One time, I managed to run over my own finger while skateboarding.

It really hurt.

I was 23 at the time.

"Grown men who skateboard: Get off, man!

Skateboarding is cool for little boys – but not for grown men in the eyes of brigitte.de author Bianka Echtermeyer.

There are things which cause aggressive behavior in me. This has to happen unconsciously, because the reasons are not immediately clear to me. When I moved from the fancy Hamburg/Eppendorf to the hip Hamburg/St. Pauli, they were suddenly there: grown men who skateboard. They were together with other grown men and little boys, which were obviously not their sons. I love the Kiez (famous nightlife area in Hamburg) and its crazyness. Even the tourists don’t bother me much. However, when I see men way older than 25 who glue a skateboard between themselves and the ground, cause me seeing red. Very often, they are guys who wear a weird bangs haircut, never smile and smell like last night’s party. I would love to pull them by their graying hair and yell at them: “Stop it! You’re way too old for that.”

Skateboards belong to little boys. End of story. Not to people who pay taxes and frequent an orthopedist. Men older than 30, who want to let off steam, can drive fast cars, play soccer or climb trees. I wouldn’t mind that. But please, stop skateboarding. I, too, don’t cross the street wearing a pink tutu. There are some things you grow away from: that’s not bourgeois – that’s a fact. And let’s be honest: being an adult isn’t that bad at all. I promise."

Bianka Echtermeyer sounds like a stupid bitch.
A dangerously stupid bitch in fact; she clearly thinks she's clever.

Nah I wouldn't be that harsh.
But taking so much time justify her hatred of people enjoying their hobby, for no other reason than her opinion of their age, makes she is a worrying combination of deluded, stupid, and well motivated.
