    The policy states, whatever gender you "identify" with. You don't think perverts could take advantage of this policy? Certainly you aren't that naive.

    One should be able to choose to allow the opposite sex to view them naked. It's funny, libs only favor "choice" when it suits their sick, twisted agenda.

    That choice still exists - simply choose another gym. You have no right to set/change company policy simply because you are a customer. If you want a Whopper then don't patronize McDonald's and then fuss about them not offering to make you one - simply go to Burger King instead.

    good thing that choice wasnt take from her, please dont make up strawmen
    as the articles state that choice was never taken away. Not go in there when the other person is in there, use one of the private stalls, change at ahome or find another gym.

    THat wasn't good enough for her so she choose to break rules and get herself booted

    No. If you feel that the other person is a threat to you just because they are a man or a transgender woman then that is your ignorance and bias showing through, not a logical fear that should be accommodated.

    They can. If you don't want someone of either sex to see you naked, don't get naked in front of them. You have no right to dictate to other people that they can't look at you getting naked in a public space, such as a locker room. If their presence bothers you, then you need to find another place to change.

    Perverts can be of either gender. And how exactly do you envision them "taking advantage" of this policy?

Hence her membership was revoked which was funny.

    Planet fitness did it right and their policy is fine.

    I can freely admit that without being told I myself could be caught off guard and have questions and may have even brought it up to the front office but once they inform me of the situation and that they are fully aware I'm done. Any personal concerns are now mine to handle.
    Her comments were not hateful nor bigoted. She is complaining that there is a man in the woman's locker room. I don't care what he "feels" his gender is. He is free to feel that he is a woman, dress like a woman and do whatever he wants that is legal.... as a woman. A man should not be allowed in the woman's locker room though. Calling her a bigot is just ignorant and disrespectful...

    I would not want a woman that feels like a man in the men's locker room either. I want to be able to chill out. A woman taking her shirt off and showing her breasts would not be relaxing... after a workout I want to chill in the sauna or shower and have some cave time. Last thing a man wants during cave time is a woman around. Well, women want to chill without men around and feel safe and secure being naked, changing, whatever.

    I would not stand by if a boy felt like a girl and used my daughters locer room for a second. Ignorant fools and PC idiots could label me a bigot all they like but that boy will not be in with my girls. I will contact the school, the board, the district, the media. I would stand in front of the girls room and make it clear that he is not allowed in as well.

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.
    The article is not clear on that. She has every right to continue to complain without being kicked out and she did not want it her way... she was simply telling others about it.

    her words were in fact bigoted and hateful
    100% Wrong. In fact, it is your opinion that they were.

    Did they inform women that men were allowed into the woman's locker room? A room that has historically been safe for women and woman only? No they did not. She has a case.
