If you pay attention to Fox News, Breitbart, or any of the other popular cuckold fetish websites/stations, you probably think that that the famous Iranian woman waving her hijab in the air was risking death for her performance.
In truth, you got visited by the mighty ghost of fake news.
A scoop so false that it would make the likes of Jack “Ratfucker” Posobiec smile with approval – last I checked, he was one of the ones pushing this narrative heavily among his followers.
Women in Tehran will no longer be arrested for appearing in public with their heads uncovered, almost 39 years after the strict dress code was introduced.
The surprise announcement was made late last night by police in the Iranian capital and overturns one of the most visible pillars of the Islamic laws under which the country has been governed since 1979.
“Those who do not observe the Islamic dress code will no longer be taken to detention centres, nor will judicial cases be filed against them,” said General Hossein Rahimi, the city’s police chief.
Even this source makes it seem as if Iranian women faced regular beatings, gang-rapes, or other vibrancies if they failed to have their headscarves on properly – not true whatsoever.
In fact, this decree was something in the works for years, and was probably just put out publicly at this moment in order to deflate one of the Neocon rallying points – the lack of Feminism in Iran.
And hell, even before this, Persian women could be seen without their hijab, and if confronted by authorities, the worst one one could expect in most situations would be similar to how public drunks are handled here in America – most would just be made to take a modesty class or something.
Now let’s compare with our gallant ally Saudi Arabia – not sure if they’re Glad or Hefty fans, though.
