Woman Loses Her Fitness Club Membership For Not Respecting Another Member's Gender Identity

By Amanda Andrade-Rhoades, Fri, March 6, 2015
A Planet Fitness in Midland, Michigan, has revoked Yvette Cormier’s membership for not respecting the gender identity of another member.

An unnamed member who identifies as a woman walked into the women’s locker room.

"I was stunned and shocked," Cormier told WNEM. "He looked like a man ... He did not look like a woman."

The member was getting undressed when Cormier walked in, and she said she felt threatened.

“This is very unprofessional,” Cormier said. "This is very scary."

Cormier complained to the front desk and contacted Planet Fitness’s corporate offices.

"They told me the same thing, that he was allowed in there because that's the sex he wants to be," Cormier said.

Planet Fitness revoked Cormier’s membership for violating its no judgement zone policy. She said she’s not concerned about getting her membership back, but she does want to inform others of the incident.

Planet Fitness said Cormier acted inappropriately. A statement from the company read: ”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.

“In expressing her concerns about the policy, the member in question exhibited behavior that club management deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled." ... r-identity

Wait a minute--they sure didn't create a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for this woman. Apparently they need a third dressing room for people who don't know what the heck they are,

So any guy could use the lady's change room if they claim they self-identify as female? That's a pretty big exploitable loop hole.

This leaves the door wide open for genders to claim gender-identity just to be in the opposite sex locker rooms. Leave the doors open for sexual assault as well as making opposite sex clients very uncomfortable. You should be required to use which ever locker room your plumbing dictates. I don't care if you have a penis and think you a woman, YOU'RE NOT. You're a man biologically and that's all that counts.

How is that a loop hole for sexual assault? If a guy wants to sexually assaulted a female in the locker room he will do it no matter what he labeled himself into. Same goes to female looking for a male to sexually assaulted. You're telling me by labeling yourself as what, "biologically counts", wouldn't be a problem anymore, as if any individual couldn't rape and or, assault someone in the opposite sex.

Bet they change that policy pretty damn fast when a woman sues them because they let a man into the changing room and he raped someone! This is stupid as hell. This crap is getting way out of hand MEN WITH PENISES SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED WHERE WOMEN ARE CHANGING PERIOD! SAME AS A WOMAN WITH A VAGINA SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED WHERE MEN ARE CHANGING. If they want to be female then cut that damn thing off then they can be where women are,

What a bunch of crap. Men in men's room and women in women's room . It doesn't matter if you think you are a women. I wouldn't want to see a mans junk just because they want to be a women.

I would feel as equally uncomfortable as this woman did, if someone walked in on my wife changing and claimed the same as this person did. We must begin to protect our wives and daughters now and protest this Company's policy immediately!!! And if they are resistant to listen and to change, I urge everyone to cancel their memberships and to join up with one of the competitors of Planet Fitness. This must not be allowed to stand & continue!!!

God knows I wouldn't want to be judgmental or anything but people should use whatever locker room their genitals reflect. That's the only way to avoid abuse of the policy.

Why is it that the woman was punished? She wasn't being judgmental. She was telling them how she felt. Why is it that if our feelings don't reinforce the liberals....then WE'RE being judgmental? WOW!

If they are going to cater to ignoramooses who can't look between their legs and identify what sex they are then they need a gender neutral dressing room just for them. A woman should not have to abide a guy looking at her undress in a locker room. Just because you want to be a female doesn't mean you are.

Apparently she's going through gender reassignment. I would not feel the least bit threatened. THE LAST THING A GAY/TRANSGENDER MAN WANTS IS A DAMN WOMAN! BYE FISH!!! She was probably upset he didn't try her. Some of ya'll are so silly with your thinking. Not all gay/lesbian people want your butts. Stop with the wishful thinking. If they have gone through having their parts changed then yes they are identifying with the sex that they have changed into. Get over yourselves. Also they aren't allowing any and all men to go into a ladies locker room nor are they allowing women into a mens room. I bet if a transgender woman were to go into a mens room they wouldn't complain this hard. Shoot if anything the transgender female would have to be the one that would feel more threatened I'm sure.

The law is quite clear, he was born a man and his government or state should state he's a male, so he has no right being in the female locker room. I would of called the police and have him charged for a sex crime!!!

There's a lot of perverted men that will pretend to be gay just to watch women in locker rooms.
