Iran: Use of the word 'women' banned from state TV
AKI ^ | Nov 29 2007

Posted on 11/29/2007 5:21:56 PM PST by camerakid400

Tehran, 29 Nov. (AKI) - The word 'women' must now be replaced on Iranian state television by 'family', reformist Norouz news agency reports.

In programmes broadcast throughout the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against women last Sunday, Iranian state TV used the world family instead.

In recent weeks, Iran's Centre for the Participation of Women changed its name to the Centre for Family Matters.

At the time of former reformist president, Mohammad Khatami, the centre was set up within the president's office.

Khatami was president of Iran from 1997 to 2005.


TOPICS: Foreign Affairs; War on Terror

Ahmadinejad, God made male and female.
It was good.
God loves men and women.

Don’t you like women?
How do you like the internet?

I heard once, and I believe it’s true; nothing is private on the internet.

I believe I’ve read somewhere that Arabic has words for “son” and “child” but no word for “daughter”. Can somebody fluent in Arabic calibrate me on that?

Iran State TV?

Thats just so horrible, I watch Iran State TV all the time!(sarc.)

Reminds me of the old tune:

Slap her down again, pa

Slap her down again

Make her tell us more, pa

Tell us where she's been

We don't want our neighbors

Talkin' 'bout our kin

Slap her down again, pa

Slap her down again

If ever there was a hell on earth created especially for women, it has to be these countries controlled by imbecillic Islamofascists.

Iran is just getting started.

Mass exodus ping!

But of course the feminists all think George Bush is, oh, so much worse than Mr. Ahmadinejad.

Why don't they use the femi-nazi inspired "wymyn"?

familiy’s night out
family’s work
family’s libbers

This could get a little confusing.

The word “daughter” itself is an Indo-European word which also includes the Persian (Farsi) language. In Persian doukhtar (daughter) means both a girl and a daughter.

I assure you, the country as a whole is NOT an Ahmanutjob-ville, just the illegitimate regime controlling it. The people are just hostages as many other hostages of that regime from its very inception.

I apologize for my insensitivity. I know a number of people who have suffered under the current regime in Iran. I sympathize with them and their plight.

I went on a date with a beautiful woman...er...family last weekend.

Can't put my finger on it, but somehow something is lost in this replacement it seems.

The mullahs have erased the second sex from history. Where is the Western feminist outrage at the regime's treatment of women? (sound of crickets chirping)

Time is quickyly running out for these folks to finally step up and do away with these extremist animals.

Thank you for your response, Nachum. I appreciate your sentiments. As many in my own family have suffered under the degeneracy of this fascist regime, I try my best to make people aware of the distinction between the mullah regime and the vast majority of Iranian people who absolutely loathe these un-Iranian, anti-Iranian usurpers.

Maybe, maybe not. Either way, Iranians don’t speak Arabic.

In Arabic it would be “bint”, but Farsi is the likely language in this case.

The only resaon this dysfunctional, irrelevant culture still exists is by sitting on lakes of oil that the whackos insist we haul half-way around the world instead of producing closer to home - it certainly is not by accomplishment or effort.
