    It's ugly as sin, though that's not a reason to ban it just a reason to not wear it.

    I supported the ban on head and face coverings
    Why on earth would you support that? I don't understand how this dress code nonsense actually gets turned into law.

    I could understand not allowing face covering to go into bank for security reasons, but forcing women not to cover up because of what you percieve the covering as representing is downright stupid.

    It is counter productive if you ban it.

    Xenophobia.

    I can see for puposes of the State say for a driver's license or some other ID that the face has to be visible. It may be possible that a cop may have to you take off a face covering if pulled over or something and he needs to make sure the person in the ID is the same as the one sitting in the car; things of that nature fine. But just full out bans...it's not justifiable. It's just hatred and ignorance.

    Seems like perfectly reasonable swimwear to me. And I don't share Ikari's opinion that it is "ugly" in the least.

    There's a rule against swimming while fully clothed. It's not discrimination. Any muslim that wants to swim, can, as soon as they follow the rules for pool use.

    If they don't like those rules, nothing is stopping them from building their own swimming pools....using their own money.

    They are minding their own business.

    Their business was to ensure people followed the rules regarding pool use.

    The damn female muslims in this country wanted to have their driver's license photos taken while their were wearing their masks....er veils. That didn't fly, fortunately. If they don't want to have their photo taken for their driver's license, with their full face showing, then they don't have to have a license....but they're not allowed to drive without that license, just like everyone else.

    No, that violated the basic human right of everyone who wants to be a billboard for their own gullibility.

    This was a simple "no clothes in the pool rule".

    And how is that accomplished by banning full length swimsuits with hoods?
