Now I've Seen Everything

The "Burkini"(video link) Just wow.

Billed as "liberating" by the newscaster. I'm not sure I agree with that.

I'm as modest as the next gal (trust me...I do NOT change into my swimsuit in front of others at the gym...I go into the bathroom to change) but this seems nuts. It's really just a wet suit but with that added religious craziness of a head cover.

I think a lot of young girls and women wear swimsuits that are way too revealing (not to mention unflattering) but I wouldn't go so far as to expect girls to cover up to this extent. I realize it's partly a religious thing, but I think it's nuts.

I heard Dennis Miller talking about this on the way to work this morning.

I thought it was a joke.

I'm still not convinced that it's not.

Geez, that's ridiculous.

I don't think it's a joke...the story is pretty old actually, from 2007. And considering all the other crap that goes on in the Muslim world of religion I believe it.
