A transgender woman, asking to be identified as Carlotta Sklodowska, has stepped forward and claimed to be the person whose presence in the women’s locker room at a Midland, Michigan Planet Fitness got one female’s membership revoked for reporting seeing a man while she was getting changed.

The controversy began when Yvette Cormier complained to the gym’s front desk after seeing “a man” in the woman’s locker room. Cormier was told that he had a right to be in there because he identified as a woman. Cormier then took her complaint to the corporate offices of Planet Fitness. When she returned and began warning other women at the gym, her membership was terminated for violating the company’s “Judgment Free Zone” policy.

As it turns out, the transgender woman is not even a member of the club. “I was there as a guest of one of my friends,” Sklodowska told MLive.com, claiming to use the locker room only to hang up a coat and purse and to retrieve them afterward.
