A plea to the 40-some year old woman at the Y: Would you please refrain from parading around the women's locker room naked? We all know women's locker rooms are a safe space for showering, dressing, changing, what have you. It is not a space of judgment or insecurity, but a female haven where we can feel good about ourselves for our effort to better our own bodies. We might even feel the same bond that men do - you know how they smack each other's butts with towels. Heck, I'm good with throwing out the occasional "you go, girl!" as well.
But for the sake of my own insecurity and uncomfortablness in experiencing this woman's pride in her appearance, and for allowing others to enjoy the safe space of the locker room - I have to ask, what is proper locker room etiquette these days?
