To some, the idea that women who are almost fully covered being more offensive on the eye than a heavyset man in Speedos doesn't quite add up.
The mini furore follows the release of pictures showing a woman being demanded to remove a burkini by armed police, which sparked a big reaction from both Muslims and non-Muslims.
Fat man in speedo = moral— WhoopDiFrigginDoo (@WholeLottaJulie) August 24, 2016
Woman not exposing her skin = immoral?
French law = ridiculous & cruel. #BurkiniBan https://t.co/YCcTj4c0uq
Clearly, if there are now "Burkini Talks," there must also be a "Speedo Summit." https://t.co/QarSD7qUux— Alex Wagner (@alexwagner) August 24, 2016
A 'wear what you want' beach party protest outside of the French embassy has even been organised.
Personally, I'm not on board. Not because I'm a guy or wear Speedos (cold turkied the bad boys when I was seven). I get why people don't like them, but that's exactly why I like them. What would our beaches be without fat, Speedos-sporting bastards making you feel ill? They're our best export in Britain after One Direction.
Plus, the trunks are often required for entry into a public pool for apparent hygiene reasons.
Long live the Speedo. Long live Ray Winstone.
