If there's anything football fans like, it's a man in a miniskirt and lipstick jiggling around on live TV.
Enjoy your new reality, Carolina fans!
In a league not known for its progressiveness, Justine Lindsay just made NFL history.
HISTORY. THIS IS HISTORY!!! SO HISTORIC!
Pour one out today for the other male cheerleaders the Panthers hired that won't get any attention now since they all "identify as" men.
The 29-year-old is the newest member of the Topcats, the Carolina Panthers' cheerleading squad — and she's [sic] the first openly trans NFL cheerleader.
In an Instagram post announcing that she [sic] was joining the Topcats, Lindsay came out as trans to her [sic] new teammates — and also to the rest of her [sic] community.
Here was the post from Lindsay:
Even Lindsay's best friend, whom she [sic] calls a sister, didn't know she [sic] was trans. It was a secret she'd [sic] kept from everyone except her [sic] family.
"I just felt like when I posted it, whatever reaction I get from everyone, it does not matter," Lindsay said. "And then my phone started blowing up."
There's no official record of NFL cheerleaders throughout history, but it seems Lindsay is the first trans person to be an NFL cheerleader, and she [sic] said she's [sic] happy to "break down that door" for future trans athletes.
Good job, NFL! I can't wait for the brave future where men show those female cheerleaders how men are better at literally everything!
