A group of British women decided to “self-identify” as men, to infiltrate a men-only swimming session. The pair entered the pool topless as a protest after officials allowed men claiming to be transgender women, to enter the women’s pool.
The two female protesters launched their protest on March 16 at a South London pool, by entering the men-only swimming session while wearing only a swim cap and swim trunks, the Daily Mail reported.
The two women, 30-year-old Amy Desir, and her friend who only went by the name Hannah, told officials they “identify as men” to gain access to the pool. The women entered through the men’s changing room and joined 20 men during the men-only swimming session.
“We are doing it to highlight the ridiculous and dangerous move towards self-identification,” Desir told the media. “We are clearly not men, but by saying we are, we were allowed to join in men-only activities.”
