Here’s why conservative columnist Matt Walsh is QUITTING Planet

Planet Fitness decided that their “no judgment zone” was actually one filled with judgment — for those who don’t toe the liberal line, anyway — and kicked a woman out for being uncomfortable with allowing men to parade around in the women’s locker room. Now, Matt Walsh is firing back in an epic blast telling Planed Fitness exactly why he’s quitting them in response.

Now, because you need this written down like it’s a divorce filing, I thought I should tell you why our relationship isn’t working out (pun very intended). You might call it “irreconcilable differences.” Or you might just say I was utterly disgusted and perplexed when I read this story about a woman named Yvette Cormier, who quite reasonably felt intimidated and uncomfortable when she encountered a man in a Planet Fitness women’s locker room. She expressed her concerns to your staff, and then to your corporate office, but she was informed that because the man “identifies as a woman,” he is free to use the bathrooms and changing facilities of actual women.

And as if so profoundly violating the privacy of your female customers wasn’t enough, you then proceeded to ban Ms. Cormier as punishment for complaining. If that lady has the audacity to feel threatened by a man who waltzes into the locker room while she’s potentially exposed, she isn’t welcome in your place of business, you announced.

I find this policy and your decision idiotic, repulsive, asinine, irresponsible, backward, and insane. I couldn’t possibly continue giving you my money after something like this, but, in all honesty, I should have broken up with with you long before. You guys are just so cheap, and I’m such a tightwad that the marriage seemed destined to be.

But I was mistaken.

Planet Fitness really stepped in it this time, as plenty of people are speaking up now to say how they, too, would feel uncomfortable with allowing a pervert to make themselves right at home in an area that is supposed to be a safe space for people to change and shower. And as Walsh asked, would Planet Fitness have reacted the same way if the girl complaining was 13-years-old instead of, say, 30? Somehow, it seems that the answer would be “no”.
