There are two kinds of soosool boys, a friend once told me, referring to the Persian slang word for "sissy" boys. Soosool-e shomali va soosool-e junubi: Northern sissy boys and Southern sissy boys. With their spiked hair, svelte figure, and cultivated regalia with (usually fake) brand name apparel on display, the soosool is a common sight throughout Tehran, part of the domestic wildlife that attracts the eye of the foreign journalist, the pious mullah, and the teenage girl.

As a former jonub-shahri, I tip my hat to some of these Soosools.
