This is a wise move by the Iranian government, highlighting the tenants of Islam.
Islamic dress code is not to be applied only to woman but man must also remain pious.

Men obsessing over looks is just as detrimental to the cohesion of society as woman doing so.

We are all one we must strive for oneness not separate ourselves from each other with fashion wars.

In other words we prefer everyone to look and act the same and be autobots and bow to the insanity that is Islam.

It is only inner beauty that separates us, it is wisdom and skills that we should focus on to make out selves stand out.

What benefit does fashion bring to society?

What hair product did Einstein use when formulating e=mc2 ?

Fashion only detracts from more noble pursuits like Science, mathematics, poetry, music and art.

The fanatic radical Islamic Iranian regime is using the stone age Shariya laws of illiterate nomads in the Saudi Arabian deserts of the 7th century to determine what should be the length of Kumeinie style beard of every Iranian men. Furthermore, the Iranian women are ordered to hide their hair and faces behind the Islamic mask and black dress called Burqa which proves that Iran is falling to the dark stone ages mentality of the barbaric nomads which is the culture of modern Islam.
In addition, Iran air access is very limited putting the Iranian people under siege.
The Iranian people have more reasons to hate their radical islamic madman dictator that was able to push Iran and its economy to chaos and anarchy. Why would the Iranian people that are not fanatic radical Islamic terrorists like the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Hamas and Hezbollah agree to pay hefty price because of the barbaric dictator Ahmadinajad and the fundamentalist Ayatollah Khumenie that push for destruction of the civilized world with Armageddon and holocaust of the Jews? Obviously, the Iranian people are losing their basic human rights and freedom to the evil radical islamic Ahmadinajad who uses the darkest Shariya rules to deny basic human rights of women and minorities. Will the Iranian people stand up to the evil leader of the islamic terrorists all over the world and remove him from his rule as brutal dictator of Iran? Clearly, with the international support the Iranian opposition within Iran the days of Ahmadinajad as the savage and vicious immoral dictator of Iranian people are numbered as he will be sent as martyr to islamic hell where he belongs.

Your angry post has no basis in reality.

Iran has moderate Islamic dress code woman must only wear Hijab, a head scarf.

Both men and women must dress respectfully and modestly that is all.

Yet your religion restricts expression of poetry , music , and art. Restricting what a person wears or how they wear their hair is just a furtherance of fascist thought. One should be allowed to express those beliefs freely and let the chips fall where they may. Einstein would wholeheartedly agree.
The hard lesson that your mullahs have failed to realize and the Christian faith learned the hard way during the Renaissance and Reformation is that stifling thought and expression leads to stagnation and then rebellion. Einstein would never have been allowed to express e=mc2 because he was not a muslim nor did he believe in a personal god.

According to who? To what degree? To what measure? You see, you can't get away from it. Someone or somebody is telling you how to think, how to speak, how to dress, and what to believe. Your thoughts are not your own, your words are not your own, your taste in clothing and hair cuts are not your own.

You prove my point. His hair cut had nothing to do with his accomplishment so why bother telling him how to wear it?

I have to say, I agree with Dave here. A person's hairstyle has nothing what-so-ever to do with how far he or she goes in life.

The Iranian government is seriously bordering on fascism with it's methods of depriving the people of basic human choice. Also, the words that they used, "decadent western haristyles", display signs of classic xenophobia.

In America over 11 million students are affected by school regulated dress codes and uniforms. About 25 percent of schools participate in an approved schoolwear policy.

Why does America enforce Uniform for students?

What advantages or dis advantages school uniform bring?

Does school uniform restrict learning?

If Uniform oppressive why not first campaign to save your own children?

Key word here " students " The majority of the codes have to do with language on t-shirts and sweats that are shall we say "colorful" When one reaches the age of consent then whatever they wear is up to them. You, on the other hand, control adult choices. There simply is no comparison.

If Western counties are banning Burqa is this not the slow road to a dress code?

What item of clothing will western government ban next?

If so concerned about dress code you must campaign to stop western governments going down the slippery slope of telling people what they canít wear (burqa)?

Or do you support western Burqa ban and why?

You are the people who require the dress code. It mystifies me that now you use that argument to attack western nations considering the outlawing of such dress yet your defending the outlawing of dress that does not meet your standards. You can't have it both ways.

I did not say I supported or did not support Burqa, in Iran burqa is very uncommon and is not promoted by government.

What I did ask was why Western governments ban it?

Can you please answer why ban burqa?

The global market for cosmetic chemicals is around $19.2 Billion.

Couldnít this money be spent better?
Hair products, what's actually in this stuff and aside from the effects on humans, what's the impact on the environment? It not only sits in your hair and on your skin, but once you shower, it winds up down the drain in into our waterways.
For starters, most come in elaborate packaging; cans and plastic spray bottles. The plastics will be with us for a long time to come; breaking down into toxic chemicals that poison the earth and groundwater. Most of the plastics are made from crude oil; the industry which has wreaked so much havoc on this planet.

Hair wax/fudge

PVP/PA Copolymer - petrochemical
Polybutene - used as pesticide inert, with potential toxicological concerns
Tribehenin - animal studies show broad systemic effects at high doses
Phenoxyethanol - animal studies show sense organ effects, neurotoxin, carcinogen
Diazolidinyl Urea - Known human immune system toxicant, irritant, neurotoxin in animals
Butylcarbamate - animal studies show brain and nervous system effects at moderate doses

Hair gel

Polyquaternium-11 - possible carcinogen, respiratory toxin
Panthenol - animal studies show broad systemic effects at high doses
Benzyl Nicotinate - Broad systemic toxicity in animals
Zinc PCA - Persistent, bioaccumulative in wildlife
Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate - May contain harmful impurities
Phytic Acid - animal studies show brain and nervous system effects at moderate doses
Dipropylene Glycol - animal studies show sense organ effects at moderate doses
Polysorbate 20 - animal studies show reproductive effects at high doses
Methylchloroisothiazolinone - human immune system toxicant
Tetrasodium EDTA - animal studies show sense organ effects at low doses
Methylparaben - possible carcinogen, neurotoxin, skin irritant

Hair mousse

Isobutane/Propane - human toxicant
VP/PA Copolymer - petrochemical
Panthenol - animal studies show broad systemic effects at high doses
Hydroxylsolexl-3-cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde - animal studies show sense organ effects at moderate doses
Butylphenyl Methylpropional - Possible human immune system toxicant. Animal studies show respiratory, reproductive brain and nervous system effects
Alpha Isomethyl Ionone - Possible human immune system toxicant
Polyquaternium-11 -- possible carcinogen, respiratory toxin
Oleth-20 - animal studies show sense organ and skin effects at low doses

So far as I can research the ban, as you already know, is for the public display of the Burqa. Using public transportation, gov't buildings etc. This is similar to the fact you can't be wearing a ski mask while walking into a public facility. It all has to do with security.
More importantly, this is a clash of cultures. One, middle eastern, having a history of demeaning women as second class citizens and the western culture that has come out of the "dark ages" and in its most recent past elevated women to an equal footing as men. And being a cultural clash and not a religous one,as a Burqa is not a requirement of Islam, it seems to me that once you have made the decision to live in a western country you would assimilate and adhere to that nations culture. If not then you should have never made the change.
In most cases when a female from a western country visits a middle eastern country they are required to cover their heads in deference to that culture. Why is it so different for a female from the middle east living in a western nation to not wear a Burqa in deference to that nations culture.
You see, you want your cake and eat it too. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Etc. Etc. Etc.

I see. Now that you cannot defend the haircut ban with any common sense and rationale you attack make-up? Please I am not even going there. This is a typical trick of those who cannot adequately debate an issue and try and deflect the arguement to another topic. Thanks for playing.
