    The guy in this thread though, big hairy chested guy?... use the men's room.
    And the simple fact is that you really don't know for sure without seeing the penis or none, not by pure looks. You are assuming based on looks. And you have no business knowing what is really under anyone's dress, pants, etc.

    Last thing I would assume is that they are a sexual predator... not being one does not mean they are welcome in a female changing room though.
    The room is owned by the business, not women in general. So if the business says they are welcome in whichever they identify as, that is up to the business. And women using that room can either accept that or find somewhere else to change or workout if they don't like the policy.

    She was made aware of it. Right after that, if she had wanted to cancel her membership, she should have been allowed to do so with no hassle, even getting the money back for that month, particularly if it wasn't info given to her when she joined.

    Oh well. And we don't know if there wasn't information about this. I don't tell every person who enters our dressing rooms or restrooms that we allow anyone to use either one. Corporate policy.

    And expecting to feel safe, secure in a dressing room set up for your gender has nothing to do with bigotry. I thought people on the left were pro-women.

    The Transgender community is trying to bully its way into relevance and or using guilt to force people into compliance and I guarantee, that's going to backfire. Calling people " bigots " and other hateful insults doesn't increase sympathy or awareness.

    On the contrary. It instills a sense of contempt for a group of people who are in the extreme minority, which the Transgender community is. You may think your making progress, but the reality is your breeding contempt and complacency.

    There was nothing " hateful " about what she did, but you have no problem throwing slanderous terms of our own to try and minimize her right to feel safe and secure in a WOMENS dressing room. That overt hypocrisy doesn't go unnoticed.

    You will never get true equality and respect through bullying and calling people " bigots " and hateful. What you WILL do is create a new level of contempt that never existed before and it will based on the fact that the Transgender agenda involves pro-active insults and accusations that amount to bullying.
    Yes she slandered him because she said his presence makes it unsafe. She's not a bigot because she wants to feel safe she is a bigot because she thinks the presence of a transgender makes it unsafe. I'm a woman and nothing in this story would make me question my safety if I was a member there.. So there was no insult she did indeed act like a bigot, if she finds that insulting simply don't act that way. Equality is progress and those that are bothered by it will just have to figure it out just like with woman and minorities before this issue. So there is no "bullying" going on and those that have contempt over equality policies are the ones with the issue.

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.
    Well she definitely made an ass of herself. Stomping her feet and holding her breath that much over an issue that is obviously hers is pretty pathetic. I know if she would have approached me I would have thanked her for the info, if I didn't know, but then that would have been it. And if I she approached me again or I heard her slandering this person I would have definitely complained about her actions.

    I agree and others must also be considerate. This lady was not.

    That's funny since I'm an independent who clearly has many right leanings. She made a huge ass of herself for how bigoted she is and how much she complained over nothing. She didn't complain that there are unauthorized men in the locker room she tried to insist that this person was dangerous with no evidence of such hateful claims. That makes her an ass. This person did nothing to her, her situation is created by her own ignorance or prejudices.
