Iran Women’s Soccer Teams Consist of Men in Hijabs


I know men played women’s parts in Shakespeare’s day, but this is ridiculous.

Iran, despite hanging gay men, is okay with it if the men get a sex change operation instead. While Sunni Islam tends to, officially limit sex change operations to hermaphrodites, the Ayatollah Khomeini was pretty enthusiastic about trannies.

Since Iran kills gay men but allows men to sleep with men if they go the hijab route while repressing women, and has a lot of doctors, it’s not hard to figure out what happened next.

Iran now carries out more sex change operations than any country in the world. Iran being a Shiite Islamist totalitarian state, these operations are sometimes compulsory. Yes, compulsory. It’s Iran after all.

So to no one’s surprise, Iranian women’s soccer teams have a lot in common with the plot of comedies from the 1980s.

Footballers in Iran’s professional women’s league are to undergo mandatory gender tests to establish that they are fully female.

The country’s football governing body is bringing in the random checks after it was revealed that several leading players – including four in the national women’s team – were either men who had not completed sex change operations, or were suffering from sexual development disorders.

Ahmad Hashemian, head of the Iranian football federation’s medical committee, said the clubs themselves were now obliged to carry out medical examinations to establish the gender of their players before signing them on contracts.

“If these people can solve their problems through surgery and be in a position to receive the necessary medical qualifications, they will then be able to participate in [women’s] football,” Mr Hashemian, a qualified doctor, said in remarks quoted by IRNA, the state news agency.

Ahmad is only barring men who haven’t been fully castrated from playing. Once they go through full mutilation, they’re welcome on the team.

That means Iranian women’s sports teams have a lot in common with East German women’s sports teams.

The increasing normalization of the tranny movement means that the whole idea of female sports teams and gender segregated competitions are about over. Paradoxically this means that the left has killed Title IX or at least made it into another weird comedy in which you only have male teams and teams of men pretending to be women.

It took a while, but life is now the plot of Bosom Buddies.

    Beta males stand a good chance of getting clipped it seems. The Alpha males then have to console more females who cannot find male partners as a 2nd, 3rd or 4th wife.

      Bobby Briggs played against Billie Jean King

      “Small in stature, he lacked the overall power of his larger competitors such as Don Budge and Kramer but made up for it with brains, ball control, and speed. ” -

      Many times men small in stature are assumed to be betas. He would have none of it. Bobby Briggs was pure predator.

      Nowadays, I can see supposedly well meaning coaches and others encouraging him to get a zex change, because there is no way he could win as a male due to being smaller.


        It was Riggs, not Briggs.

          TY, I made the correction. He still was a heck of guy.

    I wonder how the ayatollahs feel about women who want to be men. Could someone go from being chattel to being a person with full rights? Would a woman raped by a gender reassigned male still be prosecuted?

    It’s already happening in the US – have you heard about Gabrielle Ludwig, a fifty-year-old six-foot-six, 250-pound man who’s allowed to play on a college girls’ team because he calls himself “she” now?

  • Melissa Wilson

    This is a poorly written article. The writer apparently knows very little, if anything, about the transgender phenomena and is all over the map in the article, claiming that all men have to do, to play on women’s teams, is wear a hijab, then later that gender surgery is “castration” or “mutilation”. It seems more biased against trans people than it is truthful about Iran.

      R U new here?

      The men at issue here are pre-surgery.

      • Melissa Wilson

        But calling gender reassignment “mutilation”? More like reconfiguration. And remember, this isn’t a big first or anything. Wasn’t there a tennis star, years ago? Yeah, Iran should be called, for sending people who are still technically males, in there. ( Iran sucks – let me count the ways ) but your article still seems pretty biased.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Unless this involves recreating genes, it’s not reconfiguration. In practice, it’s surgical mutilation since the resulting changes are ‘mock’ versions of the real thing while mutilating actual functional body parts.

          • Melissa Wilson

            Yeah well I’m sure you’re a medical scientist and professional, and therefore an expert and the last word on the phenomenon. But you just sound like a common bigot to me. Oh well…

          • Daniel Greenfield

            It’s not a matter of medical science, but identity politics by a group of mentally ill people who keep insisting that they can change gender which with our current technology is completely impossible.

          • Chavi Beck

            If one day they figure out how to reassign an individual person’s genes, let’s hope they prioritize curing Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Tay Sachs, PKU, sickle-cell anemia, etc, over gender reassignment.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Considering how bad things have gotten, I’m not too sure about that.

          • Chavi Beck

            Yeah. I was trying to be positive though.

          A transgendered person could look like Christie Brinkley, but it would not matter.

          I would take a real female of any color, who was a 1 on a 10 scale, near sighted and buck toothed over that transgendered person.

          It is mutilation. It is not functional.

          I could reassign a skyscraper as a battleship. I could cut the skyscraper from its base and float it in the water and put guns on it. It still wouldn’t be a real battleship now would it?

          Let me give you a clue. I am not the picture of an alpha male, but I do the best I can. But I can live with it & happily so. My kids are better looking than their parents. I would rather it be that way than the other way around. It is a tough world out there.

    Hmm? What does the infallible word of Allah, as dictated to Mohammad, in the Koran have to say about this? So now, can a male to female Irani Tranny, qualify to be beaten with a shoe, and stoned to death if a he is raped by a gay Iranian male?
    All very confusing. I think I need to hear a fatwa on this to clarify matters.

    So how does this effect the 72 virgins? Does a tranny count as a female in Muslim heaven, or are the virgins lesbians, and if so, isn’t that homosexuality, once again? It’s enough to drive the Mahdi to drink a toddy….oops!

    Shakespeare would have a (Green)field day with this.
