Curiouser and curiouser

On the LGBT front, things just get curiouser and curiouser. CNN tells us that Planet Fitness revokes woman's membership after transgender complaint.

Yvette Cormier "went to the front desk after someone who looked like a 'man' entered the women's locker room while she was changing." The person at the front desk, rather than react like some of us might except, told Cormier that they had "no-judgment" policy. She warned others about this problem and in the end lost her own Planet Fitness membership. Planet Fitness allows people to choose which changing room they prefer -- based on "their sincere, self-reported gender identity." Any man who reports to the front desk that he would prefer to be a woman may use the women's dressing facilities? Apparently so! Now all the "Peeping Toms" know the policy as well.

McCall Gosselin, director of public relations at Planet Fitness's corporate office, claims, "Planet Fitness is committed to creating a nonintimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity nondiscrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity."

So much for a non-intimidating environment for Yvette Cormier.

Stop the insanity!
