Or 2016.

When I go to the beach, a lot of kids are wearing full length sleeve tops. Boys and girls.

They aren't banning Catholic nuns from wearing summer habits at the beach.

This is ludicrous.

Please keep these ghastly women in extra layers of clothes ! In fact, I would put a weight limit on this and force all women over 130lbs to wear the Burkini's.

Sweat it out ladies !

I would guess that if one of the women took it to court France will be found to be acting contrary to the ECHR - articles 9, 10 and 14.

Furthermore having been told that the burkini is banned, going to the beach in one is a prime example of the kind of civil disobedience we, and the French, should welcome.

Banning men's speedos would probably serve the populace better than banning the Burkini yuk

I understand the historical impulses behind France's aggressive commitment to secularism - which was of course, initially anti-Catholic.

But it's absurd to ban a woman of any religion from covering herself at the beach. That comes pretty close to banning such women FROM the beach, doesn't it?

As some have pointed out, this is just bigoted nonsense because a woman who covers up that much for non-religious reasons (such as being fair skinned and prone to rapid sub burn) would be fine under the law in the exact same kind of outfit.

The Twitter savvy amoebas are upset that French police are telling women they must change or go home.

Say, doesn’t Islam tell women what they can and can’t wear?

Since France is telling women what to wear, they must be no different.

Right?

Right, the Government is the same as Religion. What a great point.

So you agree that telling women what they can and cannot wear is wrong, correct? If it's wrong for religion to do it, then it's wrong for government to do it. Two wrongs don't make a right, etc, etc, etc.

Yes, its silly as fuck. But after what France has been through in recent month, I don't blame them for tying to protect their culture from the Islamic cultural invasion.

Yeah, but you cowards have trouble calling it even on both sides.

So you think France's attempt to remove "burkinis" from the beach will help save them from the "Islamic cultural invasion"? Interesting.

The mind of a conservative is so baffling to me.

Cowards?! Whatever. I despise Islam's rules about what women have to wear, but I despise governments' attempts to attack those rules even more.

Jeremy is an idiot. France is supposedly doing this over security concerns. "In the context of a state of emergency and after recent Islamist attacks in France, the conspicuous display of religious signs, in this instance in the shape beachwear, is susceptible to create or increase tensions and risk affecting public order." Not to protect their society from cultural invasion. I think it's a temporary ban at best. In reality, I think it's mostly a mollification policy that's popular with their voters.

Yeah, well, I think it is stupid, counterproductive, and actually encourages groups like ISIS.
