Hot Take: Exercising Can Make You A Right-Winger

No wonder so many Leftists are soft and weak

Zoe WIlliams looks exactly like a typical leftist scold, eh? From the screed

It’s not really talking, though, is it? It’s boasting. Fitness boasters try to cover this up by featuring their dog in a selfie (“beautiful morning run with my buddy!”), or amplifying their own unworthiness in the face of an arduous task (#challenge), but the showing off couldn’t be plainer: “Here I am, improving myself, with willpower and grit, and because I was so great to start with, I’m shortly to become even better.” In normal life, we learn not to do this at roughly the age we learn not to bite people when we’re cross: when did you last blow your own trumpet about your prodigious intellect, or your sex life, or your eyelashes? It is the height of rudeness to burden another person with a remark to which there is no zesty reply (“This is my fourth Zumba class this week”), but courtesy vanished with modesty when you set your alarm that bit earlier.

Do too much, and the self-love develops a carapace of self-sufficiency. This is especially a problem for cyclists, who come to think of themselves as an off-grid warrior class, having performed their commute drawing on no more resources than their own glutes, and maybe a sports drink. Unavoidably, over time, this makes you more rightwing, as you descend into an aerobics-powered moral universe where only the weak need each other, and all the strong need is a waterpouch in their backpack that pipes straight into their mouths.

That’s literally the only mention of turning into a right winger other than the headline. I guess all those bikers in Seattle and other lefty cities are soon going to vote GOP? Does this mean that Republicans should all back the use of ride-share bikes in liberal cities, turning them GOP? Does this all mean that liberals are not self-sufficient and Republicans are?

You should enjoy a fitness writer not know what fitness does, though

I have been writing a fitness column for a year and in this time I’ve digested very little about what exercise does for your body.

She does know it makes you right wing, though.
