so i’ve been doing the old keep fit thing recently and one thing has struck me that i felt like venting a little spleen about: female only classes. now, my issue is not with having these but there is no equivelant for the boys. it strikes me as sexist in the extreme. i realise that the pervasive thinking goes along the lines of ‘all men are pigs and would only join a keep fit class to ogle womens leotard clad bottoms so girls need classes on their own to protect them from all those lustful stares’ well….
firstly, this is no doubt grossly unfair to many men
secondly, even if it is not they will be sorely dissapointed as most keep fit classes around these parts are populated by slightly overweight middle aged brittish chicks sweating it out in unflattering velour tracksuit bottoms. not sexy.
thirdly, women are not angels. you try and tell me that no girl has ever ogled her hard bodied european gym insructor in his teenie tiny lycra shorts before and i won’t believe you!
fourthly, if i was a slightly overweight middle aged brittish guy sweating it out in my unflattering tracksuit bottoms i don’t know that i would want a bunch of women watching my fragile ego colapse.
there. i’m done.
