is @sweden 2017-10-16 to 2017-10-23

I am Elin, also knowns as @bitterhittan. I am a roller derby player in Stockholm Roller Derby and you can recognise me on the track, because I am the one leaving a trail of glitter behind me. Things that are dear to me are family, friends and, of course, my hundred plants. I am a queer feminist and a Hufflepuff.

I also want to mentions that one of my fav things is saffron semlor! https://t.co/1s7rvIF3lh

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 11:47 a.m.

@Colwildotcom semlor is always good karma!

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 11:46 a.m.

@Dhiel You should def come skating with us when we have our next fresh meat intake!!

For all of you who think October is too soon I just want to let you know that the picture of me as a christmas tree is from April.

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 10:15 a.m.

@UkuleleKris what is a christmas sandwich?

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 10 a.m.

@JohnDalton6011 it is a christmas tree... trees are green...

@sweden Oct. 18, 2017, 9:54 a.m.

@Hallberg23 yeah they are! And of course it is easier to maintain a good environment within smaller communities.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 8:45 p.m.

@Cee_Lee_ @Likriktaren CCR is my second bestest league!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 7:20 p.m.

Also all of you trying to blame centuries of oppression on "you take on too many immigrants" - please get out off my mentions you are wrong.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 6:07 p.m.

@fmfdlr I just put vaseline on my face and then add glitter. Use making tape to make the edges if I want them sharp.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:56 p.m.

Also I love roller derby because of all the glitter! https://t.co/md7i64PK46

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:48 p.m.

And yes at said after parties we do the other kind of hitting on our opponents. Might get physical, but it is consentual!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:46 p.m.

Other sport's supporters are directed to different subways, to avoid fights. Meanwhile we are directed to the joint after party.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:44 p.m.

I can love and support my team without having to bash others in any way. We are one community.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:41 p.m.

Even when roller derby is played on the highest level you see skaters high five each other on the track for doing awesome things.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 5:40 p.m.

I also love roller derby because it does not ever condition me to hate another team. There are no enemies in derby, only frenemies.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:39 p.m.

I love how roller derby challenge the norms about who does rough sports and how.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:38 p.m.

For many people roller derby is a safe space that is life changing and so very important.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:37 p.m.

In roller derby the women and trans people define the context. It is on our terms from the beginning to the end.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:36 p.m.

@jdhovland I play flat track but these things are as far as I know the same in bort.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:34 p.m.

Roller derby is different because it is a sport where the man is not the norm, but it is still hard and rough.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:32 p.m.

Roller derby is a full contact sport on quad skates. It is a sport organized by the skaters for the skaters. It is fierce and awesome!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 4:31 p.m.

So roller derby, I promised to tell you alla about how awesome it is!

So world, I just wanna say thanks for all the love and pepp I have gotten since I shared this (☝) tweet yesterday. You are amazing!

@sweden Oct. 17, 2017, 9:10 a.m.

@CapriciousNest @uh_se I am not but I have friends who are. I love derby because it is inclusive and adapts, on this as well on other stuff.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:02 p.m.

@CapriciousNest @BitterHittan 3) it is just regular glitter that I put on. Sometimes it gets in the eye tho, which can be a tad annoying.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2017, 10:01 p.m.

@CapriciousNest @BitterHittan 1) TY 😍❤, 2) skating with Stockholm Roller Derby, 3) it is actually on the eye lids, not the lashes.
