First of all..tut tut for clicking on this..but i know …curiosity and all that. I’d just like to say that I am sick of seeing all these comments over and over again on how women look when they are doing things like skateboarding or any sport. We are not posting to get likes from men. We are posting to inspire young women and are putting all of our energy into growing the scene and doing so. Please think about what a 13 year old girl reads into your comment on her favourite female skaters latest clip and ask yourselves why it has taken us so long to get to this point.
The other day one of my tiny female skate friends told me she wanted to shave her head at the skatepark….and then she asked me if I would still like her without her hair!!! It broke my heart to think that she thought any of the reason I liked her was because of how she looks.
If we post photos of our bodies it is because we have them and so do the women and girls viewing our content and they should all be proud of how they look.
All the women who skate are different and represent someone younger out there who can relate to them. We do not need you validation or constant opinions of how we look in relation to what we are doing. Please!!
I put a few of their weird comments below…
“Sorry I love that girls skating has stepped up but please tell me why they look like dudes I’m a huge fan of the ladies skating but when I thought this was a guy at first lol and Leticia bufoni is so hot omg lol but overall congrats Lacey well done”
“That doesn’t have a vagina.”
“Pretty good for a girl”
“thats a women ???”
“Not really my thing but she is very ‘conventionally’ attractive and posts a fair few saucy pics”
“Hopefully this isn’t just something to allow teenage girls to justify wearing Thrasher tops and Eras”
“model? Or professional skateboarder? Lol”
“I’d switch heelflip over you and kiss you”
….that last one…there are so so many its surprising to see how many hateful people there are out there.
Lets open up a conversation…what do you guys think??!
