If the YMCA Lets 2 Husbands Get the Family Rate, It’ll Have to Give It to Man-Goat ‘Families’ Too

Mark Maxwell and Timothy Young have two adopted kids, with a third on the way, and they’d like the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina to give them the $81 price that husband-and-wife families get, instead of the $111 fee it’ll cost them for their non-recognized family to go. Listen. If two middle-aged homosexual men promise not to wear Speedos at the YMCA pool, give them the damn family discount rate. [Winston-Salem Journal]

    They took the Y and the M out of YMCA, why not the C?

    “If two middle-aged homosexual men promise not to wear Speedos at the YMCA pool…”

    Must you insult someone in EVERY single article?

    My partner and I live in TN…at the heart of the Bible Belt. They just changed their policy last year and allow us to use the family discount. This policy will change, too, I just hope it’s sooner than later.

    The YMCA near me, where I have been a member for 10+ years, proudly accepts family memberships from any couple as long as they live together. It is a comfortable, clean, very well equipped gym with an incredible community feel about it. It has been so much more fun to exercise daily since I left the spandex pretty-boy gym and joined this community asset.

    @Human: No one should wear speedos, especially two middle-aged homosexuals. Now a cute box cut bath suit is a different story. PEACELUVNBWILD!

    There should be a law where one must show proof of age prior to purchasing speedos, anyone over the age of 30 should be prohibited. There are waaaay too many sights that should be left unseen! : o

    @terrwill: Terrwill darling your specified age limit of 30 is age-ist or arbitrary or something. At age 40 I turned heads in my speedo and it wasn’t because of “waaaay too many sights . . .” But usually I love your comments.
