Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Planet Fitness' Trans Policy Is "Legal Insanity"
Dr. Elisabeth Hasselbeck has decided that Planet Fitness' acceptance of transgender members is "legal insanity." The former reality TV contestant aired her grievances this week on an episode of Fox & Friends, along with Fox's resident transphobe, Dr. Keith Albow. Particular low points include Hasselbeck's insistence on calling the trans member at the center of the story a man and claims that inclusion of the trans community is "legal insanity."
Dr. Albow added his own brand of transphobic commentary to the mix, saying that transphobes “are being bullied into accepting things that are untrue to our core feelings.”
"It’s tough to speak about because we’re so politically correct now that we get tongue tied," he added. "We can’t say the obvious, which is this is craziness. You’re kicking out members because they feel uncomfortable that someone who seems to be a man to them and is genetically is looking at them naked when they’re unclothed as women? That’s craziness."
