Schools throw in the towel on getting kids to shower
Days of dreaded gym showers leave unpleasant memories
Ads by Pulse 360 AdChoices
Some things about physical education class never change: calisthenics, running laps and fitness testing.

One dreaded ritual — the group shower — has slowly gone down the drain over the years, much to the relief of many parents.
“I graduated in 1990 when showers were required after PE class. It was just part of the culture back then,” said Cheryl Richardson, former Hortonville High School basketball coach and senior director of programs for the National Association for Sport and Physical Education.“There was a lot of parental pressure put on the schools. Everyone wants their child to have positive experiences in their lives and showering in PE class in front of your friends isn’t one of them.”
Danni’l Fleischfresser of Fond du Lac said she felt violated when taking group showers in elementary school.
“My parents didn’t like what was taking place and I was excused from showers for the remainder of elementary school,” Fleischfresser said.
When Doug Mock started teaching in the Oakfield School District 26 years ago, mandatory showers were included on his course syllabus. Those bypassing the shower stall risked a deduction to their grade.
“It just became a battle I wasn’t willing to fight,” Mock said.“If a kid really feels uncomfortable, who am I to say you need a shower? One of the benefits of not having showers is that we get to spend more time in class doing activities.”
While shower facilities are available to students, Mock said most students today change into their street clothes after gym class or sports practice without showering.
“Some kids who hit the fitness center before school will take a shower before starting first hour, but most just wipe down with towels,” Mock said.
Former Fond du Lac School District P.E. teacher Diana Beck said mandatory showers were phased out over time.
“It was thought that (showering) was good for hygiene, but it never amounted to more than a quick rinse (for students),” Beck said.“Showers were no longer required when co-ed gym class was implemented in 1977.”
Many student locker rooms at the elementary schools now serve as storage rooms after showering was eliminated following the grade realignment in 2003, said Marian Sheridan, health and safety coordinator for the Fond du Lac School District.
There are no state level mandates governing showers in Wisconsin, said Department of Public Instruction spokesman Patrick Gasper.
“Showering policies are decided upon by each individual school district,” Gasper said.
In lieu of a cleansing shower following gym class, Richardson said many students choose to freshen up with an array of deodorants, body sprays and lotions.
“Some days it smelled like a fruit salad in the girls’ locker room,” Richardson said with a laugh.

But having photos of naked boys showering would have never been tolerated.

DJW posted a web site last December which featured hundreds of photos of young boys either entirely nude or posed erotically in skimpy underwear briefs. As a shameless child pornographer, D-J-W has no right to speak out about any of these matters without first admitting his own role in the abuse he criticizes, without first admitting his own hypocrisy.

And the reason MaltaMolester saw it was because he trolls the net looking for photos of young boys. Seek and ye shall find.

No, Pedo Baby. The reason I saw it was that like ZuikiPiss, DJ posted the porn site erroneously as a site that would support his phony-baloney campaign on these threads against nudity. Like many others, I hit the link only to discover that it was full of child porn. You remember of course, bit, as always, you find it more convenient, and perhaps more fun, to just make shit up.

At least Bob is intelligent enough to know that others would find out he is a paedophile if he posted child porn pretending it was of proof that boys swam naked.

Why should he bother to post any? His hard drives are packed with child pornography. He's not interested in sharing it. Besides, ZuikiKiddiePorn is quite eager to post elements of his stash of child pornography.

Poor Molly thinks that he is going to project his perversions on others. His obsession with nude boys and the fact that he molested his own claimed son speaks for itself. Who knows how many boys he molested in his perverted life under the excuse that they were gay boys.

I want you to stop the repeated topless swimming of boys in uk schools maltamon. Why wont uk schools let boys do swimming in board shorts but insist they swim in speedos or short shorts. Girls are allowed to cover their upper torso's why not males. It isn't just Large Language it is Bad Languages to deny males their privacy rights

I'm not British,,DJ. More evidence that you've got more than a few screws that need tightening. But you are a child pornographer who has posted on Topix access to many hundreds of photographs of young boys who are entirely nude. Alongside those on your web site are hundreds more of even younger children, all boys again, who clearly are years from puberty. Those kids,are worse than nude: they are posed erotically--legs or buttocks spread for the camera and the sick F**k behind it. YOU, you equally sick, demented, depraved bastard, posted a link to all of that for the Topix audience. Don't dare presume to take the high road of sanctimony: your phony-baloney crusade here will not and cannot absolve you of your enthusiastic participation in the sexual exploitation and abuse of children. You are a criminal, a child sexual predator, a very sick and dangerous individual who belong in a psychiatric hospital within your nation's prison system. You and your fraudulent crusade for children are NOT welcome here.

What is the matter with you Maltamom why cant you hold your own Boston Tea part for us British?

Why wont primary schools in the Uk give boys the choice of wearing t shirts, polo shirt or leotard like girls but force them to wear just shorts for gym and dance it is as bad as the nude swimming travesty in the us.

The outdoor pe kit is gender neutral but the indoor kit is blatantly sexist.

Dont believe me:

Games and PE
Games and PE are compulsory for all children, except those permanently excluded on health grounds. These children must have a note form their GP to this effect. Those suffering from minor ailments will only be excused if supported by a brief note from the parents. Suitable clothing for PE is essential.

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.

Get lost, ZuikiBareBoyBums. The charade is over. You should have kept DJ in character, but you couldn't resist striking back ZuikiPusy-like. Playing more than one character on a chat line isn't original, either. Ask Bob. Or Katie. Or Peggy. I knew you wouldn't be able to hold it together in the face of all that angry anti-child-porn stuff (which was sincere, by the way)
