Turns out that it is totally true. The part that bothers me isn't that they don't allow activity in their gym, they have that right. No, what bothers me is the pussification of our nation! Notice the language, the "animals" can go lift in a gym and the "people" can work out here. Seriously? Lifting heaving things, being strong, and being aggressive is so terrifying to these walking estrogen factories that they've banned it? That any self respecting lifter would lift there is shocking to me. And why, pray tell, isn't this hate language??
Now, I'm a big lifter, and a chick. I deadlift (which isn't allowed in these "fitness" places) and in the process I grunt (it's genetic, the Six does it too) so I can tell you with a thread of knowledge that this place would be a sucky place to lift. Shockingly I don't want to be intimidated and harassed either, yet if I grunt in here I get the humiliation of being thrown out? And they call the heavy lifters douches.
Well, darn... Can't lift here cause I grunt, can't go to restaurant cause I have kids. Huh. Anyone else tired of taking the blame for all bad things because they're, well, normal??
