I think the main issue is that no one wants to stare at his ugly ass all day, big drating deal. give the people what they want, who gives a poo about the retard? back in the day we used to toss babies off cliffs that had defects. i say we go back to doing that.

drat everyone who thinks this kid should be a cheerleader.

Clearly hes not 'cheerleader' material. NO ONE WANTS TO STARE AT HIS UGLY MUG ALL DAY. face the facts!

thats life.

People are ridiculous. You have to try out and actually be GOOD to cheerlead. Now, if he had done that and they refused, maybe he'd have something to sue for. The problem is he is a mentally-handicapped individual who, though obviously high-functioning, can not do what is needed to be a cheerleader. I don't think it has as much to do with his race or orientation. I do feel sorry for him, but every kid can't expect to be able to do whatever they want because they're "special." Some people are just better at things than others. That's life.

He can't even drating cheer....wtf?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
he just stands there and claps! He is on the damn team so how in the hell are they discriminating? He needs to sit his ass down somewhere and find something he's actually good at.

If you read other articles and commentary to this, this article really is half-assed.

First of all, he has Asperger's. For those who don't know what it is- look it up on wiki. It is technically a mental handicap because it alters a life of a person that isn't considered "normal" and disrupts aspects of life "normal" people have.
However, he is cognitively functional and capable.

He was allowed to cheer, he missed practice with Winter Break and wasn't allowed to participate in the game. Yes, that's his mother's fault. PLENTY of parents don't pull their kid out of school to go on vacation.

As far as the school thinking Shakira shouldn't be shaking his hips- we don't know the full story. My guess is that he was wearing loose pants and it was obvious that, without wearing a cup or whatever, he stood out. And chances are, with AS, he was a repeat offender of failing to maintain good appearance.

If he CAN do things, yes, let him. If he cannot do them, that's f

Yeah, you're a shining example of how loving society is, vindictive.

"This is about a young gay man with mental issues who was not allowed to participate in an activity based SOLELY on things outside of his control."

it's out of my control that i don't have the capacity to understand molecular physics, should i still be allowed to teach it? by your standards, i should. cut the touchy-feely no child left behind bullcrap. like someone said earlier, mother nature would have destroyed this kid if society wasn't so loving.

and this is what happens when you drink while you're pregnant. As for them allowing him on the team, they have the right to refuse him. There are high school cheerleading competitions, and those in turn can and DO turn into grants for college. So in allowing someone sub-par to be on the team just because we're such pussies and we don't wanna hurt feelings, you can and are hurting the rest of the team's chances of a higher education.

I think this is just another "minority" screaming discrimination because they didn't get what they want.

I've seen it all too often. If minorities want to be treated equally then they shouldn't call discrimination when they aren't allowed to do something.

The next thing you know, the entire cheerleading squad will be comprised of "mentally challenged biracial male cheerleaders" and the hot chicks will end up in the parking lot turning tricks...actually I like where this is headed...

The kid is going to have a tough life. While cheerleading isn't going to help with that, it brings him pleasure.

@Shisi I would disagree with you saying he needs to grow some balls. Despite how different he is, he is doing what he wants. We all know what kind of environment the public school system is.

I agree with moefreak because my real opinion is close enough to hers and I'm too lazy to write it out.

I have no problem with this. Cheerleading is as much about how you look as it is about what you're doing. At some point the mom has to stop being less protective. I'm sorry the kid is so messed up (by today's standards of normal), but that's just the way it is. She can't change the whole world so that he can cheer like the girls.

I totally agree that IF this were a job and these were adults THEN the employers would be completely entitled to not allow him to join the cheerleaders, or to dictate what his role in the team would be. HOWEVER, this is a high school, and he is a student. He should be allowed on the cheerleading team, as long as he can do it well enough (even if not outstandingly). It's just high school cheerleading, people, let the kid have his fun.

Also, I have to agree that No Child Left Behind is the most ridiculous crap one of our dumb presidents created. My school is using tons of money to educate students who don't need it and will never use it. I WILL. So, No Child Left Behind is retarded, no pun intended.

Personally, I think the kid needs to grow some testiculars and stop playing with Barbies.

Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being a whateverthedratheis. He should just stop being such a little vag about it.

LOL. That sucks for him, really, really, bad. And I don't have any experience around mentally challenged people, but do they even know about sex and what it means to be gay? I didn't think so, but apparently they do. Well, good luck to him.

JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE BLACK AND GAY AND RETARDED IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU AUTOMATICALLY BECOME A CHEERLEADER IN FACT THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE SO STOP SAYING OTHERWISE

Not that he'll ever read this, but I had to get that out.

Should we feel sorry for him and let him have his way because he's Gay? Retarded? Biracial? Etc? He shouldn't be treated any different than the rest of the students. If the school has a policy that forbids Males from waving Pom Poms then guess what kid, you don't get to wave em. Buck up and move on, be glad society has sympathy because mother nature does not and had your fate been left to Darwin, you wouldn't have made the cut.
