We Need To Talk About: Dangerous, Unsportsperson-Like Behavior

On Friday I shared this clip from the Denver/Rose City game from this year’s Big O.


Rose City All Stars issued this statement-


Some in the derbyverse are calling for suspensions, some are looking for a WFTDA statement, some are concerned about this use of video replay. There is A LOT to unpack here but I hope leadership will make it known this is not tolerated and this is the last we see of it. ¯\_(ツ)_/

Fundraiser Highlight: Get Tem binder-free! - "Chest II: The Flattening"

If you have the means, please donate to help Tem get top surgery! If not, please share!

Hello, my name is Tem, and I need your help getting something off my chest.

I'm a 26 year-old transgender roller derby referee living in Scotland, and I've been pursuing top surgery via the National Health Service for many years now. Unfortunately, I am no closer to achieving this goal than I was when I started out. I'm autistic and suffer from PTSD as well as depression and anxiety, and this combination of neurodiversities has made it impossible for me to jump through the medical hoops required to access gender-affirming medical treatment via the state-sponsored health service.

I've reached the point now though where my physical health is being seriously compromised too, and it's for this reason that I've finally been persuaded into starting this fundraiser. As an internationally elite-level roller derby referee, I spend an average of 20 hours per week roller skating hard in circles round a track in sports halls all over the world and my dysphoria is such that I CANNOT do so without wearing a binder.
