For years women in Sweden have fought to obtain equal rights, but the leaders of that gallant movement most probably never considered the issue of being allowed to sweat in the pursuit of equality. A man in Sweden entered a gym only to discover there were separate areas set aside for women to exercise and while he waited for a piece of equipment to become available for a man, the women were enjoying access to plenty of machines. Mats Mllerup argued the separate facilities for women were not “equal” and therefore he and other men suffered the consequences of paying the same money and getting less quality.
The Ombudsman ruled women needed a separate area so they would not have to endure sexual comments or approaches. What about men who are solicited by women? Huh, don’t those men deserve some protection?
