Added DiffLines:

* OneWordTitle: It's from an insult for skater girls used by the male skaters.

Added DiffLines:

An Creator/{{HBO}} series which follows ''Film/SkateKitchen'' with the same main cast, ''Betty'' revolves around an all-female group of skate boarders as they go about their daily lives in New York City. This includes conflict with the male-dominated skating scene, heartbreaks over love, and other issues.

!Examples:
* ButchLesbian: Kirt, a very tomboyish female skate boarder who's TheLadette and a lesbian. While she has long hair, otherwise she has a very masculine clothing style and acts like a frat bro.
* CastTheExpert: All of the protagonists are real skate boarders, playing fictional versions of themselves and doing their own stunts.
* ClosetGay: Honeybear is a closeted queer girl (although she rejects even the idea of being closeted, along with any specific LGBT+ identity, but seems to be into women along with men).
* HairTriggerTemper: Kirt has one, as her friends rebuke her for when her blowing up at a guy gets them arrested (she runs off before the cops come).
* HighClassCallGirl: Indigo decides to become one after learning she can make a lot of money that way, going on “dates” with rich men.
* TheLadette: Kirt acts and dresses like a frat bro, with an exaggerated boyish style. She fits right in while instructing a bunch of boys on how to treat women better.
* LingerieScene: Janey, Indigo and Honeybear all strip down to their underwear when visiting a pool (they didn't have swim suits, as it was impromptu-they're only speaking to a girl there).
* LipstickLesbian: The femme girl who Kirt dates always has makeup, girly clothing and acts in a feminine way.
* MasculineFeminineGayCouple: Kirt dates a very femme girl, while she's a ButchLesbian herself.
* NippleAndDimed: Honeybear has star pasties covering her nipples, but otherwise usually has no bra. This seems to just be the character's and actress's style, as it's actually legal in New York City for women to go topless completely.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Honeybear isn't called by her legal name in this series (''Film/SkateKitchen'' showed it was Ruby).
* RapeAsBackstory: It turns out that Janey had been raped by a friend of hers, but she's initially reluctant to admit this, angrily confronting another young woman who accused him but then realizes he'd done the same thing with her.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Honeybear frequently goes around with her shirt open and no bra underneath, only having pasties covering her nipples, with total casualness.
* ShrinkingViolet: Honeybear is very shy and reserved (though ironically she also dresses in a very revealing way). When skate boarding once, she sings via voiceover about wanting to have her breasts free.
* TomboyishName: Kirt, a ButchLesbian, has this. It's probably intentional that her name is almost like “Kurt” (that exact spelling was used in ''Film/SkateKitchen'', though for some reason it changed here).
* AThreesomeIsHot: Honeybear goes to bed with her girlfriend and a female bartender they like.
* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The series is loosely based on the main cast's lives, who all play fictional versions of themselves.
