In a sick and twisted way, a group of sexual predators is trying to explain their crimes against children by saying it is a natural trait that they were born with; an innate feeling that they have no control over and that should be as widely accepted as LGBTQ.  This disgraceful attempt to justify their malicious acts falls at a time when cheer athletes are beginning to come forward and speak out against predators.  Our sport has historically been progressive in equality for LGBTQ rights and for this fringe group of criminals to attach their twisted actions to the LGBTQ community and demand for equality is reprehensible.  WWW.THECHEERDOC.COM WWW.HITZERONUTRITION.COM  Music in the intro: Purity by Mesqo provided by Free Music for Vlogs
