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."

Planet Fitness locker rooms have changing areas with curtains!!! If she was so uncomfortable then maybe she should go change there behind the curtain!!!

i can honestly see both sides to the issue. My friend is transgendered and worked in the hair salon at a big box store and their corporate received many complaints about her using the womens bathroom because she still has a penis. She has grown her hair out and wears make up and has taken hormones to even have real breasts now. But some co workers didnt think she should be allowed in their rest room. that i found off because nobody watches her to go the bathroom. but in the gym, it is possible someone may seem nudity and have an issue with them in their. its a slippery slope either way i think.

I don't even want to watch the clip!! OMG There have been moments I was ok with Elizabeth - this is NOT even close to one of them.  This is clearly not showing any kind of Love of God that she holds on to so dearly!

This comment is disgusting. Just because a FTM trans person conforms less to the unrealistic image of the female body that society shoves down our throats does not mean that they are not trans or any less trans than someone who does fit that image. Looking female and looking male are antiquated and inapplicable notions because they assume gender and marginalize anyone who identifies with a certain gender but does not fit the socially engendered image of that gender. We need to stop assuming gender and stop ascribing certain looks to any particular gender.
