I think the headline is a bit misleading. This doesn't seem completely unreasonable.

So if a 13 - 15 year old child was in there getting dressed after a swim, you're suppose to wait for them to leave?

Or you are a parent of a child getting your own child dressed? Better not change yourself unless there is another adult present.

They need to get over themselves. Nudity in a changing room is completely normal and not sexual regardless of age. If they really care that much they can always provide curtains or private booths.

It's weird that ultra violent massacres are perfectly fine but any amount of nudity is verboten.

Can you direct me to the policy saying ultra violent massacres are perfectly fine?

That policy doesn’t seem unreasonable, but the sign posted doesn’t say anything about children. It reads:

No Nudity in Change Rooms

Shower in your Swimming Costume / Change with a towel around you

If you are caught breaching the Rule you will be called before the clubs disciplinary committee

Report all breaches to a Board member, MP or the Patrol

We're gonna end up with a generation of fucking weird kids who think seeing a naked adult in a changing room is child abuse.

So what, just wear your wet clothes under your dry clothes after you shower in them?

Why is everybody obsessed with pedophilia now?

Because every accusation is a confession.

Because everyone agrees pedophiles are awful and if they don't hate the person you say is a pedophile then they are one

Such a good hook. We need to adopt "row" into American English.

Is it safe to assume it's nottheonion because of the policy, not because of the members' response?

Reddit consensus is very fickle
