There are all possible regulations in Schwmmbaedern, such as bathing cap coercion (is there still?) which are intended to serve general hygiene.There are also social norms dedicated to the better coexistence of all. For example, even in Germany, it is hardly allowed to go to the swimming pool naked at the moment, as this contradicts the moral feeling of a significant minority. However, those who dress additionally cannot really cause annoyance as long as the clothing does not raise hygienic concerns or poses a danger to the wearer or others. So a burkini made of swimsuit fabric is fine. Should we really force people in the swimming pool to leave certain areas of the body unclothed just because we are so used to it? I am allowed to wear long trousers even in the summer.
A burqa for hygienic reasons is not, after all, it is not swimwear.I also don’t think anyone would come up with the idea of swimming with these masses of fabric, which is going to be quite difficult.
But a burkini?Why not? I just don’t understand why it bothers people when other people want to cover their bodies for religious reasons. The women in the burkini obviously have no problem with the swimwear of the non-Muslims, otherwise they would not go to German swimming pools. So if they accept our swimwear and not only want to live in Germany but also actively participate in social life, I find it quite unfair and intolerant to exclude them, because they dress according to their religion.
How dressed someone goes to the swimming pool should be left to the swimming pool user.How beautifully it is always scolded that countries dictate to their women how to dress, but then a few air snappers are later spit out such regulations.
I don’t think a woman in a burqa would go swimming.That would somewhat undo the expediency of a burqa. Apart from the fact that the burqa is not swimwear. Then there’s the burkini. And if a woman decides – for whatever reason – for a burkini on her own, then she should also be free to use this swimsuit. Because that’s what this suit is meant for. For swimming.
And when some people start talking about hygiene concerns, I’m surprised, because such a burkini covers much more skin and hair than a bikini would.Hygiene concerns would have to be minimised. Or do we want to insinuate to the women who wear it that they wear this burkini many days and nights without washing, hmmm?
Especially “funny” for me is this question in connection with people who on the one hand echauff themselves about a burkini (or even a burqa) but on the other hand tell women with more body weight that they like to dress more (or at the same time at all at the same time should not go public).
serious… I understand concern about involuntaryness and coercion, about oppression.I also understand that it is demanded that at least the face, if not (medically) the body must be made visible by the authorities and doctors. But such a burkini does not hurt any co-bather. If anyone really has evidence that someone is being forced to wear a burkini, then go off with the evidence to the appropriate official body. But pronouncing blanket bans does nothing better. On the contrary, it makes the situation worse. You can’t just flip a switch.
We didn’t introduce the bikini overnight either.My goodness, my grandmother still wore a headscarf every day and would never have been seen in a pair of trousers or a short-sleeved short-sleeved dress until before she was 75.
Instead of coercion and pressure, one could try it with patience and gentle integration, hm?
There are people with a skin disease that looks ugly.Or with age spots, which doesn’t seem more attractive. And there are some who just feel ugly with bare skin. For whatever reason.
All of these can move well packed fear-free.
It is a sign of small human size to want to prescribe nudity.And it becomes even more embarrassing to promote such stupidity.
Such questions are part of a cultural understanding of the Middle Ages and not in our modern pluralistic society.
On the other hand, I would also like some bathers to be more packed.But that is my very personal attitude.
I don’t really like these garments.But 1. I think everyone should be allowed to dress as they like and 2. better swim in the burkini than not swim at all. There are other reasons besides the religious, why a person does not want to show himself in skimpy swimwear, such as being overweight.
By the way, the swimming instructors here in the indoor pool wear (short) wetsuits.
A Muslima who holds something on herself and wears the burqa not only out of eyewear, who wears the burqa not without reason.Such a woman does not even go to a swimming pool, where others run around more than half-naked and where men and women bathe mixed.
How do women swim in the countries where they wear a burqa?Maybe there is a separate bathroom for women only. Or woman only bathes at home? I have no idea about this. And here with burqa bathing, I think is rather not allowed. A lifeguard was already upset that the men’s swimming trunks had so much fabric that they should rather be close-fitting. And then a robe and off into the water? I don’t think that’s possible…
yes.Because everyone has to be able to determine for themselves what he or she can wear, and that should not concern other people. However, the wearers should not swim with it. That’s what the burkinis are for.
In the Philippines, many women, whether Christian or Muslim, bathe in leggings and long-sleeved shirts.this is what they do to protect themselves from the sun.

The girl is Catholic)
In Australia it is also common for men and women because of the high UV radiation.
The clothes are made of lightly drying plastic fabric.
There are also so-called Rash Suits, which hardly differ from the “Burkini” and are meant to be the divers in warm waters do not come to nettling corals or other nettles like jellyfish.
No by no means.It is a question of religion prevailing over the general with one another. If it were normal in this society to wear headscarves and black long coats it would be something else. But this society has changed. And all this covering up has only the background that a patriarchal belief system dictates to people how to behave. Meaning religion is above the local law. if men want to cover themselves up, that’s perfectly fine, but no one can dictate to another how he can dress or not. I fundamentally reject the burqa headscarf and the like.
