    1.) this i agree with to some degree I do think its a situation that can make both the transgender uncomfortable and the woman but thats just how it is. Locker rooms are already uncomfortable to many varying degrees for many people.
    2.) I would understand there being a legit complaint if this person was walking around doing helicopters in everybody's face but jokes aside, From the articles though it seems they simply made trips to thier locker.

    The real solution here is one big unisex locker room. simple solutions by the good reverend! though d00ds with blacked out sunglasses should be looked upon with suspicion.


    In reality the reason this is a "thing" is because what was, is, and even if changing what was, to the other, it does't seem "natural" to most and most get uncomfortable with that.

    Now turn it around, women, here care more than men, that is a social construct.

    I'm onboard if Dina Meyer is required to be there.

    1.) Unisex with private stalls wouldnt bother me but that would be a solution BEFORE the fact.
    Also to the like 3 people that claim its dangerous, that wouldnt work
    2.) I get that but people have to get over it. This lady was given real options and choose to ignore them and cry about it.
    Just like people though it was unnatural to shower with blacks when sports became integrated, schools etc.
    Im still uncomfortable with people i may view as physically unattractive at the beach or some guy that is 400lbs naked in my gym etc etc I dont get to demand policy be changed just for that reason then act surprised when i was asked to quit, told them i will not and they pull my membership.

    I get the initial shock value and concern, i get the uncomfortably but once given the answer by the local facility and corporate in a situation like this thats the end of it.

    3.) not sure what you are saying here? you mean men would care less if a woman who was a transgender man came in to thier locker room? thats probably a save guess. Lets not switch it what if that same person came into the mans locker room dressed as a woman? Its probably a safe guess that would cause the biggest stink.

    So, who should be able to use the ladies room? pre? Post? what if the "transgendered". what about a dude in a hells angels cut claiming to be transgedered?

    I don't have an answer, I lean towards you run what you brung (or what you are born with). keeps things simple.

    2.) I get that but people have to get over it. This lady was given real options and choose to ignore them and cry about it.

    if you are a woman, and you round the corner into the locker and see a hawg, what are you supposed to think?



    Just like people though it was unnatural to shower with blacks when sports became integrated, schools etc.

    I don't think it's the same at all, actually. you can't cut your black off (or turn it inside out).



    Im still uncomfortable with people i may view as physically unattractive at the beach or some guy that is 400lbs naked in my gym etc etc I dont get to demand policy be changed just for that reason then act surprised when i was asked to quit, told them i will not and they pull my membership.

    Ones a sexual organ in the construct of todays society. again, if a burly dood simply "identifies" as a woman, would he be allowed into the womans locker?

    it wouldn't be as big as man in womans...

    1.) im totally fine with transgender using the facilities they seem fit.
    If it was my facilities in question i would require more than word of mouth though.
    2.) I dont know what I might think as a woman, maybe id be grossed out, maybe id want me some of that lol IDK but thats not what happened here.
    also if it was my facility i would have a no flying hogs policy. But again in this case im not judging her initial reaction, its the crap afterwards that got her booted

    3.) but it is, you can technically drop your religion Im not saying they are identical things but you mentioned "comfortably" they were examples of other comfortablities people have to either get over or find away for themselves to address it.

    4.) im many places yes . . .its varies

But hey, you've lived in this society your whole life, right? You should know this (even if you object to it).
    I honestly think those laws are archaic as well, at least the ones that treat nudity as a crime rather than a violation of the health code (sexual act=jail/sex offender ; health code violations=fines). Nudity is really only sexual when a person makes it that way, the same as any other part of our body.

    But that has nothing to do with what you tried to equate nudity laws to. Those have nothing to do with what goes on in a locker room.

    [QUOTE=AGENT J;1064400280]1.) that doesnt make it a secret
    2.) She was told after her concern and she was given three small easy things to do and she choose not to

    maybe, and this is just me guessing, PF thought the policy is good enough and EXTRA steps aren't needed[/QUOTE]

    Apparently they were wrong. This was inevitable, wasn't it. Realistically, no way on earth was this not going to become an issue, sooner or later. Signs could have avoided the thing altogether. Maybe they wanted the publicity.

    1.)there's nothing apparent about it in this story. One lady complained, was given an answer and complained some more and broke policies herself until herself booted
    it was not inevitable THAT would happen
    2.) uhm in this case its still not an issue except fot eh lady that got herself booted
    3..) thats possible, reading policies could have also did that . . maybe
    4.) guess that possible too but there no evidence of it, theres more evidence the lady that got the boot wanted the spotlight
