KANAB, Utah, June 8 (UPI) -- The southern Utah city of Kanab has banned bikinis and other revealing gear at a city pool to earn a "G-rating," residents say.

Kanab resident Linda Osborn said by banning bikinis, cutoffs and Speedos from the new city pool, area officials were building from their 2006 passage of a natural-family resolution, which defined what a real family should be, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Sunday.

That's pretty decent of them, in my opinion. I've always been a believer in covering up, though. I hope tankinis are not on the list though...

OMG!
What a real family should be?!?!
Is it so outrageous to see a woman in a bikini or men in speedos? I'm glad we don't have such restrictions in Germany. Wearing a bikini is not about showing what you got but of having something on when you go swimming.

We have so many beaches where you don't need to where anything at all. IMHO I don't go to nude beaches b/c I like to wear normal bikinis but it's okay for the people who like it.

And what's that about normal families? Aren't kids supposed to know that there's something under the clothes? I guess they might see you naked at home when you take a shower, or not?! By trying to prevent everything kids and teens get more and more curious and the risk of them doing someting "outrageous" is bigger than to show them what might happen.

Sorry, but I cannot understand that.

There is so much wrong with this country, I don't want to start.

Banning bikinis for a G rated family environment? Pathetic and hypocritical.

Im a person who would wear one just 'because'. Its a free country. As far as speedos, I could agree with banning them. Actually, Fredericks made swimsuits (for women) that are in a sense, 'see thru'. The sun can still get in so you get an even tan without those 'bikini lines', but eyes cant.

I am on the conservative side politically, but banning bikinis is going overboard to keep decency. If bikinis offend somebody, then they should stay away from them, and from places where people wear them.

I know I'm not with the popular opinion on this by a long shot... but I just don't like bikinis.

Bikinis? Ridiculous.

I definitely see the merits of banning speedos on chubby guys however.

Well - the community pool I go to does not allow thongs and I am in a large metropolitan city.

If you know where Kanab is, it begins to make sense. It is very close to Colorado City, AZ and Hildale, UT and if you don't know what those cities mean, Google is your friend.
