  1. No hijab- stunning and brave! Fight for freedom! Disobey the government! Girl Power!No mask in Korea- Lock her up! Troublemaker! Obey the government! How Dare You?!Liberal Logic

  2. Does head scarf or hijab makes a woman ?

  3. Now the men will want to be with woman instead of lil boys. Oh noes.

  4. This girl is an example of how to fight silly obligations about how to dress. Why does anyone have to force Iranian women to hide their beautiful black hair? Unfortunately not only in Iran but also in most western countries there is a very similar repression. For example, in the summer I would like to go naked to the supermarket but if I did they would arrest me immediately and throw me in jail. Yet I'm fit and with a nice body, why can't I show off my long penis, which I'm very proud of?
