Gymnasium then (Ancient Greece)
>literally means "to train naked", so everybody can appreciate the glorious male body and pay tribute to the Gods
>open air, exposure to the sun (D3, healthy tanning, fresh air), calming sounds of nature
>philosophers often held lectures around the gymnasium and intellectual discussions were encouraged between athletes, public libraries were nearby, as the Greeks considered physical health/training and education/intellectual training as intrinsically complementary
>ultimate goal was to honor the Gods, pursue introspection and learn about self-discipline, the natural and moral way
>no women allowed, as they of course belonged in the kitchens, homosexuality was proudly accepted as a logical lifestyle, since men were rightfully viewed as the superior gender

'Gyms' now
>People wearing ugly clothes that hide the body, symbols of consumerist vanity and capitalist excess, sponsors/brand logos everywhere, typically "frat bro" sense of style with overly tight tanktops and stupid ironic taglines
>closed buildings in concrete towers, air conditioner, loud lowest-common denominator radio pop "music", vulgar "bitches & money"-obsesed hip-hop or anger-fueled satan-worshipping rocknroll
>meatheads spouting broscience, "yo bro did you watch the game last night?", bragging about unrewarding sexual intercourses with drunk club harlots
>ultimate goal is to have abs to impress women, men are turning into self-obsessed metrosexuals, fitness culture is plagued by vanity, anti-intellectualism and marketing scams, steroids are commonplace, beauty standards became distorted thanks to steroids bodybuilding (the ugly, veined, dry skin look), cardio and health are frowned upon
>dumb women trying to distract serious athletes while doing useless routines, homosexuality has become an ironic meme "no homo" as if something to be ashamed of when men are objectively superior to women and it's perfectly logical to prefer them

>Not wearing Nike to honour the Goddess of Victory

>Not banting about the latest gladiatorial sports or how many women you conquered in the name of Venus
>Not pursuing aestetic perfection so as to honour the hands of Mars

>>35166196

Depends on which Greeks in particular. Apparently Athenian men seriously despised women to the point that the gay was rampant.

Homosexuality didn't even exist as a concept at the time.

But most Greeks did have sex with other men.
