A reader commented: I went to an all boys prep school and we had male cheerleaders. Perhaps Bacall should find a few pics appropriate to my former situation?
So in fairness, Bacall looked for some beefcake, but this is all she found.
You might be surprised to learn that at its inception in the mid-1800s cheerleading was an all-male sport. Characterized by gymnastics, stunts, and crowd leadership, cheerleading was considered equivalent in prestige to an American flagship of masculinity, football. Three presidents, two senators, a legendary TV producer, an iconic Hollywood leading man and Samuel L. Jackson -- these are just some of the most SURPRISING collegiate male cheerleaders.
She did find photo's of three male cheerleaders of note. Jimmy Stewart, RR and W. And you will really piss her off if you say anything negative about them.
