    Iran's 'blue girl' dies after setting herself on fire - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-49646879?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=facebook&ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_campaign=bbcnews&fbclid=IwAR2UUeFCRBda5ryz8OtiJGgrsjosRTL0NCG0TsE0gSucgq4F3L4XyuTZVCg

    This is so sad. Football is a beautiful game. It is meant to be a sport that enables those from different backgrounds to meet, bond and become friends. It is meant for all.

    Imo FIFA should ban Iran from football tournaments until they allow everyone to enter stadiums on equal terms

    Well yeah, Iran should be kicked out of international football, but I’m sure there may be other like minded nations who are the same, but setting yourself on fire seems a bit drastic tbh.

    If you take into account the general nature of football fans (as exemplified by this board) and the inclination of Muslim males to consider all women fair game, I believe it is in their best interests to be kept away from male dominated events.

    1) The comment about Muslims is generalisation. It is only the ultra-conservative Muslims who view women as "fair game". In other words Saudi and Iran
    2) The controversy is about the apartheid-esque system in Iran and women's rights in that country

    But you’re ok with the generalisation about football fans in general and the members of this forum in particular? :sherlock:

    So...over 50 million men in the countries mentioned, plus most of the backwater parts of Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Bangladesh, Yemen...

    The middle East is backwards.

    When I took a holiday in Egypt some years ago my wife returned black and blue because the locals couldn't keep their hands to themselves. They only had to see a woman to start crowding around her and putting their hands all over them. My wife has never experienced this sort of behaviour anywhere else in the world. The stories of women being punished for having been raped are all too common. IMO such an apartheid system is necessary in such cultures.

    Banning women from football seems ok, dont see anything wrong with it.

    When Slade was in charge I once dressed as a woman to get out of the stadium.

    Maybe it’s a class thing as I am from Pakistan and the women in my family are generally respected

    You live in Britain....where women are generally well respected....except for among certain groups...

    Either that or your family were able to travel to Britain as they were well respected. There will be thousands if not millions who aren't because they do not demand the same respect.

    I was referring to my family in Pakistan. Even among family friends in Pakistan women are well respected. Though I don't know if the same is true among people who live in areas that are rural or with a high proportion of poorly educated people

    And there we have it.

    Poorly educated people regularly are highly religious people. The scum of the earth. Ones who show us all on this board that there is no hope for humanity.

    The ones who believe that those who don't follow their sky fairy of choice will be burnt to a crisp in hell anyway so we might as well execute them for the pleasure of our God(s)...

    When you think that billions of people think this way (from Pakistan to the USA, from Islam to Christianity), it becomes futile to even debate. I'm off to drink.

    "Think of how lacking in intelligence the average person is, and then think that half of the people on earth are more stupid than that."

    It's depressing.
