"Man, you are shaking....It’s okay..."

by Farfromheaven2002 on


“...a commercial, for how normal we are.  When we aren’t anything, but...” 

“Man, you are shaking....It’s okay....Just tell me what you, wow, wow.....I am sorry you got a wrong idea.”



There are still many people like Frank.  Please allow them to express themselves.  Writing is an efficient way to communicate with your own/inner self.  There are many men like Frank who constantly abuse themselves and their dear family.  Frank insists distancing from his own true self.  Thank you for providing such a valuable opportunity for Iranians. 


Courageous display of personal liberties,

by Liberated on

These brave women are displaying an important part of their life. Under the regime of Islamic Hypocracy of Iran their existance is not even acknowledged.  I hope soon we can flush the Islamic sewage, this collections of 1400 years old Arab stupidity and superstition down the historical drain and back to Arabia.

suggested exhibit. Since historically it's been the epicenter of Sex Workers in Iran, pimped by non other than your beloved mullahs. Perhaps Simorgh could also help along  to 'cure' their 'sickness.'

by Khebedin on

Soon we need to have the SWI exhibition. Sex Workers of Iran have every right, like these women, to have an exhibition and display their Art and their contribution to the Iranian Society.

Well what can I say. I think this was meant to be named Fart but for some reason lost its F and became art.

"Homosexuality is a sickness"

Two people of the same sex loving each other, an art collection displaying this theme, is that the worst thing brought up by mankind? What about murder, wars etc?

"As long as it was done by conseting adults"

by Simorgh5555 on

I heard that nonsense before. Consenting adults, eh? The day you would accept a consenting father and daughter to have intercourse with one another will measure your true tolerance. Homosexuality is a sickness and like all sick people they need counselling and therapy not punishment.

out there.

Is anyone forcing you to watch this? No.

Perhaps its  your bias and extreme dislike that should be kept private!

As far as the art works themselves, as long as it was done by consenting adults; it's no one's business. Get used to it. Cheers

by Simorgh5555 on

Truly revolting. To oppose the IR Terror Regime does not mean espousing every indecent behaviour. Iranian gays should keep their private life to themselves and not flaunt it. I am saddened and disappointed by such a disgraceful exhibition which brings out the worst in mankind.
