EvilEgg: Do men get a discount?
jaylectricity: How about you just don't go to that gym?
Marcus Aurelius: What an utter douchebag.
ReapTheChaos: Question: 'Why I'm suing my gym over their sexist women-only hours'Answer: To make some quick cash.But that doesn't make for a good headline does it.
Sagus: Did I miss the political aspect of the article?
Warlordtrooper: If it were the other way around there would be an angry mob
thurstonxhowell: I bet a lot of gyms could ask if people wanted gender-specific hours and find out that a significant number of women and virtually no men did. Really, this seems like complaining that their aren't tampon vending machines in the men's room. Sure, we don't have that, but we also didn't want it.
EvilEgg: I am pretty fat and self conscious about my appearance in the gym. But if there were men only hours at the gym, I don't think that would help. I would need me only hours.
pootsie: Waaah!We poor white men are so deprived in this society!And my mommy was mean to me!Where is my white heritage month? Why do women have nicer bathrooms?! Why did my wife leave me!?!WAAAAH!
Mugato: Reminds me of that douche who sued Hooters because he couldn't be a waitress there (although that could have just been a publicity stunt).
jayhawk88: EvilEgg: Do men get a discount?Yes because you're at the gym 8300 hours a year and need those extra 442.

MyEnamine: Man rights a rational article in favor of his position, Farkers engage in ad hominem attack.
Slives: 442 hours / 365 days = about 1 hours 10 minutes a day. Which seems strange, unless it is the timing of when those women-only hours are valid. If it is something like 5:30 to 7PM every weekday, which is prime workout hours for a lot of people then I could see where it would be a problem.The other point is when did these hours start? Was the gym doing this before he became a member, so he signed up knowing there was some time that he would not be able to go? Or did this start later?While I can agree that it seems that men get the short end of the straw in quite a few cases like these, making a fight out of this one is not going to help.
spongeboob: The use of Feminazi, that is like an admission of trolling isn't it?
