The Transgender Patron In The Women's Locker Room Doesn't Even Belong To Planet Fitness?? She's Speaking Out!

Planet Fitness isn't just a normal gym… it's supposed to be a "judgement free" zone.

According to their slogans and advertising at least.

So when Yvette Cormier was judging a transgender woman in the women's locker room, and rallying fellow gym members against her, Planet Fitness revoked her membership.

Now, that transwoman Carlotta Sklodowska is speaking out! She said:

"I'm not actually a member. I was there as a guest of one of my friends. [The Gym staff said] 'use the locker room that corresponds with how you are dressed.' […] I have loads of friends around town. They are all straight ladies. We have wonderful times together."

So it turns out Carlotta was only in the locker room to briefly hang up her belongings and then only went back in to grab her things later.

She said she has tons of straight female friends and has never had a single complaint when she's been in a women's restroom.

Cormier, the woman whose membership was revoked, said:

"I feel [the policy is] kind of one-sided. I feel like I am the one who is being punished. I didn't go out to specifically bash a transgender person that day. I was taken aback by the situation. This is about me and how I felt unsafe. I should feel safe in there."

We get that she might've felt uneasy at first, but that's no reason to go around "warning" others.

What we all need is a little education and a whole lot more tolerance.
