My letter to Iran

Iran's been all over the news lately, with a controversial nuclear weapons program and an 18-page letter sent by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to our own GW Bush.

But do you know what really bothers me about Iran? Not the potential nuclear threat, but stuff like this: Iran bars women from attending soccer matches. Oh, and what else? Since 1979:

"Iran's Islamic law imposes stringent restrictions on women. They need a male guardian's permission to work or travel, and have rarely been allowed to attend public sports events."

Maybe I'll write a little letter of my own.

Dear Iran,
Fuck off. Stop using religion as an excuse to oppress 51% of your population.
From,
Eileen
