A 20-year-old was ordered to step out of the pool because her swimsuit was allegedly inappropriate attire and might make some boys get excited.
Tori Jenkins lives in Smoking cross apartments in Knoxville, Tennessee. She went to her apartment public pool with a few friends and her fiance. The manager ordered her to leave because her bathing suit was 'inappropriate' for that environment. The leasing consultant said she was too curvy & her swimsuit will excite teen boys. It's embarrassing for her, especially because her bathing suit was a one piece and covered mostly everything until the backside rode up her cheeks like a monkey climbing a tree.
Jenkins had been swimming at the pool at the Smoking Cross Apartments with five of her friends and her boyfriend for just three minutes when the leasing consultant said her ‘thong bathing suit’ was inappropriate.
The consultant then called her to his office and told her to pose for pictures so she could see the problem herself.
‘I know what I look like, I bought this myself, it’s not a thong,’ Jenkins responded.
The consultant then accused her of misunderstanding the situation because she didn’t have kids herself and said he wouldn’t want her around his own kids.
He then said that a normal bathing suit ‘covers the whole butt’.
Jenkins says she was asked to look in the mirror to see the problem. She was asked to pose for pictures inside the consultant's office to prove indecency of her dress. The consultant asked Jenkins to wear another bathing suit that covered her whole backside because she is more curvy than some other women.
Tyler Newman, her fiance, posted pictures of his 'humiliated' girlfriend on Facebook to share this embarrassing story. She gained many sympathizers on social media as soon as this story went viral. Her story was shared around 18,000 times on Facebook. She was amazed by the overwhelming support and thanked people for taking her side on a ridiculous matter.
I'd just like to say on my own behalf that I'm really amazed by all of the overwhelming support I've received,' Jenkins wrote on her Facebook page, after her story had been shared close to 18,000 times.
'Thank you all, you really don't know how much it means to me. It hasn't even been that long since it happened but I can tell you that I've felt really sh***y about myself since. Being distracted by friends and work and your wonderful comments have made this process a whole lot easier. '
She received thousands of comments on her post. Most of the people agreed that the manager did something wrong. I don't see a problem with her bathing suit and neither did thousands of others on Facebook.
This incident turned out to be a body shaming story for Jenkins.This left her embarrassed and wanting to be isolated. People tried to support her on Facebook by posting comments in favor of her body and her side of the story.
Every thing has a list of pros and cons. There were some hateful and sexual comments that led Jenkins to delete one of her pictures.
'And if it happens to you, keep your head high and only pay attention to the positivity in your life. Don't let anyone make you feel less than you're worth.'
Jenkins stated that whole point of posting the story is to make people feel comfortable in their own skin. The response she received surely spreads this lesson very well. Jenkins learned to keep positive in bad situations.
Her swimsuit is not very revealing unless it's forced into her crack, but that can happen with ANY swimsuit for women. She just happens to have larger assets and it would require a pair of pants for her to cover absolutely everything. What is she supposed to do? Sew her own full size swimsuits to satisfy everyone? That's nonsense. It's just a bathing suit and it's not even a revealing one. What kind of lame pool manager kicks a girl out because he sees a little cheek?
Why should she be thrown out of the pool because boys look at her? It's not like they haven't seen a grown up in a bathing suit before. If someone can't handle people in their bathing suit, then they shouldn't be at a pool.
This story proves how asinine people can be. It's time to fight back against this nonsense. Grow up people, it's just a bathing suit.
HERE'S WHAT THE BATHING SUIT LOOKS LIKE! IS THIS A REASON TO KICK HER OUT OF THE POOL?
