    I didn't agree that they should be banned, but now, I'm thinking a ban is in order.

    Really? Then maybe they should stop oppressing women by telling them what and what not to wear.

    You mean, besides the requirement that people shower first?

    It'll keep huge masses of possibly dirty cloth out of the water.

    Naked...the only correct way to swim.

    Ok, if it is a skinny dipping only pool I can see the justification in disallowing all swimwear. I am fairly sure that isn't the case in this story though.

    You mean the men that brain wash them, with there (theoretically evident) oppressive approach to Islam which actually isn't the religion itself therefore non discriminative? Dont worry, we are stopping that. If this interpretation of Islam promotes female oppression, it has no place in our society; if you can tolerate such things and live with yourself, go ahead. Thankfully, it seems France has a conscience.

    Dont tell me, we are discriminating against terrorists because there interpretation of Islam says strap a bomb to yourself and kill anything that doesnt swear allegiance to Allah and Shariah law, yet we have banned the availibility of C4's and any other warfare based weapon in public? Fine.

    Dude, the chick is not being forced to wear the thing by anyone. She wasn't even raised under Islam. She is a French chick who converted, and she wants to dress like an idiot, completely of her own volition. She is being oppressed by a a sanctimonious self-righteous group of people who consider regard themselves as liberators for forcing people to conform to their own (obviously superior ) idea of what to wear.

    Free women wear whatever they want. Oppressed women are told what and what not to wear. Those who support laws telling women what or what not to wear are oppressors. Those who support banning outfits that they don't like are oppressors.

    In other words, you.

    The club I belong to doesn't allow clothes in the pool at all. Swimsuits only. For whatever reason many if not most public pools have this rule.

    The interpretation its self is opressive against women and is counter to western law, and its against our interests as a progressive society to allow such things. If they are not forced, great, but they are, by an absolute majority, brainwashed and forced by there male dominants.

    PS: Who the hell are you on about in specific?

    Free women wear whatever they want. Oppressed women are told what and what not to wear. Those who support laws telling women what or what not to wear are oppressors. Those who support banning outfits that they don't like are oppressors.
    This law liberates such women, your getting confused.

    In other words, you.
    And the whole of France.
