    What put Planet Fitness over the line is when the complaining woman complained that the man was "not hot"

    I was just correcting you on the gym's name, not disagreeing with the point of your post.

    You didn't correct me because I never stated what the name was. Who care what the name is?

    Article:

    Planet Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    Mar 7, 2015, 5:42 PM ET
    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker room last Saturday when she saw someone "dressed like a man." The person was wearing a wig and "a little bit of blush," but was "huge" and appeared "very manly," Cormier told ABC News today. "I just stopped right there in my tracks," she said. "It was a man for sure." Cormier, who had been a Planet Fitness member for two months, said she went to the front desk immediately. The man at the desk told her that Planet Fitness policy is "whatever gender you feel you are, that's the locker room you're allowed to go in," she said. "And then he said, 'We've had lots of complaints about him but we told him to go change in a stall,'" Cormier said. "He said, 'if you're uncomfortable with that you can wait until he's done in there,'" she said. "I stood back and said, 'How about he waits until I'm done in the women's locker room. Or get a unisex bathroom.' He asked if I would like to talk to the manager and I said, 'I'm calling corporate.'" When she called the corporate offices, she said, someone there confirmed that the person at the front desk was correct about Planet Fitness policies. "I wouldn't have signed up for this gym if I knew that ahead of time," Cormier said, adding that the gym is "failing to protect me if anything happens in those locker rooms with a man." She said she went back to the gym the next few days and "told everyone in the locker room what happened." She said everyone she talked to "was appalled." On Thursday, Cormier said, Planet Fitness Corporate called and revoked her membership immediately. "They said, 'You are talking to people about him in the women's locker room. You are making people upset.' That's my whole point," she said. "I'm telling them and warning them because you are not doing that. You allow men in there, and we are appalled by it." Planet Fitness Director of Public Relations McCall Gosselin said the gym is "committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity."






    Wow so this lady made a complete ass of herself hahaha
    I love that she made such an ass of herself and a stink of this that HER membership was cancelled. That's awesome. I'd like to know what danger she was talking about.
    This cracks me up!
    I read a couple articles on this and Planet Fitness did the right thing. After the lady was notified of the companies policy, not only from the front desk but from headquarters she had two choices. Stop going or accept the policy. To continue to complain and demand special treatment and to claim there's a danger and to approach other members for the next four days is what got her membership pulled and rightfully so. I agree she made a complete ass of herself and her membership being pulled was of her own actions.

    She stated " I don't care what you are; I don't care if you're gay lesbian, transgender or transvestite. I am uncomfortable with you as a male in my locker room, in my restroom."

    so basically she wanted it to be her way or no way, her personal subjective comfortably level needed to be the policy in her eyes. Well the fact is its not "HER" locker room, Its planet fitness's locker room.

    EDIT: just read another article claiming she was asked to stop approaching people and discussing the transgender member (which others complained her activities), she would not agree so that was the final straw.

    And expecting to feel safe, secure in a dressing room set up for your gender has nothing to do with bigotry. I thought people on the left were pro-women.

    The Transgender community is trying to bully its way into relevance and or using guilt to force people into compliance and I guarantee, that's going to backfire. Calling people " bigots " and other hateful insults doesn't increase sympathy or awareness.

    On the contrary. It instills a sense of contempt for a group of people who are in the extreme minority, which the Transgender community is. You may think your making progress, but the reality is your breeding contempt and complacency.

    There was nothing " hateful " about what she did, but you have no problem throwing slanderous terms of our own to try and minimize her right to feel safe and secure in a WOMENS dressing room. That overt hypocrisy doesn't go unnoticed.

    You will never get true equality and respect through bullying and calling people " bigots " and hateful. What you WILL do is create a new level of contempt that never existed before and it will based on the fact that the Transgender agenda involves pro-active insults and accusations that amount to bullying.
    her words were in fact bigoted and hateful
    assuming the the dressing room is now instantly unsafe and there's a heightened danger is bigoted and hateful


    try reading the stories there was no "bullying" lol the whole issue was made because of the womans dramatic ranting nor is there hypocrisy

    Love the Transgender agendas approach. Atempting to guilt people into acceptance usually backfires.

    She had every right to assume she wasnt going to be exposing herself to the opposite sex in the Women's Locker room.

    She didn't make an ass of herself, LA Fitness stepped over the line amd has adopted an eexceptionally stupid policy.
    After reading the linked article, I went straight to the Planet Fitness web site and cancelled my membership. It was not so much the cancelling of the lady's membership, it was the "whatever gender you feel you are, that's the locker room you're allowed to go in," policy that they responded to her with. That is taking political correctness to a rather stupid level....and at some point it will probably result in a lawsuit. Some male creep can simply walk into the womens locker room and leer at the ladies....then if confronted, simply say......I feel like a female today.
