    Actually, no. I am in no way worried about the "bits" my sons see unless someone is intentionally showing them for some sexual gratification on their part, which would not likely be done in the locker room at a gym, particularly not the female locker room. Intention actually means something to reasonable people.

    That is quite possibly the most hideous coat i have ever seen. Yvette Cormier identifies as an animal? Is she fur-real?

    What I don't understand is how every time this lady went to the gym, the same guy was in the locker room. Are they literally on the same schedule?

    Planet Fitness Revokes Woman's Membership After Transgender Complaint

    Mar 7, 2015, 5:42 PM ET
    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker room last Saturday when she saw someone "dressed like a man." The person was wearing a wig and "a little bit of blush," but was "huge" and appeared "very manly," Cormier told ABC News today. "I just stopped right there in my tracks," she said. "It was a man for sure." Cormier, who had been a Planet Fitness member for two months, said she went to the front desk immediately. The man at the desk told her that Planet Fitness policy is "whatever gender you feel you are, that's the locker room you're allowed to go in," she said. "And then he said, 'We've had lots of complaints about him but we told him to go change in a stall,'" Cormier said. "He said, 'if you're uncomfortable with that you can wait until he's done in there,'" she said. "I stood back and said, 'How about he waits until I'm done in the women's locker room. Or get a unisex bathroom.' He asked if I would like to talk to the manager and I said, 'I'm calling corporate.'" When she called the corporate offices, she said, someone there confirmed that the person at the front desk was correct about Planet Fitness policies. "I wouldn't have signed up for this gym if I knew that ahead of time," Cormier said, adding that the gym is "failing to protect me if anything happens in those locker rooms with a man." She said she went back to the gym the next few days and "told everyone in the locker room what happened." She said everyone she talked to "was appalled." On Thursday, Cormier said, Planet Fitness Corporate called and revoked her membership immediately. "They said, 'You are talking to people about him in the women's locker room. You are making people upset.' That's my whole point," she said. "I'm telling them and warning them because you are not doing that. You allow men in there, and we are appalled by it." Planet Fitness Director of Public Relations McCall Gosselin said the gym is "committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity."






    Wow so this lady made a complete ass of herself hahaha
    I love that she made such an ass of herself and a stink of this that HER membership was cancelled. That's awesome. I'd like to know what danger she was talking about.
    This lady was setting them up to get sued. I would have banned her too.

    2.)Do you also need us to define transgender for you, or do you have that one covered?
    1.)oh really, so now that you answered and not the person I asked do you agree with his statement?
    95% of people on the left (im guessing he thinks even higher on the right) are against transgender rights? please cover that next lol

    2.) And no, unlike a few here i definitely know what transgender is, that is why I dont make bigoted statements and assumptions that this just magically makes the locker room "dangerous" and "unsafe"

    Well, if you could get in to the women's locker room by just putting on some blush would you ever leave?

    So because you seem to be juvenile enough in your thoughts and behaviors, you assume others must be too?

    If the "guy"/trans woman was really just a pervert getting peeks, and the gym was really get legitimate complaints about inappropriate behavior, not just being in the locker room, then the gym could have revoked his/her membership.

    Yeah, men really should be allowed to shower in the women's locker room so long as they say they aren't sexually attracted to any of the women in the gym because anyone who objects is a homophobe.

    I don't have any issue with it. They are no more likely than women to do something as public a place as a locker room is.

    I have changed with guys before.

    And please stop with the victim mentality. Where have I called anyone a homophobe in this thread or even another recent thread on this subject?

    exactly but after the initial complaint about the lady's concerns there were no legitimate complaints to be made. The legit complaints came from other members of the lady bothering them and making them uncomfortable and violating the rules of the gym. Hence she got the axe and made fool of herself.

    If there was ever a LEGIT complaint made then yes id support throwing out anybody but that wasnt the case with this lady's repeated attempts.
