Now Playing Tracks

rincewindsapprentice:

Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Australia

alright alright i’m just gonna throw this out there

not every girl who wears rollerskates plays roller derby

that bitch is not prepared to play roller derby. aside from the fact that she’s sitting on the ground in some weird sexy pose, she’s wearing NO pads, and shit, don’t even get me started on her choice of wheels/toestops.

i’m sick and tired of blogs who reblog pictures of sexy ladies in rollerskating and try to pass it off as roller derby

get out of the roller derby tag you sick fucking fetishizing piece of shit

This, a million times this.

HOWEVER: remember this when you want to have your “sexy derby girl” photo shoot.

Gear is part of derby, more than fishnets or cute socks.

Nothing grinds my gear more than seeing a poster for a league that follow wftda rules with skaters in skates, and no gear. Or refs in sleeveless ref jerseys on a poster.
This isn’t banked track, we require everyone to wear gear, kthx.

Blarg. (I know I don’t have much company on team safety gear, but I still rant about it.)
