Must not comment on women's bodies

A high school in Wisconsin, America, will no longer give out awards to cheerleaders based on physical attributes, including recognition for having the largest backside and biggest breasts, district officials said.

An annual cheerleading banquet held for at least the past five years at Tremper High School in Kenosha doled out awards ranging from “most improved” to “hardest worker”, with at least 100 of the girls’ relatives, friends and members of the Kenosha Unified School District (KUSD) in attendance.

But according to a year-long investigation by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), other gag awards at the banquets that were “meant to be funny”, according to the school’s principal, included the “Big Booty Judy” award for having the largest buttocks and a “Big Boobie” citation for the cheerleader with the biggest breasts.

Another accolade called the “String Bean Award” was also given to the skinniest cheerleader, according to a letter sent on Wednesday to district officials demanding that the cheerleading coaches be disciplined and that “robust, mandatory anti-harassment” training be required for all district employees.

“We urge KUSD to release written guidelines prohibiting school officials from commenting on students’ physical appearances or making other remarks about their bodies or sexuality,” according to the letter, which adds that the ACLU will continue to explore all legal remedies if the steps are not taken.
