「人それぞれ」の限界

 


暇ネタに分類される記事ですが、どんな人でも受け入れることが売りのフィットネスジムでも流石にマッパは駄目だったようです。「人それぞれ」でいいと言っても限界があるようです。

BY AMANDA LUZ HENNING SANTIAGO
As a Planet Fitness member, you grow accustomed to the strange and unusual. Pizza night? Sure. Or, as I once actually witnessed, a fellow gym member working out in a business suit? Why not? 

Though it's hard to shock fellow members of this particular gym chain, a man named Eric Stagno did just that when he decided to do some naked exercising at the Plaistow, New Hampshire Planet Fitness on Sunday, according to the Boston Globe. Stagno was arrested shortly thereafter.

judgment-free zoneというのはこのジムの商標のようですがUrban dictionaryにも載っていました。日本でいう「無礼講」みたいな感じもあるんでしょうか

(Urban dictionary)
judgment-free zone
A "judgment-free zone" is a setting where friends turn a blind eye to petty social gaffes in the interest of promoting a laid back environment.

The term is often used to assure another person that they do not need to worry about behavior (their own or that of another) for which they just apologized.
Tim: "Sorry about what happened at the party last night. Do you think my stripping act in the kitchen freaked anyone out?"
Jon: "Hey, judgment-free zone, man."






完全にお笑いネタにされていますが、judgment-free zoneという考えも大事ですね。特にYutaなんかも「かくあるべし」と頭が硬くなりがちなタイプですので。このジムはいじめ対策なんかにも取り組んでいるようです。



Popular gym chain Planet Fitness is leading a new effort to reduce bullying in schools.
By Lauren Mazzo

Even if you aren't a member of Planet Fitness, you probably recognize the gym from its bright purple and yellow logo and equipment or its marketing campaign that stands up against "gymtimidation," promoting the gym as a "judgement-free zone." Now Planet Fitness is taking their mission of acceptance outside the gym to target a different audience. The brand's philanthropic effort called "The Judgement Free Generation™" aims to combat bullying among teens.

英語学習的にはjudgeには今回のように単に「判断する」のではなく「ある社会規範を判断基準に良し悪しを評価する」という意味があり、往々にして非難のニュアンスを帯やすいことを学んで置きたいです。
