Continuing on the police action in Iran trying to force all women into BMOs, the BBC reports that the the crackdown includes young men, too:
Young men are being cautioned for wearing short sleeved shirts or for their hairstyles.
The women continue to be relentlessly harrassed.
And now comes the really misogynistic and truly bizarre part,
One shopkeeper selling evening dresses told us the moral police had ordered him to saw off the breasts of his mannequins because they were too revealing.
He said he wasn’t the only shop to receive this strange instruction.
The shopkeeper “sawed off the breasts of the mannequins on his window display and covered them with sticky tape”, at the insistence of the police, and the BBC has a video.
Makes one wonder what the Sanity Squad would say, doesn’t it?
Here are more photos on the fashion crackdown.

Update, Monday 30 April: Welcome, Michelle Malkin readers. Please visit often. Michelle correctly points out,
Activists say that while world attention has focused on the West’s standoff with Iran over its nuclear program, the abuses of women’s rights have intensified, using fear of a U.S. attack as a pretext.
I see their minds (top half of head) are sawed off, too.

Amazing. I’m sure heads will be next.
If you don’t mind, I’d like to link this story.
I thought that, too. And even then, what’s left of the heads is covered with fabric.
I’ll be much obliged if you link to the story.
good post, but that thought balloon BS hovering on the links is ANNOYING AS HELL.
