    4.)The same policy could have resulted in the transgender man's membership being revoked because it was deemed disruptive to other members.
    so again dodge my questions and just talk about other stuff . . . got it
    also you arent talking bout my answer? I guess since i would be ok with it you didnt like it lol


    1.) great did i say it wasnt?
    2.) very possible
    3.) yes i understand you are making that claim but so far you havent shown it to be factual
    4.) no not in this case since they already have a policy about judgment and one that allows equal treatment to transgenders.

    Probably so, but that doesn't make her point any less legitimate. If the gym wants to enforce such a policy, they should tell prospective members up front, rather than by just letting them find out as they're changing clothes and some random guy comes walking in the locker room. That doesn't help anyone, and is just a recipe for disaster.

    All they have to do is post a sign at the front desk and on each locker room door. Seems dishonest to keep that policy secret. Full disclosure and then anyone can live with it or go elsewhere.

    1.) thats eactly my question. Seems there are a handful here that are assuming that transgender men must all be threats . . . its dangerous
    2.) this wouldnt bother me either

    the issue is that person was where they are allowed, supposed to be and its known they are there.
    the lady didnt know so this is why i understand her "initial" response . . .
    after that, her shenanigans are her doing and it got her axed

    I didn't say her complaint wasn't legitimate. I didn't like their billing policy, so I didn't become a member. If they changed it while I was a member I'd simply quit. My complaint would be legitimate.

    Anybody not liking that club for any reason is legitimate. But it's a private club only open to its members. They don't have to make people privy of policy changes. It may cost them members but that is their circus and their monkeys.

    The policy is applied by club management, i.e. each location, and the policy is directed at "disruptive" and/or "inappropriate behavior" towards other members. Each location can determine what fits that description, which guarantees a variety of outcomes.

    I don't think it's dishonest for people to have fitting philosophies about trans people.

    I understand the lady was offended. But that is the way it is some times.
