Glossary of some common (and not-so-common) colloquial terms used by skaters and skating fans. This post will not cover official technical terms (for now). For common technical skating terms, please see our Introduction to Skating guides, especially the posts on competitions, the scoring system, and technical elements. Important terms there are italicized or bolded.
This post will be updated. If we’ve missed something obvious (which we probably have), shoot us a message.
It’s okay to be tired of feeling like you need to prove you are real.
It’s okay to be tired of discussing whether you deserve human rights or not.
It’s okay to be tired of hearing “What does that even mean” or “That’s not even a real thing” each time you come out to someone.
It’s okay to be tired of feeling like you need to prove it’s not “just a phase”.
It’s okay to be tired of getting asked inappropriate questions.
It’s okay. I understand.
Of course it’s great when we educate others. But when it gets too exhausting or you encounter people who don’t want to understand no matter how much you explain, it’s okay (and sometimes necessary for your mental health) to make it easier for yourself. What that means, only you can decide. It may mean using a umbrella term, choosing not to come out to some people or changing the topic instead of trying to argue against your aunt’s homophobic rant. You’re not a liar or a betrayer if you don’t educate others on lgbt+ terms or lgbt+ rights at each single opportunity. This is especially important when arguing with ignorant or hateful people leaves you with feelings of self-hate.
Sweetie, it’s okay to smile and think “F*ck you, i don’t own you explanations”.
