Thoughts? I think it's dumb to restrict what people can and can't wear and say you're protecting freedom. It's probably an Islamophobic thing.

If you are against what burqas and burqinies "represents" then go fight against those ideals instead of banning the clothes

Five people were injured and three cars set ablaze in the village of Sisco Saturday after a dispute between beach-goers ended with both sides reportedly throwing stones and bottles at one another. The French Interior Ministry reports 100 police officers were needed to restore order. An inquiry has been opened to determine what prompted the brawl; a witness said the fight began after tourists took photographs of women wearing Burqinis


What exactly of this beach-fight tells you that burqinis are something that needs to be banned? You could just as well make an argument for banning cameras at the beach.

Yeah this is stupid I'd totally want to wear a burqini for reasons unrelated to religion. Besides it just looks like a wetsuit with a hood pretty much.

I bet France only allows them to wear a white cloth to the beach

Fucking ridiculous. It's more dangerous to let people swim in regular long clothing than in a body covering suit with lightweight fabric designed for the water.

Also I thought the western world was over telling women how much of their body they have to expose?
