Some Muslim women have signed a petition asking the Fitness USA chain to provide separate exercise days for men and women, or put up a divider so they cannot see one another. "In Islam, there are codes of modesty for both genders," one of them says, in a small but illustrative example of the Islamist effort to conform public spaces to their standards. The women claim that they were promised separate exercise days, which the gym chain denies. Anyone want to take bets that Fitness USA will cave, or at least meet them halfway?
