Letter To The Editor: Stop Using The Term “F*t Skis”


Dear Editors of Unofficial Networks,

I am writing to express my disdain over the use of the term “f*t skis” in your publication. While I understand that this term has been used in the skiing community for many years, I believe that it is time for us to move away from it and use more appropriate language.

The use of the term “f*t skis” to describe wider skis is derogatory and insensitive to those who may be overweight or obese. It reinforces negative stereotypes and contributes to a culture that shames people for their size. As a society, we should be moving towards more inclusive language and creating a more welcoming environment for all individuals, regardless of their size or body shape.

Furthermore, the term “f*t skis” is not an accurate description of the equipment being used. Skis are not “f*t” or “thin,”. They are simply wider or narrower. Using terms like “f*t skis” perpetuates a culture of shaming and objectification that has no place in the skiing community or in any other aspect of our lives.

As members of the skiing community, we should strive to create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all skiers. This includes using language that is respectful and does not perpetuate harmful stereotypes or biases. Instead of using the term “f*t skis,” we can use more appropriate language, such as “wide skis” or “powder skis,” to describe the equipment being used.

As members of the skiing community and as individuals, we have a responsibility to promote respect and inclusivity in all aspects of our lives. The use of inappropriate languages, such as “fat skis” has no place in our community, and we should all work towards creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all skiers.

In conclusion, I urge the editors of Unofficial Networks to reconsider the use of the term “f*t skis” in their publication and to use more appropriate and respectful language. By doing so, we can help create a more positive and inclusive skiing community that welcomes all individuals, regardless of their size or body shape.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
