Planet Fitness is in turmoil again after a man was arrested for being completely nude in the ladies’ locker room.

As the New York Post reported, 38-year-old Christopher Miller was arrested after entering and removing all of his clothing in the women’s locker room. He claimed to identify as a woman.

A panicked woman called 911 when the incident happened.

“It’s a man but he says he identifies as a woman, and he won’t leave the restroom,” the caller said to the 911 dispatcher. “He is just walking around and showing us his—and he won’t leave.”

Miller apparently asked a woman in the locker room to shower with him.

This incident comes right after the gym chain lost $400 million from a major stock plummet when they revoked a Christian woman’s membership. Patricia Silva had found a man shaving in a woman’s locker room at Planet Fitness and took a picture of the man who said he was “queer.”

Silva said in a Facebook video that there was also a young child in the locker room as well when the man was found shaving.

“I love him in Christ,” Silva said. “He is a spiritual being having a human experience. He doesn’t like his gender so he wants to be a woman, but I’m not comfortable with him shaving in my bathroom.”

On the Planet Fitness website, the company states, “All members will have access to restroom and locker room facilities that correspond to their self-reported gender identity to the extent permitted by applicable law.”

Just because the world allows this kind of behavior does not mean we should accept it. Canceling gym memberships, as many have already done, should be a clear message to the Planet Fitness corporation. Whether it’s Target, Bud Light or the gym, we do not have to accept the status quo perpetuated by the dominating societal norms. Our votes and how we spend our money will indicate the direction we want to see our nation go.
