    Seems you have judged the women.

    Your thought is nice, but doesn't really work in the real world. How far are you willing to take "let people live their lives without judging them?".

    Here is a solution for locker rooms. Male, Female, Transgender/Other. Each to their own.

    That all sounds very fine and good, but those of you on wrong who most piously preach that are the ones who are least willing to practice it, when faced with beliefs that you don't like.

    So the women should have just kept her mouth shut, and undressed, in the room with the creepy guy right there? You condemn her for judging an obvious pervert, who had no business being in a women's locker room where she was expected to undress, but then go and judge her for her unwillingness to be subjected to abuse by that pervert. Standard wrong-wing “tolerance”.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I guess I fail to see how this relates to the previous posts or what I originally said. At PF it doesn't matter, at most other places there are consequences.

    You can't make everybody comfortable in these situations. Send 'em to the men's locker room and some uptight guy is going to get his panties in a wad over that.
    No, you can't please everybody, but I don't think the answer is to make an entire locker room of women uncomfortable so that one person can be slightly less uncomfortable - but PF wants to try it out so I guess we'll get to see how it goes.

    why are they uncomfortable? especially uncomfortable above any type of other things that are uncomfortable

    From what is known one woman was uncomfortable, not "an entire locker room." While it is fairly probable that there was another who didn't say anything, there would be those who are comfortable, and likely that as many men would be uncomfortable.

    Keep trying to redefine the word, I'm sure someone at Webster's will listen someday.

    and there were at least two other women that complained about the lady complaining because she was making them uncomfortable also

    It stated management told her she was "making people upset", while she said anyone she talked to was "appalled" by the policy.

    Were they uncomfortable with the policy, the man in the locker room, or the woman complaining? Can't say for sure; probably a mixture of all three.

    1.) yes in one of the articles they said she was making other members uncomfortable
    2.) yes she claims that
    3.) some wre uncomfortable with the lady that is for sure by one of the articles.
    could there have been people uncomfortable by the policy or the transgender? yes of course there could have

    but that doesnt matter to the policy or the fact that claiming it was an entire locker room of women uncomfortable is made up and dishonest

    Like I stated yesterday, it does matter, because the policy states that any behavior that is deemed disruptive to members is a violation. So if members felt that a man in the woman's locker room was disruptive, then it trumps the "self-identification" policy.
