Vote for Shaunee

By Barcham 28 August 2013 50

Shaunee

I may not be a big fan of sport, but I am a big fan of being competitive over odd things and now I really want Shaunee to beat all the Cheerleaders from other teams.

TAKE NO PRISONERS SHAUNEE!

Perfume Box Raiderette Shaunee is into the final of the Big League Cheerleader of the year competition. See how you can help her pick up the prize.
To Vote for Shaunee Raiders fans text SHAUNEE to 19 992 220 (Aus 55c) or 3132 (NZ 20c). Voting is open now and closes September 2 at 11.59pm.

According to her profile on the Raiders site, the best thing about Canberra is Goodberrys and this is her favourite YouTube video:

Happy to oblige, unless you want to nitpick what constitutes judgement?

“Voted because I feel sorry for her, who in their right mind would call their kid Shaunee?”
“Oh bloody hell, I’m so glad someone said it. Thought it was just me for a moment…”
“Sorry Alderney but stereotypes exist for a reason. I’ve no doubt she’s a lovely person but her parents should be flogged. By choosing a name like this they’ve condemned her to a life as either a check out chick or Raiders cheerleader.”
“Shaunee? I wonder if her parents come from New Zealand?”

My question was “Can you quote where anyone has “judge(d) a girl by the name her parents gave her” here?’

Not; “Can you quote where anyone has “judge(d) the parents of this girl by the name they gave her” here?

Thanks for proving my original intent right. No one has judged Shaunee for her parents atrocious taste in names. Thank you.

Can you quote where anyone has “judge(d) a girl by the name her parents gave her” here? I’d be interested in reading that.

That’s in Australia. Why is the NZ cost only 20c ? We are being ripped off with our phone scams.

If it was 55c in NZ no one could afford to vote.

Well this thread has put s few of the RA regulars a bit lower on the social standings in my opinion.

The narrow mindedness of people to judge a girl by the name her parents gave her does more to show their lack of intelligence or open mindedness than anything else. I may be being blunt but it’s what I think.

I have known this girl for approximately 2 years and dealt with her in her day job for over 18 months before I even knew she was a Raiderette. She is a lovely girl who is polite, well mannered and always smiling. To hear people who know nothing more than the name she was given or a few words in her profile says volumes about them.

Probably time for some introspection peoples.

I think it’s always worth calling out bad behaviour when we see it, even if it will rarely change the behaviour of the person you are calling out.

….

Which is exactly why I will continue to criticise you for starting so many threads in which women feature only or primarily as sex objects, even if you are far too concerned with appearing zany and interesting to change your behaviour. It’s a weird hobby, but someone has to do it.

Of course I agree that calling vulnerable people horrible things, or being cruel about a particular person’s name, is unacceptable in a different way.

I think having the Riotact consciously encourage a stupid “pay 55c to vote with no free internet voting option” competition is a bit of a Riotact low. Shaunee Schmaunee – I hope barcham is the only sucker who parts with good money for her cause!

In the interests of equality and competition I’ll put myself up…

Name: Roger [my Raiderette name only]. Roger the Raiderette.

Favourite ‘Perfume Box’ Perfume: Have they got any with Glen 20 in them?

Best thing about Canberra: The perfume counter at DJ’s. (I can mention them, right?)

Fav song to dance to: The Volga Boat Song. Or anything Volga, really.

Dream job: Yes please.

You might be surprised to know : I’m at Cube, with your Dad.

Favourite YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHyygU1cU0k (or anything with cats in it, in fact I wish that one had a cat in it).

Why you love rugby league: Ordinarily I’d allude to the complex interplay of geopolitical and philosophical discourse, interpreted physically through the dynamic juxtaposition of futility, kinetic disorder and ritualistic debasement, conditioned against alternating tableaux of bogans, but that would be prolix. I mainly like the punch-ups.

Won’t work. Salmon don’t have the range.
