As I wrote before, you are not Iranian. Don't forget that. You are Iranian-American or Iranian-European and etc.  So don't try to force your adopted ideology and bikini to Iranians. You can do that with your family perhaps, but not with others. It is the majority in Iran who decide and as times go by, they will make the changes.


If shiat lebanese like ahmad bi mokh and his zaife so much...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

They should just keep them in Lebanon and bring the entire islamist regime leadership to south lebanon to "lead" them in their jihad against zionists (of course hiding behind civilian women and children is what these "leaders" and their hizbullah "fighters" would do at times of war!). This way the lebanese shiates would earn themselves the eternal gratitude of the entire Iranian nation!

OnlyIran jaan: I agree 100% and truly a Harf-e hesabi zadi

by Bavafa on

I also think it is sad that we (at least some of us) focus so much on issues such as this here that is so trivial compared to all the things that is happening to our people and to our mother land. Calling for freedom to choose your dress code is one thing, ridiculing folks who don't subscribe to our preferred way of dressing is another thing.

I wish we could channel all this energy and anger towards removing the theoretical/dictatorship that currently exist in Iran and is the source of so much misery for Iranian people.

With a hope of one day Iran is free, not only to choose their dress code but more importantly they can choose their political affiliatioin, religion, and gender equality and all other things that we enjoy here in the west. 



OnlyIran: Harf-e hesabi

by AMIR1973 on

Hopefully, one day we will have an Iran where people can dress whichever way they wish without fearing reprisals or punishment.

The issue is not chador; the issue is the denial of a basic freedom to choose whether or not one wears hejab. For 3 decades, Iranians have had this basic right taken away from them. For West-residing IRI Groupies, this fundamental issue of freedom is not understandable to their anti-human mentality.

Hopefully, one day we will have an Iran where people can dress whichever way they wish without fearing reprisals or punishment.  I personally don't like the chador, but someone else may like it, and that's fine with me--and really none of my business.  So long as it's not obligatory, it's the person's choice.  Hopefully, one day we will get there...one day... 


Come on guys.....do not ridicule your culture.....

by Kooshan on

Learn from Japs.....and....love your heritage....Chador is one of them!

This was the mistake Shah made and costed him his throne. People have feelings...respect them.

Whether you like it of not, majority of people in Iran like Hizab...and...they like it in different forms.

i don't know what the fuss is about.  this is the most hilarious picture i've seen in a long time.  it looks as if it was photoshopped.  the only way ahmadi's wife could've improved on this "outfit" was to wear a neghab. :)



by Benyamin on

My grand mother was 95 years old when she died.(rip)

She remembered, Mohamad ali shah, Ahmad shah, Reza shah, Mohamd reza shah, khomeini and khameneie. She never traveled outside Iran, she couldn`t read or write and since she was from North west of Iran couldn`t even understand much Farsi. So she couldn`t have been in touch with westerners or like minded people. She also couldnt have read about it. The point is, she said something to me that stuck with for ever.

One day, when we were watching tv as always she couldn`t understand what was going on so naturally she would get bored and wanted to talk about other things or ask questions about what was going on tv. The tv was zoomed on something that was political and showed women in chadore (I can`t eremeber what it was) but it was showing women in Chadore. So suddenly she turned and said "this culture is foreign to me". I was stunned. I had to ask, so I said what do you mean? She said I don`t remember ever wearing chadore in my village, we always wore clothes in colors with big flower designs on them with white or "ranghay shaad". This culture(pointing at the women in black) is foriegn to me.

I believe my Grand mother was right.

PS: She wore eyelashes to the day she died(sormeh). She believed a woman must embrace her beauty.


One big advantage of chaador

by MM on

One big advantage of chaador is that one can have several body-doubles, easily.  I highly recommend chaador for AN while he is in a non-secure area, or as he is starting the second intifaada by throwing the symbolic stone.

Veiled Prophet of Khorasan


by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


Iranian women wear charod because they get beaten and intimidated. Just as soon as they step outside to the West the chador goes. Same goes with pretending to be Muslim. Iranians pretend to because they are killed if they do not.

Before IRI there were enough morons who really believed this stuff. Thanks to Khomeini we saw the real face of Islam. Now neither chador nor Islam has an appeal. Both symbols of hate and oppression.

Of course Arabs and Arab lovers like you do not get it. To you and the rest of leftover Tazi gene pool Islam is the way. You will find it an increasingly isolated path. As one by one people leave it.


OnlyIran: "I don't care if a person wears a chador or a bikini"

by Bavafa on

But many of us do care… some of these women should not be seen in a bikini. The sight of them in a bikini causees performing as a man a much harder task.

But on a serious note, I agree with your comment in regards to freedom to choose what you wear and also her role.

"And she wore a chador for certain occasions!"

You hit the nail right on the head - your grandmother had a CHOICE, she wore it for certain occasions.

Your islamo-nazi terrorist masters will beat and imprison innocent girls for 'bad hejab', these girls have NO CHOICE; after the revolution they even threw acid in unveiled women's faces - this is the type of brutal criminals and thugs you are on here defending - and yet you like to talk about "meehan" and how proud you are of Iran and your heritage - shame on you vatanforoosh hypocrites.

lets agree that a large number of Iranian women wear chador. And also lets not forget chador is worn at special occations too as Sargord pointed out (by those who don't wear it at all times).

PS: The democratic people of Switzerland voted Muslims cannot build any structure that looks like a mosque! Now you were in Iran and saw all those churches that are built to look like churches.

If you think that is a chador then you don't know what a chador is. Take Amir's advise and buy a burga. 

My face is too bright for people like you to behold; thus I cover it to save your sight.

by Sargord Pirouz on

Mola get's it.

Personally, I have fond memories of my grandmother wearing a chador to the bazaar. And she was the wife of a former minister and winner of the Légion d'Honneurand daughter of the writer of the 1906 Constitution! One of her sons wrote a formal proof for one of Einstein's theories. And she wore a chador for certain occasions!

You anti-Iran folks are so extreme, you're borderline non-Iran.

by AMIR1973 on

The Swiss are indeed a very democratic sociey where no mosques are allowed to be built. 

This is a lie. I disagree with the Swiss referendum, but let's not lie about it. The referendum banned the building of new minarets, not mosques. There are currently about 150 mosques or prayer rooms in Switzerland, and 4 of them have minarets. The referendum prohibits new minarets from being built. Now, let's ask the West-residing IRI Groupies about the over 200 Bahais executed by the IRI because of their religion (including a number of young women). We can also ask them about the individuals killed for being involved in converting Muslims. The lying and hypocrisy of West-residing IRI Groupies has no limits. Cheers.

VPK, If chador is so bad then why are you wearing it?

by Mola Nasredeen on

Amirak, send someone more mature and wiser to have a conversation here because you bore me to death repeating the same lines over and over day in, day out. 



by AMIR1973 on

Mola Nasrallah, it would be in the interests of everyone if you have your womenfolk wear a burqa instead. The chador reveals the face, and that is more than we want to see of them. Cheers  :-)

Are you a spokeswoman for "majority of Iranian" women? Lady where did you get that qalification.

We don't need your advise as to what to tell people. 

Regarding Swiss: Good! If only the rest of the world followed.

Isalm is not an Iranian religion. It belongs to your Tazi masters. You are the "alienated" one.

Mola Nasredeen

What a bunch of alienated losers!

by Mola Nasredeen on


The majority of Iranian women wear chador and they are comfortable wearing it. If you want to see bikini lines look somewhere else like Switzerland. There they have their nudist colonies and maybe they let you take a peak too, but don't let them know you're Iranian. The Swiss are indeed a very democratic sociey where no mosques are allowed to be built. 


A Friendly Advice

by dhhcfo on


Can I offer some English language related comments to you?  You badly need to improve your writing style and expressing your thoughts in proper English language.  You are absolutely miserable grammatically and cannot address your thoughts within proper context.  For the purpose of this note I would like to ignore your spelling problem.

May I suggest privately some “online” or perhaps “local” English language schools (if I only know where you live)?



Dear Shushtari, Simorgh, and OnlyIran

by AMIR1973 on

As all of you have observed, it is as plain as day that the West-residing IRI Groupies are a bunch of lowlife hypocrites. They propagandize on behalf of an anti-American, anti-Iranian terrorist regime that denies Iranians their basic rights while they themselves enjoy the freedom of life in the U.S. and exploit that freedom to express support for the enemies of America. Regards.

Islamist vocabulary

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


The resident Islamists like their masters do not use normal words. In their vocabulary Iranian means Arab worshipper. Because in their point of view there was no Iran before Islam. In fact there was no civilization before Islam. Therefore if you do not worship Islam and Arabs you they do not find you either Iranian or civilized. The problem is that they are wrong. Arabs were never particularly high on civilization before or after Islam.

Iran was civilized *despite* Islam but got a pretty bad trashing. Thanks to the diaspora both in the past and present much was preserved. Nevertheless Islamists are desperate to wreck Iranianness. 

The so called "Amir Kabir" exemplifies their attacks. Try to tarnish a great Iranian by associating him with an IRI groupie. Whine that Iranians who love Iran are not true Iranians. But Arab loving; Iran haters are "Real Iranian". Yeh right, we are not falling for it again.

Go get another puffed up an-tellectual to push the Islam garbage. It worked in 1979; maybe it is worth another try; maybe not.
