YMCA Offers Women-Only Swim Hours For Muslim Women

CaliforniaDefender

The term, "Separate but Equal" has been used in the past and presently by apartheid regimes who wish to maintain an elite class while ensuring the the larger population has limited access to resourses. As such separtae but equal has a bad wrap.

But the essence of the idea truely does apply to this situation, where any small group have an equal right to separate themselves for whatever purpose.

YMCA Offers Women-Only Swim Hours For Muslim Women

stare12juarez, you are missing my point. Take it out if the realm of religion or nationality. What would be wrong with swimming hours for women only! christian women, budhist women, jewish women muslim women or athiest women. Women form Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia or America? There are modest women of all kinds who who prefer to swim in a all female enviroment. What is so wrong with that? Should we force our ideas of openess on ecveryone?

California Defender. I do not see how a couple of hours for women only in a swimming pool, which is otherwise open to all, is equated a raciest eatery or a misogynistic elitist drinking hole?

Superior Court Judge Candidate Has 'Sincere' Doubts About Obama's Citizenship

Where did Mr. Kreep hear that there was a "Zulu ceremony" performed at the presidents birth?

This ia a typical error of mioptic view of the world shared by many.. I would remind Mr. Kreep that the predominant African tribe in Kenya is the Masai. To be a "Zulu" ceremony it would have been 2000 miles to the south in Kwazulu South Africa. That is approximately the distance between San Diego and Quezaltenango Guatemala! Get the difference?

Last time I checked the world population was about equally divided in numbers between men and women. Many women, regardless of religion may prefer a female only time slot to swim or use the facility.
It would be unfair if the rule was exclusively for muslim women. Other women who choose to swim in bikinis or whatever their culture allows MUST also be admitted at the same time, then I think it will be a fair rule.

First Gay Marriage Proposal on Military Base at Camp Pendleton

Missionaccomplished I bet you would not like the government to regulate who you fall in love with since this is your "privacy" issue, and you will shout to the four winds if they tried.
and JeanMarc. if the government encourages families by offering married couples tax breaks, to promote stable long term environments for our children, should they not take back the breaks when over 50% of heterosexual marriages end in divorce?
