Burkini Brain Short Circuit

I just had a deep, physical reaction to another article about the burkini ban in France. It felt like a heartburn eruption in my middle and exploding out of my face. I keep checking to see if it is real. France has actually, really, truly, officially banned the burkini. ┬áThis is totally insane. It is insane and childish and illogical and mental and mad. It is not a joke. Women are being FINED for wearing burkinis. Women are being asked to take them off. Men are paying women’s fines in court.

People in France find the burkini offensive. People in France think that women should be forced to not wear  burkinis. My brain cannot even start to compute. And not only is it offensive to French authorities (and other paranoid, racist, Islamophobes) that some women should cover up in this way, it is now also illegal.

My brain hurts too much to even try and take this thought further. What in the name of actual fuckery are they busy doing?

Edit: It is a man’s war, fought with a hidden enemy, on women’s bodies.

    It would be nice if you would have writted something about the incidents on the Promenade in Nice which caused these deep deivisions instead of just concentrating on this thing on the beach.
    By the way Soudi Arabia has banned the bikini for years and years and years, but somehow when people point this out then they are paranoid, racist, Islamophobes.

    am,iright?

  2. Dear Jen, I am only not trashing your comment for the complete junk it is so that the world can see how moronic it is to make the kind of links you do. I have no idea where you live, or who you are, but unless you are wanting to wear a bikini in Saudi Arabia, for which I will give you all the support you need, and defend your right to do so, I want to remind you that we are talking about women choosing to wear burkinis in France, where it is banned.

    so why not make the fight also for the bikinio in soaudi arabia? why not point out the injusticves against womxn in the arab muslim world?n but oh no france is the sole enemy./ the hypocisy drive me madd

  4. Nope, sorry Jen, I am going to have to trash you after all. I am not talking about Saudi Arabia. I am talking about France. Write your own piece on Saudi Arabia and women’s rights there.
