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.
    No a man has no right to a women's locker room.
    Nope her concerns of not having men in a womens locker room are 100% valid.

    nope they failed to provide a safe area for her to change her clothes.

    she does see above.
    nope no such thing as a hate group for not wanting men in womens locker rooms.

    If I heard of a man in my daughters locker room I would file a protest with the school and call the police to arrest the kid.
    no boy or man has a right to be in a locker room full of women.

    however this is the way of a morally bankrupt society.

    Planet Fitness can also solve this controversy by creating a third locker room for transvestites...

That being said who the **** cares because a man should not be in a woman's locker room. I don't give a flying **** about some the opinions out there that act as if changing in front of other genders is not a big deal... most people I would say think that it is a big deal and that is why they go to their respective locker rooms and not the opposite gender's locker room. If a woman does not want a man in her locker room because she feels it isn't safe that is valid because men do in fact do things that are unsafe to women. The fact that it probably will be absolutely fine is irrelevant.
    She is no more protected from those things by banning men than by allowing them in. No one has shown any evidence that men and women sharing public, monitored (attendant or people nearby) locker rooms protects women more than just allowing women in there. This is especially true when the main method of determining if someone is male or female is observation. There is not a pecker checker at the door. They don't do DNA testing to determine if someone has male or female chromosomes. They don't even ask for an ID that shows legal sex before anyone may enter the locker rooms.

    So you have seen a girl at the gym? As in a small girl? If you haven't seen a boy at the gym, then why would you assume that there are children at all in the women's locker rooms? There isn't likely to be girls at the gym if there are no boys at the gym. (Now, I've seen young boys and young girls at the gyms I've been to, but those have also been on base gyms.)

    No. She is being called a "bigot" because of her reaction to her own discomfort about the transgendered woman being in the locker room. It is her reaction, her assumptions that a transgendered woman, who may still physically be a man, is a higher threat to her or other women than another woman using that locker room is without any actual evidence of this. It would be the same as saying that allowing black women into the locker room makes her uncomfortable because she views them as a higher threat to her than white or Asian women. There is no evidence of this being true, but she still believes it. And if she reacted in a similar fashion to the gym "allowing" blacks in the locker room she uses, she would have no support and be called out for her bigotry right away.

    It doesn't matter. It is still their policy. There are other places that have similar policies, and even less restrictive policies. (I know of at least one store who has the policy that anyone can use either changing room or restroom no matter what gender they identify with. A man who identifies as a man can still go into the ladies restroom or the women's fitting room, just as a woman can go in the men's restroom or the men's fitting room.)

    Ross Dress for Less stores. As well as Target (at least many Targets) have gone to unisex changing rooms.

    http://www.news4jax.com/news/concern...rooms/25385920

    Other stores that allow it:

    H&M
    Urban Outfitters
    American Apparel
    Forever 21
    Neiman Marcus makes their dressing rooms department specific, not gender specific
    Barney's
    Bloomingdale's
    Saks

    PERVERT Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    Fixed it for you. And no, for a woman to be uncomfortable with a strange man being present where she is undressing is not bigoted; it's entirely normal and proper; very much unlike the presence of a man in that setting.

    It's funny that the side that defends this outrageous and inexcusable disregard for the safety and well-being of women is the same side that falsely accuses its opposition of waging a “war on women”. If there is a war on women going on in our society, this is it; or at least it is a significant part of it.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    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.

    The reaction to the discomfort is where she becomes bigoted, not the discomfort itself.

    There is nothing about a transgendered woman or even a man being in a woman's dressing room that automatically disregards safety or well being of any woman. That is reality. Believing that a man or transgendered woman being in there automatically puts women in some sort of danger is sexist. It assumes that men are a danger to women just by seeing them naked. Most men can control themselves. There is no evidence that transgendered women are more likely to attack in any way cisgender women than other cisgender women are.
