A Fox News contributor has argued that it's "craziness" that a US gym banned a woman for being transphobic.

"It’s tough to speak about because we’re so politically correct now that we get tongue-tied," he said.  "We can’t say the obvious, which is this is craziness." "You’re kicking out members because they feel uncomfortable that someone who seems to be a man to them and is genetically is looking at them naked when they’re unclothed as women? That’s craziness," he added. More stories: Government ‘letting gay men die’ by not offering HPV vaccine to boys Shopper finds spider that can cause a four-hour erection in Tesco bananas
