Demolition Begins To Make Way For Horton Plaza Park

ZombieWalk:SanDiego is looking forward to the makeover for our favorite meeting spot! Horton Plaza really stepped up at Comic-Con this year to help make our walk enjoyable and we can't wait to work closely with them for future events!

YMCA Offers Women-Only Swim Hours For Muslim Women

Everyone complaining about it being exclusionary... what about single-sex restrooms? Shouldn't those be shut down since they're dividing men and women? Your argument doesn't fly. Stop trying to use an invalid argument to mask your obvious xenophobic and ignorant motivations. It's fantastic that the YMCA is opening their pool to these women.

It pains me to see so many people demanding that these women "assimilate" or give up their beliefs to fit some imaginary mold of American society. These are the same people who scream about how America is great because it's a free country. How is it free if you're demanding people bend to your will? That's not how freedom works. These women are free to believe what they choose, practice the religion they choose, and expect reasonable accommodation.

The YMCA is a private organization who has recognized a need for these women to stay healthy and have graciously offered their facility as a means to get exercise, until the Muslim women have their own facility (owning in 2014 - which people would know if they'd bothered to watch the entire story). It's fantastic that the YMCA is reaching out to the community like this and I hope they continue to recognize people from all walks of life desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle, regardless of their background.
