    This was on feministing like 6 months ago.. I haven’t heard any more about it, though. I wonder if they took down the ads?

    Where was this taken at?

    As…crass as this sounds…it’d be so tempting to find one of those in my area so I could get around the whole banned-from-owning-a-scale. But somehow I doubt they’re around here, and my wife would have a fit anyway if she caught me at that.
    I know mamaV’s opinion on ‘personal responsibility’ when it comes to triggering material, but…for ‘s sake, doesn’t this cross the line?
    Two distinct viewpoints, I know, but they both occurred to me.

    This is totally stupid, the majority of people go to the gym to get fit, not skinny, and fit = muscle = heavy
    You’d think a gym would focus its advertising on fitness over weight
    And if someone doesn’t want to have their weight shown, they’d have to stand. Where’s the fairness in that?

    No more. No less.

    ….speechless. Tackiness at it’s finest.

    Fully realizing the tools available to edit photos, I was skeptical as to the validity of the above photo. I followed the link to the source MamaVision provided and was led to another blog. After I watched a video, of the women with the red jacket in the picture actually sitting on the scale on YouTube, I am less questioning.

    Oh come on, please tell me this is a joke…how humiliating and unnescesary! It just plain pisses me off

  12. .C. says:

    Yeah… I’d actually heard of this already on another blog. I just do not even know.

  13. anon says:

  14. kA says:

    I LOVE the first video on this page – http://community.livejournal.com/proanorexia/.
    Everyone should watch it.
    (Most of you have probably already seen iy. But I thought I would share it with you anyway.)

  16. Sarah says:

    aggghhh this is HORRIBLE!!!!

    WTF!? Let’s encourage that we are all defined by a number.

    If that really did happen everywhere though, I think people would eventually become accustomed to it and nobody would care anymore.
