    if the policy bothers you that's a good move on your part, you did the right thing unlike this lady.
    Had she just cancelled her membership, or changed in a private stall or not harassed other members per the gyms and members request she wouldn't have gotten hers cancelled.

    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.
    You do understand that it is the Gym's policy not LGBT policy. The Gym cancelled her membership based on their dealings with her. The reason for the dispute is irrelevant.

    She could have been easily complaining to other members for a host of other issues with the Gym. The Gym objected to her continuous complaining to the other members. The reason of her complaining is irrelevant.

    The woman had a right to be angry and she did not harass other members. Discussing what happened with other members is not harassment. If Planet Fitness wants to accomodate gender confused members, they should add a gender neutral locker room. I think the woman has a good case for a lawsuit.

    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    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker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.
    Pre-op Trans need to be self aware and considerate of others, post op trans should be treated as the gender they are.

    Errr ... why exactly do you or I care about someone's genitals?

    Is it your business, or anyone's, to be examining another person's private areas?

    1.) yes she can be angry
    2.) maybe but some of the articles claim otherwise and say other members complained about her because for the next 4 days she was approaching people making them uncomfortable
    3.) your opinion but supposedly there were complaints
    4.) not needed and thier decision
    5.) she has ZERO case for a law suit lol

    the way I understood it, other members were complaining about her complaining. I do agree about the gender neutral locker room though.

    Anyhow, I have never had a high opinion of PF due to the "lunk alarm" and would never ever consider going there. Their explaination for the lunk alarm is that they don't won't people to be intimidated by serious weight trainers, but the truth is that serious weight trainers go to the gym several times a week, and thus they aren't profitable at $10/mth.

    They design those places in a manner as to attract people who aren't likely to actually use the facilities, and the one near me has nothing but cardio equipment and a few lightweight machines (no free weights at all). I'd prefer someplace a little more serious, I don't won't to waste my time doing exercises that have limited value - not that cardio doesn't have value, but I can do that without any special equipment or with a machine that I can fit in a corner of my bedroom.

    I know way too many people who have been "going to the gym" for years, but they don't even look physically fit, they are still flabby. With proper training and diet almost anyone (shy of a 400 pounder) can look "buff" in 2-3 years or less.

    My issue is two fold:

    1. If you're in the ladies locker room, and you have dangly bits, that's awkward. Seriously, why do that to others? If you can pass, maybe been on HRT/implants... change where or in a way others don't see this. It's called being polite.

    2. If there children present, they don't need to have that issue in their lives.

    Polite? Public nudity is terribly common throughout the world. From indigenous people to Europeans. Stop pretending a "dangly bit" is something shocking.
