Let’s Prevent Misunderstandings

Germany’s Die Welt is reporting that a school in Bavaria has sent a letter to parents warning them that their daughters should dress modestly, due to the close proximity of Muslim migrants housed in the school’s gym. “Modest clothing should be adhered to, in order to avoid discrepancies. Revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings.”

The school gardens and buildings have been placed off-limits to the migrants, and the number of teachers on duty has been increased. But still the possibility of misunderstandings persists. A local politician confirmed that

When Muslim teenage boys go to open air swimming pools, they are overwhelmed when they see girls in bikinis,” he said.

“These boys, who come from a culture where for women it is frowned upon to show naked skin, follow girls and bother them without realizing. Obviously this is concerning for us.

Let’s hope someome can advise the recent arrivals that importuning schoolchildren is frowned upon in their host country, so it will not be the responsibility of the girls to avoid misunderstandings.
