Thus, the club intends to protect the children and threaten recalcitrant clients with disciplinary action and termination of their subscription.
Start the day with a swim, shower in the lifesaving club locker room, and head to work. This has been the morning routine for some Australians who live near Terrigal Beach, north of Sydney. Until the club recently changed its policy and banned nudity in its locker rooms, he says Watchman.
One swimmer commented to the paper: “I thought it was crazy, because how do you shower, dry off and change without being naked sometime?”
Signage now in the changing rooms states that showering must be done in a swimsuit. For a change, the club requires swimmers to keep a towel around their body.
Disciplinary penalties for the insubordinate
With these new rules, the club intends to protect children from nudity. In the event that this new system is breached, the club’s clients are liable to penalties.
One in particular received a letter informing her that she had violated the nudity policy, and that for a repeat violation she would be “subject to disciplinary action and/or termination” of her subscription.
“This club is family, nudity is not accepted,” the company justifies.
A “very bad message” for young women
A warning that the swimmer denounced to the media. “I was almost offended, they didn’t specify what I did, but it seemed to me that it meant I almost did something sexual.”
She criticizes the club for confusing change with potential sexual behavior and feels it is a “really bad message” to send to young women who are already so focused on hiding their bodies that they often feel “ashamed” of it.
For its part, the club defends itself from the sexualization of bodies and ensures that it simply wants to prevent young people who are exposed to nudity from feeling “uncomfortable”, as it has already happened, according to the general manager.
He also announced that long-term work is planned on these dressing rooms in order to modernize them and organize individual cabins.
