Oh please. In my article I made, maybe, two comments that would be related to men looking at me. One was in relation to my choice of footwear. I mentioned it because I actually had a guy tell me that maybe I should wear “real shoes “to the gym. Everything else is based on actual comments that were made to me at the gym. Being pissed off at some dude who assumes I’m not there for a serious work out is totally appropriate.

You telling me that I exaggerated the story has no more merit than me saying that I think you’re a little butt hurt by the fact that I can dead lift you. You have no grounds. You are not me. You don’t know my experiences. You have no idea what it’s like to go to the gym as a woman. Or, maybe you do. Maybe you’re trans. I have no idea.

All I know is there are a lot of comments on this post from women who have felt the exact same way I have. I assume they’re all lying too.

Pound sand, dude.
