What can be so offensive about a bikini that means women can get arrested for wearing one? Well, Myrtle Beach police had a pretty strong idea. But now the arrested acrobat has responded with an amazing YouTube video!
And wearing layers of clothing is never ideal when you’re sat soaking up the sun.
But as long as we aren’t completely naked, wearing what we want should be okay.
It turns out that wearing swimwear in public spaces is not okay… well, according to certain people, anyway.
And sometimes, it’s even to the point where the police are called to get involved. Can you believe it?
Hm, can someone pour me a glass of double standards, please?
Firstly, this occurred in New York’s Freedom Lake last week…
A young woman was interrupted during her relaxing day in the sun due to her choice of swimwear.
It was a very hot day and Aurea was wearing a bikini, which many other women were also wearing on that day.
The woman is heard abruptly asking, “You see those group of boys over there?”
And the woman then says, “Those are my boys. They’re staring at your a** which is hanging out in the middle of a public place.”
“Do you need a pair of shorts? Because I have an extra pair,” she then asked Aurea. And she hit back with, “I mean get your a** covered, that’s what I mean. Thank you.”
Well, why don’t you tell “your boys” to stop staring?
And the mom said, “Yeah, there is. It’s called nudity. You can’t be nude on a beach like this. It’s a public place.”
And she also says she spoke to workers at the park who told her swimsuit was fine to wear.
And comments were left such as:
“Why is it inappropriate around kids? It’s just a body. Everyone has one. It’s just making you all uncomfortable because you’re sexualizing it.”
“People will blame anyone but themselves. Teach your kids to not stare, and don’t get pressed because you’re jealous of someone else. She can wear whatever she wants and the fact that y’all are mad about it shows how insecure you are. Go be mad somewhere else.”
It’s so 2009.
Why not teach boys and men to avert their eyes off it bothers them so much? Or here’s a better idea, tell them to grow out of their misogyny if they still see women as sexual objects.
Acrobat, Sam Panda, was detained by police on Myrtle Beach after her wearing what has been described as an “offensive bikini.”
When they arrived on the scene, they immediately arrested Sam, as her friend tried to stop them and ask for clarification as to why she was being arrested.
According to whatever rulebook they were going off, the exposure of Sam’s butt was a bit too much for some people to handle? At first, she tried to object, so the squad decided to call back-up.
Yes, they called back up for an “offensive bikini.”
According to the Myrtle Beach police initial call was “a report of 2 women “who were wearing thong bikinis and a see-through top that were dancing and soliciting videos on the beach.”
See-through top? Let me know where you’re seeing that because the pictures say different.
After that, they were released without charges. I mean, are the police really lacking in jobs to do that they took this one so seriously? They called back-up because Sam started “walking off” in a thong bikini. What?
“A woman decided that my body was offensive to her and showed her child that her body could one day lead to her arrest.”
This user commented that the Karen must have been jealous and I truly wouldn’t put it past her.
The police must have a lot of free time on their hands these days…
Imagine creating all that drama with a straight face? Crazy stuff.
And now Samantha has spoken out.
With an episode of her podcast called “Disorderly Thong-duct.”
Love the pun.
“We break down what happened, how much we love women, and how slut shaming is UNACCEPTABLE.”
