The report adds to the growing pile of evidence that NFL cheerleaders across the league are forced to work under unfair conditions, and, as suggested by the women who spoke to the Times, often beyond the confines of their jobs on the football field. During a calendar photo shoot trip to Costa Rica, the cheerleaders said, the team invited a group of all-male sponsors and FedExField suite holders to watch the squad members pose topless or in nothing but body paint for their photos. Several of them began to cry. Other girls were devastated because we knew exactly what she was doing. The cheerleaders noted that their escorting duties did not require them to have sex with the men. The team confirmed to the Times that the cheerleaders were paid nothing for the weeklong trip, though their transportation costs, meals and lodging were covered. Teel Jr. One of the cheerleaders who spoke to the Times described a similar pressure to participate in the events on the yacht. One cheerleader a few years later was told what to expect at the annual affair. But we were too scared to complain.

For the photo shoot, at the adults-only Occidental Grand Papagayo resort on Culebra Bay, some of the cheerleaders said they were required to be topless, though the photographs used for the calendar would not show nudity. Others wore nothing but body paint. A contingent of sponsors and FedExField suite holders — all men — were granted up-close access to the photo shoots.
You might need to trade missionary lessons for research on her part, and we can suggest less scary resources. By all means, I encourage you to try having those discussions and to make a mental note of when you would choose to walk away instead. In my view, baptism at 8 is just a variation on infant baptism. That is a hard truth.
