French Woman's Duty… Hmm

"

It is a French woman's duty to wear a bikini on a beach, says the former minister for families, Nadine Morano.

"When you choose to come to a country of secular laws like France, you have an obligation to respect our culture and the liberty of women. Or you go somewhere else," Morano wrote on her Facebook page.

Morano said that she had witnessed the incident at an unnamed French resort.

"The man got into his swimming trunks, showing off his well-made body, while she sat quietly on the sand dressed from head to toe," she wrote. "He went off alone towards the sea. Delighted to be having a swim, he waved to his submissive companion as she sat entirely surrounded by people in swimsuits.

"He had the right to strip off and swim, She didn't. To see that in the country which invented human rights was exasperating!"

DUTY to wear a bikini... DUTY? Really? Horrible choice of words there.

Here is the bit that I do agree with: "When you choose to come to a country of secular laws like France, you have an obligation to respect our culture and the liberty of women. Or you go somewhere else," . Right on. 100% correct.

For the rest of Morano's blabbering:

How can moron Morano be so sure that the woman sitting on the beach was not doing it out of choice? It could be her CHOICE to not go for a swim. It could be her choice to wear the headscarf and tunic. Could be her choice to sit quietly. How did Morano come to the conclusion that this woman was FORCED into sitting quietly?!

"He had the right to strip off and swim, She didn't. To see that in the country which invented human rights was exasperating!"

Please note:

  • Morano hasn't mentioned that she knew the female personally.
  • The article or the facebook post does not mention that Morano had investigated the family to get the full story.

From the above, it can be logically deduced that Morano has simply made a biased assumption. The statement could very well be - He has the right to strip off and swim. He did. She has the right to strip off and swim, and it may be that she opted NOT to exercise the right.

Freedom is not only DOING what you want to. It is also NOT DOING what you DON'T want to (Limited to legal compliance, of course. Does not include actions such as - Not paying tax because you don't want to pay tax OR Killing someone because you want to kill someone).
