    I think this is going to be a parent v non-parent issue, there, with parents naturally more concerned with taking care of kids, and non-parents more concerned with maximizing freedom of movement.

    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.

    *tongue in cheek...*
    seems like sexual discrimination if a woman can parade her shaved (or muff covered) lady bits around the locker room naked in front of a young girl, but a man cannot.
    {or vice versa, to be fair}
    *tongue really in cheek...*
    or maybe if the pubic hair is so much that nothing is visible (man or woman?)


    *not so much tongue in cheek*
    if this issue concerns you, are you for gyms banning gay members from same-sex locker rooms?

    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.

    Nope. It's simply protecting children. Which is not only fine, but correct.

    Maybe you should start at step one, and explain to your daughter it is a not a good idea to be looking at **** in locker rooms.

    what is it protecting children from, specifically?
    transgenders don't have a monopoly on pedophilia, that I am aware of.

    Nope.
    so explaining why there's a "dangling bit" is problematic, but explaining why two women or men might be kissing isn't?

    odd times.

    Re: Planet Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    In all honesty, I go to a gym 5 days a week, almost always use the locker room, and have never seen anyone "parading around" in the nude. Few people use the showers, and when they do they always wrap themselves in a towel or change in the shower or change in one of the toilet stalls. People have seen me in my undies, but never nude in the locker room.

    It just seems like this should be a non-issue, especially since no one is forced to use the locker room.

    I completely sympathize with you Mr. Vicchio.

    Even though European, Asian and African parents are able to quite successfully explain this to their children, it must be very tough for you to replicate their advanced parenting skills.

    Okay, drop the smarmy jerk attitude k? social norms are different in different places. Just because you have no problem with your kid having to deal with issues that other parents might not believe is appropriate doesnt give you the right to claim some moral high ground.

    Clearly he was calling you out for projecting your own moral high ground, but you were just too blinded by hypocrisy to comprehend.
