Re: “Humboldt Roller Derby -- the Saplings Version!

as a sapling (and a 15-yr-old girl) i dont think saplings is sexist; it's the complete opposite.

its not about us having ovaries and vaginas, its about girls having a chance to play and excel at a sport that lets us express ourselves as women and as athletes.

sarah: saplings isn't demeaning, and this article isn't demeaning, but your comments are.

Re: “Humboldt Roller Derby -- the Saplings Version!

Saplings rock! I loved the tough derby girls (the women) taking the saplings (girls) under their wings. (Sometimes the chick thing works, and hens too). It's not just female, it's generational. What a great sport--celebrates individuality and teamwork, diversity and cooperation. I gotta love derby, especially Redwood Rollers! I so appreciate the love, sweat, and tears that went into the Saplings, and thanks Jennifer for the article!
