    Should it be illegal to stink and not wear deodorant @ gym?

    There were some guys at my gym who stunk so bad I could barely breathe. They were obviously not wearing deodorant. Really not cool. Can we make a law for this?

    stinking should be illegal absolutely everywhere. if any candidate put that on his or her platform, i would vote for them in at least 3 states.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I'd much prefer men to stink over dousing themselves in Axe bodyspray.

    There are apparently some people who are allergic to deodorant- alternatives are just not as effective.

    Well I don't think these guys were allergic. Just of a certain race that is well known for not wearing deodorant. :/ Sorry to have to bring it there but its just true. And gross. And obnoxious. It should not be allowed, rawr. I was reading that shaving/trimming underarms helps a lot too. I'm willing to be they didn't do that either.

    Hear hear! It's all the more obnoxious when people are all sweaty and in tank tops, which seems to makes the odor even more... noticeable.

    And cleaning off the benches / equipment after use would sure be nice, in addition to placing your towel over benches / equipment while using them. Awfully lovely when you go do bench presses or leg extensions and see the bench/apparatus covered in a layer of slimy sweat.

    It's not limited to any one race at my (very diverse) gym. I was trying to bench press 165 lbs (in addition to the 45 lb barbell) the other day and this one white blonde person - who always works out in the same lime green T-shirt - walked odoriferously by and I nearly passed out and dropped the whole barbell.

    There's a guy who works at our supermarket. I call him Hyper-Cologne Guy. Uses so much cologne he makes me sneeze.

    Bonus to working out at home - if I stink nobody notices.

    Not that I ever EVER stink after a good sweaty workout, mind you.

    I despise B.O. and the people who cluelessly (or not) emit it. One of the dancers at the bar I used to work part-time would not wear deodorant. His lover at the time, a doctor (!), was fragrance-free too, and preferred his LOVAH the same way. Apparently it turned some customers on. "My phermones can arouse people" he'd brag. It made my eyes water. I used to at him whenever a customer told him to go away because he smelled. It happened several times. He'd shrug his shoulders and walk away like it was no big deal, but I'd laugh....don't be coming up to me smelling like ass and armpit....

    Smokers have the worst BO. The nicotine just seeps out their pores.

    You can smell this one even before they enter the rink.

    Some smokers are just putrid after they have been out for a fag.

    Although I also find people who overdose themselves on perfume can be just as bad.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
