    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.
    I can't stand all that garb. However forcing them out of it isn't all that different from forcing them into it.

    As for the bold bit it's all relative. At most public pools you can go topless while I can't.

    Whoever told you that you weren't being oppressed is lying to you. If it makes you feel any better, I am being oppressed to a somewhat lesser degree.

    Seriously. I think people should wear whatever they want. I also think that women should want to swim topless. And women should want to laugh a lot at the pool. Yeah.

    And?

    Plus I seriously question the health aspects of that "burkini".. at least with normal bikini or one piece you can see if the person has taken a bath the last week.

    Thats my point. If we don't ban them now, at the beginning of its roots, and we do it for later, its going to affect more people uneccessarily in the future, might as well get it done now. Not that Europe has any place for these people in society anyway, i think banning them will liberate them totally and help free up the backward thinkers we have in excess over here in Europe.

    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.
    Carole obviously wasn't brainwashed by a male dominant.

    PS: Who the hell are you on about in specific?
    Dude, did you not read the link from your own post? Carole, the chick who said all the stuff in the OP.

    This law liberates such women, your getting confused.
    You are going to sit there and tell me that a law forbidding women to wear a burka liberates them from oppressive laws that tyrannically allow them to wear whatever they want, and then tell me that I am getting confused?

    How can you possibly confuse telling people what and what not to wear with "liberating" them?

    And the whole of France.
    And the French idiots that approved this stupid law anyways.

    Perhaps if you were "liberated" by being forced not to wear any clothes at all, you would be less of a backward thinker.

    Forget Carole, im not interested in "unique" cases.

    When those women are forced to wear Burka's in the first place, i think a law forbidding them will help liberate them from those traps, yes.

    How can you possibly confuse telling people what and what not to wear with "liberating" them?
    If that interpretation bullies women into wearing them, sometimes not giving them the choice is the best thing to happen to them. I think this piece of legislation is for the people, even though it may restrict a certain thing.

    I wish some of the obese hispanic woman that swim in the public areas at the lake would take these into consideration. Instead they swim in white bras and underwear and you know what happens when it becomes wet. Eww!

    Park officals will tell them to leave and dress in swim wear but untill they arrive you are left trying to find a safe area to place your eyes.
