**Disclaminer**
(taken from my sister who phrased it very eloquently) The parts in the documentary that talk about derby being a female-dominated sport aren't meant to be a snub toward any men (or transgender or genderless people). I think she just wanted to address part of what drew her--and many others--to roller derby, which is that it was very much all about the ladies, good sportswomanship, the dedication, etc.

Please keep in mind, also, that this documentary was made over four years ago. Since then, many strides have been made to make the sport more inclusive. Leagues have changed their gender policies to include more than just those who identify as female. Some leagues have even changed their names--for example, the Denver Roller Dolls are now known as Denver Roller Derby, and their affiliate men's league (Ground Control) is great!

I guess what I'm trying to say is: Yvonne loving women's roller derby doesn't mean she is against men's derby. But of course you are absolutely welcome to like or dislike this documentary, that is your choice. I just wanted to make that first part known.
