The fact that all the images that went with that article were all recent was a real fucking bummer. Man those Thank You board graphics ARE awful. First time I'm seeing them.

I had a chuckle that the there was an Enjoi banner at the top and side of the page while I was reading it when there was a photo of one of their products in the article.

To all the girl skaters out there - super glad you are doing the damn thang but best believe every guy skater had to take a massive amount of shit too. I would say 90 percent of talk at the park is shit talk, so don't act like you experienced negativity because you are female. You experienced negativity because you are human.

Negativity and shit talk is a very different thing to sexual harassment and assault!!!

Oh man, you've got a long way to go. There's a thing called the patriarchy. Learn about it. I can guarantee that our experiences of negativity / harassment as men pale in comparison to what women experience on a daily basis.

Sad article, but very much believable. Enjoi has had a lot of jabs at women over the years and I am a little ashamed now that I enjoied them so much.

I used to hold skateboarders in high regard, but I know we are the same cesspool or average horribleness as much as any sausage-fest group activity. The average young age does not help, either.

On a more positive note, skateboarders should be more like this guy: https://www.today.com/kindness/teenage-boy-skate-park-moms-letter-goes-viral-t51816

Great stuff in here.. Would be a good time for us humans to start treating each others equally.. I don't see what's the point of arguing with her points.. Just don't be a shit head and think what you say before you say it the should not be hard..

Also if this article upsets/triggers/umads' you, you're part of the problem

read the instagram comments on basically any viralish video of a girl skating and tell me the shit is equal

I'm from a time where if you were enough of a weirdo to have found skateboarding and taken your licks you were in, skin colour, gender, haircut, whatever.
Issues come from groups of males left alone with a lack of female influence on their environment, it changes behaviour, not just skateboarders but any group of "lads". The more insular and singular the demographic the more likely to be prejudiced to anything outside that norm.
As progressive as we like to think we are, operating outside social convention and being rule breakers, the similarity in attitude to females is on a par with a amateur local soccer team's drunken stag doo to Magaluf.
Hey, hey, hey, hey-now. Don't be mean; we don't have to be mean, cuz, remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

The idea that EVERY male skateboarder acts correctly to female skateboarders is retarded, it may be a only a handful (at best) people crossing boundaries. But I've never seen or heard of a guy skateboarder sexually harassed by a girl skateboarder. But I have heard a fair share of guys more than overstepping boundaries to girl skateboarders, and some pretty disgusting shit. Not just 'negative' park talk.
It happens, you're not a saint because you own a skateboard. You're a fucking idiot if you think girl skateboarders are immune from shit because they're in 'Club Skateboarder'

Skateboarding as much as you may hate it is the same as other hobbies or passions and other parts of society, to believe there's not sexism/homophobia/racism in skateboarding is beyond deluded.

Hey guys, regardless of ďhow it wasĒ when you grew up, times have changed. Iíll also guess you all are embellishing. I started in the early 90s in a populated skate city and it just wasnít as bad as everyone says.

American culture has changed. You can wax poetic all you want but know that you lost the culture war.

She's saying that you don't have to censor yourself but understand that your words and actions have different meanings to the people who have to hear them. Intentions only go so far.

There's a difference from making fun of someone's fit or how they land tricks to creepin and being a perv. It's sort of the same thing as going to the gym, you're skating as is the girl(s) there,and that's the main focus. Plus, if being a shithead to a girl is your method of getting action you might want to re up your game.

Sticking with the topic on hand, what kind of pass do female skaters get?
Like Daewon said: if skateboarding is a ten story building, Rodney is on eleventh floor.

I imagine this sort of shit happens when you have teenagers and the opposite sex around though
Really I assume itís kinda across all sports like the olympics village is not full of sex,innuendo and as grabbing.. so really I donít think the skateboard is the problem
