Unclear On the Concept

Celebrate Segregate diversity in Sweden!

I see that in the midst of unprecedented immigration from poor Moslem societies, assimilation in Sweden is continuing apace:

For decades, Swedish city swimming pools have operated mixed-gender pools, but by adding women-only hours, officials are hoping to accommodate the country's growing Muslim population.

And that is raising a much larger issue for Sweden. Should the native population adjust to immigrant groups' different lifestyles by accommodating women-only swimming and the like, thus providing access to Muslim newcomers who would otherwise not feel comfortable in gender-equal conditions? Or does the implementation of such segregation, however well intended, ultimately undermine the country's hard-earned traditions of gender equality.

How is this a question? Yes, the decisions undermine the country's gender equality. Give them swimming and soon the demands for more segregation will multiply.

If I may be so bold, if Moslem immigrants don't like the way Sweden runs their country, perhaps Sweden isn't the ideal destination.

They might try Sudan for a more culturally acceptable destination, for example.

But what the heck. You know the saying, "when in Rome, do as the Romans do make the Romans do as you do."

UPDATE: But will moving to Spain actually be an improvement? After all, the jihadis claim Spain as part of the caliphate in their Mohammad version of the Brezhnev Doctrine.

UPDATE: And it is no better when government here does this for religious reasons.

If religious groups don't like integrated pools, they can build their own private pools and set their own membership and operation rules.
