Here’s something I made cuz I’m getting pretty tired and embarrassed by all the homophobia among us skaters. (It gets pretty apparent when you spend even a BIT of time reading the comments section on any skate-related Insta account, or whatever.)
We keep saying we’re awesome, open-minded people, but then “faggot” always seems to be our go-to insult for any occasion.
Mad that Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber are skateboarding? Call them a faggot on some Instagram account they’ll never ever look at! Perfect!
Mad that Nyjah Huston said some bullshit about girls not belonging in skateboarding? Stand up for ONE segment of society while pointlessly slapping down another and call him a faggot! Justice is served!
Come on: that’s some ignorant jock shit right there. Think about all those racist kooks from a few decades ago who didn’t wanna end segregation. Think about how stupid they look now. Do we REALLY wanna have been on that side of the homophobia fence when we look back on ourselves 40, 30 (or even TWO) years from now?
Homophobia sucks, skateboarding rules, let’s get our shit together.
