As strange as you might find it, your come-on of “are you a mind reader?…that’s lucky then” while staring at my ass is not getting me all hot’n’bothered. I know my work out leggings are awesome, but I wear them because they are super comfy, not for your pleasure. Also, when you stare at me unrelentingly from across the ellipticals, it seriously distracts me from my work out/netflix arrested development marathon. It’s not flattering, it’s not appreciated, and it’s not at all appropriate. Making a woman feel uncomfortable and unsafe is not okay anywhere, and gyms are places for personal peace, self-respect, and endorphins, not sexual harassment.

“We’re creating new leaders, and they’re not going to look like how they always did - an older, white male. They’re gonna look like women, and they’re gonna look like people of color. And that is the true reflection of this country, and of this world.”
