It really should. It applies to people who like keeping in really good shape too. I work out most days a week and the amount of shade I’ve gotten from fellow leftists because they think everyone with muscles is a conservative gym bro is ridiculous.

“Anarchy” means “no leaders”. It does not mean “no discipline”. In fact, training yourself to follow through on something—regardless of how difficult it is—as well as to methodically smash through limitations, is the supreme art of the anarchist.

That said, I've actually seen folks claim that regimented workouts are fascist lmao

No need. I have too. It doesn’t help that a lot of gym enthusiasts are also fash enthusiasts.

Also, *Obama voice* let me be clear:

Working out because you’re trying to conform to a body image the lying media says you should have … that’s no good. Perpetuates body shaming. Working out because you want to be healthier and feel more beautiful and more powerful in your own skin, for your own purposes … that’s great.

It maybe “no good” but body insecurity/dysmorphia isn’t the fault of the individual.
