Should fat women in swimsuits be a crime?
Here is a story (see link below) in which a man was arrested for wearing a woman’s swimsuit. He was sitting on a log on his property when the police arrested him. He was arrested for indecent exposure and menacing. Of course, he did not actually expose himself. And he never physically or verbally threatened a woman. However, many women called the police to complain he made them feel “uncomfortable.”
In the spirit of gender equality, I think men should follow the precedent and call 911 whenever we should see a fat woman in a bathing suit. I know such a sight makes many men feel uncomfortable. Hopefully, the police will use the same standard and arrest such women.
