Perhaps it is time to introuce alcohol wipes in all schools to prevent the spread of MRSA and to stop Educational nudity and male toplesssness!

Hit the showers!” These words have struck terror in gym class students for generations. But the school shower marks more than an opportunity to towel-whip the undersized or mock the hairless or hirsute: it is a right of passage for adolescents across the United States. Except, it seems, in Florida.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that shower stalls are staying dry in the state’s public schools because students are too embarrassed to undress in front of their peers and school staff are too afraid of lawsuits if they try to force public bathing.

(See pictures of summer school programs.)

To which Newsfeed says:“Euwww! Gross!”

Some experts agree. Cheryl Richardson, a program manager with the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, told the newspaper that the lack of post-exercise showers can lead to the spread of infectious diseases such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, which can be deadly.

But a solution may be at hand. At one Fort Lauderdale, Fla. high school, the athletic director has begun handing out disinfectant wipes for student athletes. And a Maryland company called (we kid you not) My Kids Stink started selling a product in May to meet the needs of students, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

(See more on what makes schools successful.)

The paper quotes Harvey Metro, an accountant and father of three boys, who came up with the idea for the large QwikShower Wipes because his kids — all athletes — did not shower at school.“It was just kind of gross,” said Metro.“I don’t know how they walked around school like that.”

Well said, Metro, well said. NewsFeed will hold its nose next time it passes a high school.

Charterhouse: 16 year-old pupil held over 'filming pupils in showers'
A student at one of Britain's most high-profile public schools, Charterhouse, has been arrested over alleged child pornography offences, it has emerged.

8:30AM BST 26 Mar 2012

The 16 year-old student, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was interviewed by detectives last Thursday.

Reports claimed he took "indecent images" of other students in the showers of the 400 year-old school.

The schoolboy is then said to have allegedly stored the images on his computer.

Police were alerted after members of the school staff learned of the suspected prank, the Daily Mail reported.

The pupil was questioned for several hours on suspicion of making indecent images of a child before being released on bail. No charges have yet been filed.

DJ, you're not a stable adult. Either you were traumatized as a child while taking a shower in a school lockerroom and still have flashbacks, were fired as a teacher because you were caught fondling an underaged male student, or you are a potential (if not yet actual) child sexual predator. Your obsesssion with the nudity of boys is well beyond reason. And bare-chested boys? Nude? You're in another world. Your public outrage against it is a wink to your fellow fetishists. They understand that you're going to keep on posting stories, most of them entirely fictional, to which they can masturbate. You're brand of journalism is nothing new. But it has its origins in mendacity--not fact. Why not admit that you are a troubled adult?

Fury as school girls are forced to lift up their tops by teachers to prove they hadn't hidden mobile phones in their brasBy Sara Malm
PUBLISHED: 13:32, 27 May 2012 | UPDATED: 13:51, 27 May 2012

Schoolgirls were ordered to lift up their tops by teachers to prove they were not carrying mobile phones in their bras.
The school insisted they were merely trying to enforce their no phones rule after a scanner revealed someone was carrying one.
But parents of pupils at Tomlinscote School, Frimley, Surrey, have reacted with fury.

Bra search: Teachers at Tomlinscote School, Surrey, ordered schoolgirls to lift up their tops to check they weren't hiding away mobile phones
One father said his daughter felt 'embarrassed and violated' by the ordeal, the Sunday Express reported.
To enforce the no-phones rule teachers have been using a ‘wand’ metal detector to scan their students.
However, it is thought that the wires in one of the girls' bras had set it off.

One unnamed father said that he did ‘fully support’ the phone-ban but that the strip search was a step too far.
‘My daughter felt embarrassed and violated for having to expose herself in front of other girls and teachers.’
The school, which coincidentally is in Education Secretary Michael Gove’s constituency, has apologised to the students and their parents.
In a letter of apology sent out to parents head teacher Zoe Johnson-Walker called it a ‘screening’ rather than ‘search’ and stressed that precautions, such as no physical contact and ensuring no male staff was involved, had been taken ‘with the aim of being considerate of the individual.’
The search was carried out after it had been reported that girls were smuggling in phones in their bras but it seems the alarm was most likely triggered by the metal wiring in the young girls' bras and not smuggled mobile phones.

The phones are actually a red herring in all this. The law says students may not be asked to remove clothing that reveals their underwear. The law is there to protect both teachers and students alike. The fact the school were not aware of this, and didn't even stop to think it might be inappropriate is what worries me.

i am a student here and the girls were searched in the changing rooms by two female members of staff who did not touch them but just scan them with their eyes. all the girls did was lift up their tops but not their bras so the teachers did not see their 'top bits'. you do that anyway to get changed. yes, we do have showers but we do not use them as the kids are embarrased to get naked in front of other people. i do think this was a bit over the top, i personally wouldn't like to be looked at to see if I was hiding things in my bra. Basically this has been blown out of proportion, there was no 'strip search' or anything like that.

My daugher was involved in all this and was actually frisked search, so Mrs Johnson Walkers email infuriated me, not touched indeed. I am still awaiting a call back, five days later . My daughter wasn't asked if it was ok. She has also had her bag searched by a male member of staff, she has also been searched 10-15 times in the past year, I have now told her to refuse to be searched and to tell them to call me.

when I was this age back in the 80's we had to have a communal shower naked after PE with the teacher watching over us, at the time this was considered acceptable! how times must have changed, these same girls probably go swimming in public etc and so I can't see what the big deal is.- janedoe, crewe, 28/5 Did you go to the school in Buchan Grove? I had to do that there in the 1960s and have never forgotten the trauma!

No Maltamon lets cut the communal shower. Save the school waterbill and make PE more user friendly for the pupils rather than the forced Sandusky style nudity

Hey,DJW, my female alter-ego is giving you a run for your money on Bob's naked-swimming thread. She's going to be the next star of these nude-boy chats. She has better material, I think. And I believe, totally, that she's for real and that every word she prints here is absolutely the truth. She's an exciting broad, DJ. Very sexy woman-of-a-certain-age. Must have been quite the stunner in her earlier years. And boy, did she ever love boys.

POSING FOR POSTURE
By Curtis R. Chong,
As an American soldier in World War II Irving W. Knight '48 had bigger worries than modesty about his naked body.

So when he returned from the war and enrolled in Harvard College in 1946, Knight wasn't embarrassed when Harvard officials asked him to pose for nude photos.

"Posture photos," as they were then called, were taken of every incoming student at many prestigious colleges in the first half of the 20th century, as a part of the registration process.

George L. Hersey '51, now a professor of art history at Yale, says, "I was told to show up at the swimming pool, I took my swim test and posed. We were expected to show up and do this."

Students acquiesced in the days of single-sex colleges because nudity was a normal part of the college experience, Knight says.

"We never wore bathing suits in the swimming pools, it was considered more hygienic that way," he says. "The House [swimming] races were in the nude."

And so posture photos were snapped and collected--and saved for later research which was intended to link physique to temperament.

This practice--led nationwide by a Harvard researcher--remained widespread through the 1950s and 60s.

Posture photos were so common, in fact, that nude images of luminaries like Yale alum George Bush and Wellesley alums Hillary Rodham Clinton and Diane Sawyer may still exist in dusty archives somewhere, a revelation that made the cover of the Sunday New York Times Magazine more than 30 years later.

Origins of the Posture Photo

From 1880 to 1940, Harvard's Physical Education Department took nude posture photos of all entering students, says retired anthropology professor William W. Howells '30.

Professor E.A. Hooton of the Anthropology Department and William H. Sheldon, another Harvard researcher, took over the posture photo program in 1940, transforming it into a somatotyping campaign, Hersey says.

Students photographed were assigned a somatotype to describe their body shape. Thin individuals were classified as "Ectomorphs," the obese were labeled "Endomorphs," and those with muscular builds were "Mesomorphs."

"Sheldon undertook a huge program, backed by Ivy League Universities, in order to photograph the elite and show that their physiques and temperaments were those of leaders and superior people," says Hersey, who is researching a book on this subject.

The somatotyping campaign expanded beyond the Ivy League--to include some 46,000 individuals photographed at military and medical institutions.

'Unique Measurements'

Approximately 18,000 nude photographs of Harvard undergraduates were stored in Widener Library at least through the summer of 1963.

Frederica E. Sigel says that she and three other teenage women were hired by the School of Public Health to sort the photos.

The duties of the job included linking body measurements to cause of death, Sigel says.

"We had everybody's every measurement and we sorted them by various categories, including cause of death, to be put on punch cards," Sigil says.

"The duties of the job weren't as remarkable as what we were looking at," she says. "We had all these photos of the Herters, the Salton-stalls, and I think there were some Roosevelts."

Sigel says that although the novelty of the job wore off after the first week, a "unique measurement" would appear every now and then.

"We would pass the photo around," Sigel said. "We were of an age where we didn't have access to 18,000 naked men, this was an exciting job for and adolescent to have," she says. "It put a whole different spin on dating."

Today, most identifiable photos are reported to have been destroyed.

Maltamon has the 666th post surely the sign of the devil. Lets ensure no other person has to endure "naked initiations" at educational institution whether that be the communal shower or Dartmouth college style swim tests or Yale University Posture photographs. No more GITMO nakedness.
