    what do you think?
    It's heartwarming but if I had a kid who couldn't do it because she was fat and sucked, I don't think I'd be owed recourse.

    Girl with Down syndrome made honorary cheerleader after school reverses decision

    (Fox 5 Atlanta)

    After practicing with the cheerleading squad all summer, Grace Key was ready to get on the field and support her high school. But the Georgia girl, who has Down syndrome, wasn’t allowed on the squad, her family claimed.

    Supporters created a Change.org petition, “Let Grace Cheer” that gained over 5,390 supporters, News Channel 9 reported.

    “People with Down syndrome have feelings, and yesterday Grace’s feelings were hurt,” the petition read. “If you know how Grace was treated wrong like I do, please speak up to your school officials.”

    This week, Calhoun High School allowed Grace to join the cheerleading team as an honorary member. She’ll be able to participate in pre-game activities and be on the field when the band and football team enter.

    Key is a member of the swim team, has been in school plays and is involved with other school clubs, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. She’s expected to be on the sidelines for Friday night’s game.

    It's gotta be hard for the parents. I mean what else are they supposed to do? Nobody wants to give birth to an abomination.

    I was a cheerleader. The first yr I did it, they let everyone in. The last two, we got better and it became competitive. You had to audition and make the squad. Obviously a girl with challenges like that wouldn't meet the reqs. But in the grand scheme of things, who cares? Make her happy I say.

    I was referring to things like flips, jumps, dancing and ability to learn routines. But maybe I'm not being fair to her. Maybe she's totally capable of all that?

    It's fucking cheerleading. Leading a crowd of morons to cheer for a fucking high school sports team. Get over yourselves.

    according to the article, she learned all the routines, and the video shows her doing them, just outside the fence, which I can't understand, someone should have warned her mother.
