That some Iranian men support IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, as repugnant a fact as is, nevertheless can somewhat be explained away for number of semi-rational sounding reasons including granting all of them automatic superiority over all the women. But that some women supporting IRR is a perplexing phenomenon.
The perplexity gets even more convoluted when one observes seemingly secular, some even avowedly anti-religion Iranian women with CV’s full of BS, MS and Ph.D. to be among the IRR cheerleaders.
Why would anyone support a system which by creed and law regards that person as half a human being, as regardless of age needing permission form her men folks to travel, deciding for her how to cloth herself or use makeup and other such absurdities?
Why would anyone support a system which sees fit to stone her gender to death for what is at most a lapse of judgment and/or infraction of social/moral etiquette.
What on earth is going on inside these women’s head?
