Is your spin class too young, too thin and too white?

She’s often the only fat woman in the room as well, she says. And if you’re looking for a mature crowd, you’ll have to keep looking, too: By the health club association’s reckoning, the average age of studio exercisers is 30.

“The messaging,” says Stanley, “is essentially: You’re allowed in this space if you are white, slender, able-bodied and less than 45, cis-gender and heterosexual. And if you’re not, then you’re not welcome.”

Just finished the article. It seems to be a fairly well written but overall fairly uninteresting piece in the Style section of WaPo. I struggle to see anything of substance to comment about, or more broadly, why this was even posted.



What is the point of this? You don't even provide any opinion of your own.

I think the point is that there are too many people of color in the USA, and they feel entitled to take over everything.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That is such a white trash thing to say.

So true. 



Did you even read the article? It's an article about how high prices and marketing material sets up certain expectations for the participants. And how those expectations can make who shows up a different story. It is actually an interesting, decently written article. But I guess let's just cut out the parts that sound crazy with no context

Seriously, how am I the only one who notices that's super racist?
