Sometimes we laugh because it’s the only way not to cry.
One blogger made us laugh with a parody research article that reveals that Amount of ‘allowable harassment’ is directly proportional to skating prowess and derby fame
Some humdingers include:
“If you are a mid-range jammer of a great team, then you can get away with sending some unsolicited dick pics to other members of the derby community without any real consequences.”
As well as:
“These results were surprising to us, as we previously thought roller derby was somehow magically different from other sports or the rest of the world.”
Humor can be a great way to cope. That said, please don’t think it detracts from the seriousness of these issues. Sometimes we just want to laugh instead of cry.
