''But I'm a Cheerleader'' is a 2000 comedy lampooning the idea of [[CureYourGays homosexual reform camps]] with the story of Megan, a God-fearing cheerleader who has never paid her homosexual tendencies any thought until being sent to the True Directions camp. While there, she admits the homosexuality that [[TransparentCloset everyone but her had apparently seen]], and falls in love with another of the True Directions members, Graham.

Added DiffLines:

* CluelessAesop: While the film obviously had good intentions, critics from both LGBT and mainstream media have noted that it was too stereotypical. The boys running in particular is ridiculous; no-one runs like that, especially not if they’re running for their lives to avoid a ''hatchet'' falling on them.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Megan didn't break up with her boyfriend neither before the camp, nor meanwhile through phone or a message. She even mentioned having a boyfriend during their group therapy. Was he waiting for her during the camp? Was she practically cheating on him with Graham?

** Historically, these programs were even ''worse'' than what we see here. Methods including aversion therapy, lobotomies, nausea-inducing drugs, chemical castration and flat-out torture were used to "cure" a person of their non-straight tendencies. Nowadays, most conversion programs in the United States stick with therapy, psychoanalysis, and (if the program is religion-oriented) prayer, though on occasion you'll hear reports of a (usually unlicensed) camp reverting to the old methods.
