Uma mulher falou abertamente sobre um ginásio de onde foi convidada a sair, alegadamente por estar a utilizar um top e umas leggings que expunham demasiado do seu corpo.
Julia, oriunda do Tennessee, quis chamar a atenção dos padrões duplos do estabelecimento, alegando que ela não podia utilizar aquele tipo de roupa mas que os homens podiam utilizar mangas cavas e outras roupas que também os expunham bastante…

Did you know that 65% of women actually try to avoid the gym over fear of being judged? Fitness Magazine conducted this study and in comparison, only 36% of men felt this way. Do you realize what this statistic suggests? That women are automatically more cautious about what they wear to the gym to avoid criticisms and negative comments. . . Today I was told I’d have to leave the gym if I didn’t put a shirt on with no explanation. 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?! So you’re telling me that because three inches of my waist is exposed that I’m not welcome in the gym but meanwhile fucking Chad is over there with a cutout that shows his whole nipple? Got it. 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? This is a deep rooted issue because I could EASILY talk about middle school uniform policies, prom dress codes, and evidently gym attire. When will we stop policing women’s bodies and HOLD THE OTHER’S ACCOUNTABLE FOR SEXUALIZING THEM. And WHEN will we start ALLOWING women to feel comfortable enough in the gym to wear whatever the fuck is comfortable to them in an otherwise already uncomfortable environment?! . . All I’m saying is that I’m showing up in a bro tank with my nipple out next time ✌🏻
Um trabalhador do ginásio em questão pediu a Julia que se tapasse imediatamente e que podia fazer o seu treino com uma t-shirt que eles poderiam providenciar.
Como a fotografia acima demonstra, a roupa de Julia não era mais do qeu um top preto e umas leggings subidas. De acordo com o Daily Star, a estudante foi apenas convidada a sair do ginásio e ninguém lhe deu uma justificação.
Partilhando a fotografia da roupa que levou para treinar no Instagram, ela disse:
“Hoje mandaram-me sair do ginásio se não metesse uma t-shirt sem qualquer explicação aparente. O meu treino foi interrompido e ainda me disseram que me traziam uma t-shirt ‘se eu precisasse de uma’. COMO ASSIM?”
“Estão-me a dizer que por ter um pouco de cintura à mostra não sou bem-vinda no ginásio mas os homens com mangas cavas a mostrar a parte de cima toda podem continuar a treinar enquanto lhes vemos os mamilos?”

Plant based update! 🌱 . . Two months ago I couldn’t wear these shorts because they were uncomfortable and my love handles would hang out over them – so this is an exciting step! I’ve only lost 3-4lbs, but my body composition is definitely changing drastically. I want to be sure to point this out though – my worth doesn’t change based on how these shorts fit. It is just a result of a health based experiment. . . The MAIN thing I’m excited about is how this has affected my hormones. Not to jinx anything 🤞🏻, but I had zero PMDD symptoms leading up to my last period. You guys have no idea what that means…. I feel so happy I could cry. I have so much more energy, I’m healthier, I feel better and as a result, I look better. Overall, this has just been an amazing decision for me. . . Happy Thursday and eat your plants! 🌱
