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

My argument, put simply, is to leave the women and kids out of this fight all together. They're born into it and OFTEN heavily pressured to toe the line. Let them have the burkini at the beach. If anyone feels pressure to change it should be the men.

Your rudeness towards Christosterone is unwarranted and disrespectful, even more so from someone that cannot analyze issues at the same level has said member.

However, I think this burkini ban is ridiculous. Banning this is a form of banning freedom of expression, and I am totally against it.
Forcing women to live in mobile prisons is the antithesis of expression.

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.
Because we know there is Sharia Law and these women face violence and even death for not covering themselves in a mobile prison. Its a choice like the battered wife of a drunken bully chooses to stay in the relationship.
You people have gone from suck to blow. It's our business because we prefer not to see our societies turned in to 3rd world $hit holes.

I thought people went to the beach to catch some rays, get tanned, swim in the sea maybe.
That is the idea of the beach ie. no obstructions from the sun.
