So it seems France has taken the bold step of banning muslim women from wearing “burkinis” on the beach. What’s a burkini? Well, truth be told, that’s open to interpretation, but basically it’s anything that head to toe ‘covers you up pretty good.”
Here’s the deal..I had a skin cancer removed a few years ago and when I go to the beach these days, you better believe I’m ‘covered up pretty good.’ Would I be fined sitting on the beach in Saint Tropez? Where is the dividing line between acceptable sun protection and being escorted away by the Gendarmes?
So yeah, I think the whole burkini beach ban thing is dumb. Frankly, I see plenty of other stuff at the beach I should call the fashion police about… but let me also say that I have been at Sea World in Orlando on a blazing hot summer day next to women sweating profusely under full black burqas.
I loathe the look of those things..and for a woman in menopause?.. I can only imagine that it’s TOTAL NIGHTMARE.😓🔥
I know, I know, there will be people who claim they love ’em, and to be honest there are days I wish I could just run to the grocery store with a blanket over my own head because my hair looks so awful..but please, don’t even try to tell me that the majority of these muslim women prefer this claustrophobic “uniform” – I don’t buy it. Not that I’d be any more comfortable wearing one of these..
..but last time I checked, the Pope isn’t ordering all Christian women to dress like nuns. I guess in the end what I care most about is personal freedom and each person’s individual right to choose what they want to wear..even if I would never choose the same for myself.
