In my city we have an outdoor mall where during the summer they let the kids run around and splash in these water stream/fountains area. Last time I took my son in swim trunks and water shoes. A security guard came over and informed that he cannot play there unless I put a shirt on him. I was very confused as the little girls running around had on more revealing bikinis etc. I even asked her if she was going to tell all the other parent's kids to cover up and she said it's just their policy. So my question is, why is it ok for little girls to prance around in two piece bikinis yet a boy cannot be without a shirt. Wtf.

No clue - but you should put this in D&D for sure...there was just a discussion whether 2 pc was appropriate on little girls....or if they should be in one piece.

Why is it okay for a grown man to hit the beach shirtless but not a woman?



It's a strange double standard or something.



The instance you are talking about probably has more to do with exposed nipple than the amount of skin.

Do people find it inappropriate for a baby to only wear his swim shorts? Cause that's all my 7 month old wears. I didn't think it was inappropriate at all

All children should be covered up to minimize Sun exposure.
That's a really bad double standard.
