We’re Not Buying It. September 14, 2007

Why is it that some skate companies feel they need to market their products using mean-spirited advertising that degrades women?

Hey, listen up out there.  We’re skaters too.

We appreciate clever advertising as much as other skaters, but this stuff just isn’t funny.

So we’ve made a vow.

We’re not buying skate stuff from companies that don’t respect women.

And guess what? We’re not letting our kids buy it either.

We’re also making a list of companies that support women and girls who skate. Look for it here, real soon.

Can you name companies that deserve our support? Tell us why, and we’ll add them to our list.
