Basketball’s Sexual Baggage

Record #:
The perception of college cheerleaders tends to focus on female sexuality rather than athleticism. While cheerleaders at Duke University and North Carolina State University maintain the feminine uniforms, they are highly talented athletes who go through intense training programs. Male cheerleaders are also discriminated against, and Duke no longer allows them to participate in the sport.
