Calling a man bald is called sexual harassment in the UK


Calling a man "bald" can now be classified as sexual harassment, a UK judge has ruled.

The court compared the call of a bald man to comments about the size of the woman's breast.

The verdict, published Wednesday, was taken in a case where the insult was allegedly used against Tony Finn while he was working as an electrician for the British Bung Manufacturing Company.

Finn had worked for the company in Yorkshire in the north-east of England, for almost 24 years. Finn claimed he was called a "bald man" and was also threatened by his shift supervisor, Jamie King, in a dispute in July 2019.

Finn will receive compensation for the court decision.
