One college athlete’s perfect response to being called “fag*ot”
Meet Voight Demeester, ace hockey player and a senior at Penn State.
In the below video from Davey Wavey, Demeester recounts what it’s like being called a “faggot” by an opponent; a situation he faced last Saturday.
After Demeester alerted the referee about the scuffle, the incident was reported to the Penn State Altoona captain and coach. (The opponent was from a satellite campus, Penn State Altoona.)
Talking to OutSports, Demeester says, “In the moment I was disappointed for the fact that they represent Penn State.”
But at the same time it fueled my fire in a way that drove me to play better the rest of the game. I started hitting a lot more because I wanted this ‘faggot’ to beat them.”
