CONTROVERSY surrounding the swim attire worn by some Islamic women has prompted the development of a new policy on dress standards for the WA aquatic industry.
Since when has it become acceptable to do your weekly wash at the local pool?How ridiculous !!!
Is this matter really about, 'swim-suits' or about 'challenge' ie. to a cultural Australian feature; a reasonable civil norm.It does seem that Islamics have well learnt a religious facet of 'imposition'.
Little by little they wear us down, useing our own laws against us, the same as cancer.
In an age of skin cancer we should all be doing as the Muslims do. Cover up or perish.
Women can dress in modest customes as our religious nuns do. Safety first! if we travelled to Muslim Countries then we would adjust to local customs-think this so-called "tolerance" has gone too far!
When in Rome.....
Why is it refered to as 'religious' dress, yes they have to dress modestly but the full kit worn is a CHOICE not a religious mandate. Wonder how it would go down if I turned up at a public swimming pool in full motorcycle gear for a swim?? My choice not my religion.
You do not swim in your clothes , it is unhygienic and dangerous. Most pools request swimmers to shower before entering their pools. Public tolerance can only go so far ,this matter is going far to far away from all rules for all society. Conform or don't swim,
