    Yeah but there are social norms as to what's appropriate to wear and what's not. A bikini is not.
    In Albania it's more than appropriate:

    I guess so but I don't think there should be. Wear what ever floats your boat

    What's funny is both the male and female swimmers would have been showing more of their legs than this, some people just want to complain about something

    Well it is far too short to wear on daytime television. Children watch this.

    But this is just my opinion.
    Yes I can see how children realising human beings have upper legs is going to permanently damage their psyches.


    Truth be told I don't know what the fuss is, almost every child has seen their own mothers in more revealing outfits (swimsuits and so forth).

    Ok I'll agree to disagree with this.

    I thought women having legs was established by Susanna Reid on breakfast tv. Seriously, what a fuss about nothing.

    Some people have disagreed with the BBC Olympic swimming commentator, Helen Skelton, over her choice of clothing.

    Clearly the ultra conservatives are at it again, not pleased if they see even the ankle of a woman on TV. Of cause the men are perfectly fine with wearing what ever they want (**** I sound like a feminist).

    That is absolutely vile. Showing her legs off i n public like that - and there were children watching. Disgraceful.

    What's the problem with it? I think she's beautiful and in any case complaining about this doesn't make any sense considering that most swimmers will be showing more leg than this.

    The children were watching women in swimming costumes that revealed their entire legs. The presenter was wearing more than the athletes, yet you complain about the presenter.

    Are you saying children should not watch swimming competitions, or do you complain about what other people do on overzealous religious grounds a lot (even though the subject of the complaint does not share your religious beliefs) or do you just lack an ability to think logically?
