Now the woman who was born William Bruce Jenner on Oct. 28, 1949, can get a new driver’s license and Social Security card, along with all of the other government documents that everyone needs.
But will that be enough to allow the former Olympic athlete to enter the women’s locker room at Planet Fitness? Maybe. And if she does, will Caitlyn’s new legal status be enough for the women who would be changing their clothes and showering alongside her?
The answer has to be “no” for Michigan woman Yvette Cormier. She has sued her local Planet Fitness franchise and the national gym chain’s parent company because her membership was cancelled after Yvette refused to stop warning other women about a transgendered woman — male appendage still intact — that she saw in the showers.
Her suit claims emotional distress, numerous violations of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act, and an invasion of privacy were all caused by Planet Fitness’ policy of allowing transgenders to change and shower with women.
However, the judge hearing the case is having trouble dealing with the allegation at the heart of Yvette’s legal action: that simply the presence of a man claiming to be a woman in the locker room and showers of Planet Fitness constitutes sexual harassment under the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act.
If this is the standard, then unless a collapse intervenes, I see flashing becoming normalized in the near future – and maybe even public masturbation. If exposure of genitalia in a locker room is accepted, then why not on beaches, in parks, or at coffee shops. (With the exception of “cockrings,” as described in this classic HuffPo piece. At least not at first.)
As this site has long predicted, eventually sex in the open, just like eating or scratching an itch, will not just be legal – it will get normalized. You will be the screwed up one if you don’t like it. If rabbits do it in the wild, free resources will lead to it being normalized in humans eventually.
As one commenter said on Free Republic, “If women shouldn’t be bothered by showering with a tranny then the tranny shouldn’t be bothered by showering with men.”
If only common sense were common.
