    And that aint the issue. The pool she was in had a rule set on what can and can not be worn in the pool and this was due to health issues. She did not follow these rules and was barred.. end of story.

    She is free to go to the beach or other pools that do not have these rules, but noooo she has to make another "Islam under attack" bs claims in France and get her 15 min of fame in the US.

    First of all, by saying "my pool" I did not mean that I own a pool.
    It's like saying "my gym" or "my cellphone company".
    In the pool I'm attending, getting into the pool with your clothes on is illegal out of health concerns and hygiene.
    That was just to clear things up.

    In regard to the alleged swimsuit, it looks like something you'd wear during a trip to the center of Antarctica, and not something you swim with.
    I don't think I want you making my laws
    How could I possibly be making your laws?
    You're overreacting.

    You cannot judge if it is oppression Kaya. Neither can i.
    It is a choice and i'd prefer no state gets in such a business of telling me what is/is not right tbh.

    In this case, rules is a acceptable ground.

    When I hear of such things, I can't help but think of France's colonisation period of Algeria and the old film or photo archives showing French women wearing bikinis on Algerian beaches and walking arund in their western-style clothes which looked very provocative to the eyes of Muslim Algerians.

    I think that France should have respected the Muslim traditions in Algeria then and Muslims living in France should respect the French way of being now.

    It used to be that men cut the legs off a pair of pants and called it a swim suit.

    The threads would come off into the pool and break the filter system.

    .
    In the early to middle part of the 19th century in this country, much discussion centered around the notion of one person owning another. It was not at all uncommon for those who were owned to express support for such an arrangement, especially if they worked inside the house rather than in the field. Others who supported the notion of one person owning another then took these sorts of opinons as proof that such slavery was perfectly justified. After all, they could find some slaves who expressed the opinion that it was their CHOICE to be slaves.


    Of course, this did not mean they were any less owned than if they complained.
