    Default Men in Iran Dress in Drag to Promote Gender Equality




    Photos from a stunning new Iranian campaign called "Kurdish Men for Equality" are making the blogosphere rounds.
    As Al-Jazeera reports, the Facebook photo series features Iranian men in drag, evidently in response to a judge's recent ruling that forced a man convicted of domestic abuse to wear women's clothing as a form of public humiliation.
    One of the men, identified by Global Voices as Namo Kurdistani, wrote of the campaign:

    "To show my solidarity and support to the “womanhood” and their suffers and torments during the history mostly have done by 'men' [sic]. as we have faced recently a stupid judge”s order to punish a person by putting on him the feminine customs, so it is one of the times that we should gather around each other and condemn this stupidity, brutality and inhumanity against the womanhood; the half of society as well as at least half of the human being on the earth. I am supporting womanhood by the at least I can do for them."

    View more photos from the campaign on Facebook here.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Its a start. Those poor people in Iran have to put up with such bullshit.

    You never know. Satire is an important source of rebellion. I feel the urge to give a big sloppy kiss to a Kurd in a dress right now...with video.

    Lovelovelove this. This is an exquisite example of manly behavior.

    I love these guys! They totally made my day.

    My racist vagina wants to do a few of them.

    People throw the word "brave" around like it's kleenex sometimes, but this took balls. Serious balls. Especially in a place like Iran.
