Cheerleaders and athletes for that matter, along with other celebrities, often visit deployed Soldiers to boost morale. Personally, I have no issues with it. But I am curious that with today’s political climate - where they are removing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from radio Christmas mixes, how much longer will cheerleaders continue to visit (mostly) male troops without someone crying out it is objectifying women? Don’t cheerleaders take that job knowing the purpose? Our joes call them “eye candy.” For that matter, if a woman or man take a job where their looks are an important factor, and their clothes enhance their looks, is that “sexist?” At what point does political correctness cross a line?

I hope they're more selective with the "celebrities" being sent. Imagine Kaepernick "waving the flag"

For morale purposes hopefully never! Athletes comedians and cheerleaders all support the troops so let's just hope the stupid "political correctness" crowd stays away...
