Confession: I want to be a roller derby girl

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

We have a female roller derby team here and I want to be a part of it, but I feel like I can't because I am fat and all the girls are punkish and fierce. I am sensitive and I took all my peircings out years ago. :(

I want to do it too. I am going to try out the beginning of next season when I'm not nursing anymore.

Quoting lulu_tattoos:

Get to know the team before you start. Its a huge expenditure to get rolling in it, especially if you decide you don't like it.

I know one of the girls. She is a sweetheart. She is an old roomate of mine from years ago and my husband is her boss.

Derby is a great thing to join if you are selfconscious. Those women are the bees knees at accepting other woman for who they are!

I know a few of our local roller derby girls. Not all of them are tiny little things. Healthy, and physically fit, yes....but itty bitty? not always. 

Go for it. Start training at a rink and do your thing.
