    Re: Girls beat up Iran cleric over dress code

    Frankly, while I think they went about it the wrong way, I am secretly delighted at the girls' reaction. Who the feck does that old guy think he is - telling strangers that their dress is 'immodest'? Maybe if a few more bloody old bigots (of all religious persuasion) got their arses kicked from time to time, they might get a clue.

    But the CNN article was a bit misleading in a couple of ways.


    Iranian women can be subjected to harsh punishment for small infractions of the country's Islamic dress code.

    The (doctored) photo above shows women wearing the burqa (a total head to toe covering - with only a slit for the eyes), whereas Iranian women habitually wear the chador which is a sort of hooded cloak which is open at the front but may be pulled closed if the wearer wishes (which is generally done in public places).



    Iranian women are not required by law to wear chadors. Many women do so for several reasons, religious piety, cultural tradition and respectability. However, other women also fulfill the government requirements by wearing a combination of a headscarf and a long overcoat which conceals her arms and legs. The overcoat is known by a French word, manteau. Some women wearing manteaux would also wear them for religious reasons.

    I think that sums up the whole issue pretty clearly. The cleric blames the women for the reactions they inspire in him. He will not, however, take responsibility and avert his eyes. His reaction is their fault. He's just a whiny little coward. That's what misogynists are. Chicken@#$% small men who can't handle not being more powerful than women.

    Yes, but did you read the article. It said this happened in a "small" village, not in the city where women can get away with a little more. Not to mention, the girls were "asked" to cover themselves up. It's ridiculous Sharon. If you can't see that and why that is, then I'm sorry.

    You are talking to a Wahhabist here, Medusa.

    Although the info says female from Georgia, it sounds too much like a man from Saudi Arabia to be much else.
