Fitness club members criticize tree with Birthright message

Oh come on. How is she making money in spite of herself?
Poor business decision? Yes.
Offended many? Yes.
Apology made? Yes. Check out their website.
Whether you believe the apology or not, its there.
Im a member, a pro-choice member, who was NOT offended. And since when is it the abortion tree?

Over and done with. She will lose some members. She will gain others. Let it go. You dont like it? Youve made your decision. You wont be back. Fine.

This back and forth and back and forth and criticizing the gym as a whole, and its equipment, and its staff...OVERKILL!

Find a better place for yourself. Damage is done. Enough already!

"Body Boutique is a anti-choice establishment."

Ahhh, the beauty of free speech - you can say those statements when you believe them to be true, even when they are not factual.

"Too bad the owner didn't pull the display at the first complaint, seeing it was going to be a problem, like removing a poster from the window that's offensive."

Actually, from what I understand, I think the owner only got one complaint - last Friday - and the tree was taken down this morning at 5am.

But lets take this opportunity to bad mouth all the practices that a particular business enforces. Thats a great idea - way to focus on the topic at hand.

Confrontation:
I have a great idea - if youre so dissatisfied with the gym and its "crappy attitude," simply dont go back. Work out on your own, where you can avoid these "religious/political engagements."

Ive noticed that Body Boutique supports numerous organizations, and I think thats great. Am I pro-choice? Yes. Was I offended? No. Get over it.

So sorry to hear you wont be renewing your membership. Im sure that will be a great loss. Maybe this is a great way to weed out people like yourself. Ahh, maybe then the other members will have less of a "crowd" to deal with.

Good riddance.
