WEST HOLLYWOOD The Raiderettes, the official cheerleaders of NFL's Oakland Raiders, received the National Achievement Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Transvestite People on Tuesday. The Raiderettes were honored for having the first transvestite cheerleader in NFL history.
C.C. (right) is in its first season as a member of the Raiderettes and serves as an inspiration to its peers.
"This is a proud day for transvestites everywhere," said spokesperson Ginger. "It has taken so long for us to finally gain acceptance in such a manly sport such as football. We are glad the Raiders were the first organization to do so."
The Raiderettes said that they did not set out to make history when they added the first "Tranny" to its cheerleading squad. But, much like the Raiders makeshift secondary, had to make do with the available personnel. Besides, C.C. was able to use the men's bathroom which allowed the Raiderettes to avoid some embarrassing situations, unlike those Carolina Panthers cheerleaders.
"We had a lot more girls to choose from when we were in Southern California," said one Raiderettes official. "But have you seen some of the girls in Northern California, specifically Oakland? There was nothing we could really do about it. And if anything, it made the swimsuit calendar shoot really interesting."
NFL players around the league were surprised to find out that one of the cheerleaders they had been ogling on the sidelines was really a transvestite. Other players were not really that concerned.
"I don't know what the big deal is," Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said. "It seemed pretty cool to me."
