In early 2015 a woman at a Planet Fitness gym in Midland, Michigan was changing in the women's locker room when a transgender woman entered... http://abcnews.go.com/Health/planet...rship-transgender-complaint/story?id=29465983 So my question is this: Is Ms. Cormier's concern about the policy which allows men to use the women's locker room if they identify as women valid? In other words, is she right to want to have a space to change her clothing that's protected from the presence of men? Or is a transgendered male's desire to use the women's facilities more important than any woman's desire for a female only changing/showering area? And women like Ms. Cormier should just "suck it up" and put their trepidations aside. I'm interested in the results of this poll, and the discussion I'm hoping it will spark. I'd like to know what your justification for voting one way or another is. It would be awesome if we could keep this thread on topic too!!! I'll start by saying that I absolutely think that Ms. Cormier has a valid reason to be concerned about the policy that gives men the means to enter and use the women's facilities without being questioned. There is a sense of security that's traditionally when undressing in a sex-segregated changing room. Women are victims of sexual violence at exceedingly disproportionate rates and I think they deserve this space to be free from Men regardless of anyone's gender identity. This is entirely different from restroom facilities IMO where stall doors provide a modicum of privacy and frankly I think that's adequate and honestly would have no real issue with unisex public restrooms for people to use if they so choose. Though I do sympathize somewhat with those who do object to this too. Anyway, I'm interested in seeing the response and participating in the conversation!
