Should teenage girls be allowed to wear bikinis on field trips involving swimming?
in General

By Rendersen22Rendersen22 5 Pts
I know some people may feel that bikinis are too revealing, but I do not feel it is any concern as it is just a swimsuit.  I do not see why it should not be allowed.

    They should be free to either wear bikinis or not to wear them, as with anything else. I will also say this: if you have never swam in a sea, a lake or a river nude, then you have not lived.

    In Nordic cultures it is not too uncommon for men and women, even when complete strangers, to be in the same sauna rooms totally nude. People there are not as ashamed of their bodies as in cultures more puritan in this regard, and no issues arise. Japanese also have a very relaxed relationship with public nudity, albeit there are some boundaries there you are not to cross, such as advertise your nudity on a big scale.

  • I think they can wear bikinis if they choose to. I agree with @Rendersen22 that it’s just a swimsuit. Revealing? Much the opposite. A bikini covers the body parts that a girl would not want to reveal.

    I believe that teenage girls should have the freedom to choose whatever they want to wear on their bodies. However, I can see why people may believe that they shouldn't. They believe that by wearing bikinis, teenage girls are attracting negative attention to themselves, making them fall prey to sexual predators more easily. I can see why this is a concern - I have heard so many cases of women being blamed for their outfit choices after they are sexually harassed. However, I still believe that there is nothing wrong with a woman wearing a bikini especially in a situation where it is appropriate to do so (eg. swimming) and that a fear of being sexualised should not prevent them from wearing what makes them feel comfortable. However, these teenage girls should keep in mind the possible dangers when wearing such types of clothing and take precautionary measures if necessary (going in a group etc).
  • In India or for the matter of fact where I live a teenage girl wearing bikini is frowned upon. But I don't see why we can't wear it. It should be the girls choice entirely. And when you go to swim you can't really expect people to wear shirt and full pants. Though here you will attract a lot of attention but still its up to you.

    I've never heard of that ever being an issue at least not in the US.  

    Is this an issue you have come across?  Is it a cultural or religious camp thing?
  • @all4actt
    Actually in many places you will be frowned upon if you wear a bikini. The people who would say the most amount of s*** will be the same ones who wouldn't wear a bra inside their blouse or can't wear a sari properly or their sari would continue to slip but they will take no notice of that. This is what happens at least in India.
