Is it 'cuz they're Shiites and you're Sunni?
Primarily yes. But also because they just have a different culture and lifestyle apart from faith. I'd be more open to dating a Desi Shia person (not entirely but more likely than an Iranian Shia just saying).
I like them, because they're rebellious and don't cause conflict with anyone. And when was the last time you heard about an Iranian terrorist killing a US civilian? EXACTLYIranians are my favorite Muslims
Lol ok my favorite Muslim is the one who follows Islam properly doesn't matter where they are from or what they are associated with. In the end I need someone that I can live with.
LOLYou mean YOU think is proper.The truth is, no one can agree on what "Proper Islam" is.But you're not following it properly yourself. If you were, your hair would be covered.
Some Iranians are Jewish and Catholic.
@zeusslightningbolt yeah right, it does depend on what I find proper that's why I said his beliefs have to align with mine.Also, whether or not hijab is mandatory is a different topic but here's a little piece of my take: hijab was really not that mainstream until the recent decades and I'm pretty sure they didn't have a bunch of hijab pins and what not 1400 years ago. Just saying. 🤷🏽♀️
I watched a video about the hijab and the full covering and it wasn't part of Islam right away. It was put into place to protect women from sexual assault but that isn't really foolproof of course. I am against covering for health reason. It's the number 1 one reason why Muslim women have low Vitamin D levels. It's especially bad for women living in the west because there is almost no places they can remove their coverings. I spent a couple days covered for a majority of the day when my friend's teenage daughter passed away and by day 2 I felt emotionally suffocated. I did it out of respect because I loved her daughter dearly but that is the only time I would do it.
@sejla I actually want to start covering my head (am kinda struggling to commit to it LOL pray for me) and I don't think I'll be as strict about it as the mainstream hijab is because again, they didn't have all those hijab pins 1400 years ago so I don't know why I need to be pinning myself down like that. And the amount of sun we need is actually very little, the sunlight we get indoors in daytime is literally enough if you maintain wake up early in the morning... It personally doesn't make sense to me to reveal a lot of skin and then layer on SPF 100 and reapplying again and again when wearing covering clothes does the same thing, it doesn't have to be hot (instead it's rather irritating to have bare skin exposed to the sun directly, cotton clothes are comfy and they give coverage) and it's reusable, unlike sunscreen that you have to buy again and again, which is not as sustainable in the long run. I already cover my whole body and stopped wearing anything tight or sheer for a few years, I completely quit leggings and see-through fabric on sleeves of dresses. It does require me to tailor most of my outfits but I don't mind that.
People can't get vitamin d production from the sunlight going through class. They have to be outside unless you have an open window or garden without a covering or glass blocking the sunlight. I'm white so the headscarf just slides off my hair even if I pin it. It's tedious to keep adjusting it and I'm not Muslim. I just do it in certain situations like visiting a mosque or a funeral. Now that is very infrequent.
I don't use sunscreen much unless I'm going to be out for an extended period of time.
I meant glass not class.
@sejla if people couldn't get vitamin D through indoor lighting then trust me there wouldn't be people suggesting to wear sunscreen even indoors where there is sunlight. I haven't seen any woman getting rickets or osteoporosis from covering their body if they wake up early and don't remain in closed doors all day but instead there are people getting skin cancer from sunbathing.
Actually if you read online there are many citations saying we can't get enough sun through windows or car windows. I've never heard of wearing sunscreen inside. In the U. S. there are very few places where women can have the privacy to get sunlight. The only way is if someone was living in the country and had no neighbors. Otherwise houses are too close together to guarantee a man would not see them.
@sejla if that was the case then people living in colder countries would be suffering from rickets but they don't. People from those regions tend to be very pale so their skin can absorb all the sunlight that they can get.
If we are outside with our skin exposed but in the long winters months this doesn't happen. That is why many people have to take vitamin d supplements or eat lots of fish in the winter months.
@sejla of course you're gonna need proper nutrition depending on the season. But hijab causing vitamin D deficiency just does not make sense. Sorry I can't agree here.
@sejla did they take their lifestyle factors into account? Besides diet and how much they cover?
The two faced part comes from maintaining a public image and a private image. It's the same in the Arab culture. I find it exhausting.
The men I believeWhat about the girls?
@sejla You're Arab?Latinos are also two faced.He will be really friendly to you during the day, then at night he will rob you with his gangster friends.
No I was married to a man who was Arab. He wasn't that way but many of the people I met were. It doesn't necessarily mean people are bad that do it but like say you don't want someone to come to your house an Arab woman might say I'm going to have an appointment or be out for some reason instead of just saying I'm too tired for visitors. In the U. S. we just tell our friends no not today.
@zeusslightningbolt I've had the same problems with Iranian women. @sejla that's a good point. I never thought about it like that.
Sorry to tell you, but all men are two faced. Black, White, Asian, Indian, Hispanic. All. Women can be too.
No shit but as an Iranian person who grew up all my life around Iranians and not other races most Iranians are two faced. I'm not talking about other races here and this question was about Iranian people.
@ciitruskiwi you said you refused to date your race. So shits, who else you gonna date? Yourself?
@Opinion OwnerDamn, I'm sad to hear that
@Teahappy obviously other people can be two faced too. Most Iranians are two faced. I have met many people from other races that aren't two faced. I have yet to meet an Iranian person that wasn't.

Iranians aren’t Persians Persians are Iranian
@Tslaveee Persia was renamed Iran in 1935. https://www.factretriever.com/iran-facts
Iran is the native name they were Iranian before the Persian Empire existed. Iranians migrated to Persis and those that remained took on the name Persians. Good heavens
Persians don't necessarily have to be IranianThere are Persian people in India and Afghanistan too
Yes they are, but it's almost impossible to find a Christian Iranian
