Guess what the “one thing” Miami Cheerleaders and management won’t ‘tolerate’ is?
It all started while on a road trip in 2015. On the bus, some of the other cheerleaders were talking about what songs they preferred to listen to while bumping uglies.
Kristan Ann Ware’s answer surprised them.
She explained to her teammates that she had no intention of having sex with anyone until she was married because of her religious beliefs.
The cheerleader felt like nothing was wrong with the conversation until she met with coaches during her end-of-the-year meeting in April 2016.
Radical answer? Nope.
Bold, maybe. But hardly radical. She has personal convictions and stuck by them. If it were a belief, say, to be Vegan, or never fire a gun, you can bet nobody would have said boo to her.
But the very idea that someone in their crowd might hold themselves to a higher moral standard — notice she didn’t finger-wag, she answered a direct question — was too much for somebody in that crowd to handle.
Grown woman that she was or not, she was ‘tattled on’ by one of the prissy girls who counldn’t cope with the idea that somebody sitting on the same bus as her wasn’t a floozy. Maybe it pricked a conscience or two? Who knows? It was a complaint made in secret; a complaint brought to HR.
So much for the #MeToo movement over in Miami. Look who they side with:
The coaches allegedly told her she needed to stop discussing her virginity around the team, but Ware claims she only brought it up when she was asked.
‘It was like a bus hit me,’ Ware told the Post. ‘I was completely speechless. All that formed on my face were tears.’
The meeting also included a moment when Ware was allegedly told to change into a bikini and was photographed to make sure she was ‘calendar ready.’
Ware stayed with the team for another season until she made the decision to leave in June 2017 after her third year.
Don’t you DARE talk about virginity when all the other girls are talking about their sex lives!
You might think that if a workplace had a policy concerning sex, it would be to NOT have one’s personal life and sexual behaviors brought into the workplace. Some people might such behavior was unprofessional, or something.
But not management at the Dolphins. If anybody needs to be silenced, it’ll be the virgin.
Speaking of being silenced — that comes up in the lawsuit, too.
Ware, who concluded three seasons as a Dolphins cheerleader in 2017, alleges that the team brought her severe emotional and physical distress in her last year and that NFL players are held to different standards regarding social media and expression of faith. In April of 2016, Ware posted a picture of her baptism on social media and alleges she was questioned about it by team officials before being told to not discuss her decision to abstain from sex before marriage.
She claimed that Dolphins cheerleading director Dorie Grogan told her of her virginity: “You have taken something that was once upon a time pure and beautiful and you’ve made it dirty.” Ware claims that the team’s choreographer, Brooke Nix, then told her, “it is still beautiful, but you need to stop talking about it.”
As for the social media? She says the team would ‘edit down’ any of her social media posts that referenced her beliefs, while others were allowed to say ‘whatever they wanted’.
Not surprisingly, the Dolphins official response was that they comply with all business standards on discrimination, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
Tim Tebow got a hard time for the same thing, didn’t he?
Nobody says ‘boo’ when NFL superstar gets arrested, or when someone claims ‘89% of players smoke pot‘.
But Heaven forbid somebody mentions God or morality! Then all Hell breaks loose.
(So to speak.)
Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):
Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
