Planet Fitness Responds To Trans Complaint

So a women in Michigan complained about a trans woman being in the women's change room.  Better put she had a hissy fit, made a huge scene and tried to get everyone on her side of the idiot spectrum.  Luckily Planet Fitness handled this the best way possible.  The woman (I'm not naming her because she doesn't deserve it) had her membership revoked.  Well played and they released a great statement:
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 membership of the member in question was not cancelled as a result of complaints about the policy, as we welcome all feedback from our members. Rather, the manner in which she expressed her concerns about the policy exhibited behavior that club management deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled.
