22-year-old woman kicked out of gym over 'revealing' crop top that 'distracted' men

A 22-year-old woman says she was asked to leave her gym in Constance, Germany because her clothes were too “revealing” and were “confusing the men.” Marny tweeted a photo of the “revealing” outfit showing that she was wearing a crop top that showed a few inches of skin. 

“I felt like I had been thrown back into the 1800s,” she told the Evening Standard.

She explained that a female gym employee came up to her while she was on the treadmill and told her she “she couldn’t train like this.” Not knowing what she was referring to, Marny said she just looked at the woman in confusion. The woman then told her it was against gym policy for women to work out in only a sports bra and for men to work out in tank tops, adding that her top was “distracting” other gym-goers.

“I was shocked, because it wasn’t a sports bra. And even if it was, why not?” she told the Evening Standard.

People online were outraged by her story, encouraging her to “name and shame” the gym.

Laws You Didn't Know You Were Breaking
You'd be amazed at some of the wacky ordinances still on the books around the country. (If you don't believe us, just try puttying nail holes in Schenectady, New York, on a Sunday.) We went looking for some of the strangest laws that affect homeowners, and here's what we found. Read 'em and learn 'em -- or risk the clink.
+ Home Improvement Tips
More From This Old House:
Forget about using a dish towel in the state of Oregon or in Minneapolis. Letting china air-dry is the only allowable way.
In Florida, you're in trouble if you shatter more than three dishes per day, or chip the edges of more than four cups and/or saucers. If you get your kicks tossing plates, don't try it from any window above the ground floor of a house or apartment in Freeport, Illinois.
In Kansas, you can't stack plates more than eight high.
More From This Old House:
Watch out for gangs of rug beaters on the streets of San Francisco between midnight and 8 a.m, the only hours one is permitted to beat a rug on the sidewalk in that city. You're safer in Port Jervis, New York, where the law prohibits "the spreading of a carpet or rug on any city street," at any time.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, doesn't legislate what you can do with your rug outdoors, but indoors, it's a crime to sweep dirt under it.
California requires "housewives" to boil their dust rags or risk jail time.

Clotheslines are a great way to conserve energy -- unless it's winter in Los Angeles, when women aren't allowed to dry their unmentionables in public.
More From This Old House:
Lawmakers in the state of Virginia and in Canton, Ohio, must not want their citizens to bathe: Indoor tubs are against the law. Don't head to Portland, Oregon, for relief, either. While you can have an indoor tub there, you'll have to use it while wearing "suitable clothing... that which reaches from the bather's neck to his knees and completely covers the body." You can be cited for "dozing or snoozing" in the tub in Detroit.
More From This Old House:
You may not sleep in, or on top of, a refrigerator in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
You can't sleep with your shoes on in North Dakota.
You can't snore with the windows open in Massachusetts.

“What are the men confused about?? Have they never seen a woman before?!” one woman commented.

“That’s too revealing? Do you live in mormon country or something? The only way that is too revealing is by the standards of 100 years ago,” another person wrote.

Marny, however, tweeted that she didn’t want to call out the gym by name because it’s a small, local business.

“My one goal was for people to actually see that these things still happen today and that it’s important to pay attention to that,” she wrote

She does plan to cancel her membership, though.
