Alton Towers Waterpark in the UK have announced that male swimmers using ther pools are no longer allowed to wear speedos or any other kind of swimsuit other than full "board shorts". The management of the waterpark said that speedos were not "family friendly" or "appropriate." Men will also be strongly encouraged to wax their body hair at the resort.
I kid you not. Here's a link to the article: http://www.dailyexpress.co.uk/posts/view/119748/Skimpy-Speedos-ba etc ...
You would think it was Borat style "Mankini" or g-string they were talking about.
Is this PC prudery gone mad? Are we entering a new prudish Victorian era where full body thick woolen swimsuits are to be the order of the day?
Is it not just a little hypocritical/double standards that women swimmers can wear skimpy bikinis but men are now forbidden to even wear swimming trunks?
What do Gaireans think? Good riddance to the speedo or PC gone too far?
