“You can see the sides of their bodies! This is an outrage!” posted on

The Dallas Maverick cheerleaders’ new outfits have been getting a lot of press both foreign and stateside. Why? Because they’re so damn skimpy, of course. But are they? When I first saw the photos, they didn’t seem the least bit controversial. In fact, with the piece of fabric down the middle, they seem far less revealing than most. But I am a member of the hallowed fourth estate, so I couldn’t take that on faith. I needed to see cold, hard facts. Time to compare:

So they don’t seem that out of place in the NBA. Are the NFL cheerleaders more well-covered?

Verdict: This kid is disappointed in you for getting him excited for skimpier outfits.
