These words in the Dallas Voice grabbed my attention:
"For the second time in less than a year, a popular East Dallas gym owned by Baylor Health Care System is under fire for blatantly discriminating against gay couples."
You can read the rest of the article here. The issue is that Baylor won't let a gay couple get a family membership in their Baylor Tom Landry Fitness Center because they don't think gay couples are equal to hetero couples. This is terrible, but it's not surprising that Baylor would discriminate against homos.
My husband and I had a membership to this very gym for one year; we dropped our membership because we did not utilize their facilities, but they wouldn't recognize us as a "family" either. It's annoying. It's just what we deal with in our life.
Now our "gym" money goes to a yoga studio that recognize us as a family.
