Then, your gym teacher tells you to strip naked and walk onto the pool deck with your nude male classmates. Yes, those same classmates you sit next to in math. But for more than 50 years even until , by some accounts , this was standard policy at public high schools in Chicago and across the country. Michael and several other listeners have sent questions to Curious City asking for more information about the school policy. Specifically, Michael asked: Why did Chicago boys swim naked in high school? How did that start and why did it stop? And was it unique to Chicago?
Also lets change the gender representation in government and in big business also, in parity with the past!
No way, as a small person you would have been extremely valuable in service during war time. Smaller people can escape better, are harder to detect, make better sniper rifle shooters, etc. In hand to hand combat, with proper training, smaller people can evade and redirect think Akido incoming assaults, and are harder to shoot due just to their small size.
And as a woman especially during WW2 the enemy would be less likely to guess you worked for the other side Because a woman? During war!? No way! This archaic gender bullshit is affecting our ability to defend our own country and it has got to stop. Empowering and beautiful. Where are the strong American women repairing our sewers, welding underwater pipes and shoveling manure? What a beautiful tradition.
I wish it was never changed or capitalized on. The world had such unique and amazing features before the industrial age took full hold. Sponge diving, in some islands of Greece, was the only way to earn your living in the past, but it was men that were diving.
A 15 kilograms stone was taking the divers down to the bottom quickly. They often went down to about 30 metres ft for up to 5 minutes. Some of them more than years ago discovered the Antikythera Mechanism, the oldest analog computer. A great scientific account of what these remarkable women can do. A little note though: In japan female divers were non existent as men were the only ones allowed to do that until the 19th century. At that time the taxation system made women possible divers but also made their activities tax free which had the effect of pushing a lot of poor female into the job.
Remember, It was NOT a good or well regarded job and the romanticism about it is only in retrospect.
A few years ago I found a unique book by Horace Bristol on his photography of Japan, from Inside, there are 14 booklets of his photos and observations. One of the booklets talks about the Ama in a different location, and pearl cultivation in general. The photography is really amazing and provides a record of a way of life that is tending to become more rare. You can find out more about it here. I have never heard of this!
How amazing! I would love to visit there some day and possibly try myself.

So the APHA dropped the nude swimming recommendation in CPS officials declined to comment, but one of my old Lane Tech teachers, John Lewis, says coaches like him believed the rule was about encouraging boys to get cleaner. Another consideration was money.
CPS would have had to fork over even more money to buy suits for all its male freshmen. But even if these arguments make some sense, there is still the question of why none of them applied to girls. Coach Lewis offers a common argument from the time: that girls are just more modest than boys. On top of that, Lane Tech graduate Robin Washington says at his school, there was a routine body inspection by upperclassmen.
Almost all of the men I talked to say young people have a hard time believing this ever happened. At Kennedy High School on the South Side, Connors says boys protested by breaking glass bottles and throwing them in the pool.
They were committing misdemeanors just to avoid having to take all their clothes off in front of everybody. Still, the policy was met with range of reactions because not everyone felt the same way about modesty and personal privacy.
My own great uncle, Michael Magan, who graduated from Lane Tech insays swimming nude was not a problem for him.
He says that while most people who spoke to him had problems with swimming naked, many men said they were OK with it. In some towns like Duluth, Minnesota, entire school districts dropped the rule altogether. But in CPS, the end of nude swimming was harder to track. Still, Title IX enforcement came too late for guys like Connors. He says the experience and the bullying have followed him into adulthood.
