Code Red is nothing but a bunch of immature children who live in nice houses driving their parent's cars and talking shit... that's it but that doesn't mean nothing will happen... They may do something to prove they are a man or something to act all big and bad and it’s just really annoying... just think if this is what the next generation is going to be like I give America another 20 years if that before everything collapses and then we will all know what it’s like to have a bad life. So for everyone who is supporting this ask yourself do you want your kids, your brothers, and sisters messed up in this shit and make their lives worthless because 'it's the only thing you can do to survive?' There are plenty of opportunities out there so make your life better or stay where you are and shut the fuck up and leave people alone, so they can make something out of themselves.

I prefer to see a Schoolboy in Briefs.

I think it would aid physical mobility if boys had to perform PE in just their undershorts. No restrictive tank tops or shorts, or confining shoes.
I like my women barefoot and pregnant; I like my boys barefoot and in briefs.

The only improvement I can think of is to have boys do PE in the nude.

When I was a boy in Wrexham the school master strictly enforced the no briefs and vests under our school uniform. Along with the no coats rule we went to school in just white shirt tie black shorts blue socks and brown shoes.

It made it a lot easier for gym practice when we competed in just white satin shorts before removing them and having our nude swimming lessons!

I knew when I met headmaster Maltesermom it was love at first strike with the giant paddle y'all

»UK NewsTeacher with MBE 'streaked naked across field on school trip'
A teacher who was presented with an MBE for his work organising Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes has been found guilty of misconduct after streaking naked with pupils across a field on a school trip.

David Bradley outside the General Teaching Council hearing in Coventry Photo: NewsteamBy Telegraph reporters
10:11AM GMT 17 Jan 2013
David Bradley, 55, also undressed in a shower area where children, aged 12 and 13, were naked and on another occasion he hugged a female pupil.

He also presided over a bizarre 'peeing' competition between students from North Cestrian Grammar School, Altrincham, Cheshire, on the camping trip between November 4 and 6, 2011.

The incidents took place when he was in charge of 11 pupils who were staying at the Solwaybank centre in Dumfries and Galloway, in Scotland.

Bradley was awarded an MBE in 2008 for services to young people after running Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes for 30 years.

On Thursday married Bradley, from Hale Barns, Greater Manchester, was found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct at a Teaching Agency disciplinary hearing in Coventry.

The panel found it was inappropriate for him to streak naked across a field in full view of students.

He admitted he had undressed in front of male students while they showered and sat a male pupil on his knee, but this was ruled not sufficient to amount to misconduct.

Bradley also admitted hugging a female pupil but he was cleared of misconduct when he claimed he held her because he feared she was suffering from hypothermia.

He also admitted asking two boys if they were having a "peeing competition" before saying "ready steady go" but this was also ruled not inappropriate behaviour.

An allegation that he suggested giving a pupil a forfeit by putting their bare bottom on the cold grass was found unproven.

Ruling the streaking did amount to misconduct, panel chairman John Pemberton told him: "Teachers have a responsibility to uphold public trust in the profession and to maintain high standards of behaviour within and outside school.

"On this occasion you failed to maintain the appropriate boundaries and appropriate delineation of behaviour that should exist between pupils and teachers.

"We are satisfied that your actions do amount to unprofessional conduct which may bring the profession into disrepute."

During the one-day hearing, Bradley claimed he had been goaded into streaking by several male students while the group camped in a barn.

He told the panel: "The lads had already streaked for a joke and they were saying 'come on sir, you have a go'.

"At that point, for whatever reason I got up, ran down the garden and ran back in.

"Even when I did it I thought 'what am I doing?'

"At the time and also shortly afterwards I realised it was inappropriate.

"I thought 'what the hell are you doing? I've not done this before why am I doing it now?"

Bradley, who taught English for 37 years, also admitted he was "out of date" and said he was "aghast" that traditional teaching methods were now considered "frightening."

He said: "The thing that comes out of this is how out of date I am.

"What is viewed as normal today seems to have gone to a frightening situation where an adult can't be near to a child without being accused of something.

"I'm aghast by it. It almost makes me cross in one sense that these things are being seen as so terribly wrong."

Speaking about the incident where he hugged a female pupil and sat a male pupil on his knee, Bradley said he had been attempting to share body heat and keep them warm.

He said: "They are both regarded as totally standard things to do.

"I believe what I did there was what a caring teacher, what a caring parent, what a caring human being would do.

"To leave a child suffering is just heartless."

John Easton, representing Bradley, said his client was guilty of "a serious error of judgement."

He said: "After 37 years in teaching Mr Bradley made a very serious error of judgement after working a 16 hour day and suffering from fatigue."

After receiving his MBE from the Queen at Buckingham Palace, he said: "Taking children out into the wilds and encouraging them to push themselves, overcome their self-doubts and play silly games is hardly rocket science.

"In fact, the 50 to 70 days a year I'm away from home are normally just an excuse to have fun and enjoy the animal vitality the young exude."

The panel will decide next month whether Bradley will be struck off the teaching register

Pedo Bob, why don't you post under your own name? What are you afraid of? And why resurrect these old abandoned threads to do it? Start one of you own and take credit for it. Meanwhile, the police who are reading these posts know from your location and ISP that these perverted postings originate from your computer in real time. Their content shall only work against you. But as a self-outed fool, you'll keep on keeping on. I say, knowing how this can likely end for you the more you post these child-abuse fantasies, Carry on, mon cher petit pederaste. Lol.

It is time we named and shamed these primary schools that practice mysandry contact.

Another example is Marshfield Primary school in Cardiff but there are no showers so the school cant plead hygiene grounds and the girls get the option of leotards, t-shirts and thick polo shirts so they cant use the boys tops will get stuck in the gym equipment fallacy.

No child will be allowed to participate in gymnastics and games unless appropriate clothing and footwear is worn. Clothing for educational gymnastics and dance:
• Girls: T shirt / school polo shirt and shorts or leotard.
• Boys: shorts.
All work in the hall will be carried out in bare feet except where parents request otherwise, perhaps because of a foot infection. Should this be the case, trainers or plimsolls should be worn.

Lol. Is that so? Okay, I'm responsible for outing you as a sick, developmentally arrested, emotionally challenged, sexually dysfunctional, young-boy lusting, seminally disgusting, potty-mouthed, lying, hypocritical, self-loathing homosexual child-porn distributing sexual predator. I accept and acknowledge full responsibility for exposing you to readers as completely as the explicit, heartbreaking, exploitative, gratuitous nudity of the hundreds of young boys in those horrible photos you have posted here on Topix. You have GOT to go. If I were British, I'd consider tracking you down and arranging, at any price, for "an unfortunate accident" that would leave you physically emasculated.

So get stuffed.

And why don't you post under your real name, instead of that moronic MaltaMon?

And give up on that 'the police are tracking you/reading these posts' nonsense. You know that's not true.

If they were, I would have been arrested long ago.
I haven't, so they aren't.

I was only a little girl when my mother, who was a swim
instructor (at one point) at a YMCA. She would ocassionally take my
older sister and me along when she couldn't get a babysitter. I
guess I was just too young to be affected much by the nudity of the
little boys she taught, but I think that my sister was overwhelmed
by it.
Barbara's second post:

In reference to the emails I've received,
I finally got up the courage to call my older sister and ask her about her memories of those days.
She is 6 years older than I,
and said that I was about
4 and she about 10 when Mom started ocassionally taking us with her.
She obviously hadn't forgotten it, and remembers alot more than I do.

My sister said that besides the little boys that Mom taught,
there were sometimes boys her age and even through their teens present and naked.
I guess they were just used to coming and going from the pool area in the nude.
She told me that she remembers one time when a much older boy walked in sprouting pubic hair.
He was headed to the other end of the pool.
At some point he noticed us 3 females and sort of froze staring at us wide-eyed.
She got her first look at adult-like male genitals that day.
She said that he eventually covered himself and started running back to the locker area.
Mom yelled at him to slow down and he had to walk quickly the rest of the way.
She said she still vividly remembers his penis,
pubic bush and his wiggling fanny as he retreated!
My sister is pretty conservative,
so I never thought she would tell me all of this.

She also said that there were a few other incidents with groups of older boys.
I'll save them for some later post.

There was only one male chaperone at the camp, it was for 5 weekdays and 4 nights, apparently no fathers were available because none volunteered. We had 8 mothers and 2 female teachers and one male teacher for 87 students. So two cabins of boys had female chaperones, and nobody said anything about it. We switched around after the third night and I ended up in a girls cabin for one night. All of the cabins were separate from each other and the students were not allowed to enter the other cabins, only the one they were assigned to. The other moms and I had free roam of all the cabins including supervising the shower areas. Out of courtesy to the boys, we did not enter the showers while the boys were in there, but they did often change in front of us in the bunk area and thought nothing of walking from the bunks down the hall to the showers with nothing on, even with females present. I was not one bit suprised at the totally casual attitude toward nudity of the boys, and only a little suprised at the girls. When I was that age we girls were a bit more modest, but starting in junior high we all had to shower together every day after gym class, and the girls became very casual about nudity. The opinion of the other moms and two female teachers was that the girls attending this school camp spent a lot more time looking at each other and comparing while undressed than the boys did, and took much longer to dress after showering than the boys did. This was my first experience as a chaperone so I have no idea what might happen at other camps in other parts of the world. But I can tell you that when I was in junior high and high school, there was a lot of nudity at sleepovers with other girls, and we often wore nothing or only panties to watch videos, sit and talk, or sleep in.

I grew up in Illinois, Rockford, where boys were required to swim nude in swim class the years I was there, 1962-1967.
I hated, despised, loathed and detested it. The girls,of course, little flowers that they were, were allowed suits in their classes. Which fact made me absolutely seethe with rage.
It was as you've heard in most other accounts; boys only, nude, male teachers in suits. That also annoyed me--if I were to be thus humiliated, why not him? No, I didn't protest. What was the point? In those days, no one listened. Especially not to a boy who might feel humiliated at his public nudity. We were supposed to suck it up and get on with it and above all, shut up. It was the American educational system at its best, producing bovine little worker/consumer units. And nice docile cannon fodder for LBJ's dreams of a commie free Asia.
I don't really know which effect it had on behavior. There are those who claim the whole thing was intended as disciplinary tool, to keep other wise boisterous boys in line. It's hard to engage in horse play while blushing from head to foot. And in general, I think there was less bullying and rough housing in swimming than in gym.
I never saw any females around, although the knowledge that they were just on the other side of the (I hoped) locked door marked "Girls Locker Room" was enough to scare the snot out of me. I only remember one woman, the school nurse, casually sauntering into a pool full of naked boys--as though it never occurred to her we might be the slightest bit embarrassed--to inspect our feet. Still I don't doubt the stories of female coaches and spectators. For whatever reason, we, our humiliation and embarrassment, were presumed not to matter; and girls, for what ever reason, did. I knew a woman in college (1973) who claimed she had spent her summer vacation as a lifeguard in a YMCA (I think it was in Indianapolis, but no sure) where the boys and men swam nude. We thought she was exaggerating,but she claimed they were bare ass buck nekkid. It wasn't till years later, when I started reading posts like these, that I realized she was telling the truth.
As for a reason. We weren't given one. It was the tenor of the times; you didn't ask because they wouldn't tell anyway. Our parents were the World War II generation, and they tried to instill in us a deference to authority. As the youth movement of the sixties proved, it didn't work. The only explanations I've ever heard for this have more holes than a hunk of swiss cheese. One of your posters here gave the most lucid explanation--it began when only boys and men swam, and the filters could get clogged, so they swam sans suits. But why, in the 50s-70s did it persist? Probably for the most obvious reason--no one though to change it.
My experience may not have been typical, though I have been surprised to find how many others disliked it and found it humiliating. I know this--my last nude swim class was 42 years ago, and I'm still mad about it.
It turned me into a non swimmer.
