Can we take the Gay out of flatland?
« on: August 13, 2009, 07:49:27 AM »
If your gay? That's fine but why does flatland have to be so gay?

Baco crew was no acception but atleast you kinda new they were kidding around?

I mean its already a little fruity but with all the pink, gym shorts, girl pants, shirtless dudes in advertisements? Girl bikes with bent top tubes? WTF? This is not helping!

Not trying to offend anyone one but I think we need to toughen up our image a little!

I love flatland but I'm almost ashamed :)

Feel free to respond with your opinions.

Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

For the record, to anyone who actually thought I was ripping on gay people with my post...the gay acquaintance who showed me that video said, "I think this just set back gay rights 20 years".

dude you are not helping your own cause with that pic of you on the unicycle.  Unicycles are gayer than anything.

You do realize that most riders riding in tight fitting jeans are not wearing girl pants right?

You also realize that you can't open a skateboarding catalog without the same jeans being plastered everywhere right? The same goes for street and park.

What the hell does it even mean to toughen up our image, and why does it matter what type of pants someone rides in?

Why don't remove part whores first, and dudes who ride hard but wear tighter jeans last?

Let's look over some of these "gay" accusations and see if at least one of said accusations would not be functional for flatland.

#1: Girl/Tight pants.  With the pant leg wrapped quite closely to the shin and ankle, with the crotch area not baggy at all, failed tricks due to pants rubbing on the tire, or seat and handlebars catching on baggy crotch or baggy pant in general is no longer an issue.

#2: Gym shorts.  Is it "gay" to wear gym shorts to work out? to play or practice basketball/tennis/baseball/football/soccer/running/etc.?  If so, I'll be informing every physically active individual who purchases or wears gym short that they are now the image of a homosexual.

#3: The color pink.  Any and all males owning an object that is the color pink is now considered to be "gay."

#4: Shirtless guys in advertisements.  Please inform Menhealth magazine, GQ, Maxim, Sports Illustrated, and any other magazine that portrays a very cut, muscular man that their images of those men make their magazine's subject "gay."

But then again, what do I know?  I wear girl pants, and gym shorts for riding, and have been in a flatlandfuel ad that ran in several Cream magazine issues doing a shirtless, x foot hang ten.  I'm sorry I'm not manly enough for flatland.  After today, I will no longer partake in flatland.
The following is the truth.  The preceeding is a lie.

I would also like to know your opinion on Chase riding naked and in his underwear. Surely this is "gay" too so I would like you to include a condemnation of Chase in the original post to suit your stance.

I agree with Tyler, I enjoy seeing his passion pour out of him like this. you should cum back to Texas as soon as you can. Having you here was amazing, it made us all stiff from practice and exercise... we never wanted to get off so bad, after riding so hard... just thinking about it makes my ass muscles cramp up again. god they were sooooo sore. haha how about yours??
