An Alaska woman isn't being quiet about why her gym membership was revoked.

Patricia Silva of Fairbanks, Alaska recently recorded a video after she made a startling discovery in the Planet Fitness locker room.

"There's a man in the woman's locker room shaving, a little girl sitting in the corner," Silva detailed. "She could have been 12 years old, in a towel, kind of freaked out that there's a man shaving in her locker room."

Silva took a picture of the man and confronted him, but he assured her that his presence in the locker room was okay because of his sexuality. When Silva approached management about the situation, Planet Fitness sided with the man and canceled her membership.

"Planet Fitness is defending the man in the women's locker room rather than the child sitting in the corner with a towel wrapped around her," she reported. "I would like for you women to stand up to have a voice and stop these shenanigans."

In 2015, a Michigan woman sued her local Planet Fitness after discovering a man who claimed to be transgender in the women's locker room. Like in this situation, the company defended the man. She sued, and after several years of litigation, a court ruled in her favor, finding that the gym was at fault for violating the Consumer Protection Act.

Planet Fitness' stated mission is "to enhance people's lives by providing a high-quality fitness experience in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment, which we call the Judgement Free Zone, where anyone – and we mean anyone – can feel they belong."
