People think of the "ideal" cheerleader as a female, because it was females that started the sport. On terms of technicality, it may be easier for a female cheerleader to tumble because they phisically have less body to flip around. It may also be less complicated for girls to stunt. In terms of watching the sport ( college ), people like to watch girls in skimpy uniforms, for obvious reasons.

actually that is false the first cheerleader was a male (Thomas Peebles was the first cheerleader) also males a normally better cheerleaders they have higher jumps better tumbling throw higher baskets that is why most colleges are co-ed the reason why the "ideal" cheerleader is a female is because people dont look at cheerleading as a competing sport they think its people at games running around saying cheers and they would rather look at a girl in a skirt then a males also most people have never even seen a real comp
