(THE BLAZE) – Calling a man “bald” is sexual harassment, a U.K. tribunal ruled earlier this week.
A U.K. tribunal said that calling a man bald is akin to commenting on the size of a woman’s breasts, Sky News has reported. As such, the term – when used in an apparently derogatory manner, as it was in the case of U.K. man Tony Finn – can now be classified as sexual harassment.
A CNBC report noted that three members of the tribunal alluded to their own personal experiences with hair loss and said that baldness was “more prevalent in men than women,” therefore arguing that the use of the term “bald” is an insult that is related to a “protected characteristic of sex.”
