What point? Being a dick?

That's up to you to figure out.

Well it's very annoying and totally derailed the thread.

And by complaining about it long after it's passed, you're really bringing the thread back on track.



Gotta love those who just bitch about a situation. Then, the publications that are all to happy to convey their message as if there is any validity in it.

If you really want to do something, how about you take the risk to purchase/rent your own studio, then you can advertise it how you want and price the classes how you want. More than likely, you'll discover once you can't pay the rent/taxes, you have to jack up the prices. Then, when your studio isn't filled with whatever color you prefer to be in it, you'll start advertising to appeal to another crowd.

Freaking SJWs just need to enter the real world, instead of trying to mercilessly bend it to their image, trying to take down all those who stand in their way.

In the very first paragraph, the writer talks about becoming a teacher and later speaks about how she started her own company, and it also talks about another African American/Hispanic woman who owns a studio, sooooo.....?

you don't have to give your opinion in a case like this where the proposition is inherently ludicrous and, therefore, the conclusion is fairly obvious

Well, the forum rules seem to indicate that they prefer people not just posting news, they want people to give their input.

lol, that's about as SJW as you can get. Combing the forum rules for a reason to attack someone posting an article that you disagree with. Fits a pattern of your other postings.

Ah nice, I see a new challenger has approached me.

No you derailed the thread by complaining about a post being racist. Why did you feel the need to do that? Virtue signalling?



The fact that she feels uncomfortable in all white workout studios is racist in itself. Imagine a thin, white woman complaining how she's the only thin, white woman in an all black studio? People wouldnt take kindly to it. We're all just PEOPLE, it shouldnt matter what they look like or who they like.

"the point is that the culture around these courses are dominated by a specific in-group"

like people that are fit and active or have being fit and active as their endgoal? wouldn't that be expected?

Like people who do not fit within that specific in-group, which does include those who are fit and extends beyond that. The article spells that out pretty clearly.

And would it be expected for an exercise program to cater primarily to people who are already fit? I don't think so. I mean, I don't know where you live, but around me, the gym advertisements I always hear emphasize how the environment isn't just for fitness buffs in order to create an environment where everybody feels comfortable.

This only is a problem for people that need to see others of their own size, race, gender, age and orientation to feel comfortable. Racists, ageists,   and a bunch of other -ists that want their environment to resemble themselves.

Then what the hell is the point of complaining about it, if they did do something?  It really only reveals their own racism.

Exactly.
