I agree completely that the policy of this club is foolish.
However, I have to take issue with "tees for me", who stated:
"It is more complicated than this but, if the gym takes your money and you are male then they must welcome you and provide equal services to you. In other word you should get the services for which you paid. However in the case of places like Tucson Country Club, they would take a woman's money then refuse her equal services and accommodations."
OK, so is this not also the case when a gym has a special "women-only" section in it? Many gyms, including national chains such as Gold's, actually advertise that most of their gyms have such a section. And yet, they charge the exact same dues for men and women! Have they not taken the man's money, but denied him equal services and accommodations?
Is this not the same thing? If you are incensed and demanding change in the case reported here, try being consistent and show similar outrage when discrimination favors your gender.
