Cheerleading and pole-dancing?

I posted a while back about cheerleading and how it fits into what we call sport. This video from Reuters really tackles that question head-on. It's up today 'cause a boxing promoter recently inflicted some pole-dancing on us as part of the 'entertainment' at his show here in Dublin. We were talking about that last night so when I saw this cheerleading-behind-the-scenes footage, just had to share. They're not exactly the same of course as we talked about in the first post, but there is a certain element of voyeurism, of the male gaze that just makes me uncomfortable.

Let me know what you think!
