Mini rant about the "Women's Zone" of the gym
10-20-2007 09:24 AM
I am in a gym for the first time in...like forever. I have trained at home for the last 5 years or so.
I want an "all me" section of the gym.
I really dislike sharing my 'special' time with anyone, male or female. It has been much much more than a physical thing for me. It is my therapy, less the couch and tissues. There is only room enough for the 3 of me in those sessions

Some of the dudes at my gym practically walk over and sniff the pads of the machines the women were just on. To stare and ogle for longer than say 3 seconds is just rude. If it's because you like what you see then there is nothing wrong with saying so in a respectful way and believe it or not, doing so may even get you some action because you weren't like every other diddler in the place.

Binging on Pure ****ing Rage
You're living in a patriarchal society which devalues the labour and perceptions of women and delimits their possible contributions regardless of ability and intelligence. Even so, you're going to take that much umbrage with a few women having an exclusive part of the gym, or exclusive gyms?......Really?

I was pissed when my gym first got a room like that, because if were paying the same rate we should get the same stuff, but once you notice that most of the women that walk out of there exceed what Arnold could bench in his prime, its not a bad idea.
They could balance this out by making a "freak zone." Dumbbells over the 120 that we have now. That way anyone who uses them wont be looked at as if they were dripping blood from their mouth.

Imagine if the roles are reversed, and there was a men only portion of the gym. I garintee there would raving crazy butch looking dykes out the front waving banners and screaming sexual discrimination. Its reverse discrimination and the activists who rally against it don't care because its against men.

I don't have a problem with this and I can understand it. There are some creepy bastards at the gym sometimes.

Having a Womans Only section of the gym serves the greater good. Firstly, it gets more woman into the co-ed gyms and allows them the freedom to perform all the exercises they desire without being intimidated by the aggressive, savage men roaming the free-weight rack.
In turn, they work harder and more frequently, creating better looking females for all of us to meet, court and etc....

I don't see a huge problem with this aside from the facts that it could potentially subtract from the budget of the gym to maintain and upgrade the equipment in the "general population" part of the gym.. if they want to seclude themselves and cause a big fuss about it then whatever, it seems to be a decision for the gym owners and managers.
But one thing I do wanna ask about is to the women who don't like to be stared at and oogled -- what happens when lesbians start working out in the all ladies section?
I have a few friends that are gay and are actualy really forward with their sexuality. Is it more comfortable for a girl to have a girl stare her up and down as opposed to a guy?
Although I in no way advocate an all male part of a gym, I know if that were to come to terms for similar reasons (which I really doubt it ever will) I would be way creeped out/uncomfortable/slightly pissed if some gay guys started eyein me up. So all in all, it might seem like an all girls portion eliminates the staring and all that noise but only to the degree of male towards female -- not female towards female! And then just try to seperate the rooms into homosexual women and heterosexual women and see if you don't get beaten to death with protest stakes!
This site is relevant to my interests.
