I'm a woman (female) and sometimes men at the gym will touch my arm to ask me if I'm using equipment/weights that I'm clearly not using, or to tell me they're done with their set if I've been waiting. It feels wrong and I never see them doing it to other men. Am I overreacting?

    Do you use headphones whilst working out? Dont answear if you are a woman it is a yes. Would they touch you without headphones? It will reduce it by a little. Do they touch you because you are a woman? Definitely.

        You don't see them doing it to other men because they don't touch each other. They're doing exactly what you think they are doing. Wear one earbud instead of headphones or don't use them at all. Call them out on their bullshit, loud enough for other people to hear. Shame works wonders for moderating behavior.

    Are you 1,000 lbs? Sometimes it's hard not to touch someone if they're extremely large in a confined space like a gym.

    Otherwise I would say "What the frick are you doing, don't fricking touch me" and if they said anything but sorry interrupt them with "Shut the frick up and go away". Then escalate as needed, like kick them or get help.

      I think if I'm not wearing headphones at all, it will men think I want to be approached and talked to though. I used to wear earbuds that were covered by my hair and way more guys came up to me back then.

      I give off an unfriendly (autistic) aura. Nobody ever touches me.

      So do I! People tell me I have a resting b***h face all the time so I don't know how to deter them if my angry looking face isn't enough.

      Say " don't touch me" .if they keep touching you, tell the front desk. If you feel in danger change gyms. It's literally that easy. I'm assuming you're in the civilized world, if so doesn't matter if you're a femcel, incel, or something in between its just that easy.

      You're right, I just wasn't sure if it would be an overreaction on my part to say "don't touch me" if they're not outright groping my ass.

            So you go to a public gym and you're annoyed people talk to you?
            Well here's a fix, I had the same issues, so I bought a home gym.
            Of course, you won't do that, because you're not actually dedicated or truly interested in fitness, and despite loudly signalling your annoyance online, the only real reason you go to a gym in the first place is to garner as much male attention as possible, because you are a woman, therefore you are incapable of developing true self-esteem insulated from the gaze of others.
            This entire thread is pointless babble and serves only to serve your ego in a false "woe is me" type of way. You're pretty pathetic if this is the first space you come to in order to get this kind of affirmation and validation. You must be a loser and not very attractive, and on top of that you've got a c**t of an attitude.

              Why are yes men sucking your dick for being triggered into an incel seethe by me feeling uncomfortable in the gym? I guess this board really is 90% gay men. Women aren't at the gym, or anywhere else, for your attention. The exception to this is sex workers, and that's only because they want your money. The idea that women do things for male attention is just your fantasy and projection. You would be shocked if you knew just how little you, specifically, were cared about.

              Im going to keep doing that and keep death staring women, when I'm around, foids will never ever feel safe.

              I wouldn't feel unsafe if you death stared me, I'd most likely just wonder if you were constipated.

                You however, were just talked to by a different guys which while annoying isnt the end of the world. Imagine how much interaction those guys get, nobody gives a frick about them.

                Most problems women have are a side effect of a being treated like the holy grail. They are coveted so much they can be as moronic as this b***h and men will still want to talk to her or touch her for any reason. I agree that women getting harassed is bad. Im just tired of it all, the fault is on both sides because all these mentally ill hoes and overprivelleged b***hes(op) were created by men and the society men made.

      You’re in a very hard spot, your desperation is probably palpable, and scares off potential partners. You don’t want to just go for a “practice b***h“ because what you clearly want is a companion. You don’t want to just go for a fat/ugly b***h either, They will not make for a good companion, and you’ll only feel disgusted with yourself afterwards. Different strokes for different folks, it may help if you get a pet that you can cuddle, it may help to build a body pillow with arms, it may help to continue your search for a real partner, but put yourself in more public, social areas to desensitize you a little bit so you don’t come off as desperate. The pillow thing works pretty well though.

        If you don't care about the whole social aspect of the gym, you could consider doing some sort of calisthenics routine at home combined with a pair of dumbbells.
        Ideally what you need is a place to do pull ups, a door anchor with some sort of rope to do rows, you probably have kitchen counter where you can do dips and having some dumbbells is really useful.
        Something like this wouldn't cost you much at all and doesn't take much space.

    There's nothing more innocuous than a tap on the shoulder to get someone's attention (especially in a context where it's 90% certain that OP has headphones). If it bothers you, politely tell them you don't like being touched. You'd see that they'd apologise, but you'de rather b***h about it on the internet without giving people the benefit of the doubt
    I hope you're Finnish or some other moronic place like that and that it's in your culture to be averse to human contact otherwise this entire thread is just a big embarrassment for everyone flipping their shit about a little tippy tap.

          You aren’t overreacting. You are doing nothing and that is the appropriate reaction. Some people are just annoying, but don’t take their weirdness as aggression - THAT would be a perfect example of overreacting.

          Guys know that some guys just touch people to get their attention. It isn’t cuz they crave touch. They just know it works and aren’t aware that most people fricking hate it. My own brother does this. I told him once, very fed up, that I really don’t like when he touches my shoulder to get my attention. He was very hurt. He truly could not understand it, and took it personally, as tho I don’t like HIM touching me cuz I dont like HIM.

          At least half of men are completely inept socially, and manage to survive off of mimicry or innate good looks.

If you hate interaction then go at a different time, home gym, etc. Personnel I have been tapped a couple of times, but its usually on the shoulder.

    You’re 100% overreacting. The arm is arguably the least personal place they can touch you to get your attention. I understand you’re autistic and you don’t like it but there’s not much you can really do if you want to wear headphones. You can always say don’t touch me, and they’ll know you’re autistic and won’t touch you but it’ll definitely be a bit odd.

    you are overreacting a bit but if they are full grabbing your arm then those guys may be autistic, socially inept, or want to frick you, full grabbing the arm of some stranger even if to move them or get their attention is odd, weird even
    however since you are a woman asking if you are overreacting then them grabbing your arm most likely means tapping your shoulder to get your attention in which case yes, you are overreacting to simple taps
    anyways if you are like some of the women at my gym, then your fat ass is constantly hogging multiple machines, leaving dumbells on the floor that you were using while you are doing something else and you also stand too close to the benches while not using them/doing something else, try to think if you are blocking access to stuff or being inconvenient to others hence why they need to get your attention
    lastly the normal thing to get someone's attention is just to signal to the other person if they are gonna use something, that's what 90% of the people in my gym do, so again I don't fully buy your story cause this is the internet but in the case it is then maybe those guys want to frick you (aka they think you are really pretty and stop thinking like a normal person when you are near...or they really just want to frick you)
