Transgender Fluid Althetics

Transgender Fluid Althetics

In the all-star cheer community, there are unwritten and unspoken rules. Rules that should already be known. Girls wear the skirts and sports bras and boys wear the T-shirts and basketball shorts. Yet, what do you do about transgenders in the cheer community? Boys that are transitioning to girls who want to wear the spandex and bras for practices and competitions or girls who want to transition to boys. I think all teams should be open to accepting the gender that they want to be not necessarily the gender they were born. Which is why I am petitioning that USASF creates a rule stating the transgender athletes can not be discriminated towards and be based only on their skill and their ability to add to the team.

Why is this important?

This is important because cheerleading gyms are supposed to feel like your second home. You should be comfortable in your own skin there and that won't be a possibility if people are making fun of, or teasing, or discriminating the athletes who just want to be who they are.
