I wonder how he feels about the tons of gay jokes that get thrown around in the bmx community.

It's not just the BMX community, it's any action sports that holds this super machismo aspect to it. Skating, Moto, snowboarding, whatever. Slap that onto the fact the main/common insult in the early 2000's was "you're gay". I feel like almost everyone is okay with gay people now, even in our sport. Most motorsports fans are still really sketchy, though.

Fuck, I logged onto my PinkBike account the other day to sell some parts and I was actually shocked at how annoying and rude I was with my comments when I was ~15 years old. Almost everything I disliked and commented on was "fucking gay". hahaha, I deleted my account because it was essentially just my name. But I remember back then, some of my friends voicemails would be "Hey, I can't get to the phone right not but you're gay!"

Things were definitely different. Not that they were better, just different.
