Been on this mudball for 69 years tomorrow. Long enough to notice how things have changed. There are so many things but I will refrain from mentioning all of them so that others can talk about this. What bought this on you ask? No, you didn't ask. Well, I will tell you anyway. This morning I saw an ad here on Talkbass that said, "Bring your gym home" the accompanying photo was of a woman working out. I have seen more and more women come into the gyms. There was a time when it was at least 95% men in the gym, maybe more. I also see more women, running, cycling and other types of working out. More and more marketing of exercise equipment targets women. I have mixed feelings about this. I am glad that women are working at being physically fit and welcome them to the gym. Makes things more interesting. I also see fathers, grandfathers, uncles with their young women and young men in the gym. What I haven't see YET is Women with youngsters working out at the gym. On the other hand it concerns me that this may be one more type of pressure for women to conform to societies standards of beauty. Don't understand all this like a women could but I know that pressure is real. We men have it too, but not at the same level as our sisters. What changes have you noticed in your lifetime. I hope this doesn't turn into a rant about how everything is going to hell these days. I see some very positive changes. One hopeful thing is we can have good conversations in ways that we haven't in the past. I'm also glad that some of us are eating healthier and avoiding tuna noodle casserole. Could be why men in my family is living longer than my father's generation. He died at 71-years-old and my uncle died at 65-years-old. Had to be the TNC.
