As someone who loves skiing, I love every aspect of skiing. That includes park, powder, moguls, aerials, ect. You have to respect every single person that attaches a pair of slippery sticks to a pair of ridiculous boots and starts going down hill on snow, no matter how they choose to do that. However, there's one particular group of skiers that isn't getting the respect they deserve, and that's female skiers. I see a video get posted, it gets a ton of views, it's really popular, it features an awesome chick skiing and I think "awesome, a chick is finally getting some respect." But then I read the comments, and it's filled with two things: hate and requests for sexual favors. So what does this girl do, eventually she stops posting her content, she shys away from the internet skiing community, and resorts to only posting her videos on Vimeo with the comments turned off. Now if this only happened once, sure, maybe she just can't handle the hate, I mean tons of people get hate on this site (although they shouldn't either, but that's another topic for another day). But this happens CONSTANTLY. Since becoming a mod I'm constantly getting requests to have comments deleted that are sexually abusive and demeaning to women, I'm noticing it more and more. And that absolutely FUCKED up part...these are hot chicks who FUCKING SKI!!! Some of them even better than you. These are girls you could potentially hang out with on the slopes and have a good time with. But instead, we hate on them and call them a slut and ask them to show their tits. Not only do you make her feel bad, but you make yourself look like an ass AND you ruin it for everyone else.
TL;DR: Stop ruining skiing for girls. Grow the fuck up. Start treating girls with the respect they deserve and be stoked that they enjoy the same sport as you.
Also FYI: Any negative shit without backing it up with reason and/or sexism/chauvinistic shit will be promptly deleted and met with a ban (and not just in this thread). Seriously, grow up.
