    Doesn't matter. And they have no right to be "comfortable" every minute they are in the locker room. There are plenty of women who are uncomfortable getting naked around other women, seeing other women naked, or having other women stare at them. Not saying they don't feel uncomfortable, only that it is irrational for them to feel in danger and unreasonable for anyone to believe that their comfort takes any kind of precedence to other people's right to be in a restroom/locker room.

    It's not bigotry. It's a man in the woman's locker room.

    Morality is relative, whether you want to recognize it or not.

    Which the owners of the gym allow. Don't like it, don't go back to the gym. That simple.

    I'll say it again, as a woman I would in fact be caught off guard and concerned if I didn't know about the policy even though I know myself and I would have read them since I'm paying money to join. I would have observed if the situation needed it, and I probably would have went to the front desk to find out what was going on. Once I was told that the front desk is aware and the person was a transgender I would have been perfectly fine with the situation. What's the concern after that? If I feel uncomfortable I can not go in when they are in there, change at home or in a bathroom stall, change in the private changing stalls or not go to that gym. What I wouldn't do is think that the company has to listen to me and do what I say and think its about me, nor would I think safety was an issue since transgenders are no more dangerous than anybody else.

    It is bigotry because she assumes the transgender person is dangerous or they impact safety. That is in fact bigotry.

    Yes, Planet Fitness is free to be idiotic in the extreme, and the woman is right to be upset about it. So you think this moronic policy is going to be good for business?

    This is where that error leads.

    Without an objective standard, “morality” becomes meaningless. Just a way for anyone to declare that what he wants to do or defend is “moral”, and that what he doesn't want to do or defend is “immoral”.

    Pervert Fitness will surely gain a lion's share of the “creepy old men who like to dress up as women and go into the women's locker room” crowd. Do you think that will make up for the female customers that they will lose over such a policy? Me, neither.
