No bad smelling men please

The Gulf Times leads today with the continuing story of labourers barred from Malls.

The latest mall to ban single men has been the Hyatt Plaza.

We have noticed before, when in the Hyatt Plaza, that there have been a number of labourers, presumably as fall out from Villagio, which has closed its doors to them on their single day of leisure.

Now this remaining oasis of Air Conditioning and shopping has been closed to the men, although Hyatt Plaza has promised to be more flexible than Villagio, only turning away "bad-smelling, poorly-dressed adult men."

Presumably, only security guards with a good sense of fashion will be allowed on the front door. Even then, they will be forced to sniff every man coming through the door before the man will be allowed entrance.

No mention was made regarding badly dressed and smelly women.

One comment regarding this issue was left on our City Center review.

The man leaving the comment was understandably irked that he could not enter the City Center shopping mall. However, his comment may not be agreeable to either women or the libertarians amongst us, his solution being that all unaccompaied women stay at home to make way for the men.
