Breast Defense Against Extremists

(Copenhagen, Denmark) Danish People's Party spokesman, Peter Skaarup, has proposed that extremists would be less likely to attempt entering Denmark if they had to look at naked women's breasts.
According to Skaarup, a documentary film about Denmark that will be shown as part of an upcoming immigration test for foreigners needs to have a pair of breasts in it, to intimidate any extremists from attempting to enter the tiny Scandinavian country.[…]

This, he said, is mainly relevant for immigrants coming from fundamentalist societies where women are oppressed and are not allowed to display their sexuality or even their hair.
In the war against religious extremists, I suggest that all strategies are worth evaluating. Even so, I'd guess that showing breasts wouldn't be effective.

[Add.] Another source quotes Skaarup saying,
“A similar documentary in Holland shows bare breasts, and I think we should follow their example, Skaarup told Berlingske Tidende newspaper.

“It is of course a bit tongue-in-cheek, but there is an element of seriousness to it too: by including topless bathing in a documentary about Denmark, we can highlight our open-mindedness and our rights to dress – or undress – as we please.”
My brow remains furrowed.
