A Vancouver swing dancer failed to have his complaint heard by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal after he was accused of “mansplaining” to other dancers.

Mokua Gichuru first filed a complaint with the tribunal early last year after he was banned from the Vancouver Swing Society, but the tribunal did not accept his complaint as the society was within its rights to ban a member.

Gichuru then filed an appeal alleging he had been discriminated on the basis that he was an older man interacting with younger women. The appeal was also denied after the tribunal found that his allegations of discrimination based on race were “speculation,” while allegations based on age and sex didn’t have merit.
