Australian women only gym bans breastfeeding

Not quite sure how this makes sense…
A women-only gym in the national capital has banned mothers from breastfeeding their newborn babies.
Club Pink, in Canberra’s north, could find itself dragged before the courts after it told two members to stop feeding their hungry babies in the gym.
The mothers – Melinda MacDonald and Kathleen Notley – have held meetings with the club’s managers, written to the club and provided them with relevant sections in the ACT’s Discrimination Act outlining their case.
But the women were informed by management the no-children, members-only policy of the club stands and they could not bring their newborn babies to the gym.

Guess if you have kids, you just can’t work out.
