Fittingly Mad: WAY Too Much Testosterone in the Weight Room

OK so I know that men like to bulk themselves up and pump iron. I get that. What I don't get is why it seems that some men, who are normally complete gentlemen in any other situation, can turn into testosterone breathing buffoons as soon as they hit the weight room floor. It's as if all manners are left at the door and the term ladies first is completely forgotten.

Here is the thing fellas, we're not competing with you. Most of us women only use 15 pound weights, while you struggle with the big man 50 pounders. It's not like I am trying to cut your man time short -- all I am asking is that you put down that freaking newspaper and let me use the bench while you're breaking between sets. Whether you like it or not more and more women are doing weight training now too, so don't act all shocked to see a woman in there with you.

Oh yeah, and fellas, it'd be great if you could stop looking at my butt when I do dead-lifts. Thanks.
