A local university recently banned women from wearing any body-baring workout clothing in the school's fitness center. The reason? Apparently a feminist group in Sweden published a report that says a majority of people claimed they didn't get a rewarding a workout when some of the women working out wore "sexy clothing". The contadictions in this are almost too many to count. The reaon most people work out is so they look and feel better. So why would it make sense to hide one's success at this? The report doesn't say why a majority of people react to beauty with resentment and self-loathing instead of the desire to attain it for themselves, or why on earth such people would want to work out in the first place. One also has to wonder what reward these people are hoping for if looking and feeling better are repulsive to them. But the most sobering thing about this is that a progressive institution of learning in the modern world would choose to ban beauty, especially when it's more and more clear that such institutionalized hatred of beauty is what causes anorexia and other eating disorders. If we lose our ability to admire a sexy woman, in the gym or on the beach, we need to search our selves for the flaw, not try to prevent admiration.
