: Maybe you can explain the term "fruit booters" to me? I have the impression that it is disrespectful, but why?

"Fruit booters" was a term coined in the 70's. It had a lot to do with the lavish or "gay looking" outfits a lot of the roller disco skaters would wear. In North America people in general have a tendency to put down others who don't look or follow the norm. You folks in Europe are a lot more "anything goes" than we are.
