Iranian Style Crackdown Extends To Men April 29, 2007

Give the mullahs credit for consistency.

I previously posted on the Iranian style police taking action against trashy women who let their hair peek out, and other such sluttish and unIslamic behaviors.

Apparently this is not just a sexist thing, because men are getting the same treatment. So, give the mullahs some credit.

Iranian police have warned barbers not to give men Western hairstyles or use make up on them.

The move is part of an unusually fierce crackdown on what is known locally as bad hijab, or un-Islamic clothing, that this year is also targeting men.

Hair stylists have been warned that they could lose their licences if they do not comply.

However, police have denied a report that they have ordered barbers not to serve customers wearing ties.

I guess it’s good news that they are being open-minded about ties.

But the Iranian police are not open-minded about effeminate girly-men who want a paraffin wax treatment for their hands, like Dave in Texas.

OK, I don’t actually know that for sure. I’m just inferring that from the fact that Iranian police don’t tolerate eyebrow-plucking.

Police say that as well as avoiding Western hairstyles and make up, barbers should not pluck customers’ eyebrows.

So, you see what I mean. On Dave’s next visit to Tehran, I’m thinking he is going to have to put up with rough, chapped hands.

Iran Ban On Western Hairstyles

Gee, an excellent BBC news story like that really gets me in the mood.

You know the mood I mean. I am talking about being in the mood for some really excellent music, that you will all discuss in the comment thread below:

Balding men in Iran to be punished for imitating Dick Cheney’s hairstyle.

Do these restrictions extend to personal grooming of, shall we say, other hirsute areas of ones person?
