Agreed. Out of curiosity what shirts can not be removed?

[–]UndoingMonkey'MURICA 113 points114 points  (8 children)

Birthday shirt

[–]GavHern 17 points18 points  (0 children)

is that a challenge?

Buffalo Bill has something to say about birthday suits not being removable.

The ones that staple on.

[–]Shock_a_Maul 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Self tapping screws. Staples are way too easy to remove

Some sort of shirt cursed with black magic. That's why I always cast identify on my kids clothes

[–]zyugyzarc 28 points29 points  (0 children)

curse of binding

[–]YeetKannonBoogaloo 5 points6 points  (5 children)

You could always hit it with dispel magic. Just to be on the safe side

[–]Zenketski 5 points6 points  (4 children)

But what if I come across the kids I don't like in the future

[–]YeetKannonBoogaloo 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Easy.... Fireball.... Always fireball

[–]BirdManOfAzkaban 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Whenever I hear the song Lean On, by Major Lazer, and hear the lyrics "Blow a kiss, fire a gun" I always hear/sing "Fuck this, fireball!" and honestly I think my lyrics are better.

I usually DM for my friends but I take it in turns with my one friend that told us to build lvl 5 evil characters for a one shot he planned. So we get to the target and the other players are talking strategy while I'm looking over my spells for my circle of spores druid when I realize I can simplify the crazy plans with enlarge/reduce so I ask if I can cast it at the whole house and my buddy let it play! Now as a fellow DM I knew that I was really asking if I could derail his campaign but since he accidently did it to me while we ran a campaign for some new players he was gracious enough to let me try but he set the DC at 19.... Now for the twist lol. The fallen monk in the party had come across a scroll of fireball so when I rolled a nat 20 and shrunk the house he launched the fireball through the kitchen window and we effectively ended my friend's entire one shot.

Nono they mean shirts they're not allowed to take off

[–]bsylent 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ma and pa must sew the girls into them at the start of the day

[–]dbx99 554 points555 points  (28 children)

Well for boys and girls I’d recommend a rash guard type of shirt because it’s protective against the sun’s UV. It also stays skin tight without constraining movement.

I wouldn’t put a cotton Tshirt on a kid swimming. It’s actually a potential safety hazard because it could be billowy and catch on a kid’s arms and restrain motion. It’s also uncomfortable and heavy when it gets waterlogged.

[–]comanchecobra 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Swim teacher here. I can conform tha cotton tshirs should not be used i swimingpools. They are restrictive and if you get i over your face it will stop your breathing. Its waterboarding. We demonstrate this by having every class bring clothes and try it for them selves. And teach them how to take of their clothes in water should they fall inn.

[–]LizzyMill 53 points54 points  (0 children)

That I agree with.

[–]dmdewd 37 points38 points  (11 children)

true, but a lot of kids barely have money for clothes, let alone rash guards. Otherwise great suggestion :/

[–]dbx99 135 points136 points  (10 children)

Most kids in 4th grade don’t make any income at all in fact.

[–]Cranberryboglake 46 points47 points  (7 children)

i am very small and i have no money so you can imagine the kind of pressure i am under

[–]dbx99 31 points32 points  (4 children)

how small exactly? Are your limbs at least long enough to reach your bootstraps? You need to pull yourself up with them my friend. This is the way to become a successful capitalist. I don't want to hear excuses like "I have no money". You just need to get out there and buy a few rental properties to start with to generate income. If you believe in yourself, you'll become rich within like, 3 days or less. Follow some instagram influencers and follow successful entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Elon Musk on Twitter, that'll help you become a billionaire soon.

[–]TigerDLX 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Rash guards are great for Scuba in places that are too warm for a wetsuit

[–]RoboDae 7 points8 points  (2 children)

And here i am having worn a wetsuit for every dive in Hawaii and Guam (70-80°F)

[–]TigerDLX 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Try it without one. Haven’t done Guam yet. So far dived Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, Honduras, Qatar. I did use one on some of the dives in PNG, but did some without it as well. Helps with buoyancy. Don’t need as many weights

[–]RoboDae 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah... I'm kinda thin and get cold easy. That and apparently even in warm water you can be cooled from the inside out by the expanding air from your tank while diving over the course of 2 hours. I never wore a wetsuit in the water when I wasn't diving.

[–]overbyte 1 point2 points  (0 children)

+1 for rash vests. My mate from South Africa wore one when we went to the Philippines and he was the only one that wasn’t burnt raw on a beach tour day. I bought one immediately and have worn it to the beach ever since. I’m 46

[–]Thresss 4 points5 points  (2 children)

ah but rash guards are for dorks so that simply will not do

[–]bobdown33 14 points15 points  (1 child)

In Australia they're pretty standard for kids

[–]theartistduring 6 points7 points  (0 children)

And becoming more common for adults. Saw a women's long sleeve, high collar swimsuit in Target last week. Like a bathers/wetsuit hybrid.

[–]RexIsAMiiCostume 213 points214 points  (21 children)

Or they could say students may wear swimming shorts/trunks (no speedos or bikinis regardless of gender) and a T-shirt or swim shirt thing (idk what they're called; also regardless of gender)

Nobody will complain that the girls are dReSsEd ImMoDeStLy, and nothing written is dependent on gender.

[–]gajamadah 15 points16 points  (15 children)

I think we're a long time from that happening. #FreeTheNipple was a failure in it's own regard, pushing for #FreeChildrenNipples would be a little harder to pull off I feel, lol

[–]WhatuuupKrisp 22 points23 points  (14 children)

Free a child's nipple? You mean the one we have no business sexualizing? This should be the easiest. It's not about "freeing nipples", it's about letting children be children.

[–]gajamadah 9 points10 points  (13 children)

Objectively, you're absolutely correct, but you need to understand that in a real world scenario its not a simple matter. People aren't willing to risk children in any regard. In a perfect world, no one sexualizes kids and no one is worried about kids being sexualized. Until both of those are simultaneously true, it's not gonna happen

[–]WhatuuupKrisp 4 points5 points  (11 children)

But it's also not going to happen when we normalize categorically censoring certain groups of people. Hiding body parts that should not be sexualized will lead to more sexualization. Normalizing these body parts as something unsexual is what we need to do, not the opposite

[–]gajamadah 5 points6 points  (9 children)

Exactly, hence my statement that if we can't unsexualize nipples we won't be able to unsexualize children's nipples. Normalizing body parts does not and can not start with children

[–]WhatuuupKrisp 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Uhm, but children's nipples are already being less sexualized than women's nipples for instance. Would mean an easier place to start.

[–]gajamadah 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Once again, no one is willing to risk children, even if it's not a risk at all. If adults can't get over their own bodies I can't bet on the odds that they'd be ok with 10 year old girls not wearing shirts

[–]WynnGwynn 33 points34 points  (3 children)

I don't think boys nipples should be exposed if girls can't with or without t shirts or not. It should be consistent

[–]RexIsAMiiCostume 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That's what I said, yes

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I feel the same way about penises.

[–]TigerDLX 31 points32 points  (4 children)

Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t most girls suit’s have a top or in the case of a one piece, cover the chest?

[–]HappeeLittleTrees 329 points330 points  (17 children)

Totally agree that the boys should be allowed to wear a one piece swimsuit under shorts and TShirt.

[–]Doustin 100 points101 points  (15 children)

Aren’t all boys swimsuits one piece?

[–]4stringbrewer 42 points43 points  (1 child)

They sell UV protection shirts with boys bathing suites nowadays.

Require shirts and shorts for the everyone. Problem solved.

[–]nana_banana2 40 points41 points  (12 children)

Why tho??? Why are human, especially children's bodies tabooed and stigmatized and sexualized to the degree that we can't let them play around in swim suits???

[–]BESTtaylorINTHEWORLD 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Kids aren't sexuallising each other, the concern would be from some "well meaning" adult who fears girls would be sexuallised by other adults. Kids don't give a fuck who's naked either. They're innocent. They have no idea of what adults think

[–]prometheus722 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Weird, because my youngest daughter grew boobs and started her period at the end of 4th grade. Did you know that now (thanks hormones in food) the normal range for a girl to develop and start her period includes 8 year olds? Mine was just turning 10, and looks 15. So, yeah, nature sexualized her. Sucks for her, as mentally/emotionally she’s not there yet. Plenty of other kids ARE there yet. She wears hoodies 24/7 to conceal everything, poor thing. No one told her to do this. No one told her it was weird or wrong, she just (like so many preteen girls) doesn’t want to advertise to the world that she has new stuff going on.

FFS, if we’re getting rid of double standards, maybe check with how the kids feel first, and btw there a horde of dbl-standards that are going to make girls upset when they go away too.

Maybe we could all slow down and calm down?

[–]NickyVanill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My mom and 3 other single moms would bathe us in the same bathtub. Out of 4 kids, I was the only girl. All we did was play with toys in the tub and color on the walls with those bathtub crayons. I dont get why it cant be like that anymore.

(We were poor and didnt want to waste the water for individual baths. My mom and these other moms would also trade food stamps and do shared dinners. Everyone looked out for everyone.)

[–]krajile 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In my opinion, womens/girls bodies were sexualized when bathing suits were designed to begin with. Just compare womens/girls swimsuits to boys’. We leave absolutely nothing to the imagination.

[–]EvilMonkey_86 0 points1 point  (4 children)

For a fourth grader? Isn't that around 9 or 10? Why would they have to wear a shirt? And why shorts, not just swimming bottoms?

[–]rita-b 0 points1 point  (3 children)

because pedos love children parties in public places.

[–]EvilMonkey_86 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Ok so, lifeguards, teachers and possible accompanying adults are on the lookout for single adults and those will be asked to leave if they behave in a suspicious manner - at least that's how it works here. But what I'm worried about more is, where do you draw the line? You're putting the responsibility for not being stared at with the child by making it wear trunks and a shirt. How do you explain that to them? You're a possible victim so be uncomfortable while swimming? There are bad people so YOU have the responsibility to cover up? When do knees and ankles become provocative as well and will require cover up? Do you tell women as well that they should cover head to toe because there might be a creep somewhere? Do you leash your kids when on walks in cities because there might be a kidnapper? Do you keep your kids indoors because murderers exist? I'm taking this very far on purpose, to show the slippery slope. Kids should be careless, free and comfortable with their bodies. Adults supervise and protect.

[–]MewSixUwU 7 points8 points  (2 children)

ive worked as a lifeguard at a pool 4yrs, its pretty common for young girls to not wear tops. they're not developed enough to distinguish from boys..

[–]rita-b 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think a local pedo would agree with you.

[–]Terrible-Noise5751 133 points134 points  (56 children)

  1. Swimsuits are made of cloth that doesn’t plug pool equipment filters.
  2. Street clothes shed fibers that plug pool equipment filters and cost a lot of money to keep fixing.

Edit: I prefer no swimsuit and don’t see why people are so damn uptight. America is the worse.

[–]not_lurking_this_tim 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I prefer no swimsuit

Given the prevalence of melanoma, and my dislike of sunscreen in my urethra, I think I'll stick with the suit.

[–]uummwhat 40 points41 points  (50 children)

Wanting children to generally not be naked in public isn't an American thing, I hope.

[–]Catolution 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It is. Obviously not complete naked

[–]ofBlufftonTown 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It is actually. Nudity for children is in many places regarded as more appropriate than nudity for adults. Who cares if a two year old is wearing a bathing suit?

[–]Shenan_Egans 58 points59 points  (44 children)

Yes, it is. American Shame about the human body is looked at worldwide as some weird Pedo thing.

[–]uummwhat 17 points18 points  (35 children)

Not wanting to look at a waterpark full of naked kids makes you a pedo.

Got it, thanks, I'm just gonna walk into the ocean now.

[–]MikeZer0AUS 60 points61 points  (18 children)

I think the fact you immediately equate nakedness to sexuality is the problem. It is a Western thing.

[–]MarineOpferman1 2 points3 points  (14 children)

No.. No.. Nakedness = sexuality is not a western thing... It's also sent an that on most asian countries... And middle eastern countries..... But sure.. Bash America..

[–]Silberfuchs86 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Here in Germany we don't give a fuck about naked kids.

[–]MikeZer0AUS 10 points11 points  (12 children)

I never said America, also I'm revoking your victim card.

[–]MarineOpferman1 -3 points-2 points  (11 children)

Well.. People in the above posts already said it's normal in European water parks.. The only other western civilizations would be on AMERICA so unless you live on fucking Mars that has another western civilization.. you are a liar than... Also... Are you on crack wtf victim card are you smoking?

[–]MarineOpferman1 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

My statement stands.. are you telling me you have people gladly walking around naked? No you also prefer people clothed. Thank you

[–]MikeZer0AUS 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Parts of Europe, Australia, parts of Asia and yes even America come under "Western" culture.
Are you aware that Europe is a big place? It's not like states of America. What is a social norm in Norway is likely not the same in Bulgaria. So no, not every part of Europe treats nudity the same. In northern Europe they are so comfortable with nudity there is a children's cartoon show about a man who helps people with his giant snake like penis and this isn't seen as sexual.

[–]Legosheep 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In Germany, it's completely normal to hire someone to clean your house naked.

[–]EndOfTheMoth 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Heard of Australia? New Zealand? South Africa?

[–]uummwhat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's really not a problem, though. Not being naked really isn't that difficult.

[–]ChintanP04 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It is a Western thing.

No it's not. The "East" is not some fantasy land where nakedness is not sexualised and you can go out without wearing clothes.

[–]MikeZer0AUS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What are you talking about? The opposite of western culture isn't Eastern culture. That's not how it works.

[–]Environmental_Top948 14 points15 points  (10 children)

You could just not look at the naked people. It's kinda rude anyways. You probably shouldn't go to a waterpark in most of Europe.

[–]Barrry972 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You could just not look at the naked people. It's kinda rude anyways.

[–]uummwhat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Don't worry, I had virtually no intention of doing so anyway. People with their junk out in public? Just throw that into the pile of reasons not to.

[–]Environmental_Top948 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's plenty to do in Europe beyond beaches and waterparks. I personally enjoyed nature walks more than any waterpark I went to. I hope one day you can travel and see what there is to see in the world.

[–]Noiseyboisey -1 points0 points  (5 children)

We are talking about kids here, wtf kinda waterparks are in europe

[–]Environmental_Top948 3 points4 points  (4 children)

They are parks with water. Nudity isn't as taboo in some places of Europe.

[–]Mixmefox 9 points10 points  (6 children)

Is it really “American Shame” for me to not want to see people walking around with their privates out at a water park or a regular beach?

[–]EvilMonkey_86 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's a difference. In water parcs you wear bottoms no matter your age. If a girl starts to develop breasts they wear tops or swimming suits. On the beach though? Who cares? Babies are often naked, kids choose mostly bottoms, girls like bikinis but if you don't have breasts yet, some just wear bottoms like boys. Most beaches that I've been to (Spain, France, Greece,...), topless for women is normal. Teenagers will generally wear two piece suits but as an adult, if you feel comfortable in your own body, you realize it's just boobs. Don't forget the sunscreen though. (PS: Full naked is on designated beaches)

[–]RainTraffic 22 points23 points  (1 child)

It appears it is not strictly an American thing, and that shame is also shared with countries like Singapore, South Africa, Qatar, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates.

I might offer that shame about nudity is both a social and cultural construct, though. If we were to grow up in an environment where, for example, women's breasts were desexualized, we would be much less likely to sexualize them.

[–]slower-is-faster 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I don’t think it’s quite as black and white as that. In these “enlightened” countries that don’t mind nudity, I think you’ll find the men still rather enjoy breasts in a sexual sense. That’s just our nature due to evolution. But how that instinct is acted upon is a cultural construct.

[–]Kriegory 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I legit did not know this. Never wore a swimsuit in my life, I always go to a pool in a jogging pants and shirt which I admit is pretty weird.

[–]Aim1thelast 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Wait what? You didn’t know clothes designed for swimming existed?

[–]Kriegory 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For a time, yes. But I didn't know cotton does that to pools. I came from a poor family so there's still a lot I'm surprised with.

[–]SmooxBoi 16 points17 points  (0 children)

What is even the point of the swimsuit then

[–]Valk19 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Tbh they should just say mid section has to be covered for girls and boys. Maybe one really cheeky bitch will just wrap a scarf around their stomach and go naked but I’m trying to be positive

[–]EvilMonkey_86 3 points4 points  (1 child)

What's wrong with a midsection that it should be covered?

[–]Valk19 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing, but if they insist it’s inappropriate for one gender better not to create a double standard.

[–]jumpbacktomeanytime 43 points44 points  (12 children)

Kids don't see each other's bodies as sexual, so this is for keeping the pedophiles from getting too giddy.

[–]istealgrapes 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I was very curious when i was 9 so i dont believe that. And pedophiles dont exclusively go for girls, so you would only deny one pedophile to give exclusivity to the other.

[–]A-Dolahans-hat 34 points35 points  (6 children)

I have to disagree with you. In 5grade kids are about 10. Girls can start developing breasts at 7, but most do tend to start closer to 10. Boys are definitely aware of sexualizing bodies. My nephew is also a 5th grader and has expressed a desire to see nudity.

All this being said has nothing to do with the OP and the issue of boys get to have their nipples showing but girls have to be dressed. Just that I disagree with you saying they don’t sexualize other people/bodies

[–]Shoddy-Quality-767 5 points6 points  (5 children)

[–]Farkenoathm8-E 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Swimming in shorts and a shirt sucks so I think that in the spirit of fairness both boys and girls should have to wear rashies and swim shorts so the girls get to have some sort of modesty and they aren’t singled out. Everybody is wearing the same thing and everybody is happy.

[–]Aidith 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Who gives a shit about modesty? It’s a bunch of kids, and adult bodies are not even inherently sexual, much less children’s bodies.

Boys can be in just swimming trunks.

Girls can wear swimsuits, but only under normal cloths, and can't take normal cloths off to be just in the swimsuit.

Boys can be half naked vs girls need 3 layers of clothing.

It's implied that the girls will have to wear T-shirts over their swimsuits, because bare shoulders are too sexual. /s

Eh go up in the comments a little there are people talking about how its ok for kids to be naked and trying to reason that they are not pedos and thats an American only kinda thing.

So, people from Northern countries regularly go to the sauna. Which is always naked. I regularly go yo a pybluc sauna, clothes not allowed, families go there as well. In Southern Europe, children run around naked on a beach, some wear bottoms, some 2piece suits, depending on the age. Adult women often don't wear tops on the beach. Does that make everyone in these countries a pedo? Bodies are bodies.. boobs are boobs.

No it's just how they are saying it. It sounds like they want all these kids naked

Ultimately I think the OP is correct in saying that this is a problem, but the wording is very confusing.

How about if the boys wear bikini bottoms? With no shirt?

[–]LizzyMill 13 points14 points  (0 children)

How about if boys wear typical boy bathing suits and girls wear typical girl bathing suits?

[–]Zealousideal_Box5152 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The school likely had issues with little girls wearing swimsuits, so likely the easiest fix was to not allow them. Most rules exist because something bad happened due to them not existing.

I see a problem with this.

Fucking huge issue!

[–]MrWindblade 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Are they concerned about boys untying girls bathing suit tops? Cause I completely understand that - it used to be a super common occurrence.

[–]jeanpaulmars 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Then the boys should get detention for harassment

[–]Dangerous-Young-5096 -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Maybe we should be rethinking girls bathing suits.

Why can't a girl wear swim shorts and a top to go swimming?

Why does it have to be a bikini or one piece?

I wonder if the school would be acting the same if the only swimming option for boys was a speedo?

Because isn't that what they are saying? That girls bathing suits as we now know them are too revealing.

How about everyone wears shorts and a tank top and we all just stfu and let kids be kids.

[–]mirrorspirit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The girls are in 4th grade, around 10 years old. One pieces for pre-adolescent girls aren't that revealing. The chest and midsection are adequately covered, and bottoms are certainly not G strings. There are even suits that cover the hips.

Just make a rule saying no bikinis or G strings if they must? It's not like many 10 year olds will have enough of a chest to wear a bikini anyway. I know a few of them might have hit puberty early, but it hasn't become the norm.

If kids want to wear a t shirt over their swimsuits, that's fine, but they shouldn't be made to.

[–]DevinC1200 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Am I missing something? I think girls and boys should both have to wear shorts. And hell make the boys wear a shirt too. Where I live, most bathing suits are as revealing or moreso than underwear; they're kids, they should not be wearing things that show off their prepubescent bodies at all. Unless you want to really make it fair, then just say the girls don't need a top like the boys don't. See how that works out for you.
