    It is a "woman's locker room" because the business it is in feels that most people prefer to get changed with those who share similar parts as them, if they have to share such facilities. However, those women do not have that right to not have the right to demand that the business prevent people from entering that space, even transgendered women and men. They can leave the gym or not use those facilities if they don't like the policy.

    Are you a danger to women in any public place? Would you attack a woman if you were alone with her in the gym or a locker room? If not, then why do you assume other guys would or are?
    Where did Bob mention that he was a danger? Why do you guys keep making things up?

    So what if calling someone a pervert is disrespectful? Since when does being a pervert entitle one to respect? I'll save my respect for those who appear to deserve it. A creepy perverted man who goes into women's locker rooms does not qualify for my respect.

    So? Those things are not equivalent to attacks. And women do it to men, some to other women. Men do it to men.

    And most rapes occur when the person knows the other, date rape. Attack type rapes rarely happen, but when they do, they generally don't occur in a public, "high traffic" (or at least the potential) area. Can you show any stats on women being attacked by men or transgendered women in a similar setting?

    He said her safety was compromised by having a "man" in the locker room, which indicates that he believes a man in the locker room is a danger to women in the locker room. You are playing semantics.

    It is not wrong to be wary of one who claims to be what he obviously is not; nor is it wrong to be wary of someone who insists on going where he has no legitimate business going.

    It is certainly not wrong to be wary of a man who claims to be a woman, and wants to go into a women's locker room. It is very much wrong not to be wary of such a person.

    I would never be in a women's locker room, so it is moot to speculate about how I would conduct myself if I were. If my sense of decency was sufficiently broken that I would seek to go into ladies' dressing facilities, then I'd have to say that it would not be safe to assume, at that point, that my sense of decency wasn't also too broken to restrain me from otherwise behaving in highly inappropriate and harmful manners toward the ladies whose privacy I was already thus invading.

    It doesn't have to be successful to cost planet fitness money.

    Just adding my two cents Bob... you be you. That is not a bad thing either...

    Why do you keep using SOLELY the term "attack"? She implied safety when she mentioned that they needed to "protect".

    He said her safety was compromised by having a "man" in the locker room, which indicates that he believes a man in the locker room is a danger to women in the locker room. You are playing semantics.
    No... you are using a term that is more dramatic than we are using in an attempt to belittle and refute our point, that is all.

    It's basically diversity to an insane level for the sake of modern day political correctness. Their charge of bigotry is even more ludicrous.
