City mayors may now decide what you can or can't wear - sswbm - 08-17-2016 05:54 AM

You know those varying clothing restrictions that almost every school has? Well now they've expanded it outside of school.
This one ruling is temporary at least but it doesn't bode well.
To be precise, in certain cities it's now forbidden to wear a swimsuit that also covers your hair, because, uhm, terrorism and sexism apparently. Nutter

PBS Newshour Wrote:A beachgoer in Cannes, France, can now be fined and asked to leave the beach if caught wearing a “burkini,” a full-body swimsuit preferred by Muslim women.

Cannes mayor David Lisnard said the burkini is a “symbol of Islamic extremism” and might disturb the peace in the wake of Islamist attacks on France, BBC reported.

Lisnard’s new official ruling says that “access to beaches and for swimming is banned to any person wearing improper clothes that are not respectful of good morals and secularism.”

“Beachwear which ostentatiously displays religious affiliation, when France and places of worship are currently the target of terrorist attacks, is liable to create risks of disrupting public order,” the ruling continued.

The ruling is temporary and in effect until the end of August, the Associated Press reported. The penalty is a 38 euro fine.

The ban has received sharp criticism from French media. Le Monde, a French newspaper, challenged the law’s legality, while another French newspaper, Liberation, accused the ban of being purely political.

[...]

Italy has also put a stop to “burkinis” in certain parts of the country, The Telegraph reported.

[...]

The League of Human Rights said in a statement that it would challenge the “burkini” ban in court.

What the people supporting this have to say (actual quote from a French newspaper apparently): Rofl

Uhh... this is constructive how? Cuckoo

This cannot possibly make anything better. At all. In any way whatsoever. Ever. Only worse.

Yeah. I know a lot of people are forced to wear these things by their religion, but, this? How is being forced not to wear something less bad than being forced to wear something?

"Not respectful of good morals and secularism" lolwut. Do they not realize theocracies say things like "you must be respectful of good morals and [religion]?" 'Good morals' is so subjective as to mean nothing. So, what are the good morals of secularism? Going by this it means you aren't allowed to wear clothing that reveals parts you don't want to reveal. So wanting to dress modestly (for a given value of modesty) is a crime now? How are they legally distinguishing this from just a shirt and pants? Do they?

This is just stupid on every imaginable level. "Denying the body of a woman?" So you are saying that her body is more important than her autonomy to choose what to wear. You have made it a law that women can't go to the beach in more than practically underwear regardless of whether they want to, and you claim to be against sexism?

What. The. Fuck.

I went to France when I was two and didn't remember it, nonetheless this makes me feel unclean. I will never go there again.

Well said. I understand there being a backlash against radical Muslims, but this isn't going to stop terrorism. I think we all agree that preventing women from wearing their Islamic clothing won't fix anything.

Makes you wonder if they're become an atheocracy or something...

It's like the opposite extreme on sexuality. One extreme doesn't allow you to wear revealing outfits and forces you to hide your sexuality. The other doesn't allow you to be modest and practice abstinence.

Good morals are good morals whether religious or secular, and part of good morals is letting people do harmless things, like wearing their preferred swimsuit for pete's sake instead denying them their religious decisions. It's a matter of religious freedom.


RE: City mayors may now decide what you can or can't wear - no - 08-17-2016 05:49 PM

Good morals are indeed subjective. People who think, for instance, that homosexuality is wrong, even though they are little more than hateful quidnuncs, do not magically cease to exist. They have taken as an axiom "everything in this book good moral advice" while you have taken as an axiom "you can do what you want without hurting anyone." I agree with you, but it's also important to remember that this is a gut feeling and there is exactly zero evidence for either position. You can't prove something moral or immoral. (Well, there is a school of thought that you can. But you can't prove whether or not it's possible to prove that something is moral.)


City mayors may now decide what you can or can't wear - DreamRebel - 08-17-2016 06:02 PM

I'd say you can prove what good morals are and aren't, it's just that loads of people don't bother to figure out if their or other sets of scruples are actually good ones.
But then again, even the above statement is kind of flawed when you take into account that what's harmless for some isn't so harmless for others, and sometimes people have no choice in some of their actions, and whatnot. And of course there'll always be somebody to argue with you, even if it ends up being yourself.
In other words, we're both damn right. XD

Europe's sadly going through a movement where far right fringes are taking mainstream stage. If the British economy collapses, then these far right fringes will disappear.

Freedom in general. Some non-religious people wear that type of swimsuit too; not because they are forced to but because they like it. It's not a burqa.

True. I forgot that in light that is was because of religious paranoia that they banned it.

There is a patriarchy in the middle east and so if these people don't cover up, they get murdered by other Muslims. But yes I agree putting a restriction on certain clothing is fucking retarded.

muslims that are willing to murder or even beat female muslims for not wearing their stupid clothing don't belong in secular countries tbh.

why is this in school talk anyway

fucking retards smh

I think it's in school talk because it's similar to how schools decide what students can and can't wear.

only the first line was really related to school. it was clearly intended to be a thread more political in nature and that's how it developed.

No, Korravatar is right. Others turned it into religion-related politics.

Quite the opposite actually in most cases but seeing as Brexit was essentially stamped by the right-wing, then everything going to shit will be blamed on them. Where they're not in power though, a growing economy totally deflates their "muh economy being destroyed" narrative.

Look at what happened to the German right-wing when news of a five-year positive growth report came up. Totally shut em up when they were spending the last few months screaming about how refugees and immigrants were destroying the economy and they had "proof" of it.
