    1. A trangendered male is a man
    2. Statistics are that men sexually abuse women far more than women sexually abuse women... and men are perverts more especially those that want to go into womens locker rooms
    3. I don't want women in the mens locker room. You may not care about my feelings but I would argue against allowing her in.
    4. That sounds like the mindset of an oppressive male... and I know you aren't one. Protecting women and their feelings seems like a pretty noble thing to me...

    If the woman was so concerned about a transgendered woman seeing her undress, Why doesn't she just use the changing stalls?

    1.) you mean ONE woman.
    how many guys do you think would complain that he is in the mens locker room dressed as a man and theres a VERY solid chance he likes looking at men in a sexual way

    in fact since you want to talk about danger levels
    who do you think is safer
    A.) the women in the ladies locker room with the transgender man dressed as a woman pre or post opwho is attracted to men
    B.) the transgender man attracted to men dressed as a woman pre or post op in the men in the mens locker room

    2.) biologically yes he is also transgender and may not even have a penis and is most likely attracted to men. A gay, black, chrisitina man is also a man but they are also gay, black christian etc etc
    the topic is about transgender
    3.) transgender men? id like to see that statistic
    also if we are going off of statistic to equate EXTRA meanings should we not have male coaches, doctors teachers etc that will be dealing with girls? I mean thats what I coach, i coach girls, maybe i shouldnt be allowed cause you know, stats say men are more likely sexual predators. come on Bodi you are better than that
    4.) so a transgender man that wants to go into the girls locker room is a pervert? based on what?
    5.) and you are free to argue that as they would be free to deny you membership
    6.) they arent in danger nor need protecting in this case so im good
    thier feelings i still dont care about when they are nonsensical and bigoted

    if you can show me the increased danger youll have something

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.
    Effectively "if you look male, I don't want to see you in the same changing room as myself".

    That said, I could see it being an issue if a person who both physically appears as male and mentally identifies as male pretended to mentally identify as female specifically so he could go into the women's locker rooms...for whatever purpose he might have...
    I mean...there's no way to test that...

    But this does bring to mind an interview I listened to recently, of someone who was mentally male OR female (never both at the same time), and alternated between the two randomly.

    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.
    All you really need for cardiac training is a good treadmill. I don't really care about the lunk alarm stuff. What can one expect for $10.00 a month..or $20.00 if you want entry to all locations. I just do not want to be a member of an a gymnasium that cares more about political correctness then customer service.
