Too many amazing comments posted already. It was funny because it was also ironic — I am doing great, great just looks a little different for all of us. You are commenting using your Twitter account. I know what you're thinking. This is simply a movie about a teenager who becomes empowered and grows up through an activity she loves. You can argue the setting, fine, but if that flag is in there, you can bet there is some submersive anymosity towards men. The last name "Rocket" makes it more than obvious that he represents a penis, an impotent one.

If it did, then ALL males who play sports must be gay, especially those who play contact sports. I'm not saying that a closeted lesbian watching this film wouldn't necessary have the reaction you're suggesting. At first, her refusal to do so following a somewhat hokey masturbation scene that is intercut with fantasy images of her female love object seems reflective of her self-denial, her internalized homophobia, and her somewhat cowardly response to schoolyard pressure. I encourage you to attend a roller derby event. Margaret socially functions as a sexual being by virtue of existing within a subculture of lesbian sex work, but that subculture largely retains real-world beauty standards, rendering her body simultaneously unattractive and sexually commodified.

It certainly wasn't the representation of some chasm of repressed sexuality that you happened to see in it. Women seem to be a bit more middling than at the extremes of the Kinsey Scale of sexual preference or the Riddle Scale of homophobia. This "review" is laughable at best. How can you presume to put yourself in the position of a closeted small town lesbian? You have given the "people" a chance to respond to this super douch like article.
My first thought was why do you assume roller derby girls are gay!!! During their first encounter, the client asks Margaret to take her clothes off. Whether in a group of lesbians or straight dudes: everyone has an opinion on scissoring. Then what to make of somebody who calls themselves a born again heterosexual? Then go "snip snip" with your fingers kidding!
