Earlier this evening, I went to Lifetime Fitness to do a short run, a few weights, and a core conditioning class. I managed to slog (slow jog) through a 4 mile run on the treadmill. I then headed to the weight area of the gym to do a couple sets of bench press/bench sit-ups. I sat on a bench next to a dude in a University of Colorado Football t-shirt and his red-shirted buddy and had to listen to the following conversation:
Red-shirt: Seen any girls here this afternoon?
CU Football: Yeah, man. There are some hot ones.
Red-shirt: How ‘bout that Asian girl that used to come here?
CU Football: You mean Asian Invasion?! I haven’t seen her in at least 6 months.
Red-shirt: Ha. She probably got an STD and died.
Red-shirt and CU Football: Idiotic chuckling.
CU Football: Yeah, there’s a couple girls here tonight.
Red-shirt: The one with the big titties?
CU: Nods knowingly and returns to benching.
Really? Girls, titties, Asian Invasion? Hilarious joke implying a woman died from her sluttiness. Fun stuff objectifying women at the gym of all places. It’s been a long time since I felt uncomfortable working out, but those bros’ made me want to get out of the gym asap.
