This one caught my eye as being clever.
"Communicative," so to speak : )

There is always a chance to become a celebrity.
Hint: Please Google "body modification" and watch the images. Are you "the one" who wants to follow/support the trend?
Believe me this is not a joke. For example, they claim multiple functionality when they multiple their tongue. It's bloodcurdling to me (comical at the beginning), but tongue really becomes multifunctional. What about 3-D tattoos? Or horn implant?!
Come Jesus Come :)

Quite agree about celebrity influence and the reasons you cite for it. I do hope that supporters of Farahni's display of independence now put their money where their mouth is and support the actor in her career in the West. For example, if there is a fundraiser hosted by her they show up and not suddenly switch to "she did it for fame." It can't be that the artist is part of the team only when she scores. We'll see!
Also, yes it is reasonable to conjecture that male computers have more STDs than female computers. At this point mine has enough viruses for both genders.
Clarification.by Farfromheaven2002 on Wed Jan 25, 2012 04:39 PM PST
Individuals with elevated media hype are more competent to change the people’s way of thinking. For one reason, they have giant numbers of audiences. After that, they are performers, and they entertain people. People love to watch TV including movies to feel good and worthy. As well, piece of arts indirectly makes an actor or actress a trusting icon. I wish all individuals were challenged greatly in a society before becoming celebrities in order to validate their trustworthiness. This is usually the case.
“To be fair, I don't know if I got these computer STDs from the porn websites or the Joan of Arc ones.” I liked your clarification about the photo, which meant Iranian men have more STDs than women. :)

Rorschach test or state of ART ?by Siavash300 on Wed Jan 25, 2012 02:20 PM PST
In the light of French artist mentality, The shot indicates the state of art. Most likely in the line of early work of Cezanne, and later on, work of Toulouse Lautrec. It consists with predominate culture of art in France. By reading men's comments on I.C no one claimed so far to be sexually aroused by viewing Golshifteh's photo. The black and white scenary is evocative of the movie Schindler's list where the jewish women were lining up for the gas chamber. Casts appears depressed or rather emotionlly num. No sexual messages, but it promotes women's liberation in Iran. The shot is a nightmare for male Chauvinism pigs who violated women's right in Iran for last 32 years. It promotes equality between men and women.

The Spoken Actionsby Demo on Wed Jan 25, 2012 01:39 PM PST
The records speak for themselves crystal clear! One is slave to her passions to gain fame and thus is exposing her breasts to the movie cameras. The other one sacrificed her life in the battle with all her heart behind the breasts! The first one is already forgotten but the later lives forever!

Point well taken regarding Sotoudeh's death defying activism. To be fair, she does get a lot of respect, admiration and attention, but the far larger reaction to Farahani's symbolic and relatively safer activism (if the photo is interpreted as a political act) indicates topsy turvy priorities in the opposition mindset.

"The actions of the 2 portrayed ladies speak for themselves."
What do you hear them say?
Great art work....by Bavafa on Wed Jan 25, 2012 10:07 AM PST
But I am more amazed at all the attention this has got. Some have given her so much credit and attention, yet hardly a word about others like Mrs. Nasrin Stedoh that has done so much work for Iranian women and consequently spending years in IRI prison.Iranian in diaspora has so much learning to do.
'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory
Awful!by Demo on Wed Jan 25, 2012 09:59 AM PST
Such a piece of crap. The actions of the 2 portrayed ladies speak for themselves & the Iranians' genders exploitations of such are nothing but a direct insult to their intelligence.
Some repliesby Ari Siletz on Wed Jan 25, 2012 09:40 AM PST
Monda: regarding what the woman in the cartoon is feeling or thinking, I'm not sure myself. Some have idolized Farahani, but the way over the top adoration of her by Shahin Najafi does bring up the possibility that he may have been aroused to rapture at the sight of flesh--as you know, a not uncommon undercurrent in Shiite rituals and Medieval religious writings. So, a well observed perspective on your part!
MPD: You bring in some cool angles, as always. Just to let you know the Emam Hossein class suffering I endured to offer this "excellent piece of art," my computer is now full of viruses from having to search through porn websites for the right picture. To be fair, I don't know if I got these computer STDs from the porn websites or the Joan of Arc ones.
Abarmard: Thanks for your encouragement. The main utility of the Golshifteh photo has been the wealth of information it has channeled our way about ourselves.
Well doneby Abarmard on Wed Jan 25, 2012 08:27 AM PST
Insightful. Thank you.
This is excellent, a piece of artby Multiple Personality Disorder on Wed Jan 25, 2012 12:12 AM PST
As an art piece, this cartoon raises many questions, some of them already being asked. It intrigues people to discuss what they are looking at. Is the artist categorizing men to be pornographic thinkers? Stereotyping them into having dirty minds? Is the woman being depicted as a sacrificial being? Martyr to the core? Are they out on a date, and if so, is he going to get laid, if the divide in the way of thinking is so vast? Why don't they, all of them, get a nose job?
These are all tough questions, and who is better than Ari to answer them?
Ari?by Monda on Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:39 PM PST
Is the woman in this scenario idolizing or fantisizing Jean D'Arc?! Isn't that a bit off, particularly compared to your male character in any scenario?! And is Golshifteh supposed to be the balance or catalist thereof/in?
Ari jan, I agree with Souri: this is confusing but Very funny visuals, nonetheless!
Ffh2002by Ari Siletz on Tue Jan 24, 2012 08:08 PM PST
I have no idea what you're talking about; can't take my eyes off the Jean d'arc picture : )
I object as a man.by Farfromheaven2002 on Tue Jan 24, 2012 07:49 PM PST
I am a man, and I thought similar to the woman (i.e. left person) in the photo. Am I a man? Give me a second:)
Yes I am, and I don't object anymore since these days we cannot conclude about one's sexuality by their appearances and clothes. I really don't know what the right picture is about. Both close their eyes. Is that a rule? Are we supposed to close our eyes with women?
We are all the addictedby Souri on Tue Jan 24, 2012 07:35 PM PST
We will talk about a subject until the day that a newer subject pops up !
We need to talk, anyway....
Nobody listen :)
But a picture, sometimes says more than a hundred speeches!
This one is is one of those verrrrrrry explicite !
Souriby Ari Siletz on Tue Jan 24, 2012 07:23 PM PST
I'm so done with this subject myself. Wonder when it will all be over. I hear they're re-titling one of her movies to "Meem mesl e mameh."
Wellby Souri on Tue Jan 24, 2012 07:11 PM PST
This time , I did understand it :)
