Planet Fitness Welcomes Men in Women’s Locker Rooms, Kicks Out Objector

On Saturday, Feb. 28 Yvette Cormier entered her Midland, Michigan Planet Fitness gym to work out. To her surprise, she found a man just inside the locker room entrance. She reported the incident to the front desk and was told that the man “identifies” as a woman and that Planet Fitness gyms—including their locker rooms—are “no judgment zones.” It should be noted that girls as young as 13 can join Planet Fitness and enjoy their “no judgment zones.”

When working out the next week, Cormier warned other women that a man is permitted to use the women’s locker room. For that grave cultural sin, the gym has revoked her membership, asserting that Cormier had violated their “no judgment” policy. Oh, the ironies…

Before expelling her from the club for being “inappropriate and disruptive,” the Planet Fitness corporate office asked Ms. Cormier if she would stop telling other women about the man in the locker room. She properly said “no,” she would not stop. They then judged her behavior to be unacceptable and canceled her membership, issuing this absurdist public statement:

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.

In the service of maintaining a “non-intimidating, welcoming environment,” corporate bigwigs allow a man in a women’s locker room and expel a woman from the gym because she doesn’t want to get naked in front of a strange man. Yes, the man in question was an actual man—you know, the kind born with anatomically correct penises. Even “transactivists” know humans can’t change their sex.
