Did I SAY anything about them asking people to stay out of public places? NO.
How about the wonderful Christians that don't want to support their employees with womens' rights issues?
I mentioned RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS, not staying out of public places. Do you actually know how to read?

Lol... so it's the public pool's fault that this guy didn't understand what "Females Only" means?

And rather than pick a class that's not "Females Only," he picks a class that is "Females Only" and then complains that he can't get into the "Females Only" class?

Sounds like the father is being denied his own rights and should be able to complain (or perhaps sue) about it.

I wonder if it could be because this thread is talking about a father being excluded from a public place to see his daughter swim. Ya think???? Effing Muslims coming to countries and trying to force their ways on others.

The guy thought that the class was for females. He did not realize that only females were allowed to watch the meets or whatever they are called. That is a normal thing to have classes for males or females, but when they have swim meets everyone can attend.

Growing up we often had classes that were "female only" long before it would be a "muslim thing". I don't see a problem with it. If the father wants her to be in a co-ed class then he should sign her up for it.

They didn't say he couldn't attend because it was "females only" the very first part of the article says it was "religious reasons". Religion doesn't belong in public swimming classes.


A Toronto area father is upset after being locked out of his daughter’s swim class for what he was told are “religious reasons,” according to the Toronto Sun.

Some only consider the ME Islam, the joke is on them.
I seriously doubt feminist progressive rule and an Islamic state would be compatible.
