Summary: 

Petitions to overturn the burkini ban call it a breach of human rights, but I feel sorry for French officials, who’ve been unfairly cast as the bad guys. It’s not the burkini ban that’s barring Muslim women from the beach – it’s the rhetoric that without it, they will be fair game for unwanted attention – like unwrapped sweets, circled by flies.
