Mom divides the internet after complaining about 'stark naked dad' in male changing room
A mom who took to UK parenting site Mumsnet to complain about a father of three girls who she said stripped "stark naked in front of his daughters" in a male changing room has truly divided the internet.
The woman, with the username 'Pinkboa', opened up about the 'incident' in a post titled 'Bare bum in dressing room, AIBU' with the intention of seeing whether other Mumsnet users thought she was being unreasonable.
She explained that she tends to use the men's changing room when taking her two-year-old son for his swimming lessons as the women's is normally packed.
It was there that she saw the father "drop his pants", explaining that he was standing right by the door so if another parent walked in with their child, they would have "walked into his" his privates.
The mom then bemoans the fact that the man chose to undress out in the open when there were cubicles available.
This pet sitter was caught on a doggie cam naked inside a client's home:
Read the post in full:
"I take DS to swimming. I got the times wrong turned up for the wrong lesson. I decide to go back to the changing room to wait. I find it hard to breath in the pool area, 30 minutes is ok, an hour and I can feel my asthma begin to act up.
"There is a dad there getting his daughters dressed (fine) he was in the pool and he's down to his underwear. Another dad arrives with his son, him and my DS are in the same lesson. Anyways dad of daughters decides to get dressed... he drops his pants and is stark naked in front of his daughters. He is also by the door so if another parent was coming in their child would have walked into his penis! And it wasn't less than a minute because he was drying himself as well...
"There are cubicles. He could have used a towel as well. Why would and adult choose to get naked in a dressing room at a swim lesson for children with strangers around. AIBU to find it bizarre? His bum was also hairy and unattractive."
The unnamed woman then gives the floor to her fellow Mumsnet users. However, they weren't exactly fighting her corner and expressed confusion at her complaints.
"You were sat in a changing room and you are shocked at someone getting changed? I’m confused?" one person commented.
"So you were upset because you saw a man’s penis in a male changing room?" another remarked.
"I don’t think it’s weird if he’s in the men’s changing room," a different user said.
Another said that she was “in the wrong” for being in the men’s changing rooms in the first place.
There were, however, some users who supported the mum.
"If you might be seen by other children, you don’t just let everything hang out," one user agreed. "You make a concerted effort to not inflict the sight of your naked body on other (nonconsenting) people, whatever their ages."
And the mother who posted the complaint continued to insist that it wasn't "appropriate".
"I’ve never seen other men do that. They usually use a cubicle or use a towel," she added. "I’m not fussed about nakedness, I just thought in that situation a towel would have been appropriate. I also get the inability to watch kids from a cubicle. But a towel?"
