    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    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker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.
    Not wanting men in the women's locker room is "making an ass of herself"? Only in liberal lala land. Or, Layla land, in this case.

    Get the **** out of here. If you think she has a lawsuit against a gym, you pretty much fail as an American. Do you also believe a private establishment has the right to ban people on the basis of sexuality, race, gender, or... whatever they want?

    She obviously brought tremendous drama bull****, to the point where corporate decided to revoke her membership.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

That is taking political correctness to a rather stupid level....and at some point it will probably result in a lawsuit. Some male creep can simply walk into the womens locker room and leer at the ladies....then if confronted, simply say......I feel like a female today.

    So because perverted hetero men can't control themselves, transgender persons should be disaccommodated?

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

    So a (presumed) little girl is only traumatized by this class of "nudity" exposure?

    Think of the children! Oh we must think of the children!



    I'm pretty confident all children know to report someone who is behaving in an inappropriate manner, or they are likely accompanied by an adult.

    The point is simply that other people also have rights, and creating a system to enable their victimization, however "politically correct" is wrong.

    No, but more so. We put men in prison who expose themselves to little girls, and for good reason.

    I was more considering, as a parent, explaing why that lady had a dick to my daughter.

    and do those rights extend to a situation with a 3rd party public-serving business who you sign a contract to be on their property and use it at their terms?


    No, but more so. We put men in prison who expose themselves to little girls, and for good reason.

    Oh, I would agree the woman has no rightful cause for suit here. The Gym is allowed to set what policy it will, and people are free to choose to go there or not.

    Do we put women in prison who expose themselves to little girls? And if so- for good reason?
    Not generally - but this isn't a woman. It's a man who thinks he's a woman. Now if he's post-op, well, zero confusion for the child, It looks like a woman, it's got all the woman parts, in that case, it's a locker room. Pre-op is a very different story.


    But if you don't believe me - go ahead. Run up to a school, expose yourself to a bunch of six year old girls, and when they take you away try to get off by explaining that it's okay because you think you are a woman. I'm sure that defense will hold up just grand.
