I was watching some vids that people had put up on here of rollerblading. Half the replies were things like 'fag, rollerblading sucks, you are gay for rollerblading, etc...'
One reply was particularly interesting. Something like 'that was gay because you were on rollerblades.'
Now, I don't rollerblade, so this is not me defending a sport that I like, but it seems to me like we are judging rollerblading like snowboarders judged us only 4 or 5 years ago.
Just because they are doing something that isnt on a skateboard, they are automatically labeled 'not cool'.
Maybe they dont have as much style as skateboarders, but did skiers have as much style as snowboarders 2 years ago? Do we even today? I'm not sure myself. It seems to me that anyone who skis and who says that rollerblading is gay, is a hypocrite.
