I was in Iran either earlier in spring this year or summer/spring last year and I could not access the website without using a VPN, I don’t know if it has to do with the fact that my phone is not purchased in Iran or not.

Perhaps it's a subjective matter whether someone finds a statement regarding a person disrespectful which in turn is related to how the reader sees the person in question to begin with.
I personally, as well as many people in Iran, consider both ayatollah Khomeini(رضي الله عنه) and ayatollah Khamenei to be among the forerunners of humanity (other than the infallibles) as well as other scholars and marjaee who have dedicated their entire lives to Islam and serving its followers. So I also consider it disrespectful when I read comments indirectly calling them munafiqs by throwing out wild accusations/claims regarding their "true" agendas.
Similarly to how kafirs discuss Rasulullah(S) as compared to how Muslims discuss Rasulullah(S), what we consider disrespectful with regards to discussions regarding him will most likely be different because we think differently about Rasulullah(S) even though both parties are discussing the same human.
And no, before any brilliant mind jumps the gun, Im not saying that they equal Rasulullah(S).
There's also a physical hijab for men but the laws are much more chill. I don't think it's reasonable to comapre them both in one thread. Also, it's easier for guys to abide by the sharia in regards to their dressing (talking purely from a fiqhi perspective). The OP is a brother and is talking about everything from his own perspective, in case his thinking needs to be guided.
I'd even go as far as saying that in the future the reverts should have their own mosques where they can make the decisions and where the youth from cultural backgrounds can also comfortably join. Current mosques are very cultural and they don't give the authority to others where positive changes which are needed can be implemented.
Teachers and school adminstrators are being "forced" to turn over absentee and attendence rosters to the intelligence service.
