Some Balls For A Change

Iranian Women's Soccer Team Disqualified From Olympics Over Headscarves

Read the article.

The FIFA has ruled head scarves cannot be worn in their matches because having them wrapped around the neck is a safety hazard.

Nice to see someone with the balls to say the Muzzies have to follow the rules for a change.

This is really fun too.

"These are the dictators and colonialists who want to impose their lifestyle on others,"..."We will deal with those who carried out this ugly job. We follow definite rights of our girls."

President Imanutjob, Iran.

It's touching to see Iran lead the way in women's rights.

Let them play in their burka, if they can beat you wearing one of those, you deserve to lose...

I don't give them any kudos. Why are they chickening out by saying it's a hazard... tell the truth! Because it's stupid to play a game (or go through life) with that crap on your head!!!!!

You should rent Jafar Panahi's "Offside". Women are forbidden from attending soccer matches in Iran and this film is a pretty slick comedy about a group of female fans trying to sneak in to a match.

Panahi is currently under house arrest in Iran along with other Iranian film makers.

Ducky's here: Iran and the rest of the middle east needs to come to grips with the modern world.

All, I'm not really taking a stand one way or another on scarves in soccer. I don't agree with them, they are clearly degrading to women and I believe they need to be banned in all western societies. Let the ME do what they want.

My point with the post is it is nice to see a world organization stick with it's rules and not bend over backwards to placate Islam.

Born Again, the rules are the rules

Cube, I think it's better to stick with the rules instead of making a political statement. Although they don't seem to shy away from this either

Duck, I may look on Netflix

Cube, maybe they can bring themselves into the 16th century?

So Iran will let women compete in a sport but won't allow then to attend matches.

How does that make sense?

MK said...

You seldom get much sense from these bodies, but this is a good decision. They deserve credit for it.

Chuck said...

Brooke sorry - out of town and not responding much. The irony never ends with these people

MK, it is quite a departure
