Young male asylum seekers have turned Sweden's public swimming pools into ordeals of rape and sexual assault.
Swedish politicians seem convinced that some education on "equality" will change the ways of men, who, since childhood, have been taught that it is the responsibility of women not to arouse them -- and therefore the woman's fault if the man feels like raping her.
More and more Swedes are now avoiding public pools altogether.
Staff at Malmö's Hylliebadet family adventure pool were given strict instructions not to report certain things, and above all, never to mention the ethnicity or religion of those who cause problems at the pool.
"What the Afghans are doing is not wrong in Afghanistan, so your rules are completely alien to them. ... If you want to stop Afghans from molesting Swedish girls, you need to be tough on them. Making them take classes on equality and how to treat women is pointless. The first time they behave badly, they should be given a warning, and the second time you should deport them from Sweden." — Mr. Azizi, manager of a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan
Men and women, in a Swedish tradition, have swum together in public pools for over 100 years. Many people are now wondering if we will be forced to give up this practice -- because young male asylum seekers have turned public swimming pools into ordeals of rape and sexual assault.
Mixed bathing in Sweden started in the small southern fishing village of Mölle. Around 1890, the "Sin of Mölle" gained notoriety. Men and women were swimming together! Out in the open and shamelessly flaunting their striped bathing attire. It was a sensation that echoed all over Europe, and people came from everywhere to partake in the exciting new activity. Danes poured in, and even the German Emperor Wilhelm II made his way to Mölle in July 1907.
It should come as surprise to no one that men from the Middle East and North Africa have quite a different view of women than Swedish men do. The only mystery is why Swedish politicians have got it in their heads that everyone who sets foot on Swedish soil will immediately embrace our values, our view of women and our traditions.
Now that it is finally beginning to dawn on them that many Afghan, Somali, Iraqi and Syrian men (the largest immigrant groups coming to Sweden now) think that women who run around scantily clad are fair game, the politicians are dumbfounded. Of course, they cannot admit that this -- to Swedes -- completely alien view of women has anything to do with Islam, because then they would become victims of their own claim that everyone who criticizes Islam is an "Islamophobe."
