Back then when I was writing about the dead bodies on European beaches I failed to make one connection that has become painfully clear today: the beach as the site where European white, heteronormative patriarchy inhabits our bodies both in life and in death. The site where the cis gender female body is meant to be seen under the conditions approved by the male gaze.

Don’t throw sand over my eyes. On the burkini ban and European cruelty — Medium

I wrote something about the burkini ban in European beaches and the forceful compliance with white supremacist patriarchy.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
