Some men can't keep their hands to themselves.
Its a good move

Just because 'some men' behave badly does not mean all men must be discriminated against for the sake of some women!

I really have no problem with that. In some countries, there are some hours reserved for women in swimming pools. Women would feel comfortable without being hit in a women-only swimming lanes.

Yes, that's obvious, from a woman's standpoint, but have you thought of the problem it creates for men?   This move is not justified; what other special privileges would women be clamoring for next?   How about a special lane for women in shopping malls to protect women from some perceived threats from men?   There is no end to it!  This craziness must stop!

Don't worry, I am here! This thread is similar to my other sexist thread!

Yes, you post plenty of seksist beliefs, including the one that females should be encouraged to show off their flesh even when it is inappropriate.

Now you see how exposed female skin acts on the reflexes of some males: It triggers inappropriate responses, and as a result, special precautions have to be taken. WHen these are taken, you are upset because "they discriminate against men". Frankly, I would rather go along with separate swimming hours for men and for women, irrespective of the "inconvenience" this creates.

Have you ever heard of naturalists? Naturalists are women and men who take off all clothes in order to feel natural and free. There is nothing erotic about this. SUch people have to join an assosication of like-minded people to enage in their pleasures. WHen they choose to meet in public swimming pools, they have to negotiate a special deal. Some indoors swimming pools for example close their facilities to members of the general public so that naturalists can enjoy themselves among like-minded members. DOes this create "inconvenience" to others? You bet it does, but tolerance prevails in most cases. When will you discover the joys and benefits of being tolerant?

You are exaggerating; I never said they shd be encouraged to show off their flesh; I merely said, wearing less in the scorching heat of summer is appropriate!
