    Yes. I let them into either restroom, fitting room where I work, as is corporate policy as well. And you don't even have to be transgender. A man can go into the fitting room with his mother, wife, girlfriend, whoever, and vice versa.

    They would be no more liable here than if it were someone of the same sex attacking people in the locker rooms. This is a stupid assumption.

    And expecting to feel safe, secure in a dressing room set up for your gender has nothing to do with bigotry. I thought people on the left were pro-women.

    The Transgender community is trying to bully its way into relevance and or using guilt to force people into compliance and I guarantee, that's going to backfire. Calling people " bigots " and other hateful insults doesn't increase sympathy or awareness.

    On the contrary. It instills a sense of contempt for a group of people who are in the extreme minority, which the Transgender community is. You may think your making progress, but the reality is your breeding contempt and complacency.

    There was nothing " hateful " about what she did, but you have no problem throwing slanderous terms of our own to try and minimize her right to feel safe and secure in a WOMENS dressing room. That overt hypocrisy doesn't go unnoticed.

    You will never get true equality and respect through bullying and calling people " bigots " and hateful. What you WILL do is create a new level of contempt that never existed before and it will based on the fact that the Transgender agenda involves pro-active insults and accusations that amount to bullying.
    Assuming she would be attacked by the transgender woman was more likely than her being attacked or even sexually harassed/ogled by another woman was foolish. She basically suggested to others at that gym as well that this was likely. Almost certainly that is the case.

That is taking political correctness to a rather stupid level....and at some point it will probably result in a lawsuit. Some male creep can simply walk into the womens locker room and leer at the ladies....then if confronted, simply say......I feel like a female today.
    Then you should probably not shop at pretty much most stores in the US since many retail chains have basically the same policy for fitting rooms. And many don't care if you feel like the opposite gender of the fitting room you want to go into.

    From the Article:

    "I wouldn't have signed up for this gym if I knew that ahead of time," Cormier said
    Well, now she's not a member of that gym, so it sounds like she got what she wanted. Case closed.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    No, she doesn't. So long as the gym can show that they asked her not to bother other gym members about a particular other gym member that she was uncomfortable with, and she refused, they had every right to revoke her membership and there isn't a damn thing she can do about it.

    so explaining why there's a "dangling bit" is problematic, but explaining why two women or men might be kissing isn't?
    Oh I would definitely ban sexual contact. Just not gay people - it comes down to simple logistics at that point.

    2. If there children present, they don't need to have that issue in their lives.
    People really need to get over themselves and seeing the parts of the opposite sex. It really isn't that big of a deal.

    Complaining about that other specific person personally to anyone using the gym is making an ass of herself, and that is what she did.

    No, but more so. We put men in prison who expose themselves to little girls, and for good reason.
    Actually, it depends on the circumstances. And why does that policy not apply to women exposing themselves in locker rooms when other women take their sons with them into those locker rooms? Why would that policy not apply to every man in the locker room when a child, male or female, is with their father in the locker room?
