The Ongoing Decline of the West--University of Washington Edition (Updated)

The Daily Mail reports today, "Flattering eye shadow - but no tattoos: Outrage at University of Washington's checklist for budding cheerleaders that 'objectifies women'." The outrage is over a poster published by the cheer-leading squad to provide tips on personal appearance for women interested in trying out as a cheerleader:

Apparently the Social Justice Warriors would prefer that cheerleaders look like what is shown below (warning: you may want to poke out your eyes after viewing):

Update: Apparently the people upset by the poster are racists; the "problem" is that the poster featured a white woman. From The Huffington Post:
“I can’t believe this is real,” UW student Jazmine Perez, who is director of programming for student government, told the Seattle Times. “One of the first things that comes mind is objectification and idealization of Western beauty, which are values I would like to believe the University doesn’t want to perpetuate. As a student of color who looks nothing [ed: a lot] like the student in the poster, this feels very exclusive.”
Poor, whiny rich girl: cheer squad is supposed to be exclusive. Otherwise, we would have people like Feminist the Hutt, pictured above, jumping up and down on the football field (well, a few times before they were exhausted and collapsed to the ground) and yelling expletives at everyone.
