Anonymous asked: Okay so in gym class my teacher was doing this thing where he was writing recommendations for this more intense "for athletes only" gym class and he asked us if we were interested in doing the class, so I decided to raise my hand to sign up and my teacher asked me what sport I played and I said swimming and he laughed at me and told my whole class & I that swimmings not a real sport. (I went off on him and ranted about how swimming is the most coveted sport in the Olympics and he needs to stfu)
