In our culture (especially here in conservative Utah) girls are told to sit down, be quiet, be sweet, be pretty, don't yell, lose weight and don't rock the boat. Those rules don't seem to apply with the Roller Derby crowd. Where else can you see a 200 pound girl in black fishnet stockings and a pink tutu! These girls are not afraid to be their authentic selves. It's all about the sport, the sisterhood and not about looking pretty for boys.
Next time we go we'll take our daughters.
