    It's possible she was going to try that but I'm not sure what she has to "successfully" sue over. People try to sue for everything nowadays.

    That person had just as much right to be there as she did since that is a decision of Planet Fitness's and not here. Her "concerns" don't need addressed and her concerns are what is sad. Her concern was there was a man in there, her concerned was addressed when the front desk told her that they know and he is transgender. Any concerns after that are of her own invention. She has nothing to successfully sue on but I'd like to see her try. I'm sure some hateful group will back her and pay for it.

The gym needs a better policy on what constitutes access to the women's change room, or perhaps investigate a third change room if that demographic is so important to them.

    On the other hand, she is an asshole. You do not go behind people's backs and campaign to get them tossed out, that's junior high crap. And if, as the story alludes, they received complaints about her they were right to take action, AFTER having addressed her about the issue.

    Transgendered is the new issue, and it raises numerous issues. It takes a long time, I understand, to make the transition, surgery etc. Where do they go in the meantime and how should business and government react? This business reacted badly and left the impression that transgendered have more say than regular people, and that any old dude can dress up and join as a woman.
    I have no problem if people think the policy could be improved, hats reasonable. As for some perv getting a cheap thrill that could happen anywhere. I agree with you she is an asshole and her actions her childish.

Calling her a bigot is just ignorant and disrespectful...

    I would not want a woman that feels like a man in the men's locker room either. I want to be able to chill out. A woman taking her shirt off and showing her breasts would not be relaxing... after a workout I want to chill in the sauna or shower and have some cave time. Last thing a man wants during cave time is a woman around. Well, women want to chill without men around and feel safe and secure being naked, changing, whatever.

    I would not stand by if a boy felt like a girl and used my daughters locer room for a second. Ignorant fools and PC idiots could label me a bigot all they like but that boy will not be in with my girls. I will contact the school, the board, the district, the media. I would stand in front of the girls room and make it clear that he is not allowed in as well.
    Assuming somebody is a danger simply because they are transgender is very hateful and bigoted. It's obvious you don't care about the transgender by your words thinking he should be treated as a danger on that alone is the true ignorance and disrespect. The rest of your post is just obnoxious.

    How am I to know this is a transgender and not a pervert pretending to be? Put in a family bathroom or something, but don't make me worry about my safety. Transgenders don't come with certificate.
    Well the police wouldn't have done anything because there was no crime.The membership is yours and you can cancel it . . . maybe. Might only have the option not to renew it. How do you know anybody isn't a pervert, do any of us have certificates that just stupid.

    My apologies for anything I missed, seems this board has way more traffic than I'm used too and posting on the weekend can quickly get me lost hahaha. I'll do my best to keep up but it seems every time I log in I got like 20 quotes and 20 likes.

This person did nothing to her, her situation is created by her own ignorance or prejudices.
    Yeah, sure you are.

    This person was a man in the women's locker room. She had every right to be upset.

    Well.......Planet Fitness can do as they wish. Finding out about their ludicrous "gender neutral" locker room policy has led me to cancel my membership, just since I read about it on this thread. But then I am a traditional American male who does not jump onto modern political correctness bandwagons. Take care.

    What's next? Just one locker room/restroom labeled "Men/women/whatever"?

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.
    If you are a woman, and the presence of a creepy perverted man, such as this one, in a locker room where you are undressing, does not make you feel unsafe and uncomfortable, then you are not representative of women in general. The vast majority of women would be very uncomfortable in such a situation, and very rightly so, and it is entirely unfair to characterize them as “bigots” for being so.

    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.
