Ayatollahs Shift A Little – But Does Segregation Still Rule?

So the backward savages who misrule Iran have decided that women are not so inferior after all?

They have previously tried to justify their sexist discrimination on the grounds that women need to be denied the “sight of half-naked men.”



An obvious remedy would simultaneously be to afford men the “sight of half-naked women,” but the ayatollahs would have a collective heart attack were they ever to witness anything as interesting as that!

So maybe worth considering?

Sorry, this is a serious issue but the regime in Tehran invites ridicule.




FIFA, a gutless gang which has so far never enforced its own rules on the Islamist tyrants in Tehran…

(FIFA’s own statutes hold discrimination on grounds of gender punishable by suspension or expulsion.   https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/09/fifa-iran-assures-women-attend-world-cup-qualifier-190922113806296.html)

…is making much of a ‘concession’ by the sexist old sectarians.




The ayatollahs have suggested that women will be allowed to attend the up-coming international against Cambodia, which is scheduled for tomorrow.

But though I have looked at a variety of news-sites, I can see nothing that dispels my fears that the women, once admitted to the stadium, will not be segregated, like blacks in The Old South.

Like Jews in Nazi Germany, Iran’s women are regarded as second-class human beings, not branded with Yellow Stars but with head-shrouds.

It’s an attitude regrettably not unique to Iran – it is shared by bigots here in Jakarta, where I live.

But here, in Indonesia, overwhelmingly Muslim in terms of population, it’s perfectly acceptable for soccer fans both male and female to enter and enjoy a game, mingling happily with each other.

One of the reasons for hope in this country.

 But Iran?

Despite Al Jazeera’s own extremist sympathies, at least they included mention of that poor little girl  Sahar Khodayari, dubbed “Blue Girl” after the colours of her favourite team Esteghlal…

…who died in hospital after setting herself on fire outside a court where she feared being jailed for six months. 

Her crime?

Since the mangy old mutts wouldn’t let her watch her team, she had donned men’s clothing in hopes of gaining entry.

One day, one fervently hopes, the people of Iran will rise up, restore civilised government, put the ayatollahs on trial, and hang the cruel old b-stards responsible for such evil.

Yet even after that ‘Blue Girl’ tragedy, FIFA’s yellow flunkeys declined to outlaw Iran from world soccer.

I hope they have made it clear that letting women into that stadium is not enough.

There must be no segregation.

I ask that simply because, having checked any number of photos of the rare occasions when women have been allowed in, it seems they are penned together, apartheid-style, segregated from their male friends, relatives, boy-friends or colleagues.

Separate but equal is an affront to what sport is all about!

NB – I’m not talking about provision of voluntary areas for women, similar to those on the Jakarta buses, where those who wish to can self-segregate, but those who don’t are free to sit in the general area alongside us guys.

I’m talking about compulsory sex-apartheid. Unacceptable!
