Woman raging as uncomfortable man stops gym workout to ask her to wear bra

A fitness fan was fuming when a fellow gym-goer told her to wear a bra.

The 25-year-old took to Reddit to say a stranger interrupted her workout to say “your nipples are showing”.

On the Am I The A***hole forum, she explained: "I f***ing hate wearing bras. They're uncomfortable, constricting, and expensive.

“With work from home, I spent the last year and a half basically never wearing a bra and got used to it. Quite frankly, my boobs are nonexistent anyways.

"I recently started going to the gym again and started working out braless.

“I should note that up until now, no one has ever pointed out anything wrong with me not wearing a bra.”

According to the Mirror, she continued: “However, in the middle of a set of squats (yes, MID SQUAT), a guy comes up to me, taps me on the shoulder to get my attention, and tells me that my nipples are poking through my shirt.

“I get really irritated because why is this guy staring at my nipples in the first place and then stopping me mid-set to inform me?

"I get really annoyed, try to finish my set, but then this f***er literally grabs the bar, as I ascend and re-racks it for me.

“He claimed it looked like I was having trouble with the last rep, and that he had come over to make sure I could do it, then noticed my nipples…

"He said he was going to spot me, but then noticed my chest and thought it'd be inappropriate.”

The Redditor added: "I pointed out that the safety bar was set, so even if I did fail the set, he wasn't needed. But he just insisted people at gyms look out for each other, and that going forward,

“I should probably wear a bra so other people wouldn't get uncomfortable and that it may help me stay more balanced in my squats.

"I'm literally the only girl at the weights section of the gym at the moment, and other guys who were squatting and failed sets never have to worry about this s***.

“I've seen guys fail multiple sets in a row and no one ever rushes to their aid, but I have a very slight pause, and everyone thinks I need rescuing.

“So I'm now really annoyed and also kind of uncomfortable that this guy I've never spoken to in my life thinks he's helping me and then has the audacity to tell me how to dress.

"So I tell him 'You have bigger boobs and nipples than I do. Maybe YOU should wear a bra so people won't get uncomfortable and you won't fail your squats.’”

The comment sent the gym-goer into a fury, which left the woman questioning whether or not she’s in the wrong.

She admitted: “He then got really defensive, saying he was just trying to help, then called me a b***h.

“Honestly, I'm not sure if I overreacted, but I'm still kind of p***ed off so maybe that's clouding my judgment. Am I the a***hole?”

More than 2,000 people have since responded to her post, sharing their thoughts and supportive messages.

One person wrote: "Not the a***hole. Report it to your gym, he had no right to comment on your body at all, and no right to try and assert his 'help' onto you, if he can't control himself from staring at another person's body then he shouldn't be at a place where he's going to encounter all manner of bodies."

Another said: "It is not our job to control men’s thoughts and actions. They need to do it no matter what we are wearing, what we are doing, where we are. (Vice versa for us.)"

A third replied: "I’ve interrupted someone at the gym once, and it was because she was locking her knees out on a leg press and looked like she was struggling hard on each rep. Outside of safety, I see no reason to interrupt someone’s workout. I might ask if they got it if they are struggling, but most of the time I’m in my own bubble. I’m there to workout not socialise."
