Pork is good !!!!!!!
Millamopico (and many others, in so many words) said: "As it has been said before, these racist comments are really appalling."
Sorry, sounds like the real racists are those who, like yourself, willfully confuse race and religion; that`s tantamount to assuming all Islamists are Arab! Is that what you`re saying? Are they? No. Then we can condemn whatever religious claptrap we wish to without it making a racial statement, nor as pointed-out earlier, a cultural one; though I don`t feel we should be restrained from condemning any culture, including our own, nor required to accept and respect them all as `equal;` they`re not! How are you supposed to celebrate diversity when everyone is the same! Pick a side; you can`t have it both ways.
They look a bit over the top but that`s because I am used to bikinis. To a Muslim, bikinis probably look inappropriate.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and the ability to make their own choices.
The only way to solve all this is proper education. Not to ban religion or to make one dominant but to educate everyone in every belief - that way everyone has the full facts and can choose how they want to be under no external influence or pressure. This is the only way you can then say *I am doing what I want to do and how I think it should be done*
You`ve never been to an Islamic country, apparently. B-|
My husband is Muslim (I`m not, but we work it out), and we visited his home country a few times. There are more bints in bikinis than there are fully-covered women in religious gear.
I assure you, its not what you think it`d be over there.
It`s not so much the breast that they treat as sex organs, but rather specifically the female nipple. On the beach, one can show as much of the breast as one likes (3/4) but heaven forbid should one not cover the nipple.
"it`s part of a culture, of which, like it or not, should be respected as the equal of any other."
It`s easy to confuse culture with religion because in modern times not many people feel the necessity to distinguish between the two. I`m aware I said otherwise in the past and I have erred, but long-standing religious tradition does not transmute into culture; it is still only religious tradition and as such, privy to our disrespect.
"alot of young muslim girls here have chosen to wear the burka."
It`s only a delusion of choice when such harsh consequences for not wearing a burqa are preached.
Respecting it is the absolute worst one can do. There is simply no good reason to respect the removal of freedom involved in controlling (whether directly or indirectly) one`s wardrobe.
Then maybe the men in that society have some problems if they can`t watch women`s ARMS and LEGS without "temptations". I respect their lifestyle, even if I don`t understand it. I just want to live in a world where men and women are equal. In all sectors of everyday life.
Just because things like this aren`t commonly seen wherever you live, doesn`t mean it`s abnormal. People have different ways of living. At least respect that.
Sex organs and the entire body are two different things..."
I`m pretty sure that breasts are not "sex" organs.
Farquaadhnch, I`m not surprised your friend feels more comfortable wearing that atrocious thing by virtue of the fact that as a Muslim and how you are describing her, she was likely indoctrinated into believing any other form of dress is unacceptable to her family, society, and God (correct me if she did not grow up in the Middle East). She may have a choice now, but she didn`t have a choice as a child when religious tradition, merited or not, was piled onto her without any sincere regard for her well-being.
Religion is just a set of rules that one follows in hopes of ending up in a better afterlife (most religions anyway). You can, of course, ignore the rules and live your own way, but it won`t be impressing God and you won`t be getting a better afterlife.
Analogize this with an office environment or an interview. There`s a dress code one should follow. YOu can of course wear something else, but your boss won`t like it. No raise for you! Probably even get fired.
So YOU may not agree with the laws. But you should NEVER stop people from obeying the laws, coz it`s not your life being affected. Think, people (sadly something lacking in today`s society).
when i went to the Kalahari i saw some girls wearing something like that
Sex organs and the entire body are two different things...
In other countries where it isn`t a choice, it isn`t ok, but don`t lump everyone under the same blanket of "it`s oppressive" or "it`s sexist" when some of this company`s patrons come from areas where they can choose.
Heaven forbid some people would rather buy this instead of buying a thong and a top that barely covers their breasts.
Yes, yes they should.
People hate because they have closed minds. Wearing whatever swimsuit makes you comfortable is ok, being American is ok...
Just don`t try to shove your beliefs in other people`s faces, and, yes, we do that and Osama`s latest video proves they do it too.
Eeeer,no. Not exactly at all. You don`t need a discovery special to tell you when the suit you put on looks like sh*t, you don`t need a discovery special to tell you that the dress you put on makes you look like a fat frump, and you don`t need a discovery special to know when a swimsuit looks like a f*cking joke.
I think some people need to grow up.
The fact of the matter is, you don`t have a clue what is going on right in front of your face unless there`s a special on discovery channel about it.
Meanwhile in non sexist USA. Men cover their penis or else be arrested.... and women need to cover.... omg twice as much.
If sexism is about treating men and women differently, why is your culture less sexist? So the middle east is stricter, that`s not sexism.
Men aren`t allowed to wear gold, perfume, there are entire malls dedicated to women in the middle east, entire banks, all where men are not allowed to enter, women are entitled to keep all the money they inherit while men must give a portion of it to female family members, etc etc etc.
There are just different rules. The idea that it`s sexist against women is just because you don`t have a clue what rules there are for men.
"FIRTS!! lol sorry 4 that its my only time i have benn first"
What`s wrong with you? Didn`t you get enough oxygen during childbirth?
It`s part of a tradition and now they can swim comfortably. Just because western females wear almost nothing at the beach doesn`t mean everyone has to.
anyways, people can dress as they wish regardless of my opinion. I havent cared about fashion, well... ever.
This is funny tho.
