelers). Obviously, a team doesn't need cheerleaders to be popular or to win games. I watched a lot of football while my daughters were growing up (and still do), and they both wanted to be cheerleaders when they were little, probably because, in part, they watched football with me and saw the cheerleaders on tv. My reaction was to encourage them to be an athlete on the field rather than the person cheering for them on the sideline.

I should emphasize this is not an attempt to denigrate the cheerleader in this case. Not at all. I'm just trying to look "higher up the food chain" at the people putting women like her in this position in the first place, even though, yes, I agree she chose this profession and shouldn't have to take any shit for having made that choice.

Out of the 32 in the league, only seven NFL teams lack a cheerleading squad. These teams are New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, and Cleveland Browns.

- The Pittsburgh Steelers
- The Chicago Bears
- The Cleveland Browns
- The New York Giants
- The Detroit Lions
- The Green Bay Packers

we the fans come to watch football, not dancing girls in skimpy outfits. These cities are the industrial belt of America, Manhattan aside, NY is still in it.

We love our teams and cherishing tradition, try to maintain our roots.

Green Bay will bring in cheerleaders from local and state colleges. They do not look like the Dallas cheerleaders.

We like the real thing in our teams.

44. Isn't Wikipedia great? No offense meant, but you made me curious.

Several Green Bay Packers cheerleading squads have performed in Green Bay Packers' history. The Packers became one of the first professional football teams to have a cheerleading squad, having first used cheerleaders in 1931. The squad performed for 57 years under three separate names. In 1988, it was decided that the team would cease having a professional squad cheer for them. As of 2007, the team uses collegiate squads in a limited role to cheer during home games.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Bay_Packers_cheerleaders

She could have been a college cheerleader at Packers' games. She looks too young to have been a cheerleader in 1988. But that is just my guess.

I'm glad she is speaking up.

57. The cheerleaders were brought back by the team to address the many

people who want to be a part of the game, the team, and the atmosphere.

These are local college students (both men and women dressed in Packer warm-up wear and carrying green and gold pom poms)--They do it because they want to and not for pay.

The team is why children ride their bikes to the practice field, hoping that players will chose theirs to ride:



It's why we come out in droves to shovel seats in the stadium after snowstorms. Because we love this team.



Here's an adorable video of Donald Driver giving back to a fan:

I'm fascinated by this technique so many videos use these days of putting their message on cards and flashing them one by one. Why not just speak your piece rather than the cards?

I'm trying to figure out if its MORE insightful written out like this, or distracting? Maybe both (if that's not too weird.

Anyway the message is great.

54. Those I've seen tend to come from young women...

who are being cyber-bullied. Perhaps their experience is so painful, it's difficult to speak of without breaking down in tears. Writing their thoughts down and then presenting them to the world is probably quite therapeutic, and guarantees there will be nothing left unsaid.

I remember in my youth, putting on paper my thoughts and feelings. Don't know if I would have published them on the internet had it existed at the time, but understand those who take advantage of it today as a means to defend themselves. I'm glad to see her efforts to remove the photo have worked. Now I'm off to the YouTube page to tell her how beautiful she is, inside and out.

By the way, when I first looked at this young woman's picture, I thought to myself, what a beautiful, poised young woman. When I read that she was a cheerleader, I was not surprised.

Good luck to her in life. May she find happiness and a thick skin.

People can be very cruel even when they aren't trying. A thick skin is a wonderful gift.

46. Oh, come on, she wasn't being bullied

 

She's an adult who made the decision to become something of a public figure by being a Packers' cheerleader. Surely she understands those comments are only because they're from a rival team's fans - she obviously isn't ugly. Pictures of rival fans are posted and made fun of as well. This frivilous kind of complaining cheapens genuine claims of bullying.

She needs to grow a little thicker skin.

48. Notice to Cheerleaders, Pole Dancers, Strippers, and Hooters Waitresses:

Whether you realize it or not,
you have been chosen for your occupation based on one major criteria,
your physical sexual appeal.

If you choose to strip down to the minimum level acceptable by law,
and dance before crowds of drunken men,
some of them are going to notice, and comment on this aspect of your physical appearance.

Unfortunately, a commercial spectacle where over sized men, pumped up on steroids,
try to kill each other with their bare hands while their owners charge exorbitant amounts of money from spectators who consider this the pinnacle of their week
does NOT attract America's Best & Brightest.

Those who then seek out the company of like minded on the internet for companionship until the NEXT weekend spectacle will further refine the population.
Much like Panning for Gold requires multiple washings to remove layers of contaminants, the people (men & women) who spend their time on Internet Sites dedicated to their favorite Sports teams are the Pure Refined Product.
Any contaminants of Respect, Manners, Compassion, Humanity, or Civilization
will have been washed away.

Pleased don't act shocked or insulted by what you find at the bottom of this pan.

53. and the excuse for the men that are nasty to a 15 yr old girl talking about a book she read?

or a woman with a blog on the net, or a woman giving a lecture to an audience, or hell.... a secretary of state. that they dare not be attractive enough for men. or they dare to show their unattractive face to the world.

i guess we can always find excuses for some of our mens behavior by blaming the woman.

58. Its not an excuse.

It IS stating a condition of our World Reality.
I personally feel that that a is a very sad condition, and wish things on our planet were more humane.
I try to ensure that MY household is.
I don't tolerate that kind of behavior in MY home,
and am distressed that our little home at DU has been over run with it.

I also wish that chimpanzees wouldn't throw feces,
but if you get too close to their cage, guess what happens.
Those who don't approve of getting splashed with poo shouldn't
get that close to the cages,
and parents should warn their children that Chimpanzees fling Poo.

I DO feel that boorish behavior at sporting events is not NEAR the problem that killing innocent children with drones is,
and tend to prioritize THAT on my list of problems that need to be addressed.

60. except children ARE dying. granted, at their own hands. but, dying none the less.

thank you for clarifying further. i appreciate it.

the point i was making is, it could be hooters, strippers or cheerleaders. but, in todays world of cyberbullying it is all over for no better reason than just being ugly.

but, thank you for your post. we keep it out of our home, also.

78. I did not read this earlier in my haste to respond to the poster.

Very well said...

There are a million reasons to blame for people's boorish behavior... and not many people willing to agree that sometimes bad behavior is just...well...bad and uncalled for--especially in light of the fact that she was completely covered (this is Lambeau Field for gosh sakes) and a local college girl.

55. Just a note. This was not her occupation... she was a college kid.

The Packers welcome cheerleaders (who cheer out of love for the team and not financial compensation) from local colleges in WI. Most cheerleaders are in sweats (shiny sweats albeit) on game day at Lambeau Field with a pair of golden pom poms.

So...ummm... yeah.

For the record, here's the picture of this beautiful kid, "bared" for all to see:
