Iran to Crack Down on Suntanned Women

Ah, yes. The glow of a suntan to add a little color to one's body. It's what many believe can add a healthy appearance to many when done in moderation. But not if you live in Tehran. Iranian women are being warned to stay out of the sun or face jail for violating the islamic dress code.

According to the NY Daily News, Iranian officials are threatening to arrest women (and men) who sport proof of their time in the sun citing that it violates the very dear islamic dress code that those cavemen love so much.

Tehran's police chief, Brig Hossien Sajedinia, made the following statement:

"The public expects us to act firmly and swiftly if we see any social misbehavior by women, and men, who defy our Islamic values," he said, the Telegraph reported. "In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins."

"We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them."

Similar laws are happening in the US.

I saw about the thong being banned. It really won't be long before we're under the watchful eye of the clothing police if this keeps up.

While I agree that SOME people just aren't meant to wear a thong bikini (myself included), freedom dictates that an individual be given that choice.

Liberty is dying the death of a thousand slices...

If you think about it, Obama's willingness to meet with the nut job of Iran says a lot- I wonder how much of their beliefs they have in common?

Obama is shredding the Constitution and taking away our liberties and freedom so maybe he likes the tyrannical Achmedinejad?

"Liberty is dying the death of a thousand slices..."

Unfortunately, this is happening, in America.

People who fail to see how oppressive Islam is put us all in danger of this type of oppression. I don't want anybody telling me how much to sunbathe or how much salt to put on my food.
