Woman calls out gym for being asked to leave for showing too much skin

A woman has posted online about reportedly being asked to leave the gym because her workout outfit showed “three inches of waist”, suggesting that this shows that “double standards and sexism still exists.”

“Today I was told I’d have to leave the gym if I didn’t put a shirt on with no explanation,” Julia Maren, from Tennessee in the US, wrote on her Instagram page. 

“My workout was interrupted and I was told to take out my headphones for someone to tell me they could “get me a shirt if I need one” and that if I wanted to continue my workout I had to put one on…. WHAT?!”

Maren did not name the gym in question but went on to further outline the differing experience that men face while in the gym.

She cited research by Fitness Magazine that found 65 per cent of women avoid the gym from fear of being judged while only 36 per cent of men report feeling this way.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.

“So you’re telling me that because three inches of my waist is exposed that I’m not welcome in the gym but meanwhile f**king Chad is over there with a cutout that shows his whole nipple? Got it,” she posted. “Thank you for taking time out of your day to let me know that double standards and sexism still exists. If the problem is that I will be a distraction, why isn’t the accountability on the one who is distracted?”

Maren also argued that these double standards and “policing of women’s bodies” go way deeper than just gym apparel, pointing out the differences in expectations between men and women from a young age.
