SO WHY do girls need to go to the gym? I like soft. Girls are soft. Girls gone to the gym are not soft. I do not like.
How am I supposed to use you as a pillow if you get all hard? Or what about if I accidentally bump into you in a hallway, I don't want to feel this huge muscled monster bumping into me. I want to feel this cute little soft girl go poof! Then I pick her back up feeling kind of bad that I smashed into the poor little soft girl. Plus there's obviously no need to train yourself physically in terms of self defense since MEN exist, we do all the self-defending for you.
So girls, I have a proposition. Stop going to the gym, and we men will do our best to be extremely sensitive and loving, and we'll treat you like queens.
My purposes in asking this question were numerous.
1. How do women respond to a predetermined social image of them?
- Some legitimized the image of the soft women, while simultaneously defending the gym.
- Some attacked the image.
- Some said the image was due to the gym.
2. Do stereotypes of women exist among men?
- Surprisingly, the overwhelming response was in the negative. Most men defended the women. Good job.
- Some did, directly.
- Some didn't and just insulted me.
- Some did indirectly.
4. Why do women go to the gym?
- For confidence.
- For fitness and wellbeing.
Thank you all for participating in my survey. Yes, it was deliberately worded as such. Yes, you all did very well.
The response has been... amusing.
A very good day to you all.

Girls go to the gym because exercise isn't just about looking tiny and muscely. Exercise has major health benefits. It makes it so you can sleep better, concentrate better, remember better. There is a correlation between exercise and decreasing the likelihood of acquiring dementia or alzheimers. Girls go to the gym because looking all soft and lovely doesn't come as easy as you make it sound. Some of us have to work to keep that soft hourglass figure that you men are conditioned to look for because of evolution. Plus, some of us actually like to exercise. We like the endorphins just as much as you men do. There's nothing about consistent exercise that is going to make a once soft girl, hard and uncomfortable. If you can't handle girls being at the gym, then hit the road and take a run.
