    Yep. They got ripped off and should get their money back.


    And $1400 for a lifetime membership? Damn, I need something like that!

    Jesus. How about we just let the whole world return to patriarchy. You want to practice a restrictive, oppressive religion, then be my guest- but do it at home.

    Wow.


    Anyway, yes if they were promised their gender only days then they should get a refund, you have to remember the USA doesnt have a national religion, so they cannot be "forced" to go along with it.

    But the sad thing is if they didnt get it in writing then they wont get a dime back.

    :werd: they joined for that reason and didn't even think to see if it was in the contract. Be smarter next time. And i'm sure the muslim community isn't large enough to make a serious impact in lifetime's business, nor other local businesses.

    Technically they still have their gender-segregated days, there's just a new section that is open to everyone all the time.

    I just have a hard time having sympathy for anyone of any religion who wants to hold onto antiquated, out-moded beliefs in today's society.

    This issue isn't exactly about their religion.. they were promised certain conditions upon signing their membership agreements and the gym is changing those conditions. The solution is fairly simple, refund them the unused portion of their membership fee :dunno:.

    +1.

    The women were under the impression that certain conditions would be met, as stated when they signed up. Those conditions are not being met, therefore they should get a refund.

    It is all quite simple.

    VERBAL promises....that means they have no obligation to do what they said they would. It's shitty but thats the way the law works, if they dont like it they can go back to the oppressive nation they came from.


    Secondly, the whole muslim "dress code" is fucking retarded, showing more skin then just your face doesnt make you trash. Either integrate like my ancestors did or GTFO.

    this aint the main forum and she is right....



    If I was a member at that gym and told I couldnt lift there on certain days because of a bunch of dumb bitches I'd take my money elsewhere.

    Verbal promises can also bind contracts.
