我從小喜歡游泳,但公眾泳池從來都不是個安全的地方。多年來泳池經常發生非禮案,女性游泳時總是提心吊膽。我在九十年代學游泳時有過多次被非禮的恐怖經歷,現在真不忍心看見再有女童受害。

翻查資料,光是上年警方已接獲多宗泳池非禮案舉報,當中包括:

2017年6月4日
85 歲姓黄老翁非禮8歲女童 (大角咀)

2017年7月24日
50 餘歲男子非禮6歲及9歲女童(將軍澳)

2017年9月18日
26 歲姓莊男子非禮 23歲女子(馬鞍山)

有游泳習慣的女人都知道,泳池非禮案不只是每年幾單,沒有報案的數之不盡,色狼也是看準在泳池捉人困難才會選在這裡犯案。要保障女性安全,最有效的辦法就是開設女性專用游泳線。

說起女性專用線,原來廣州今年五月已經有!也就是有太多女泳客投訴被男性撞擊而開設的。

我上星期已在康文署網頁書面要求女性專用游泳線,尚未收到回覆,若當局繼續懶理,我會發起簽名運動,到時希望大家支持。如果你有同樣訴求,請 like 及 share 這個帖,留言支持和 tag 身邊喜歡游泳的朋友。

Keep girls safe! We need female only swimming lane!

I love swimming, but it is never safe for me to swim in public pools. For many years there has been countless reported cases of sexual abuse in the pool, women and children are swimming in fear. I have experienced those horrible abuses as a child in the 90’s and I cannot bear to see little girls today going through the same.

According to the news archive, in year 2017 alone the Police force had received numerous sexual assault cases in swimming pools, including:

4 Jun 2017 85 y/o Mr. Wong molesting 8 y/o girl (Tai Kok Tsui)
24 Jul 2017 50+ y/o man molesting girls 6 and 9 years of age (Tseung Kwan O)
18 Sep 2017 26 y/o Mr. Chong molesting 23 y/o girl (Ma On Shan)

Women who swim would know that sexual assault did not just happen few times a year, there are much more incidents not being reported due to the difficulty in catching the creep, that also explained why those men chose to make advances in the water. To keep women and little girls safe, the best way to go is to assign female only swimming lane.

What's more? Just realised Guangzhou is already having female special lane in public pools as too many women reported being strike by male swimmers!

I have written to LCSD last week, let’s see what they can do. If they remained uninterested to improve our safety I am going to need everybody’s signature. Meanwhile if you agree on this issue please like and share this post, feel free to comment and tag your friends.
