1Hey Coach,
I'm a skater girl from Germany and I don't know what to do. Many guys tell me that chicks don't skate but I love it! In my village, some other skaters know that I skate, but at my school nobody knows it. I can't hide for any longer, because some of the kids (who I dislike) who are at my school are moving into my village. In the school I always wear clothes like other girls but at home, I always try to wear baggy clothes. If anybody at my school finds out, I will be totally hated at school! I don't know what to do. I can risk it or stop skating. Please help!

Hey skatergirlgermany,
Well, it sounds like the kids at your school are a bunch of losers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a chick who skates. In fact, I happen to think (as do a lot of other cool, smart, good looking guys,) that a sk8ter girl is the best kind of girl. My advice to you is to be proud of who you are and what you do (Sounds cheesy, but it's good advice.) Stop trying to be something you're not (a non-sk8ter girl) and ignore any jerk who tries to tell you skating is uncool. Sure, some people may get on your back about your "different" hobby, but if you're comfortable with yourself, and don't show 'em it bugs you, they'll probably back off soon enough. In the end, you'll be happier being yourself than acting like a non-skating poser.

1 Omg! My problem is just like skatergirl's it's just that I dont hide it. There's this group @ school that I totally HATE and they called me a poser, and said I couldn't sk8t at all. I mean, they haven't even seen me do it once. I won a competiton here - well not really won, I got second place. But anywayz they are so ANNOYING!!!

    CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
