Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
“Based on the newest French initiative, I propose a new way to eliminate oppression of the women in our civilized society. Oppressed women shall be fined. There must be zero tolerance for all forms of women’s oppression. Oppressed women must absolutely stop being oppressed or they shall be banned from all public places including beaches, schools, and government institutions. Those who do not share our secular Christian values and continue to be oppressed must live in a ghetto so that they do not spoil the happiness and liberty of our society.”

I couldn’t be happier Agrudzinsky wrote this because it condenses and clarifies the issue in the best possible way.
The burkini matter is one of those cases where some well intentioned people propose solutions that aren’t real solutions. Sometimes they even do it eloquently as was the case with The Burkini of Bernarda Alba. Much of what Lozano says is true, but liberation by force is, at its heart, a ridiculous idea.
