Hayaat gym - bad choice of words?

With so many sporting activities that exist today, which is the ultimate sporting activity and why? Not forgetting health, which is also a closely related issue that should be amongst our top priorities.

Hayaat gym - bad choice of words?

Postby abuali » 26 Oct 2012, 20:22

Salaam

Recently i had to stop and read a notice about Hayaat Gym twice.

I have attached it below.

Do you find anything weird in the words used?

my first thghts: wats the big deal? its just a cool advertisement.

but, after looking up some urban meanings of way babe means as used on the streets -

a girl or guy who is easy on the eyes, talented, and good looking, overall just very sexy. referred to as "babe".
eg:
"man, those girls are babes"


A term a girl friend uses towards her boyfriend and vice versa!
Alec: I love you babe
sara: I love you 2

OR
AIDAN: heya babe
sara: hi
alec: WTF U CALLING MY GF A BABE FOR!!!



a person who is always forthable.
the person that always makes your head spin when you see them
Rachele Smith is a babe, i just froth when i see her


A good looking girl or a bathing beauty (chick in a bathing suit)
Wow, what a babe!


nw m not so sure abt the advert :confused:

This notice was eventually removed.

I had spoken to someone who is in-charge of the gym activities. He genuinely thought that the words were not inappropriate. We agreed to look at the words and ponder on them at our own time. Soon thereafter the board was removed.

I am grateful to the brother and hayaat gym for their constructive action.
