    MIDLAND, MI -- A Midland County woman's gym membership was canceled after she refused to stop telling fellow gym members "a man" was using the woman's locker room.

    Yvette Cormier said the incident occurred Saturday, Feb. 28, when she entered the women's locker room at the Planet Fitness location at 701 Joe Mann Boulevard in Midland.

    "I was blocked, because a man was standing there," Cormier said. "It freaked me out because, why is a man in here?"

    Cormier said an employee at the front desk told her that the individual identifies as a woman.

    After taking her complaints to Planet Fitness' corporate office, Cormier said she was told that the gym was a "no judgement zone" and they would not tell the individual in question to stay out of the women's locker room. The person has not been identified.

    The slogan "Judgement Free Zone" is regularly used by Planet Fitness.

    Here is a look at the statement, in full:

    "Planet Fitness is committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity.The manner in which this member expressed her concerns about the policy exhibited behavior that management at the Midland club deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled."

    "I feel it's kind of one sided," Cormier said about the policy. "I feel like I am the one who is being punished."

    Meh, I'm fine with it. It's Planet Fitness' business, they can let in whoever they like or tell whoever they like to getthefuckout - just like we can all do in our homes and on our property.

    It's pretty stupid if the dude looks and acts like a dude to let him go into the womans locker room - and it's not the decision I would make, but whatever floats their boat.

    I'm feeling like a woman today. Let me look at naked ladies to make certain. Don't judge me.

    I'm not sure i agree with the woman: if i pay for a service and i dont like the way the service is managed, i take my money someplace else. if she didn't like the way the gym was being operated, find another. You protest with your wallet.

    That's one way to get out of a fitness contract.

    thats what she should have done: speak to her friends at the gym (assuming she had some) and have them all sue to get out of their contracts on the grounds of sexual assault as they feel the management's active permission of a cock in the women's locker room constitutes assault. I would expect the gym to settle just to squash the bad publicity.

    That's a lot of work to get out of a fitness club contract.

    Would you really have discussions with other people and band together and sue for harassment, hoping to settle for a cancelled membership?

    Damn... you might have too much time on your hands!

    If you're not sure if you're a man or a woman, you have serious mental issues.

    Since when do the rest of us need to change our lives to support people with serious mental problems?

    I like looking at chicks. But I've never considered going to a fitness club and "pretending" to be TG. Never crossed my mind. Who would? Just go to a strip club, or look at porn online.

    The idea that guys are faking it to look at mostly fat old sweaty chicks is a bit silly.... like dressing in raggedy clothes and buying a POS car so you can drive to food banks on weekends and get free cans of green beans. Just too much work, not enough ROI.
