Sticking it to the MAN

Well, you know, Iranian revolution is good but this will cause head explosions in many blogs of a rightward nature. Gay Patriot will just wilt.
Within hours of Tavakoli's photograph being published in the newspapers, hundreds of young Iranian men posted photographs of themselves dressed in headscarves, bed sheets and other forms of improvised hijab. This has spread online in chat rooms and websites and soon enough to the meetings of the opposition.
Superb, this will flummox the old pricks who run the place. I especially enjoy this bit
As a leading Iranian website and chat room exhorts, "Be a man. Send us your picture as a woman".
There are other non-political sites that address this issue, as well.

I had no idea that I was supporting the Green movement all those weekends in Provincetown.

So what you're saying is that all I'd have to do to support the Iranian resistance, in spirit at least, is to dress up in a pair of black sheer stockings, a garter belt, bustier, spike heels under a sheer dressing gown?

Well, ok then, I'm all about the democracy and shit....

I wonder if the Teabaggers can be persuaded to dress up as Betsy Ross...

While one never knows about other cultures, my experience re; cross dressing is that, though it might get you laid it will not change your political system. The Iranians may live in bizarro world though where cross dressing not only doesn't get you laid it doesn't change the political system either. Also. Too.

Also, this cross-dressing humour is not sufficiently Shakespearean. Nearby Hotspur-themed posts do not count.

Dood.

Hello!! Panties.

The panties stand alone. Even on the lumpy, hairy dudes. It is the universal theory of quantum panties.

Embrace the panties. The panties shall set ye free!

what? more Shakespearo?
I'faith now is the winter of my discontent, searching for trouble I can forment,
High heels, suspenders and a bra, in this cold it won't go far.
But 'twill proceed to unseat the king. And allow my cruel and wicked reign to begin.
