Catty Female Blogger Calls Cheerleader ‘Chunky’, The World Turns On Her
There is no doubt about it. Women are way more judgmental when it comes to other women, than men are. It's hard to deny it, and with this latest instance, it's just downright ugly.
Claire Crawford is a blogger for CBS in Houston, and she might be sorry for one of her more recent columns. In the column, Crawford was writing about the playoff game between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder. At first it was all about basketball, but quickly it just turned to a mean girl style burn book, and OKC cheerleader Kelsey Williams was caught in the middle.
In the blog (now removed, but we were able to track down a copy) for some reason Crawford decides to make Williams a focal point and ask the question, is she too pudgy to be a cheerleader? The answer is an obvious NO, and we can't even believe that the question was even asked.
...not every man likes women to be toothpick skinny. In fact, I’d say most men prefer a little extra meat on her bones. Am I right? What do you think? Is this chick “too chunky” to be a cheerleader?

Crawford even included a poll asking if the girl should 'tone up'. What? That's just mean. Working with Melissa everyday, I know how hard these cheerleaders work, and to take focus away from a sub-par basketball team to focus on this is just bad journalism.
Girls in this day and age don't need any more pressure when it comes to appearance. This blogger owes Williams an apology.
