New reports say women are beginning to cancel their memberships with Planet Fitness out of fear for their safety following controversy surrounding a transgender woman using the female locker room.
Last week, news broke about a woman having her membership revoked after complaining about a transgender woman using the female locker room at a Planet Fitness in Midland, Michigan. The woman, Yvette Cormier, said the trans woman, Carlotta Sklodowska, looked “like a man” as she walked into the locker room, and out of fear for her own safety, Cormier complained to employees.
When employees informed her they don’t discriminate against people based on their gender identities, the angry member demanded action. Cormier ultimately lost her membership, not because of her beliefs, but as the gym noted in a statement, due to her “inappropriate behavior.”
