Men, Just Quit Going To Gyms

When I first tried to begin writing this blog post article, I went into too much detail trying to explain my personal background and history in weight lifting, starting from when I was 10 years old, then into high school, college, and in all of the different towns and states where I had lived. In order to not waste so much time, I decided that I only really needed to convey a few main points of my experience:

  1. In Florida where I was born and grew up in the 1970s-1980s, most boys and young men had an interest in lifting weights that went along with wanting to play football, basketball, wrestling, or join the military after high school.
  2. In my experience, most boys and young men were motivated and eager to use their cheap Sears/JC Penny/K-Mart $75-$100 home weight bench sets that they had in their basement, garage, or backyard.
  3. Poor underprivileged white kids and black kids had just as much enthusiasm, maybe even more, than kids from affluent families when it came to weightlifting.  Weight lifting had absolutely nothing to do with money or pretentiousness, but what an individual could actually personally do.
  4. The first commercial gyms in the town where I grew up, which was near Daytona, in the 1970s-1980s, these were weight lifting, power lifting, body building gyms.  These gym members were young men and adult men who had started weight lifting as kids, using cheap home weight sets, and had continually progressed.
  5. Through high school, college, and as a young adult 1980s-1990s, I remember a very strong competitiveness amongst people who lifted weights and did bodybuilding, that was beneficial, motivating, and had no or very little animosity, partly because each person’s lifts, physical results, or personal effort, spoke for themselves.
  6. Beginning in the 2000s, across the World there began a transformation in the business model of gyms, where it was thought that weight lifting/power lifting/body building gyms had limited membership potential, whereas “Fitness Centers” had the potential to attract the most number of people.
  7. “Fitness Center” gyms attracted men and women of all ages, all levels of health, for hundreds of different reasons.
  8. By 2010, in my experience, in almost every gym that I went to, the strong motivation/enthusiasm/competitiveness of weight lifters, power lifters, and bodybuilders was completely gone.  It was replaced with the distraction and hindrance of equipment “dabblers”, equipment “wanderers”, texters, trophy-wives, bored restless teenagers, “Karens”, and attention seeking twats.

Here is the TikTok video that caused me to write this blog post article:

The young woman who made this TikTok video, she is complaining about, “Some creepy old guy looking at her.” Without even starting the video, I can see why the old guy was looking at her. If this woman were at the beach, a swimming pool, a shopping mall, playing volleyball, playing basketball, taking a dance class, this guy would probably look at her in these situations as well.

However, if this same old guy were at a park, and there was a good skateboarder, acrobatic kite flyer, frisbee player, basketball player, dog trainer, guitar player, he would probably watch them too. It just so happened at this gym at that moment, that this young lady was interesting to look at. If there would have been a more attractive lady in the gym at the time, he probably would have looked at the more attractive lady.

If there would have been a great big powerlifter at this gym bench pressing 500 lbs, or squatting 700 lbs, people would have stopped what they were doing and watched, and the powerlifter would have had no problem with people watching him, because it’s interesting.

Is this complaint really about an old guy watching a young lady in a gym, that this is inappropriate, or is this about a young lady feeling vulnerable and uncomfortable because of the outfit that she has worn to the gym? If this young lady had worn baggy sweatpants and a baggy sweatshirt, would it have mattered to her if someone was watching her? Would anyone watch her if she had worn baggy clothes instead?

Do men wear thin, skin-tight, body contour-hugging tights, with bare skin mid-sections to the gym? I have never, ever seen this. So, why do women wear skin-tight, body contour-hugging, bare skin mid-section tights to the gym? Is it because these women are seeking attention? Is the real answer that women dress in attention-seeking provocative outfits in order to get attention, and if men that they like notice them that’s good, otherwise when men that they don’t like look at them they go into attention-getting “victim mode”, “unwanted sexualization mode”, “sexual harassment mode”.

If men have any sense, they will just let women have every gym to themselves, and instead buy weight training and exercise equipment to use at home. Nothing good is going to happen from going anywhere that women act like this, and make accusations.

Have Women Caused The End Of Bars, Nightclubs, Gyms, And Marriage?

Lately I have seen some articles, blog posts, and vlogs expressing some ideas that I agree with concerning women, and mentioning other ideas about women that I had not thought about or considered.

Eight months ago I wrote a blog post about women ruining a small weight room gym that I began going to in Dickinson.  I deliberately went to this gym which was only about 1,500 square feet, instead of the more than 40,000 square foot West River Community Center in Dickinson, in order to avoid women and the problem of women getting in the way at the gym.

After I wrote my blog post about women ruining the small gym, just like they ruined the weight lifting area at the West River Community Center, I received many reader comments saying that I was the one who had the problem, that I should just work out at home.

Now, I have recently been seeing that there are hundreds of articles and video blogs about women ruining gyms, that are nearly identical to what I wrote.  Universally, the complaints are that even though there are “women only” gyms, and good gyms for women, that women will seek out gyms and weight rooms that were intended for men, in order to get in the way, be a distraction, and try to get attention.

To the hundreds of articles and video blogs about women ruining gyms, male readers left hundreds of comments saying essentially, “I used to go to gyms until my workouts became ruined by attention seeking women who were being a distraction and getting in the way.  I began working out at home, and now I don’t go to gyms anymore.”

I had not thought of this, or realized this, but many male readers also began leaving essentially the same comment “Bars and nightclubs are dead, and women have begun trying to use gyms in place of bars and nightclubs to get the attention of men.  Women have sought out gyms that are used primarily by men, in order to show up wearing tight yoga pants and push-up sports bras, dressing even more provocatively than they would have been allowed to at a nightclub.”

Male commentors also pointed out that “Women dressing provocatively at male gyms allows them to get the attention that they want from everyone, by constantly bending over in front of men to show their asses and boobs.  However, these same women will treat any interest from 90% of the men at gyms as harassment, for even looking at them or speaking to them.”

It was pointed out by men that “Women ruined bars and nightclubs” to where people do not go to bars and nightclubs anymore, and have caused many bars and nightclubs to go out of business.  They explained that especially in the cities, men used to go out to bars and clubs at night in order to meet and try to pick up women.  It was expected that men would offer to buy women drinks.

However, once there became several criminal cases where women and their attorneys claimed that women could not legally have given consent to have sex after having consumed alcohol, therefore they were raped by the men that they went home with, men began to realize that they could not buy women drinks in a bar and try to go home with them.  Keep in mind that even though both men and women consumed drinks in a bar or nightclub, and went home together, it was only the man who was guilty of rape because only a women was incapable of making a decision and legally not responsible after consuming alcohol, though this legal argument is not effective in removing responsibility from women in any other type of case such as DUI, assault, theft, or murder.

Men concluded that just like women ruined bars and nightclubs to where there is no point for men to go to bars and nightclubs, and many bars and nightclubs have closed, that women are ruining gyms to where gyms will begin closing too.  Men used to go to gyms to exercise and work out, but when women began showing up at gyms to try to get attention, get in the way, and accuse men of looking at them, there began to be no point in men going to gyms any longer.

Once men became forced to stop and think more about what women were doing, dressing provocatively at work and then making claims of harassment at work, then coming to gyms dressed provocatively and accusing men of looking at them, going to nightclubs to have men buy them drinks, then accusing men of raping them because they had consumed alcohol, and watching how divorce settlements worked, men began to realize that there was very little chance that they could have any involvement with women without disastrous consequences.

Why would a man want to become married to a woman, when what this means is a man paying the majority of the bills while married, buying his wife a car and a home, and then likely going through a divorce where his wife will keep the car, keep the home, and he will be forced to continue to have to pay her after the divorce.

Women are turning out to be so much trouble, that men are realizing they are better off not having anything to do with them and trying to stay away from them.
