    Why not just wear clothes that arent illegal? I find your belief that you have the right to dictate what people wear is a joke. Since when did you set yourself up as the fashion police? Keep on being progressive by banning things.
    Oh, so muslim countries can ban clothes but we cant? kettle = black

    Again, your the one who brought it up - not me.

    Its progressive to want to rid the world or remove something from society, which I deem to be a regressive stone age garment that enslaves women. Dont see how anyone (other than aMuslim) cant see that?

    Thats because you dont see a lot. I'm quite happy people should not be discriminated against and can wear what they want. Your answer is to ban things. If it doesnt affect me and it isnt illegal them im not bothered. I find people who wear pyjamas in supermarkets a bit odd, but it doesnt affect me. Cant really see why you are so insecure that you need to dictate what people can wear. Keep pushing the cause though. Do you live in a muslim area? When was the last time you sat next to someone wearing a Burka?

    At one point slavery was legal, and now it is banned and is illegal - do you oppose the banning this as you believe banning isnt progressive?

    I like to see peoples faces. it is our culture too. You assimilate to the culture in which you live or have moved to. Dont like it? Move..

    Thats why i have no problem with the Hijab for example as it doesnt cover your face. - its not a religious thing with me - its a cultural.

    Why do you find that so hard to understand?

    Erm, please don't confuse me though for someone who hates muslims though, I thought this post was gonna be about how The Swiss are banning muslims or something but this new rule means bringing more people together.

    Am I the only person here to be concerned that there is now a situation where the state has more say over how children are bought up than parents.

    There is a general malaise of Islam = bad on this thread so most seem to support these actions, but imagine a scenario in this country where the government decided all kids should go to scouts or guides and some parents objected on the grounds of the Christian basis of the scouting movement but we're overruled in court. Would the UK be deemed sane? That parents had no choice but to ensure their kids participated?

    Was it not a school run by the state? If so there is a simple solution home school or put them in a private school that will accommodate those beliefs.
    If it is not and it is a private school then the parents should abide by the school rules.

    If this was a science lesson would you support a push to make the lessons gender segregated?

    In your scenario the parents could also start their own group or whatever it called.

    The state will always have a huge say:

    Examples in the UK

    -your child must attend school (or some form offull time education) by law until 18 now I believe?
    -your child isn't allowed to go to a pub/bar/club until their 18
    -you're not allowed to starve your child
    - your child isn't allowed to drive until they're 17
    - you're child must not break the law
    - you can't use you're child as a punching bag
    - you can't feed your child bleach as punishment
    -you can't perform an excorcism" on your child


    What if parents think they should be allowed to go against these as: it's their child and if they want to do the opposite of these they can?

    Plus some parents don't know what's best for their children. I'm a strong believer in not allowing anybody who wants a child, to have one.

    Your example is silly - it is not the same as what the Swiss have done. The Swiss have stopped gender segregation - not forced religion on someone.

    And as the other user said if it were a maths, science, IT etc lesson would you say the same? Or do you support gender segregation?

    Nothing to do with unwanted children.

    Some people are just bad parents that let "perfect little jimmy", grow up to be a scummy yob who also will be a bad parent and bring up the same type of child.

    People who will obsviously make an awful parent should not be allowed to have children. You know the type of people I mean whether you want to admit it or not.

    But this isn't any of those. It is swimming. If a parent doesn't want their kids to do school swimming lessons fair dos. You may disagree but I object more to the compulsory nature of it. There are a gazzilion reasons kids don't do PE.

    Doesn't matter. The reason for this was specifically to stand against gender segregation which is not a reason not to do ANY lesson. If they had some sort of physical problem then fine but not because their parents demand gender segregation. If they don't liken the way Switzerland does things, they can leave - simple.

    And we wonder why levels of integration, tolerance and respect are so low.
