Literally.In 2014, the Los Angeles Times released excerpts of the 2012 Raiderettes etiquette agreement. 

Mic obtained a comprehensive copy. It provides an unsettling overview of the rigid and blatantly sexist double standards cheerleaders must endure with a smile, because “negative facial expressions” are prohibited. Read more. (2/16/2017 5:00 PM)

Gotham Mysteries: Harley Quinn is supposed to show up at the end of the season, and she’s supposed to be someone we already know. But who? Here are a few possibilities:

1. Dr. Leslie Thompkins -Pro: She’s interacted with Jerome, and they have chemistry. She’s a practicing therapist, who’s worked at Arkham, and has a history of being a risk taker who gets involved with violent men. Con: She’s quite a bit older than Jerome.
2. Barbara Kean- Pro: She’s worked with Jerome, she’s a criminal, and she’s unstable. Con: She’s also older than Jerome.
3.Silver St. Cloud- She comes from a family of criminals, she’s tough as nails, and Jerome worked for her Uncle. She’s the right age. Con: None as yet, but would she strike sparks with Jerome?
4. Jeri-Pro: An important figure in the Jerome Cult. Con: Again, a major age difference.
5. The Bank Teller-Pro: Admires criminals. Appeared in “Red Hood” episode. She’s the right age. Con: A peripheral character with one brief appearance.
6. Back from the dead- Pro: Anyone who’s dead is fair game; Kristen/Isabella is one example. Since Jerome is reanimated, why shouldn’t Harley be? Con: Depends on who they reanimate.
7. Dr. Marks- Pro: A psychiatrist who hates the wealthy elite, she sent her patients out to kill the rich and create chaos. Con: Another peripheral character, and another age difference.
8. Random Cheerleader- Pro: She would be the right age. Con: She, or any other random “background” character, doesn’t qualify as someone we already know-unless they stretch that definition.
