Don't worry, the bill was defeated in a 6-5 vote. No need to worry about your bathrooms in Charlotte yet.

Really, if a man wanted unlimited access to the women's locker room so he could see women undressing all he would have to do is 'identify' as a woman? Don't know about the rest of you gals but that would make me leary of going there.

Man! Did I predict the future, or what?

Planet Fitness cancels woman's membership after her complaints of transgender woman in locker room

MIDLAND, MI -- A Midland County woman's gym membership was canceled after she refused to stop telling fellow gym members "a man" was using the woman's locker room.

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.

After taking her complaints to Planet Fitness' corporate office, Cormier said she was told that the gym was a "no judgement zone" and they would not tell the individual in question to stay out of the women's locker room. The person has not been identified.

The slogan "Judgement Free Zone" is regularly used by Planet Fitness.

A statement released by McCall Gosselin, public relations director for Planet Fitness, states that members can use the locker room corresponding with their personal gender identity.

Cormier disagrees with the policy and feels it's a safety issue.

According to Cormier, she returned to the gym each day between Monday and Thursday. While there, Cormier said she told women in the locker room about the individual she observed in the bathroom the weekend before.

Cormier said she then got a call from Planet Fitness' corporate office telling her that she was violating their "no judgement" policy. She says they asked if she was going to stop talking to other women in the locker room and she said she would not.

Cormier said the representative told her she was no longer welcome at the gym.

Many public parks and other public places children go that a true predator could pretend to make the change even over the long term to get access to areas little girls or little boys in the bathrooms. A guy predator could very we'll pretend to be transgender to get in the women's bathroom to access potential victims whether children, teens, or adults. A female predator could very well pretend and play the transgender card to gain access to potential victims in the men's bathroom whether children, teens, or adults.

The ordinance was to broad in the definition of transgender and proof of such.

Wait. It will not be long before such as mentioned above happens.

Now given the transgender people may use whatever bathroom the feel comfortable in. They should be as respectful that their presence may make other uncomfortable as they feel using the other bathroom.

It is a two way street.

Don't know about the building I am in and the 300 people in it. I may start taking a dump in the trash can at my desk and sitting it in the bathroom. Let somebody else clean it up.

Considering I work in Charlotte.

I find it unusual that the possibility exists a woman who could be man in a woman's body under going change could when a man turn out to be gay.

I think they politicians should have include in the ordinance that a transgender person using a bathroom should have an established and continued history of such before such ordinance should apply.

Someone just realizing he/she is a transgender person should establish a history whether a week or year of such before immediately starting to use whichever bathroom. How to establish and prove such for those who don't undergo radical change etc, I have no idea.

Somehow there

I may start taking a dump in the bushes next to News 14. Claim I am an all naturist and using bathrooms is is restrictive and demeaning to my person.

If this discussion acknowledges the trans-activists being uncomfortable in what they deem the wrong "feeling" bathroom, what's the difference in a woman, in a bathroom, being uncomfortable by his presence? Isn't she as uncomfortable? Isn't it her right to feel accomodated, as well?

gwliar, it's not a joke. In some locales, the activists are demanding a third bathroom bc they aren't comfortable in EITHER men's or lady's restroom. Don't know WTF they want to call it, maybe cisgender?

I remember living in Greensboro, NC during the civil rights marches and going to eat at F.W. Woolworths right around the corner. There were signs on the counters, WHITE ONLY and COLORED ONLY. Then there were also signs on the water fountains and bathrooms...WHITE ONLY, COLORED ONLY.

That was so long ago was trying to remember...did they have four bathrooms? One for 'COLORED' males and one for 'WHITE' males, then one for 'COLORED' females and one for 'WHITE' females? If so that was a lot of bathrooms! Four bathrooms in all.

Always felt like it was a huge mistake to put signs up like that. Was happy to see the signs go!
