An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Women have been banned from wearing boots and on the streets of Tehran.
Police chief, General Ahmad Radan, announced the ban on Wednesday saying that boots could only be worn if they were covered by pants.
“If boots are not covered by pants that fall to the ankles, they show the female shape and that is therefore in contradiction with Islamic dress code,” said Radan.
Iranian women can no longer leave home with their pants pushed inside their boots and they can no longer wear hats without a veil.
“A hat is not an adequate substitute for a veil or a hijab,” he said. ” If someone really wants to wear a hat, they can put it on the veil.”
Feminist Rezvan Moghdaddam told Adnkronos International (AKI) that police should be concerned about drug traffickers than street fashion.
“Instead of being busy with women’s hats and boots, the police would be better catching the merchants of death that kill our young people with drugs,” she said from Tehran.
“Our cities are infested by delinquents and security forces are only worried about how women dress, all this is really ridiculous.”
Generale Radan said decision to apply the Islamic code had come from a committee composed of the Revolutionary Guard, the judiciary, police and officials from the intelligence ministry and the ministry of culture and Islamic orientation.
Boots? This is what the Iranian government concerns itself with? BOOTS? Does it snow in Iran? What if the lady doesn’t want to get her pants dirty, wet, whatever? She can’t protect her clothing with boots?
This country has a president, from all indications, that is nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake, threatening destruction of Israel, led by a bunch of women hating old men, who can’t see past the 7th century, and they are worried about whether or not a lady has something other than tree trunks for legs. Jiminy crickets! Insanity!
