My son is 16. He's applied for cheerleading as a hobby. Me and my wife thought it was good, he's athletic and into sports. The cheer squad is not affiliated with his highschool.
The issue at hand is the uniforms. His coach has said he has to wear a crop top and skirt (like the rest of the cheerleaders) with a sports bra and black, blue or red Spanx underneath, and that there is no male equivalent.
He told me he felt embarrased about the uniform and tried to sensibly discuss it with her but she said there wasn't an alternative.
My son is worried about this.
I feel like confronting this woman and giving her a piece of my mind but my wife says we should both confront her. Our son is unsure of how to handle this and worries about the whole thing. How can we address the issue?
