Funny, or a sign of increased intolerance?

Just received the below picture via e-mail, apparently it is going around. It might be just an innocent, funny picture. Then again, it might be a sign of increase intolerance whereby pictures such as this are used to inflame differences between 'us' and 'them'. To note, the picture is called "C'est romantique", pointing to a Christian Maronite background. As always: the reader is the judge...


Picture : C'est Romantique!

this is ridiculous!! if it's in lebanon, then how wrong of someone to post it on the internet, there's no more privacy, i mean that's too extreme, or would it be better if a lady swam absolutely naked in the river. there's no reaching middle grounds. the lebanese women (and men) either cover themselves from head to toe or bare it all.
