    What hypocricy? Asking people to be considerate of others

    Since when is it “demanding special treatment” for a women to expect that there will not be men in what is supposedly a women's locker room when she is expected to be undressing therein?

    Had she just cancelled her membership, or changed in a private stall or not harassed other members per the gyms and members request she wouldn't have gotten hers cancelled.
    How twisted has our society become, when it can be considered “harassment” for a women to object to a man being in a women's-only locker room, but that man's presence is not considered to be harassment against all the women undressing there in his unwanted and inappropriate presence?

    According to the tasgendered woman who assumes she is the person at issue since she is the only trans woman she knows of in that small 41K person city, she went in the lockerroom twice on two different visits--once to hang up her coat and store her purse, and once to retrieve them during each visit, and she isn't even a member at the gym but was there as someone's guest. Transgender woman in Planet Fitness locker room controversy says she used it twice to hang up coat, purse | MLive.com
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    By foolishly believing your perception of locker room norms have some sort of feasance on the gyms policy. Nobody is forcing you to send your children to planet fitness.

    Secondly, anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult, as is the case in nearly every other gym in the country. Your plea to save the children is a worthless strawman.

    Perhaps you are confused with the YMCA.
    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.

    Scary stuff. As a 27 year old with both liberal and conservative views I can safely say that if political liberalism has a "Never Press This Button: Self Destruction Imminent" it's the transgender issue in relation to the public. It truly has the potential to be the end all be all for the left if these kinds disasters become commonplace. I can safely say that well over 95% of people in leftist circles, even among the young, are totally opposed to the transgender movement. It's simply a stroke too far. Some transformations simply need to be kept out of public. There's a limit before you are basically asking for the return of Nazi Germany Esq parties. Transgenderism is that limit. It has the potential to literally undo all the left gains in one very foul swoop.


    As a person with some leftist views, I can say that the entire notion of transgenders being a legitimate movement is bankrupt. It isn't. That's never going to be politically or even societal viable. It should be opposed strongly within the left.

    1.) easy, no matter how you try to falsely word the reality is she wanted corporate policies changed just for her feelings, thats special treatment.
    and she had the option of not going in when that person is or going in the private stall etc but she wanted that forced on the other person . . again special treatment
    2.) the harassment was her bothering other members hence why they complained. AGain you can try to word it how you want but reality doesnt change for your extra sensitive feelings
    glad i could clear up your mistakes for you bob.
