    Alaskan High School Swimmer Disqualified Because Suit Was Too Revealing

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nati...ge-swimmer-disqualified-wedgie/?noredirect=on

    But apparently, all the athletes wore the same swimsuit, issued by the school. This seems rather silly.

    So, that's the standard then. "Butt cheek shall not touch butt cheek."

    I would also wonder why they disqualified her after she won the event.

    I wonder why officials so often want to use harsh sanctions,
    when some discreet advice could solve the problem.

    FFS! We wore more “revealing outfits” back when I was in school swimming. That offical needs to get a life.

    Lots of people are contesting the ruling and may yet reinstate her victory.

    I'm so old I remember when the YMCA frowned upon any swim suits at all.

    Wow. So what did people wear to swim? A large clouded plastic sheet or something? Or like those old timey beach wear from the olden days?

    It was all male.
    Nude.

    I was only 6 y/o. I wore trunks, the other kids in my class did, and our teacher did. But the older guys didn't. I kinda thought that swim suits were only for little kids and when I grew up I wouldn't have to wear one either.:)

    I remember nude swim at the YMCA too. I also remember when Dawn Fraser wanted to swim nude at Melbourne, said she'd be significantly faster.

    It sounds like the female version of the banana hammock called Speedos. They are not worn for sexuality, they are worn for performance. The poor girl appears to have had a bit of a wedgie.
    I guess that they will have to equip swimsuits with stirrups like some throwback baseball pants have. That ought to preserve our innocence:rolleyes:

    Yeah that’s a good point. Why is an official (presumably an adult) looking at an underage girl’s buttocks. Creepy much?

    The official needs a sense of helpfulness rather than punishment.

    How can one not look?
    It's about an appropriate reaction, not the seeing.

    The official news to stop sexualising underage minors. I’d hate to see what he (or she) would do at the beach.

    I’ll grant you that seeing a wedgie does draw the eye involuntarily. Usually in polite society one discreetly mentions this to the wearer of said wedgie so the wardrobe can be adjusted. To disqualify them for inappropriately showing skin is beyond strange. And honestly causes a great deal of embarrassment needlessly. And to do that to a teenager is kind of reprehensible in my view. The adult in the scenario should know better.

    That's what the Y was avoiding.

    There weren't any synthetic fabrics, tiny nylon Speedos didn't exist. The cumbersome suits were made of cotton and wool. The guys were required to shower, nude with soap, before getting in the pool. But who knew how clean the suits were? What contaminants or infection they could carry into the water?

    Swimming nude was considered more hygienic.

    It's the Young Men's Christian Association.

    At the time, the existence of Christian pervs was not acknowledged. The world was a different place back then.

    So this guy shows up Monday morning with a black eye!

    The other guys say, "Where'd ya get the shiner?"

    He says, "In church!"


    "Ha, we dont believe ya. How could that be?"

    "It was like this, there's this fat lad in front of me, when
    we get up to sing, i sees her dress is stuck in there,
    and I know how uncomfortable that must be, so I
    just give it a tug to help her out and she hit me!!"

    Hmm, ok, but ya sure is a dumb shyt.

    NEXT monday, a new black eye!

    OK Ok so ya got that in church too I suppose???


    "Yes, it was the same lady, only this time I sees
    her dress is not stuck in there, and by now I know
    how much she hates that, so I just goes to tuck it
    back in where she wants, and she ups and hits
    me again!!"

    True story.

    If there's still an all male Y, I'm unaware of it. They're all coed.

    But yeah, guys still swim nude sometimes. My old church has a men's group. Camping out on the shore of a nice lake is a regular event. Skinny dipping happens.

    ETA ~Although I have noticed that young guys tend to be more shy than older guys. I think that they are just more aware that there's guys looking at them the way they look at girls.~
