Wow that swimsuit is very conservative - not at all provocative. Hopefully the club will feel a backlash for this discrimination (assuming his story is accurate and they didn't kick him out for some other unspecified bad behavior). He may have a case for a civil suit.

Thanks for including the link, which made it easy to read and watch the story. He MAY have violated their policy (which seems inconsistent), but the company handled it ALL wrong! He actually looks good in that suit, and it's not too revealing. They (the hotel or pool) would have done far better to have one person quietly speak to him about this situation, than embarrass him like they did. Plus, a VEGAS hotel pool that finds racing "Speedo" style suits too revealing? What are they, Amish? I hope another nearby hotel offers him and his partner a free night/stay at a Speedo friendly pool. Well folks, write off the Las Vegas Wynn's Encore Beach pool for your next thong adventure.

I read the Yahoo article this morning. At that time, there were over 7,000 comments. I scrolled through several hundred comments and almost unanimously the commenters condemned the man for wearing a Speedo-type suit. Most commenters said men shouldn’t wear Speedos. Very disappointing response. Maybe we’re not making any progress.

Seems to me the guy is simply breaking the resorts policy of no speedo. Him arguing that it is not a speedo as in the brand is just stupid. Of course, the resorts policy is stupid to begin with.

If equality is really a thing, then management either has to decide to (1) permit everyone to wear swim briefs (including men's "speedos", women's bikinis, etc. or (2) force everyone, male and female, to swim and sunbathe in knee-length shorts. Since it's a business and not a religious establishment, they won't exercise option 2. Hopefully, the threat of lawsuits, bad PR, etc. will force them to utilize the first option. If not, the US will very likely be the only country in the world where a women can swim in a bikini while a man is forced to swim in knee-length shorts.

I just checked their policy on their website. Although they may have changed it since this incident, the policy is super vague. I don’t think he can claim discrimination based on sexual orientation. However, may be something based on gender discrimination. After all, would a female be banned for wearing a suit with similar coverage? Admittedly I didn’t see a pic of the suit, but I doubt he was wearing a sew through g-string lol. Never been to Wynn but Vegas in general is supposed to be thong friendly. I’m sure many other hotels will be glad to take their money. Weird, considering Wynn has not been doing super well lately from what I understand.

Though all this anti "speedo" bias in the US may be rooted in homophobia, the overarching issue at play is gender equality. The thing that got the victim kicked out was the fact that he was a man who dared to go against fashion trends by wearing swim briefs, not that he was gay. As one can see from the many comments, far too many men are bowing to mob rule on this issue and not standing for their own right to choose.

They had pictures up initially. It was a smallish yellow swim brief -- probably not the best quality, but it wasn't see through and didn't expose anything. Plenty of women swim and walk around in far less without being harassed for it.

For those who were wondering, yes, Encore has changed their rules. It used to say (relevant stuff only): "Proper Attire Required: Dress to impress, no baggy clothing, jeans, or basketball shorts. Pool attire is required to enter the venue. Proper swim attire includes: • Swimming suits." At the bottom of the page it also said: "Important: All entry is based on management's discretion. Any person who refuses to comply with any regulation governing public bathing or swimming facility or any rule of that facility must be excluded from the premises." They have now added the following line after the "enter the venue" line: "No risqué or indecent swimwear is permitted; management reserves all rights to determine appropriate attire." Of course, who knows what "risqué or indecent swimwear" means, and the suit I saw certainly was not "risqué or indecent". And as somebody else pointed out, it was quite normal if worn on a woman. Speaking of which, they also had a line saying: "European sunbathing is prohibited." I'm guessing what they meant by that was "no topless".

It appears that the management has different rules for everyone. Hard to say, there’s also the possibility that may be they didn’t like the guy for some reason and would’ve left another guy alone. But either way, good for him for standing up.

From reading comments, there was some indication that it was a thong style speedo.

Be careful making a judgement on the type of suit based on the comments of others posted on Yahoo. I watched the video and saw photos of the man and the suit. To me it looked like a pretty standard brief. I would have to agree the women in the pool will wear much less and not have a problem. There is a double standard in this country when it comes to skin exposure. Whether or not it was a homophobic reaction of not, it is a written policy that is intentionally vague to allow any employee to expel someone because they don’t like what a person is wearing. It is sad that so many of the comments were about the need to be covered. If it was a woman who was treated the same I suspect there would be an out pouring of body shaming comments condemning the policy or the hotel. To me it is just sad that everyone can not just accept without judgement.

I've posted before about this at my gym when they told me I had to wear "gender appropriate" swimwear. Which meant no string or small side bikinis. The women are allowed to wear cheeky bikinis or thongs. It happens all the time. Years ago I had on a thong at the Santa Cruz beach and the cops asked to see my ID. A woman 20 feet away had less coverage and wasn't bothered. It is what it is. This country was founded by Puritans and it hasn't changed that much.

Funny that his sexual preference is front and Center. What’s that got to do with his swimwear. Supppose if he were black or Muslim it would added to the headline. Maybe Jewish seeing if his penis showed circumcision. What all this comes down to is having attractive people visit the hotel pool. Which is like a magnet to bring in more people spending money. They discriminate in night clubs doorman bringing in front of the line sexy woman while leaving others stand outside inline for entire evening. If you have patience they may let’s you in shortly before they close. Just hate stories like this or treatment of males in swim briefs. Privately owned venues can demand certain dress codes be a blazer or tie for dinner etc.. There is a taught generation that believe men can only wear x Y or Z while woman traditionally can wear skimpier swimwear without reprimand. Hopefully the younger generation can be more understanding while older can retire from decision making. Yet feel old rules will stay in place venues like that. Just shows one more example on how minimal swimwear is frowned upon when any type of male wears it. When I wear a thong to my gym pool i’m Recognized even discussed by groups of people. They find it unusual assuming I’m wearing stripper adult clothing inappropiate for pool venue, this complaints issued. Know matter how you are perceived wearing minimal swimwear from terrible to incredible spectrum often having issues in regards to males. Be it size of your bulge or body competition everyone has issues from jealousy to hatred. So sad to feel confident wearing minimal swimwear in public always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Anxiety for sure, not worth the effort to try. Just visit c/o beach and relax as I do never worrying about what I wear. After this article I may try to visit a public pool after work in my thong see what happens, expecting the worst.

I'm glad this story was posted here. The guy had less than 1% support from commenters on Yahoo!, while the White Power rally defenders had about 10% support. Insane. Even gay men were ripping this man's choice of swimwear to shreds, and it was a full coverage, non see-through yellow bikini. Footage of his removal indicates he was being belligerent to security, and falsely accusing them of only being asked to leave because of his sexual preference. I take offense to that, because in his mind only a gay man would wear a swim bikini to a pool. I'm convinced if he were either A. a muscular Adonis, or B. really overweight and jolly, this would never had happened. He was uber-hairy, and wiry, so someone there must have complained to somebody in charge about him. There are limited places and days of the week for gay men to go to Las Vegas pools and be left alone, but they do exist. Luxor on Sundays, and occasionally the Flamingo. Frankly, with topless pools more accepted as time marches on, it's ridiculous to me that any pool at a 21 & up venue has an attire policy of any kind. Believe me, if the rule was swim attire optional but no sex allowed, most wouldn't bat an eye.

I'm not gay but that shouldn't matter. I wore a SwirlFashion thong which is very minimal to the Luxor pool this summer and I didn't have a problem. Maybe it was because I paid the $100 for the umbrella at the "premium pool" and if you're willing to shell out $100 for the afternoon they don't have a problem with it.

A quick Google image search for "Encore Beach Club" and the word "Thong" shows hundreds of pictures of women in thong swimsuits. So, yes, I think he was asked to leave because the sexist 'bro' culture on often sees at these events, with guys in board shorts and girls in thongs. I see similar disproving looks when I ware a thong or really short shorts at some of the DJ pool party dance venues that tend to attract young men with a combination of pretty women and rap music. Lucky I hang with a supportive crowed. Call them out on it when they promote the event by inviting pretty young women in thongs, often paying for their attendance, and / or having them dress in thongs or sexy outfits to promote some brand of alcohol, but then have a 'bro' culture homophobic attitude to a fit guy rocking a thong.
