Tori’s fiancé Tyler Newman was outraged that his future wife was being treated this way, when the girl next to them, who Tori described as being “smaller” than her was wearing a strapless bikini.
Tori felt that she was targeted for her body type, which you’re about to see is completely perfect! Tyler posted photos of Tori, along with a very impassioned statement about the ordeal on Facebook:
“Today my fiancée was told she is less important than how men feel around her. That Tori is less important than a man’s urges to be sexual towards her.
I think she’s the most beautiful woman in the world, but I also respect her. I would never make her or any other woman feel less than what she’s worth because of her outfit or her looks.
This is how rape culture continues to grow.”
I have never really witnessed sexual harassment and/or "rape culture" until today with Smoky Crossing Apartments. Today…
Tyler explained that Tori went into the leasing office to speak to the agent politely and privately and was told that the woman wouldn’t want her own kids around Tori.
She told her that because her body was more “curvy” than others, and that she should find more appropriate clothes to wear. The woman also insisted on taking Tori’s photos to show her how “inappropriate” she looked.
“My fiancée being told she should cover up on a 90 degree day in our own apartment pool because she will ‘excite teenage boys’ is bullsh*t. I will not stand for this.
My fiancée should be able to wear a bathing suit without being sexualized and demeaned. She shouldn’t feel violated.”
Tyler feels that because Tori is being held responsible for the possible feelings or actions in boys/men, it is “how rape culture continues to grow.”
