With Australia now on high terror alert, some politicians have called for a ban on women wearing bikinis in public.
Leading the campaign to ban the bikini is Coalition Senator Cory Bernardi.
Senator Bernardi – who has long highlighted the link between bikinis and alcohol fuelled violence – says he finds the sight of young Australian women in bikinis “morally abhorrent” and “utterly terrifying”.
“These people are supposedly wearing bikinis for cultural reasons. But most decent thinking people regard bikinis as not right and totally unAustralian.”
Senator Bernardi has also questioned why women in bikinis would leave their bodies mostly – but not totally – uncovered.
“What are they hiding?” he asked.
Jacqui Lambie joins call to ban the bikini
Palmer United Party Senator Jacqui Lambie has added her voice to the debate, sharing images on her Facebook page of bikini-clad women firing machine guns.
“I agree whole-heartedly with Senator Cory Bernardi’s comments – and call for an immediate and complete ban on the wearing of bikinis in public,” said Senator Lambie.
“The bikinis are obviously designed by men who have an obsessive need to have extreme control and power over women.”
“As groups like Bikini Kill show, disciples of bikinis pose a serious threat to society that cannot be ignored.”
