    This part of the article certainly surprised me!

    Under Islamic law, trans people are deemed religiously permissible and the country carries out the second highest number of gender reassignment surgeries in the world, after Thailand.

    And yet, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death. Am I missing something?

    Ditto here. A woman becoming a man so she can sleep with her best friend and not feel guilty or get punished under Islamic law. I tried to approach this logically and came up just as empty as I do trying to figure out why a man would want to sleep with another man with big tits or why a man would want to have big tits in the first place and keep his dick. Islamic law is just as fucked up as the myriad of biblical interpretations that precede it.

    This would be more an issue if there actually were any homosexuals in Iran. However, as we've been informed, there are not.

    You are right of course Nick. I had forgotten what that butthole of a president said.
