Today’s Lesson: How not to write about a Muslim woman’s veil. Ever. Especially if you’re a white man with a fancy camera.
The writer Sebastian Farmborough is an “English photographer with a passion for travel and cross-cultural communication. He uses pictures to express what words cannot.” He also knows how to make you cringe. And wince. And feel nauseous.
An excerpt from this bile-worthy piece:

With the naked beaches of Barcelona a not too distant memory, I headed down to the Arabian Gulf for a dip. There, I became mystified by something black and obscure out at sea. It looked like a huge jellyfish. Then, as it approached closer, I realised that it was in fact a woman.

How does one set an e-post on fire.
