Muslim ‘girls only’ swimming sessions ripple Danish waters

Hundreds of young Muslim girls have flocked to swimming lessons in Copenhagen’s immigrant-heavy Tingbjerg district after Hovedstadens Svømmeklub (Capital City Swimming Club) introduced segregated swimming sessions.

While the swimming club has hailed the move as a “recipe for integration”, politicians and commentators have criticised the concept as being against Danish values.

The girl-only sessions, which also take place with windows and doors to the swimming hall blacked out, were set up in response to religious and cultural requirements put forward by parents, reports Berlingske.

Leave it to a leftist to describe sharia law as “integration”

    Refusing to compromise would probably lead to Muslims leaving the country.

      Just cease giving them benefits and most will depart.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        They’re probably providing the stupid lessons for free, too.

      Even- Orwell would not believe this . It is crazy.

    I am a Protestant .
    The sight of baby girls and boys swimming in a pool does not affect me in a sexual way.
    I guess –it is just a Catholic and Muslim thing.

    • mobuyus

      Don’t kid yourself it’s a protestant thing too.

      • Shebel

        You just don’t like us. You are a Racist!

    • Kathy Prendergast

      What do Catholics have to do with it?

    Another victory for Western feminism, The Toronto Star must be elated.

  • WTF

    Yes but what bathroom do they use? I’m confused :-/

  • Scotch_Pine

    So will they cordon off the lakes and beaches too, after they learn how to swim? And remember the fatwa against the ocean because it’s male, they won’t be swimming there.

    This segregated swim class is here in Toronto and it was a disaster because the Muslims dictated that the Life Guard had to be a women but the Master-Race didn’t stop there.
    The muslims demanded that the non-muslim Life Guard cover-up their body to not offend the Niqab/Hijab clad mothers. But when I was a Life Guard that was trained in survival as well, we learn to remove most of our clothes to conserve our energy while treading water for 15 minute .
    The City Of Toronto’s own Rules make it clear that you can’t not wear restrictive clothing that may endanger the lives of drowning victims during any position as a Life Guard on duty or in the pool area .
    Somehow all the rules that we agreed with were thrown out the door for muslims because the young women was at risk for losing her job if she didn’t breaks the Rules for safety and covered her body which made it pointless to try and swim to save someone.

    It’s not a Human Right to swim in Ontario , but the islamic supremacy fascists not only wanted to occupy a Public Pool for a Muslim-Only day but they demand that a non-muslim Life Guard obey shariah codes to cover them self.

    I can assure you that If someone did drown we would see the City blame the Life Guard for not refusing to obey the rules. This is the World we live in when it comes to Muslims or as we see with high crimes areas the Black community.

    The Black activists cried racism over the Police that would patrol their areas, so the Police pulled out of Black welfare areas and the crimes shot up plus the homicides. THEN another group of Blacks cried that the Police were racists for NOT enough patrols in their area.

    Don’t be fooled, if a muslim girl died in that pool the mother would file a Lawsuit . So maybe the City and Corporations cave to muslims because they look at which Lawsuit will be cheaper because they about Jihad Lawfare to get money so they don’t have to work for it.

    • pop

      But, gang rape Mon Muslims in the pool is ok.

    • Petrilia

      Most of Toronto agrees with you.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      So is the swimming class still going on, with the female lifeguard having to wear god only knows what? Are these burka-wearing hags actually offended at the sight of another woman wearing a simple one-piece Speedo?

      I say let them drown.

      • Gary

        In the end the Life Guard was forced to cover up , sadly no female muslims knew how to swim to get the Bronze Medallion and Royal Life Saving Society’s awards as I had to do.
        Ironically though , back in the 1970’s I was 14 when I got those awards but too young to get a job during the Summer of a Learn to Swim Winter program. When I was 16 the nepotism was so bad at City Hall and the Parks and Rec in Toronto I had no connections to get a summer job at the Beach’s along Toronto’s shoreline or at the Public out door Pools .
        The person that Certified me was the spouse of a Politicians at City Hall and couldn’t even swim them self so they sat near the pool fully dressed to watch us go through the Tests . I mention this because the same White people that benefited from nepotism pumped out children that are now crusaders at City Hall to stop racism as if they are oh so pure .

        When I go to those Public pools by the beach I still haven’t seen any Black Life Guards yet even during the last 8 years . Please don’t tell me that Blacks can’t swim because Community Centre’s still have pools for Winter swim classes in Government housing areas.
        My concern though is that Niqab Clad Life Guard will start to show up at these Public pools where children will drown from neglect as infidels or because the Niqab makes it near impossible to swim in .

          I think it’s an outrage that the lifeguard was forced to cover up at the risk of losing her job. This is the kind of thing the Human Rights Commission is supposed to be for. What is equally bizarre to me is why Muslims would insist on a woman covering up EVEN WHEN there are only women there! I thought the hijab was supposed to just be about modesty and keeping men from being sexually attracted to them. Are they that disgusted by the body that they don’t even want other women to see it? I’ve read that this is also related to the problem of Muslims not showering before they go swimming in public pools in Europe, because they don’t want to use the communal showers. In many European countries people are very relaxed about nudity so they really don’t know how to deal with this prudery.

          Re. your comment about black people and swimming, I live in Vancouver and one of our most famous city residents of the past was a black man named Joe Fortes who lived here over 100 years ago; he was an excellent swimmer and he taught children – both boys and girls – to swim at the beach for many years. One of our public library branches is named after him. At the time very few black people lived here and some parents had to overcome prejudice before they allowed their children to attend his swimming classes, but they accepted that swimming was an essential skill in Vancouver where children used to spend the whole summer playing on the beaches.

            This issue about the sharia had puzzled me too because the female life guard wasn’t a muslim and the young girls at the swim didn’t care.
            But it was safer for Barbara Hall to bow to mekkah 5 times a day than to stand up for the Charter Of Rights for Canadians to be free FROM religion or to practise it.

  • Shebel

    It is a real shame.
    These new Canadians reject our Beliefs and Culture—-
    And if We get pissed OFF and say something—then we are guilty of a HATE crime.

    Patriotism has now become HATE crime.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    All these accommodations to Muslim hysteria about sex just contributes to the twisted attitudes of Muslim boys and men, and leads them to sexually harass and assault women and children in public swimming pools and beaches because they can’t deal with the sight of uncovered female flesh. And what is the point of a Muslim girl learning to swim, if she always has to hide herself from boys and men? Or are they going to be demanding segregated beaches and swimming tournaments next?

  • John

    How can the promotion of gender and religious apartheid be called ‘integration’.

    That’s the opposite of what integration means.
