The burkini ban, the burkini debate, or another episode of how men are trying to dictate what women should be wearing, call it whatever you want, but there’s one thing we can all agree on: this topic has been the centre of attention these past few days. To counter all the negativity, we’d like to shine some light on the celebrities who have been rocking their burkinis on the beach.
1. Lindsay Lohan
2. Alessandra Ambrosio
3. Jennifer Lopez
Jenifer Lopez looks like she’s having so much fun on the beach wearing her burkini, that she almost forgot that she’s actually an oppressed woman.
4. Chris Hemsworth
The burkini might be designed to mainly fit women, but thankfully we live in the 21st century which means that your gender shouldn’t hold you back from wearing clothing that wasn’t particularly designed for you.
5. Matthew McConaughey
In fact, David Beckham likes his burkini so much that he even got his sons hooked on it.
6. David Beckham
Bonus: Even Putin wears it
All jokes aside, the burkini ban is a serious issue. It’s an attack on all women’s right to decide what to wear and what they feel comfortable in for themselves. Showing these photos just emphasizes how absurd this ban is, since they’re banning a type of clothing that has been worn on the beaches for years. But all of a sudden, now that Muslim women are wearing it, it’s an attack on the democratic values. Dear politicians and columnists who support a law against the burkini: Stop hiding behind so-called feminist reasons, your islamophobia is showing.
