Might occasionally be true, but religion (in this case Catholic moralism) is also what forbids topless for all women including pre-teen girls and, generally speaking, it is mostly â occidental – men who prevent women from sunbathing without a top.In both cases what emerges is an urge to control womenâs bodies and to frame them into decrees or, at the very least, social laws.
Someone might argue that Muslim women are forced to wear a burkini by their oppressive husbands and their equally oppressive religion.A few weeks ago David Lisnard, mayor of Cannes, signed a decree that forbids to wear a burkini on the public beaches.The decree was soon issued by numerous other mayors of the nearby cities on the CÃ´te dâAzur.Twitter exploded and #burkini almost became the official hashtag of this summer.Everyone had an opinion: naturally a lot of people accused Lisnard, and France in general, of being racist and discriminating.Surrendering in this way not only the freedom to cover/uncover their bodies just as they please, but also the freedom of choosing where to spend their holidays! via Giphy And next time you see a woman in a burkini, remember she might as well not be wearing it because she is forced to do so: she could be a Muslim woman who has voluntarily decided to obey the Islamic precepts, or a Catholic, Buddhist, Atheist, Rastafarian woman who has decided she is sick to death of the occidental fashion with its rude remarks.
We are so amazed by the fact that they havenât already done soâ¦.
Muslim women â some of them â use it to go to the beach as their religion forbids them to expose almost any part of their body.
Of course the decree didnât go silent, it quickly turned into a media matter and, consequently, into social media matter.
