    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    A Michigan woman's Planet Fitness membership was revoked after she complained about a transgender person in the women's locker room.Yvette Cormier, a 48, said she was walking into the Midland Planet Fitness locker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.

    meh, planet fitness is a dump of a gym, at least where I live. Hopefully she can find a gym more suited to her needs elsewhere in that area.
    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.

    She had every right to complain.

    Love the Transgender agendas approach. Atempting to guilt people into acceptance usually backfires.

    She had every right to assume she wasnt going to be exposing herself to the opposite sex in the Women's Locker room.

    She didn't make an ass of herself, LA Fitness stepped over the line amd has adopted an eexceptionally stupid policy.

    Planet Fitness not LA Fitness.

    Planet Fitness has a right to set such corporate policy, but it is also liable for damages in a civil lawsuit for willful negligence should something unpleasant occur.

    Yes I agree she had a right to complain, of course. I understand she may have even been initially startled or concerned but once it was explained to her that was it. Her continuing to complain and going to cooperate and approaching other members like the person was some type of criminal threat and slandering them exposed her bigotry and she made an ass out of herself with her hateful and bigoted comments. Hence her membership was revoked which was funny.

    Planet fitness did it right and their policy is fine.

    I can freely admit that without being told I myself could be caught off guard and have questions and may have even brought it up to the front office but once they inform me of the situation and that they are fully aware I'm done. Any personal concerns are now mine to handle.

    Did she slander the MAN that was caught using the Womens dressing room ? How did she slander him ??

    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.
