(Newser) – A woman was kicked out of a South Carolina gym for wearing a belly-skimming tank top. Here's the kicker: She's 18 weeks pregnant. Melissa Mantor says an employee at Planet Fitness gym approached her after she'd been on a treadmill for about 10 minutes and told her she needed to change. "How am I in violation of the dress code? I'm wearing what I always wear to the gym," Mantor says she asked. "She said, 'Your belly's hanging out.' And it's like, of course my belly's hanging out! It's obvious—I'm pregnant!"

If the photo that accompanied this story is how she looked at the gym then she needs some fashion advice. I mean my God, woman, do you own a damn mirror?

A similar thing happened to me. They tried to kick me out because my belly was hanging out, and I said, "of course my belly's hanging out! It's obvious I've had like 20 beers before I walked in!"

How is this even a story? There was a rule that she agreed to and then broke. They attempted to help her by giving her a shirt and she left in a huff and then made a big deal about it. "...of course my belly's hanging out! It's obvious—I'm pregnant!" That would be a valid point if there were no other options, but since millions of pregnant women manage to be outside of their homes without their bellies hanging out, I guess it isn't.
