Went paddle boarding this morning with our young daugther on the board as well. I was wearing one of these newer Speedo Endurance briefs and our daughter was wearing a light colored bikini and life jacket. One of my wife's co-workers, who probably didn't know who I was snapped a cruddy, from behind photo and posted it on facebook. Turns out my wife found it before I even got home and was a bit upset about, simultaneouly worrying that whe woman and her friends were making fun of me while also trying to convince me to get rid of the speedos (same thing I've worn in front of her on vacation, in our own pool, etc. for the past 15+ years). Other issue is our daughter had on a very light swimsuit, and thus appeared naked under the life jacket from the distance the photo was taken. I have no doubt the internet is full of photos of me in swim briefs when I consider all the triathlons I've finished and the open water swim group I've been participing in, etc.
The photo that the woman posted isn't identifiable and my wife only recognized it because she's familar with my paddle board, swimsuits, etc. Since I purchased my paddle boards back in 2014, I've probably paddled thousands of miles up and down our local rivers wearing seldom more than a basic Speedo brief, but this is the first time that a photo was posted. My name doesn't appear anywhere in the photo or comments. I generally keep to myself and never approach people while out paddle boarding, but this one was taken with a cell phone from somewhere in the middle of the river, which tells me the woman was on a boat. Many boats passed by me, but I did notice one veering close, slowing, and moving erratically. That was probably the one.
Her actions were a bit obnoxious, but the boat did not circle me or get close enough to create any danger, so nothing illegal was done. I went ahead and screen capped her post with the photo of me in it and I'm also keeping an eye on her post for a few days. So far, 10 "likes" (mostly women) and no comments. I'm not going to respond to her in any way. If there is a problem, such as it going "viral" with me being identified, anyone who tries to criticize me (as gay, etc.) will only succeed in crucifying themselves in social media. I say this because my speedo actually covers a bit more than about 1/2 of the bikinis most women wear. In light of this, any attacks will only backfire to make the attacker appear hypocritical, sexist, or homophobic. For that reason, my plan is not to respond on social media and just keep on doing exactly as I'm doing.
