Burkini pool party

A Muslim women’s group in France is fighting back against discrimination at public pools by renting out a city pool for an entire day for a ‘women’s only’ burkini pool party.

The Muslim Women’s Association, based in Marseille, is causing outrage by asking women to wear burkini’s — Muslim swimwear — to the pool party planned for September 17th.

The invitation stresses Muslim women must be covered from chest to knees.

Under Sharia Law, Muslim women must cover every inch of their bodies — even when swimming.

Less conservative younger Muslim women are allowed to wear a one-piece swimsuit with shorts or a sarong.

Boys up to age 10 are permitted to swim, but men are not allowed to attend the party.

Michel Amiel, mayor of Pennes-Mirabeau, is planning to ban the event on the grounds that it might cause public disorder.

“This is a provocation which is not needed in the current context,” he said.

French women are particularly outraged at the body shaming implications of the pool party.

“This type of event is not going in the direction of the laws of the Republic of gender equality. What shocks me is that we say to women they need they cover themselves, otherwise they are shameless,“ said Valérie Boyer, Member of the National Assembly.

A female mayor complained that Muslim refugees refuse to assimilate or adopt the customs and cultures of the countries they migrate to.

“This ‘Islamic Day’ demonstrates that a number of Muslims voluntarily cut themselves off from our Republican model,” said Stephane Ravier, mayor of the 13th and 14th boroughs of Marseille.

    Let’em have their day. Shit!

  • nucynu25

    Exactly , how you going to be mad that a woman wants to be covered up but you want ppl to respect yo nakedness… Stupid

  • Buttercup

    Let them live, dang!

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Maaaaan,i see mofos in the pool fully dressed….this is just too much.BUT if they wanna swim THIS badly,by all means have at it?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. If the pool is available for private events why should people complain?

  • Angela

    What is up with all of this “outrage”?…People need to be outraged about important things not things like this…

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    What Sandra failed to mention is that most of the criticism is coming from conservative politicians who think if they allow this event, it equals communism.

  • Empress

    Finally a swimsuit I look good in! Hope they have a great time!

  • MissHarlem

    Good do you. I definitely don’t agree with the culture of how their women is viewed and treated but that’s them not me. Carry on and enjoy. SN I was at a waterpark in Florida last week and two was wearing them. When I tell you they had a hard time in that water with the clothes weighing them down in the water….understatement ??? I died

  • yoni

    Even IF she did mention it, doesn’t mean it’s true. If it equals communism, then why are they still here?

    And this is not a gripe against YOU…..IJS.

  • darealQueenNefertiti

    I don’t see a problem..

  • Buttercup

    I would sink like a rock with all of that on.

  • yoni

    Right. They’ll get hot enough…. LOL

  • Kanyade

    back in the day when i was pure COGIC and wore only skirts i never got in the water, never swam. but today, after years of coming into my own and exercising some common sense, i wear bathing suits when i’m in the water.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks for saying what I was thinking but I couldn’t articulate as well as you did. ? ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Man, I don’t know why it’s so hard for people to let people believe in what they want to believe in and live the way they want to live. Dang, everyone doesn’t want to dress like a w.h..ore. If these women want to dress in potato sacks, let them. Shyt. Yt folks get on my nerves trying to impose their lifestyle choices on peope.

  • yoni

    As you should. LOL

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Um. Why the need to ban it. Let them swim.

  • nucynu25

    ???

  • MissHarlem

    Happy for you. When I tell you they was miserable and happy at the same time. Lawd

  • Kanyade

    yeah, but you know that old school COGIC logic:
    –women can’t wear pants
    –women can’t wear makeup
    –women can’t play sports
    –women can’t……….so on and so forth

    i’m so glad i got away from that thinking!

  • MissHarlem

    I was sinking just watching

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Good Morning, Sandra. I see you are in here this morning. Can we get a post on Melania Trump being an illegal immigrant (allegedly)? I mean I know how you feel about illegal immigrants coming over here and working and whatnot.

  • yoni

    You’re welcome. Now send me one of those LV backpacks to make it solid. LMAO j/k j/k

  • yoni

    Ain’t no “allegedly”. She’s YT, with an accent…..she’s illegal. LOL

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    My point is that the article implies all of France is in an uproar when it’s really the far national right. Otherwise, yes, much of what was written is true.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She’s not working. She is well provided for. Please leave that lady alone.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Are you in France? Then you don’t know who is expressing outrage. But, thanks for reading.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    I love it

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I had a part time job for years at the YWCA here (now closed due to funding). Worked there the entire time Dub21 was in elem to get discount after school care. They had a HUGE indoor pool. Islamic Center of Raleigh used to rent it out for the women once a month. Really early on a Saturday. 8 am. The only caveat? No men. They had to cover the windows with dark paper so nobody could look in. And we had to find a female lifeguard to come to work especially for them. There was only ONE female lifeguard and once she was really sick (I wanna say she had mono) and they cancelled. Was like thanks but we will pass this month.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She was working from 95-96 when she first came over here. Allegedly. And I thought that conservatives believed once an illegal immigrant always an illegal immigrant. I wonder if Trump wants her to leave, re-apply, and then come back here legally. Unh unh. He must be so torn right now…

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    I’m not in France but I can read sources other than Breibart.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you miss the part where I asked, “Please leave that lady alone”?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    She was working in 2000, when she was photographed nakked in a GQ photoshoot. The pic that had her handcuffed to a briefcase on a private jet belonging to her then boyfriend.

    Oh. Okay.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    My bad. I did. She cool… she cool…

  • LeBrick James

    They don’t wear bikinis… they wear burkinis. Ho-kay. Just the very word burkini is kinda funny to me.

    Anyway, I got nothing else for this. Lemme go get some work done…

  • Kanyade

    ha! i shout from the rooftops whenever i get the chance. just straight ignorance and hypocrisy, it was back then.

  • SameoleJ

    They aren’t rules and constraints to them, it is their culture.

    Well dayum….just shattering dreams of a comment catching your eye, huhn? They had a question and you just gonna say Nope, I ain’t even see it!!

  • SameoleJ

    No, for that shadiness….you can bawl like a baby….high pitched and piercing.

  • SameoleJ

    Going to go make sure I didn’t say something I should not have. Cause um, yeah!!

  • yoni

    That’s because he wanted to keep looking under yall skirts when yall sat down. LOL

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Its an interesting topic the Burka, how do you ladies feel?
    Do you think it prevents a man from lusting after a woman?
    Does lust have anything to with rape or is it only about control and power
    Does lack of lust prevent rape?
    Is this it cruel to require women to wear it in those countries where it is Muslim law?

  • yoni

    I USE TO ALWAYS think that. LOL

  • TheRealLee

    The French and other European females are under a slow assault for not covering up to the satisfaction of an incoming culture. A pregnant woman was beaten by women wearing burkas. Her crime is that they could see some skin so they punished her. And other women in Europe wearing normal clothes “are inviting rape” so they are told to cover more. The pool party thing is an over reach but it’s a clashing of cultures that goes beyond this. And if you think it’s not real, the elected mayor of London wants extra powers to remove ads showing skin. So wake up folks.

  • sunni_daze

    A female mayor complained that Muslim refugees refuse to assimilate or adopt the customs and cultures of the countries they migrate to.

    ^^^^So you have to give up your culture &identity if you migrated to another country…..The mayor sounds like a complete asshole.

  • yoni

    No. LMAO Bye!

  • Candance

    Damn… Can they live?

  • yoni

    The mayor might be on meth or crack, like many other mayors of her time.

  • Kanyade

    the skirts were super long…or were supposed to be. he was following old school COGIC rhetoric. was in his 60s/70s back then. i get your poking fun and that’s cool, but he wasn’t like that. overall, the teaching i received when i was younger was in line with COGIC and how it started off as Pentacostal. Hindsight is a sharp 20/20 and hypocrisy remains existent. COGIC isn’t the way it used to be but that still didn’t deter me from leaving the church.

  • nucynu25

    Auntie lit today….lol

  • yoni

    Do you think it prevents a man from lusting after a woman?

    No it doesn’t stop them……

  • MissHarlem

    This ends your font today. Lol good day

  • Buttercup

    I personally think, in this day and age, it’s a woman’s expression of modesty.

  • Kanyade

    Well I can say my pastor and his wife were being obedient to the doctrine of the church as it existed upon inception…coming from a Pentacostal background. But even while we received the teaching we did, the COGIC at its highest levels, even in the late 80s and 90s, operated contrary to its original believe system. We were a small church in a very small rural community following doctrine that was changing and is now presently in my opinion extinct; which is both a good and bad thing.

  • SameoleJ

    It wouldn’t take away from her being illegal though.

  • sunni_daze

    She on both.

    Live and let live!!!!!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I understand completely. I was born in a cogic church. My dad would allow the lights to get cut off because he said he has to pay his tithes. Well long story short my mother divorced his ads and he’s still doing dumb ish running from church to church.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    My personal opinion, BOTH sides go too far.
    Also, who are these women to tell these Muslim women that they MUST bow down to them and their secular ways?
    This is privilege, “white privilege” rearing its ugly head, again.

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Modesty, you dont hear that alot these days, the word seems almost foreign.

  • yoni

    It never left. The dates just changed.

  • SameoleJ

    A female mayor complained that Muslim refugees refuse to assimilate or adopt the customs and cultures of the countries they migrate to.

    ASSIMILATE——that word alone bothers me!! Yes, I know it just means to integrate or cause it to resemble, but most times things that assimilate are required to do so to the DOMINANT object.

    Maybe I done watched too many Star Trek episodes with the Borg.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Exactly. I have a cousin who is Holiness and she would never wear a swim suit of any kind.
    These people are being bullies. But, then these bullies, citizen the men bullies in the Muslim community.
    Ignorance and Hypocrisy, in its finest form.

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Wow, deep, …

  • MissHarlem

    Nope. Your bs antennas picked up on code word

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Allah bless ’em. I used to think that they were hot as hell in all those clothes, now I think they’re just conditioned not to notice.
    However, when I see them, and knowing some of the rules they have, I wonder if all the women look like 70s porn stars under there. You know bush au naturale?
    By no means am I trying to disrespect the Muslim women, but the mind wants to know what it wants to know.

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Where on earth did you happen to come across that video, ??Your sense of humor is Off the Chain…lol lol

  • shell

    Its pretty light weight plus they are use to it…

  • Spidey Sensitive

    My great-grandmother threatened to slap me when I was little because I was whistling. Apparently old school Trinis believed that girls/women shouldn’t whistle. My mother never learned to ride a bike because girls/women shouldn’t ride bikes. So many restrictions on women and so many of us feed into the rules that men created for us.

    We’re also to blame for everything from natural disasters to birth defects & sterility.

    I can’t please people/society so I worry about pleasing me and mine.

  • Rayne

  • SandrasNewFave

    Folks just mad to be excluded from something they didn’t want to go to. Find another reason to be mad.

  • Kanyade

    Thanks for sharing that. First the natural and then the spiritual. I have learned! It makes no sense to go without ‘lectric just so you can forward your money to the church. Did the church offer to pay the bill? Probably not. You have to exercise common sense. Glad your mom did LOL

  • yoni

    I don’t mean to offend anyone………if you’re offended. And yes it’s kinda dark at times. But I never mean to be disrespectful. Then again, I come her JUST to laugh and make jokes.

  • 88

    These ain’t no real muslims.

  • https://www.connectpal.com/f-u Nigg.Newton

    Exactly, they want those people to be what they want them to be. Everyone is different.

  • Kanyade

    Yeah women get the “blame” for so much in so many institutions of life: church, government, etc. and are limited access to do so many things due to menfolks’ decision-making. “I worry about pleasing me and mine” <–this, all the day long. You said a word there.

  • SameoleJ

    I agree with your statement, but how can you say the Muslim Women go too far? I am not talking about the one’s who convict bf told them to convert or the one’s who convert to prove that they are down for a man…..but those who are true to their culture and abide by the ways that were established before they were even thought of. If they want to swim, they have to remain covered, so this is the way that allows them to respect their culture but also enjoy.

  • gellie

    Yeah, I’m not seeing what the problem is…

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Lol

  • LeBrick James

    Marion Barry comes to mind for some reason…

  • Spidey Sensitive

    Men can’t control themselves (apparently) so women must cover themselves from head to toe in shapless fabric sacks for their comfort. If that’s how they want to live then fine, I really don’t care. I’m all for dressing conservatively but it seems terribly unfair that they can’t show their faces/hair/figures/ankles because men are lustfull.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Neither do I, they should not be expected tho throw their beliefs out the window.

  • LibraGirlonly

    They shouldn’t have to adopt the customs or culture of another land!! We did and look what happened to us. Hump. We don’t even know half of our history and culture.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Exactly

  • ZimSummer

    So maybe they should stay in their own countries

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    They sure didn’t. The pastor was driving a Cadillac and living in a bad house. The people there worshipped the pastor rather than God anyway so anybody who attended was doomed.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Why is that? America nor any other country doesn’t belong to one group.

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    I laughed, lol, I was a little surprised. Its beautiful gift to enjoy spreading laughter!

  • Spidey Sensitive

    No, but they shouldn’t be trying to transform the culture that was already there either. When in France do as the French do, right?

    They should maintain their own culture but I think the French want them to assimilate more.

  • Kanyade

    SMH. Worshiping the pastor rather than God has been “on trend” for awhile now.

  • SameoleJ

    Just gonna go ahead and pass this out to everyone now, cause um yeah…..they have arrived! #TROLLSANDTROUBLEMAKERS

    So you gonna say that word don’t make you think of the Borg and how they went around the galaxy taking over planets and killing those who didn’t assimilate?

    Wait…..don’t the Borg sound like a certain race?

  • sunni_daze

    No. It sounds like the french want to force a life style on them like Christ was forced on slaves. Assimilation don’t work, you’re still viewed the same.

Please they mean make America white again which is still insane because If America belongs to any group of people they are of a red and brown hue and I’m talking about Native Americans whom traded with Africans way before Columbus stepped his ugly asre on this soil.

    But that wouldn’t have to do with the clothing, unless it wasn’t clean. It would be attributed to hygiene and as @doesnttalk:disqus said eating habits.

    I’m sure there are many factors that contribute. Certain foods, lack of hygiene, and clothing that doesn’t allow the skin to breathe can all play a part.

    There are some ladies in my gym who train in burkas. Others I have seen are dressed in leggings and shorts. One of the girls on my track team wore leggings, shorts, long sleeves and kept her hair and neck covered.

    I’m tired of their arse they don’t know sheit but always talking crap. They are so freaking stupid. How can they call Zimmerman a hero after what he did. Trayvon was minding his own business and this dude stalked and killed him and it’s just business as usual and they called Travin the thug. It’s like dealing with a psychopaths.

    Why should they adopt customs and cultures that are not their own , if they don’t want to? They abide by their beliefs, which so many countries and people have none of . If they choose to stand firm in their religious beliefs , why would that bother anyone else? Especially those that have a anything goes type of attitude, and believes in nothing.

    It sure does. I know the ancient Kemet and Nubian held there woman with very high regard. I learned that doing my research on our history. The customs they had where ripped off by others but it was nice to see the black woman played an important role in the land. It’s so much to learn. Pull up Dr Ben Johanncann on you tube and John Henry Clarke. There are more but these two would be a great start. If you do let me know what you think.

    Ummm what can they do with our DNA? Why are soooo many black men in the DNA database not just in America. They did a study in London and I read that article, listening to lectures from great historians like Dr. Francis Welsing a well known prominent figure just like the men I mentioned before talked about how they are using our DNA and melinen for certain purposes. The things I learned caused me to change my eating habits because they poison our food and water. People may think this is crazy talk but it’s real check out Dr. Francis.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Good question but I think we all know the answer. Lol

  • LibraGirlonly

    Thank you I sure will check it out I saved it in my Amazon cart.

    I see, I was thinking of how they trace your family line , like on Ancestry.com. Definately not randomly mailing out DNA.I feel you there.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Does he?

  • Spidey Sensitive

    That’s one way to look at it that could very well be true. Immigration can be difficult for everyone involved. Growing pains.
    Everyone has to be more accepting of others but humans seem to gravitate towards conflict.

    I think they are overreacting about the swimming party. Let the women swim. I only recently (within the last 10 years) became comfortable enough in my skin to wear a bikini. I can understand if some people want to cover up at the pool and not have men oggling them.

  • Spidey Sensitive

    I wonder where the obsession with total female hairlessness started. Is it an American thing that’s spread? We seem to care more about body hair than the rest of the world.

  • Spidey Sensitive

    I just realized that people must think i’m talking about ‘feminine’ odor. I just meant general BO due to sweat.

    I knew a girl in high school who had extensions (braids) that she would keep in her hair for months on months on months. She was a pretty girl but her boyfriend dumped her because he couldn’t stand the smell of her hair when she would lay on his chest. That’s when i started using Herbal Essences. The bees would follow me because i smelled like flowers but no man has ever complained about my hair smelling bad.

  • Floating on a cloud

    While I do agree that it’s a private event so let them be however I personally think a lot of uproar is behind the extreme culture of the Muslim faith.. Most woman are born into the religion and do not have much of a choice to comply with the strict rules.. I have no problem with personal choice meaning if you choose to enter into this religion with full knowledge of how the culture operates…however thats rarely the case .. The things these woman are subjected to its sickening to say the least…making them cover up is the least of the offensives … But on the other hand you have to respect religious views no matter how distorted they may appear

  • sunni_daze

    People just need something to complain about. This is their religion which they live by covered all the way up, no contact with males that aren’t husband, son or family. People just need to worry about their own dirty dishes.

  • Liah

  • Spidey Sensitive

    Europe is super sensitive right now as they have been through a lot of terrorist attacks in recent years. The climate here with Trump as the nominee doesn’t seem much better. If we could all just mind our own business life would be better for everyone.

    France IS in an uproar. I was living there when they tried to ban the hijab several years ago. I think the ban passed, if I recall, but was later repealed. They are very opposed to immigration from the Middle East and Africa. The average French person wants out of the EU and supports Marie Le Pen.
    What is being “far right” to you? Wanting to protect your country’s heritage? Then all Frenchies are… Hell, every European I met was proud of their particular country and had no qualms telling you why everywhere was shit.

  • Pillow Justice

    If they want to live by the rule of being completely covered, so be it. They’ll just have to stay out of public pools and get their own! There’s something else here: regular clothing is made differently and tends to fray more easily. Thus as it falls apart, the fibers can clog the pool filters. However, I dont see this being resolved as it’s surprising that the men would let their women swim with “whores and tramps” [with all their skin showing.] This story has another underling basis: the people of France have a very open mind about nudity and are upset about the inequality of the Muslim women.

  • God is working on me!

    That’s what I was going to say, if it is by choice then don’t go that day. Let them have their day evening wear party. One day won’t kill us.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    That sounds weak.
    I’m glad that everyone doesn’t subscribe to that type of thought process. I have friends who practice one of the 3 Abrahamic Religions, and none of them are uncomfortable following their traditions/cultures.

    Take care.
