This, the forceful stripping of a Muslim woman by four fully clothed men embodies the pedagogy of cruelty I referred to here. The non white body as a site of discipline and forceful compliance. The burkini, a piece of beachwear that the white European patriarchy has deemed inappropriate because, in a paradoxical moment of unintentional irony, “it forces Muslim women to be submissive to men” (nobody said that patriarchal bullshit has to be ideologically consistent, right?). In the name of “liberating” Muslim women from their supposed “submission”, four men force the beachgoer to strip, submitting to their authority as agents of the State. Mandatory, non consensual CMNF scenarios in a breath taking moment of sexual assault by the State. It is not a coincidence that many of these porn tropes also draw inspiration from the submission of veiled women. The State, ultimately, as the executing arm of the white patriarchy that demands complete compliance and availability of our bodies.
