The rule seems to go back to Billy Graham, but it is to avoid being alone with a woman or at an event with alcohol with women without the wife of the husband. Something like that.
For example, to put a person in another’s shoes, what if like you had a boyfriend or husband, girlfriend or wife who was taking private lessons from a fitness instructor of the opposite gender. Would you feel comfortable about this arrangement?
To me this is an occasion of sin (in Catholic thought), and maybe an unnecessary occasion of sin in some instances. You can either have a chaperone or one other person around, or just have personal training from a person of the same gender in the example I gave. Otherwise I think being alone with the opposite gender can be a scandal that gives rise to doubts, rumors, and questions.
In modern times it has become very practical for avoiding false accusations or abuse, so I’m not sure how many people don’t do something like this anyway for practical reasons.
What do you think of this rule overall?
Post anything, all are welcome. No one can kick your post here. Do what you like. @WiggleHard bans nothing and exiles nobody (Dont doxx wolfballs users, no posting of porn/nudes or foot fetish material unless it involves political scandals, no ads for sex sites or dating sites; do that on your own time, no solicitation for pyramid scams, no posting job advertisements unless from official job sites, no posts supporting pedophilia, not all love is love) also: (we cannot allow violations of the patriot act concerning how we speak, no calls for violence, suggesting you are personally harming someone ect. These things are not free speech protected by law but actually against the law and could get the website shut down.) (no spam posting, especially spam posting of what could be considered symbols of hate) examples: guy posting nazi flag 5 times in one day, guy posting “whitey is the devil over and over, im going to use my best judgement on this one rule)
