Blimey, UmTayyab, you must have huge shoulders - that chip you're carrying appears to be enormous!

What are you scared of seeing if you open your heart a little too see the grey areas of life, instead of just the black and white bits?

Life is NOT that simple, even if you demand it should be.

The women in this documentary (or any of the other Iranian docos I have seen) are not flashy whores who live for newer, shinier toys or thre newest, groovy drugs, they are poor women whose only hopes appear to be taking care of their children AND still appearing to be the caring, house-bound mothers they are expected to be, and some of them seem to manage to eke out an existance by getting a temporary marriage with someone they don't necessarily love, but at least he might take care of them so they don't have to work any more.

Bismillah,

Good points, Kim.

Al-Hamdulillah (From a Married Muslimah) La Howla Wa La Quwata Illa BiLLah - There is no Effort or Power except with Allah's Will.

I'm sorry - WHAT?

In a society where men get to have multiple wives (and, therefore NO reason to visit prostitutes), where men are the ones who have all the power, where men have all the money and where men have all the choices - WHO are destroying marriages?

WHO?

WHO pays the women? WHO gets to do what they want? WHO gets women to do what they want?

 

WHO??????

The women do NOT destroy marriages - men destroy the world.

Life is not good if there is no DEMOCRACY.  The Koran demands secularism.
