do you ever see a picture of your internet friend for the first time and you just kinda think
it appears i have accidentally befriended a beauty goddess.
A YMCA in St. Paul, Minnesota is now offering swim practice once a week to the community’s Muslim Somali girls, offering the girls a safe environment to learn how to swim while accounting for their concerns about modesty.
While Minnesota’s newspaper noted that this is an important and much-needed program for the community, Fox News saw the story as an opportunity to broadcast their signature brand of fearmongering Islamophobia.
Fox’s Heather Nauert:
Well the minority becoming the majority at one community pool.
Sharia law is now changing everything.
A YMCA in Minneapolis-St. Paul is starting a swim group for Muslim girls but special considerations have to be made to keep with their religious beliefs. Now this means during the one-hour class, the pool is being shut down, the men’s locker room is being locked, and female lifeguards are being brought in. Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.
Fox News Report: People are being considerate. All hell hath broken loose.
Oh no, how dare a country that boasts religious freedom actually take steps to help honor people’s religious practices? Rude.
So what? You can have classes especially for little old biddies, and classes only for people with small children but you can’t host a class where girls can come to swim in a way that doesn’t breach the protocols of their religion? You’re the ones that won’t let people get married because it infringes on /your/ religion. Omg shut the fuck up Fox News!!!!
