Nonsense. I'm only pointing out that women (whether school board members, teachers, principals or associate principals, and parents) had a role in this matter in those days by mandating and approving the policy.
As you just admitted the draft started in 1940 but the policy started long before that. Therefore, the draft had nothing to do with its creation or perpetuation.
And why does it matter, assuming that you speak from experience or otherwise on the basis of hard fact, that women were involved? Women give birth to all boys, after all, and most men were raised, at least in no minor part, by women.

If you are serious in your research, I would try a few German boards. I've been told it's common practice over there.
BTW, your Voodoo hex will not work on females pretending to be male! They are probably some of the worst offenders.
You think Ol' Flydipper might have been "serious"? You can't be serious... He hasn't returned once since his inaugural comment on this thread. At least not by that name. I suspect that he didn't elicit the sort of "memories" he'd hoped for.

But he is developing, he should be independent and not sexually belonging to women.

In my opinion, I think it's the recent empowerment of mothers that has enabled them to put a stop to it. I've even heard tails that some didn't even want their sons to go bare chested at school. In short, their mollycoddling eventually reached the schools.

Actually it was the enpowerment of pedomums, who believe in the dominance of poor young men. Why can't girls attend nude?

That's not what I asked. I asked why it matters that women served on school boards, assuming they did so along with men, when these policies were adopted .

That is correct - a mother in the Milwaukee area filed a lawsuit in the late 70s under Title IX and the school board was forced to allocate money to buy bathing suits for boys to be used in swim class. Thereafter, other school boards did the same as they had no choice under the law.

Nudity was required partly because of the need to keep the pool water clean. Girls have to cope with their menstrual cycle, which poses a risk to the water.

That's not good enough for those who want this to have been the manifestation of female sexual dominance. They choose to overlook the fact that men were largely behind these policies and ultimately responsible for them. To acknowledge that fact would remove the sexual motivation behind nude swimming in schools, and without that there is no sexual fantasy... Except for the lovers of bare-assed young boys who may not require female participation to make the forced-nudity scenario work for them sexually.

If you had a boob job, you might want to show them off. Little point spending thousands on them and then hide them away :-)

Swimsuits wouldn't prevent menstrual fluid from getting into the water,so your point makes no sense.

They could use a tampon, if only for thw swimming session. Correct me if I'm wrong Ladies, but I think the costume would help to keep it in place.

A swimsuit isn't needed to keep it in place,although the little string hanging out would look funny.

Imagine a man his age believing that a tampon would fall out without a swimsuit to "hold it in"? Does he need a Speedo to hold his butt plug in?
