Some heroes don’t wear capes — they wear nothing at all.
A Canadian woman is traveling the land lodging complaints against hotels who ban her from swimming topless. The latest is her complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario against Calypso Theme Waterpark, who refuse to change their policy against topless swimming.
Attorney Marie-Pier Dupont says her client, who does not wish to be named, was prompted to file a complaint when she was searching for a hotel for the occasion of her husband’s birthday.
According to Dupont, the legal basis for the complaint stems from Section 1 of the Ontario Human Rights Code, which says that every person has a right to equal treatment with respect to services, goods and facilities, regardless of sex or gender.
“It’s very simple. At all of those facilities a man could show up without a top, and he would be allowed to swim that way,” said Dupont. “But they discriminate against women because of some type of different conception of the woman’s breast versus man’s breast.”
Of course things could go horribly wrong here — Canada could decide to make men cover up.
The U.S. has always had a provincial attitude toward boobs, and if Trump wants a real distraction from his Russia problem he could make all public swimming facilities clothing optional. As Monty Python told us, there is nothing embarrassing or nasty about the human body, except for the intestines and bits of the bottom.
