From twitter. story here


Comments on twitter were mostly wry acknowledgement the composure of the 'oppressed' woman. The only people who noted right off the possibility of kink were an Arab American women and a gay Arab European man.  I laughed at first and the woman is impressive but in the end her cold contempt is off-putting; her conservatism has a nasty edge.

Also on twitter I'm seeing some defense of muslim women in Germany, from German sexworkers. It makes sense if you ignore assumed simple definitions of the categories of liberal and conservative. Whores and nuns are conservative gender roles, but the woman on the left is holding her baby, and Femen is the liberalism of Hugh Hefner. Someone pointed out that the most important difference between Playboy and Hustler was that Flynt brought back shame to sex.
