Depends on where it is I guess. Pronunciation of crÍpe will obviously vary as will awareness of the term "rape culture".

Here's another company with the same name, based in Singapore: http://www.crepeculture.com.sg
Weirdly, in the top right it also seems to sell cialis.

Also, there's something in fashion called crÍpe couture, so it could be a reference to that.

A follow-up to this horrible lady from fermun's link in another thread, now suing Planet Fitness for not putting up with her shit.

As a follow up to this, I've read multiple places that the transgender woman in question is actually a man who identifies as male, but crossdresses as a sex thing, and that they were just using it as an excuse to gain access to the women's locker area. They do claim that they actually identify as female (which of course they would), but after reading posts made by them on social media, they just seem like a huge fucking creep to me. Assuming what I've read is true, I'm with the woman who complained on this one.

I'm curious too. I went through 15 pages of Google News with Planet Fitness as the keyword and have not turned up anything but the original story and the reactions from places like FRC.

Here's a screenshot of a post they allegedly made on Facebook. A lot of sites have this and other screenshots. Admittedly, some of them are hate sites, and to them, this just reinforces their fucked up hate of people who are actually transitioning.



There's other posts where they mention going to strip clubs and stuff like that. Reportedly, they really are just a man who crossdresses, and are not intending to actually transition from male to female. I know this is a dicey subject, but I can fully understand why the woman complained. If you look up pictures of this person, they just look like a man in bad drag, and I can't really blame the woman who complained for thinking it was inappropriate for them to be in the women's locker area.

Though, if anyone finds anything that completely contradicts those accounts, I'd love to see it.

Interesting. I would really like to see more about this because none of this turned up on anything I searched (I didn't click any hate sites though). Some trans people don't pass and might appear to others as "men in bad drag" and drag has been a community that trans people  historically took part in because it's about as safe as any community could be for them (although drag as part of transitioning is less common nowadays, this was more of a thing in the 70s and 80s).

For right now I am hesitant to assume either way because of all these factors, but if that is the case then yes the woman definitely had a legitimate complaint.

I looked at snopes and they didn't seem to address any of the issue at all. This is the first time snopes has ever failed me. DISAPPOINTMENT.

I want to clarify I don't mean any offense to anyone who is transitioning but does not pass. I would never refer to them as men in bad drag.

Anyway, like I said, it is a dicey situation, and how do you tell someone's true intent? I posted the one specific comment from late last year where they refer to themselves as male, but then, the woman who complained obviously never saw that comment prior to her complaint.

*picture*

dude, censor the name.

I know this is a dicey subject, but I can fully understand why the woman complained.

I don't get this. Neither a submission fetish, nor referring to yourself as cisgendered in the past (which would apply to most trans people), nor liking tits make you less of a woman. But aside and reminder, we're still assuming someone tracked down the anonymous person in question and isn't victimizing some rando who fit the profile they wanted to get out into the ether.


Reportedly, they really are just a man who crossdresses, and are not intending to actually transition from male to female.

Cool, but. Understand. People "transition" by recognizing and accepting their gender as different from what they were assigned at birth. Some change themselves physically, but some can't, and some won't. It's all legit. There's no litmus test.


Anyway, like I said, it is a dicey situation, and how do you tell someone's true intent?

How do you tell cis women aren't closet trans men?  How do you categorize intersex women with  male parts and testosterone? How lesbians, man. A question like this forms with the confidence one's own gender would never be tried in public.


I posted the one specific comment from late last year where they refer to themselves as male, but then, the woman who complained obviously never saw that comment prior to her complaint.

Reminder from the original story:

Quote
She feels Planet Fitness could provide a third locker room for transgender people.

The lady who lost her membership doesn't want any trans women around her changing room. It's random outsiders who've been chasing the idea this other woman is faking her identity.

dude, their name already appears in news articles talking about this story.

also, i don't get why you're being so argumentative when you're not really adding anything to the discussion that wasn't already said.

Anyway, like I said, it is a dicey situation, and how do you tell someone's true intent?

like, i don't even know what is going on here. it looks like you're saying the same thing i did, only you're being a dick about it. what is your problem?

I'm not saying any of this to be mean or try to push you into a corner. Please understand where I'm coming from.

You agreed it was probably inappropriate for her to be in the women's locker area "if what [you] read is true," then for everyone's consideration posted more information you had found, somewhere. I'm not trying to punish attempts at nuance -- and maybe you know something incredibly damning, personally -- but what has been posted doesn't carry real weight and framing the discussion as if it does lowers the bar for trans people to have their identities scrutinized.
