Veiled Muslim women, even though you are a visible and participating presence in our community, even though when I go to my local supermarket you are shopping every single time, regardless of your age, even though anyone who has spent more than two hours in Amsterdam has come across one of you, even though our local politicians like Geert Wilders have built their entire political careers on the supposed evils of your oppression, it seems you do no laundry and your purchasing power is not desired by Robijn. As per this new advertising campaign in the Metro Amsterdam newspaper, you have no representation. You simply do not exist.

(Sorry for bad photo quality, but my scanner is temporary out of order).

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.
