Since Rouhani’s election, I’ve had a boom in tourism, including people from America! Even your Anthony Bourdain visited and filmed here (and spoke well of me and my people, thank you very much)! Honestly, this assumption that I must hate Americans is outrageous and a paranoid fantasy of that America’s imagination.
but thank you, I could dress like a dehati and still look good.

Anonymous said: If she is bi, then why homosexuality is illegal in Iran?
((I have never explicitly stated iran’s sexuality as hetero/homo/bi. You can interpret her as you like.
as for the second part of your message, because Iranian modernity and nationalism since the late Qajar era has had homophobia deeply engrained within it, prior to the reworkings of Iran’s sexuality and gender realms [that was influenced by European ideas of modernity btw, Europeans who came to Iran during the Qajar era continuously sniped at Iran’s supposed “backwardness” in the latent displays of homosexual/homoromantic/homosocial interaction between men and between women] Iran had its own ideas of sexuality and gender, bisexuality/homosocial desires were accommodated to some respects. Persian poetry has a long tradition of homoromantic themes. Some Iranian shahs during the Qajar era had explicit and exclusive desire for young men [amrads] and sex with women was for reproductive purposes.
The homophobia present in Iran [produced in society and in the judiciary] now is a result of this body of cultural/intellectual reworking. If you want to know more about these things, I suggest you read Afsaneh Najmabadi’s works. It would benefit you. I’ve already answered similar questions))
