This is a powerful, meaningful and important piece everyone should watch.
“SKATEBOARDING is commonly portrayed as a welcoming culture. A movement that promote personal freedom and encourage creativity. At the same time, we skaters have created a Boy’s Club, where sexism and homophobia is widely tolerated, sometimes even encouraged. Our language, our ideals and our images all testify to that one same thing, we strive to preserve skateboarding as a masculine activity. Our rules and strategies result in an alienation of anything female or feminine. Often oppression is exercised against those who do not fit into our picture of a skateboarder. We have the power to break this system, but amongst us “boys” there is virtually no discussion about what values we project. We boys need to talk.”
