Finally, a guy who’s got it right

Here’s a big tip of the hat to Las Vegas Lawyer Todd Phillips, who has filed a gender bias complaint withLadies_2
the Nevada Equal Rights Commission. Todd’s problem? The gym he was touring with his wife offered her a cheaper sign-up rate as well as a special workout section for women.

More and more guys are stepping up to complain about ladies’ night laws at gyms, bars and nightclubs. And, that’s a good thing. No offense, ladies, but why should you get special breaks?

It’s been open season on guys for as long as I can remember. And it runs the gamut from tongue-in-cheek male bashing in the workplace to TV commercials and sitcoms in which the guy is almost always portrayed as a total dope. In fact, one wonders what sort of subliminal damage the latter does to young boys watching at home.

Mr. Phillips, who just happens to be a gender bias lawyer, says special ladies’ nights are just as discriminatory as ‘…a whites-only country club or whites get in free deal…’. That may be a stretch, but I do think the overall public image of men needs some burnishing. And, I’m right behind you Todd. Oh, and by the way, are you done with the elliptical trainer yet?
