Strange is the rage reserved by so many feminist ladies for the few girls wearing the hijab. They have begged poor president Chirac…to crack down on them in the name of the Law. Meanwhile, the prostituted female body is everywhere. The most humiliating pornography is universally sold. Advice on sexually exposing bodies lavishes teen magazines day in and day out.
A single explanation: a girl must show what she’s got to sell. She’s got to show her goods. She’s got to indicate that, henceforth, the circulation of women abides by the generalized model, and not by restricted exchange. Too bad for bearded fathers and elder brothers! Long live the planetary market! The generalized model is the top fashion model.
It used to be taken for granted that an intangible female right is to only have to get undressed in from of the person of her choosing. But no. it is vital to hint at undressing at every instant. Whoever covers up what she puts on the market is not a loyal merchant. Let’s argue the following, then, a pretty strange point: the law on the hijab is a pure capitalist law. It order femininity to be exposed. In other words, having the female body circulate according to the market paradigm is obligatory.
