More of a wetsuit than a bikini, the “burqini” is designed for Muslim women who want to go swimming without getting stoned for being whores.
But these burqini girls won’t be getting (moderately) wet & wild in France where public pools have banned the bathing suit because of “hygiene rules.”
President Nicolas Sarkozy says he supports the ban, “I think they’re dirty, and I’m not too fond of the swimsuit either” (paraphrasing).
Carole, a French convert to Islam, has filed a lawsuit claiming religious discrimination after she was turned away this summer. However Mayor Alain Kelyor insists the ban “has nothing to do with Islam… that type of suit does not exist in the Koran.”
