This is an interesting one. A woman had her gym membership revoked as she was bitching to other female patrons a man was being allowed to use the female changing room. The article seems to indicate this person is still physically a man but "identifies" as being a woman.
Yvette Cormier said the incident occurred Saturday, Feb. 28, when she entered the women's locker room at the Planet Fitness location at 701 Joe Mann Boulevard in Midland.
"I was blocked, because a man was standing there," Cormier said. "It freaked me out because, why is a man in here?"
Cormier said an employee at the front desk told her that the individual identifies as a woman.
The woman complaining had her membership canceled by corporate:
Planet Fitness 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. The manner in which this member expressed her concerns about the policy exhibited behavior that management at the Midland club deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled
Not sure how to deal with treating both sides fairly, but let's face it, this policy is ripe for abuse.
