I created the burkini to give women freedom, not to take it away

That's a lie. I would ignore it because you are deliberating misunderstanding liberals' positions on Islam in order to write your condescending threads about us.

I don't agree with Islam criminalizing homosexuality any more than you do, but that is a social issue. Hell, if some Christian groups had their way homosexuality would be criminalized here. Thus that is an issue that can be talked out and discussed with Muslims peacefully. When I talk about Islam being misunderstood, I am talking about people labeling it a religion that breeds terrorism. Such reasoning breeds hate and tears down opportunities to come to an understanding on social issues like the homosexuality issue you are talking about or the burkini issue you brought up in the OP.

YOU and your strawmans about liberals are the problem.

Burkini bans in France have sales of full-body swimsuit soaring, says designer

Australian Aheda Zanetti says controversy in France has sparked interest, particularly from non-Muslim women who want protection from the sun

“I can tell you that online on Sunday, we received 60 orders – all of them non-Muslim,” the 48-year-old from Sydney said. She usually received between 10 and 12 orders on Sundays.

They include messages from cancer survivors and other swimmers who use her lightweight, quick-drying, two-piece garments as protection from the sun.

“A lot of the correspondence ... was that they are survivors of skin cancer and they’ve always been looking for something like this, saying, ‘Thank god we’ve found someone like this producing such a swimsuit,’ ” she said.

Burkini ban good for sales


Sdriuosly. Some of you hardcore rightwingers have more incommon with hardcore islamists than you think. Who are you to decide what a woman should or should not wear on a beach ?

there will never be peace as long as humans are around, blaming this condition on religion is naive and lazy.

as far as money goes i think it perpetuates greed and allows one to hord and hide riches easier, but even if we were on the barter corruption would still run rampant

People aren't labeling anything. They can see the daily horrors brought to us by Islam with their own two eyes. Liberals like you cant get passed your ideological programming and instantly default to making excuses for what you see as a minority, protected group.

I am a moralist and see good and evil, black-and-white, right and wrong…
I do not need to go through your moral relativism hula hoops to explain why a birqa is good…

If you ever spent an extended time in an Islamic fascist theocracy u would understand what true oppression is…
And Europe is terrified of that oppression coming to their doorstep…

I can only assume you have zero context upon which to base your high-minded liberal opinions on the subject because they are without merit as far as I'm concerned because you have no context…

Again, I understand where you're coming from because I too am a child of the west and once assumed that all people shared my same morality and inherent human kindness…

Sadly that is not the case and my disdain is based upon experience; not philosophical gymnastics wherein i explain away the tendencies of a Stone Age cult to oppress women, homosexuals, and anyone deemed an infidel by their magic moon god of Arabia..

-Christosterone


High minded liberal opinions! Thats a first to be accused of that. I would say I am one of the more conservative members on ATS, but whatever. Try to stick to the arguments rather than name calling, it seems you are not very good at it anyways.

I understand there is tons of oppression that occur in the Islamic world. I have made posts all over ATS criticizing it, and criticizing progressives silence on it. For example, all of the talks of the US being a rape culture is ridiculous, I have said places like Saudi Arabia actually do have a rape culture, and I have made many other posts like this.

You make the mistake of saying "Islam is evil, therefore we must ban anything related to it" This is a joke.

I could go on all day as to why I think you are wrong, but here is the main point. You say that the burkini is a symbol of oppression towards women, and therefore should be banned. The creator of the burkini and many other Muslim women would say they are not being forced to wear this, but are doing so by choice. You claim that they are brainwashed and you know what is best for them.

This is EXACTLY what you accuse Islam of doing to these women. These women have the right to make their own mind up. You can't beat an authoritative mindset that tells women what they can wear by you yourself telling women what they can wear.

Can't you see the danger in this mindset? I assume you are not a fan of the Obama administration (perhaps I am wrong). What if they decide that those of us that are critical of Islam have been brainwashed by a hate filled ideology, and start censoring our expression?

That is why I will always default to personal liberty. It is not the place of the governement or anyone else to tel me or anyone what I can or cannot wear.

I am very critical of much of the way Islam is practiced, and I have criticized the lefts political correctness in calling out much of the anti-liberal (liberal in the freedom sense not the political one) behavior that occurs in the Islamic world.

However, I think this burkini ban is ridiculous. Banning this is a form of banning freedom of expression, and I am totally against it.


You have to understand the French mentality on this subject.
They have suffered attacks unknown to most of the high societies of the west…

Islamic garb is forced upon women by their oppressive culture and is viewed by many continental Europeans to be a symbol on par with the swastika..

Undoubtedly there were kind, decent Nazis, just as there were kind, decent inquisition era Spaniards, just as there are kind, decent Muslims…

But that does not mean one should or could walk around the beach with a swastika armband, a giant red cross upon a shield, or for our purposes a burqini especially on the heels of such violent attacks in the name of their magic moon god ...

-Christosterone


Actually you are missing something. France has got what some would say are extremely secularist rules about what you can and can't wear as expression of any religion. The burkini is actually banned on many French beaches, just as the burka is banned on the street.

Who is oppressing who? With your high minded western sensibilities YOU are assuming all the women who wear the burka do so because they are forced to. Although I don't doubt that there are times when this is the case (just like some women through peer pressure may wear clothes more revealing than they feel comfortable in), an awful lot of the time it's through free choice.

Comparing it to a Nazi armband is massively erroneous and is part of the problem IMHO.

what if all Muslims converted to Buddhism, i wonder what the world would be like...
but yea. when we think of freedom, expressiveness, creativity of expression.. Islam as a religion, not its practitioners, doenst come to mind.

repression, theocracy, rashness, archaic, violent, is what comes to my mind. when i think of this religion. the critical point here is that, it doesnt matter how many Muslim whom do not condone the violence of the extremist, what is critical is that this religion is such that there is nothing the non violent ones can do about it.
because by law, if they disavow the violence committed in the name of their deity, they are as bad as the infidels to whom the violent acts were against.

if a Muslim openly agrees with Western life style, or takes part in it, i would dare them to go to say, Iran or Afghan and be open about it...

I think we've got a problem here in France, that is rather complicated and a powder keg at the moment.
It is not because of new immigrants either.

I do not support the birkini ban. The reasons given by the mayors that have done it are that they wish to protect the muslim population from the other french citizens who are hostile against them. I do not know how true that is, really, but even if it is, it illustrates how the government basically gives all rights to whoever is the most violent!

I get very sick of this policy sometimes! Whoever does the most damage and violence gets their way.
That pleases the people when it is their "side" that is burning cars and hurting people, and they hate it when it is "the other side" that does it.

This country always seems to illustrate, for me, both the positive and negative aspects of democracy, in which the majority rules, as long as they stay active.

It is rather thought provoking.

Because this radical Stone Age cult has actually convinced the women(who are the oppressed class in Islamic communities to say nothing of Islamic nation-states) that THEY are responsible for this choice...


Why do you assume that Muslim women aren't smart enough to know what their own choices are? How is it, that you, a non-Muslim person, know better than them what THEY choose? It's really their business, not yours.



So let me get this straight...we are supposed to applaud statements like the following???
"Do I call myself a feminist? Yes, maybe. I like to stand behind my man, but I am the engine, and I choose to be. I want him to take all the credit, but I am the quiet achiever."


You needn't applaud it OR criticize it... Neither do you need to judge it. It's her truth and you should respect that she has her own mind and opinions. Why is it even your concern?

BenevolentHeretic,

Disclaimer: I find you to be exceedingly bright...

You are, however, too insulated by the high west to truly understand Islamo-fascism...

I wish there was a way I could transplant my experiences to your brain helping you to understand what the burqa actually represents…
From a philosophical standpoint, yes people can wear what they want to wear…

But wearing a burqa is not a choice regardless of the protestations that it is...
The Burka is a child of a societal sociopathy long since bereft of humanity which I know too well and I'm glad that you don't ...

I long for the time when I would've been on your side of the argument and come from a place of high minded liberal ethics believing that all people are inherently good ...

Time and experience robbed me of my naivety and awoke in me the realization that a cult whose sensibilities reside in the Stone Age cannot be beaten by the high west who has long since evolved out of mysticism and supplanted archaic myths with science...

Because now a shadow exists in the world and it is coming to snuff out the light of the west…
And our altruistic sensibilities will find is unequipped to combat such a foe...

Yes I agree.

There is no choice in the majority of cases.

Even in the cases were choice looks apparent on the face of it - that choice was born from conditioned mind sets and is highly influenced.

BenevolentHeretic,

But wearing a burqa is not a choice regardless of the protestations that it is...
The Burka is a child of a societal sociopathy long since bereft of humanity which I know too well and I'm glad that you don't ...


Durp durp durp, who says that wearing a burqa is not a choice ? Please provide well argumented proof for your thesis. How are you any better than Saudi regime that claims to know what woman should or should not wear ? Please, answer my questions,dont give me a horsecrap answer based on your personal experiences. Thank you

You are, however, too insulated by the high west to truly understand Islamo-fascism...


Don't patronize me! You don't know ANYTHING about me or my many experiences with Muslims born and raised in the Middle East!



I wish there was a way I could transplant my experiences to your brain helping you to understand what the burqa actually represents…


Why are you talking about a burqa? thought this thread was about the burkini. Ah! This thread isn't really about the burkini, is it? It's about your bigotry toward Muslims and the liberal left. It's about what you call "Islamo-fascism"... I see.

If you agree with France's ban on burkinis, would you support a ban in wearing crosses at the beach? NO! Never! Because that symbol represents a GOOD religion.

But where is the liberal outrage at that??

I start a thread about provinces throughout the Islamic world enacting laws which criminalize behavior they deem immoral and most of y'all will avoid it because it conflicts with your narrative that Islam is simply misunderstood…

In order to engage with your hypocrisy I must put out lower hanging fruit...
Thus the birqini thread...

lolwut
I am being accused of being a "liberal", of having a "narrative that Islam is simply misunderstood" and on top of that of being a "hypocrite". What kind of # do you smoke? Where did you find the basis for your accusations?

IMO, the French ban on the burkini is one of the silliest acts authorities could do.

French authorities pretend that they are protecting interests of locals, but actually they are strengthening the tension between groups without a real necessity.

Moreover, I won't be surprised (we are on the conspiracy site, huh?) that this ban story is made by design (on purpose), not by accident (not because of stupidity). [Not to mention the fact that burkini sales will grow unimaginably.]

P.S. I'm not a purist or a prude, but topless or naked ladies (If I may use that word here) is a much bigger problem on public beaches than the dressed ladies.

P.P.S. How on earth you may require a lady to undress in public (by armed police), if she does not want it? Do you have any common sense at all?


Your own blindness and your own lack of common sense are two of the main reasons Europe is becoming a 3rd world #hole. I see it just in this thread. Sorry, no offence. But don't blame me anyway.

I don't like Islam coming or going.

BUT

This allows women born into this system a chance to swim and enjoy some aspect of normal Western life without the fear of being "honor killed" for wearing a one piece.

People obviously think these women all have a greater degree of freedom than what they actually do. We're talking about women who often have suffered FGM and live under the threat of being killed by male relatives for not toeing the line.

I'm not a fan of taking away something from an already oppressed and abused group.

Now, if you'd like to give the men in that culture a swift cultural kick to the pants... OK. But, let the women have their day at the beach.

1.6 billion Muslims in the world. That is a drop in the bucket compared to the total number of Muslims. If you are honestly going to use that piddling amount of attacks as evidence to label an entire religion as violent then you are bigot.

Neither do I. I feel the same about it as I do about most other religions. Religion is not for me. There are great people and hideous criminals claiming allegiance to religions.

But the OP wants to paint ALL Muslims as uncivilized heathens, the women unable and too stupid to make their own choices, the men beating their wives and daughters into submission, and committing honor killings left and right... And, of course, he knows their minds. He knows them (and us) better than we do. Better than THEY do. He's supposedly got the experience that none of us have.

It's really a very arrogant and ignorant position to take.

I'm more on the side that these types of "bans" are intended to curb the assimilation of Muslims to the west's culture rather than the elimination of an "oppression symbol".

In my opinion it's rather smart since through policies like these the radical factor and "righteousness" of the Muslim population in relation to their culture will slowly decrease. With that said, the risk of the Muslim ideology taking over certain western countries can be kept to a minimum and in addition it will discourage other citizens of Muslim countries to come towards the west.

Note: And for those that say this is going against free speech rights. If you choose to move to a country with a different culture, it is YOUR job to adjust to the system in place. The system does not have an obligation to adjust in order to accommodate whom wishes to be part of it.

When you visit somebody else's home, you don't make the rules. That is just how it is and how it should be.
