    was he post op or was the hawg out and swinging around?
    Don't know. The woman said that it was obvious he was a man, despite the wig and blush. From what I read, it doesn't sound as if the complaining woman saw any parts.

    Many don't care. Many others won't notice so then won't care. And if enough places have the policy (many likely have a similar policy), then it won't matter.

    You would have to prove the facility didn't take action for legitimate complaints.

    This isn't Separate But Equal with black schools and white schools or a woman's gym and a men's gym, which is legal byt the way... this is gender locker rooms at a both gender gym. Nobody is saying woman can't join or use certain fitness machines... they are saying men can use women's locker rooms. Having separate locker rooms is not discrimination and you know it.

    I read elsewhere that a trans person who believes she might have triggered the raging teacup storm isn't a member, but visited twice with a friend, wearing leggings and a baggy tee. Nobody complained at the time.

    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.
    Too bad if they are uncomfortable. Many women and men are uncomfortable changing in front of people of the same sex. I've had to pee in front of people staring at it coming out for over 16 years now, and purposely watch others do the same as an "observer". You get over it or you leave, that simple.

    her words are bigoted because she is being prejudice and in fact equating the presence of any transgender to danger. That is bigoted. If i said its not safe in there case there's blacks in there, that is bigoted.


    100% Wrong. In fact, it is your opinion that they were.
    1.) clear on what?
    2.) no she hs no right to not be kicked out, she does have every right to complain though
    3.) actually her own qoutes do say she wanted the transgender to do things her way
    4.) for 4 days in a row and the others complained about it and she was asked to stop and it violated policy

    1.) its in thier policy
    2.) its still safe
    3.) she has no case because theres no evidence the gym failed to provide a safe and protective environment.

    Yeah, because burgers are exactly the same as perverted men stalking the women's locker room.
