Dena Clark, lead choreographer and coach of the Blue Lightning, steps down after lewd photos of her cheerleading squad went viral on the web earlier this week.[url=http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/story/4201332p-4793170c.html]http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/ ... 3170c.html[/url]

While striving to change the perception of Bomber cheerleading from soft porn to art form, the appearance of said photos cemented the stereotype that Dena Clark was nothing more than the High Priestess of a cheerleading fertility cult. Views of these photos on this forum alone exceeded the entire 3 year history of Kevin Glenn's career in less than 24 hours.
Dena's appearance in some of the more innocent, yet sexually playful photos resulted in an assisted resignation from the Blue Lightning cheerleading squad. This was a mistake on the organization’s part, in my opinion. They were essentially uprooting the prized gardener instead of the wild flowers that shamed the organization. Dena Clark was deemed guilty by association and by other’s indiscretions. Public photographs accentuate the best and worse in all of us.
Please, before you vilify Dena Clark and the Blue Lightning cheerleading squad, consider that 18-25 year old women comprise the majority of society's most pleasant, kind, gentle and adorable adults.
