Tim F. enjoys accompanying his young daughter to different activities and has been welcomed everywhere…until now. Apparently, men are no longer allowed to be at the public swimming pool during swimming lessons, because Muslim women are there.
Voice of Europe (h/t MarvinW) The father has now been excluded from children’s swimming ‘out of consideration for Muslim women’.
In a voicemail message from an official, Svantje K., it was explained to Tim that he was not welcome during the lessons: “I wanted to let you know: There are Muslim women here. That’s why it would be good if your wife came, instead of you. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to come in (…) I hope for your understanding.”
Because of this, taking his daughter for swimming lessons is no longer possible.
