‘You are a Man With a P*nis, Why Are You in the Women’s Locker Room?’

DEVELOPING STORY: Planet Fitness defended its decision to revoke the membership of a woman who complained about a LGBT man she found shaving in the ladies locker room.

Patricia Silva posted video of the incident which you can watch below after the ads play. She said a 12-year-old girl was “sitting in the corner in a towel kind of freaked out there’s a man shaving in her locker room.”

“I was offended,” she said. “I took a picture of him and I asked him why was he there? You are a man with a penis. Why are you in the women’s locker room.”

Silva said Planet Fitness defended the man in the locker room and canceled her membership.

“I took that picture because I felt like I was in an unsafe space,” she said.

Planet Fitness says the woman violated its policies on filming inside a locker room as well as violating its gender identity non-discrimination policy.

“As the home of the Judgement Free Zone, Planet Fitness is committed to creating an inclusive environment,” a Planet Fitness spokesperson told television station KOMO. “Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use the gym facilities that best align with their sincere, self-reported gender identity. The member who posted on social media violated our mobile device policy that prohibits taking photos of individuals in the locker room, which resulted in their membership being terminated.”

Phil Lyman, who is running to be the next governor of Utah, said it is a case of transgender rights superceding women’s rights.
