UK Judge Rules Calling A Man Bald Is Sexual Harassment, Offenders To Be Mauled (Probably) By She-Bears

The United Kingdom is finally getting to the real problems in the world.

A judge in the UK has ruled that calling a man bald is, in fact, a form of sexual harassment.

Three members of the tribunal who decided on the ruling, and alluded to their own experience of hair loss, said that baldness was more prevalent in men than women. Therefore, they argued that the use of the word "bald" as an insult related to a "protected characteristic of sex."

The tribunal compared calling a man bald to commenting on the size of woman's breasts, based on a 1995 case.

Baldness is now a "protected sex characteristic" according to this ruling.

Finally, the guys can start suing for sexual harassment and even things out.

As for the comparison... I don't see it. But I will humbly accept the conclusion of the court.

The ruling, published Wednesday, was made on a case where the insult was alleged to have been used against Tony Finn, while he worked as an electrician for the British Bung Manufacturing Company.

Finn had worked at the company, which manufactures wooden cask closures for the brewing industry, in Yorkshire in the northeast of England, for nearly 24 years. He was fired last year and the circumstances around his dismissal were also part of the case.

Finn claimed that he was called a "bald c---" and was also threatened by his shift supervisor, Jamie King, in a dispute in July 2019.

The tribunal determined that using this insult was a "violation against the claimant's [Finn] dignity, it created an intimidating ... environment for him, it was done for that purpose, and it related to the claimant's sex."

So, basically, mentioning a man's bald head is sexual harassment because baldness is usually a male-specific trait. I hope the court enforces Elisha's famous proclamation from the Bible where he called down two bears to maul a group of young people who were mocking him!

Honestly, I'm not shocked that a UK judge would make this kind of ruling. I mean, have you seen a British judge before?

I'm just saying that this group may be sensitive to mentioning anything related to hair.

The tribunal members also suggested that it was not the use of profanities that was the issue, with Finn also having being found to use such language in the workplace: "Although, as we find, industrial language was commonplace on this West Yorkshire factory floor, in our judgment Mr King crossed the line by making remarks personal to the claimant about his appearance."

Finn is set to receive compensation on the tribunal's ruling, though the amount had not yet been determined.

In the UK, if you make fun of someone for being bald you can be held guilty of harassment.

The punishment is probably going to be a fine, although there is definitely a historic precedent for the punishment to be death by she-bear.
