  1. Does Islam allow contraception? My old team (the Roman Catholics) absolutely hated it Edit - never mind, I can Google it myself...

    General Neutral Pronoun

    I agree. I think a lot of discrimination stems from this - some people can not relate to a situation that some other person is dealing with and so they assume that this situation doesn't really exist or is an invented psychological issue or something like that. They are just projecting their own lack of understanding on to someone else, often in a damaging way. I guess everyone does it to some degree until enough people push back against it.

    Masturbation issue

    Something I have seen on other forums is spoiler tags, generally used for talking about a movie in such a way that you don't spoil it for others - you have to click the spoiler text to see what was written - like this, maybe it's already here... You guys could use it to warn the ladies of unladylike language ahead.

    Close-Up by Kiarostami is fantastic

    That sounds like an exceptional "leisure centre"

    #56 Do You Get Enough Exercise?

    I walk a lot, I think living in a city helps with this. 6km or one hour walk to work, although I don't do this every day I do still end up walking a good bit just getting around. I go to the gym too but I'm not very diligent about that. Cakes/chocolate/pastries/muffins these are my big weakness, but I got my cholesterol checked recently and it's fine so I can carry on munching those for another while.

    Mixed Bathing

    I've seen this loads of times. At swimming pools here in Ireland the trend is towards having individual changing cubicles and open/mixed showers where nudity is not allowed and the visibility and openness discourages any inappropriate behavior. There are still more old fashioned ones where the changing areas are segregated and people get naked. It is not unusual to see a father and little daughter in there. I think little children think nothing of nudity in that kinda context (getting changed) and are not bothered by it at all unless they have been primed to be bothered by it.
  8. Every week or two I run the number 1 blade all over my face and head - job done

    Or they might be just vain and self-obsessed human beings

    Undercut Type of Haircuts Allowed?

    I'm going bald too but I couldn't care less. As far as I understand it I will be completely irresistible once the process is complete. The barber told me that I should stop wasting money getting my hair cut, just shave it off. What happens if Western culture takes a fancy too long gray beards and this long black kimono things?

    Masturbation is killing me

    If you must stop then stop because your religion tells you that you should - not for fake garbage reasons like this! At least that way you're not fooling yourself
  13. I swim quite regularly. You really don't see that much when you are swimming, maybe just the slightest glimpse for a split second as you pass by. Your field of vision is quite restricted when you are swimming in the pool, at least if you go at times where the pool is dedicated to lane swimming. It's the filth of the water I worry about.

    Men can't stand in the shade during hajj

    I get sunburned just watching the weather forecast but fortunately for me I will never do hajj.. Three days of intense middle east sun is not to be taken lightly!

    Men can't stand in the shade during hajj

    What about heat stroke and skin cancer?
  16. Fair enough. We won't agree on it but my view is that people installing themselves in power and hanging on to it at all costs is a form of something-has-gone-wrong.
  17. I'm not sure what you are asking me anymore. I am not suggesting Iranians don't deserve referendums, I am suggesting that anyone should have one if the circumstances are right
  18. I agree with the second point, which is why I asked about the idea in the first place
  19. My suggestion was to have a referendum!
  20. If people said we do not want an Islamic government then there would be no need to immediately install president Maryam of the MEK. There could be a long transition with the current crowd managing it in an orderly fashion
  21. Yeah I guess they has to be some point where you stop asking the same question over and over and get on with it. Although it seems like a reasonable idea when something gets very divisive and confused e.g. Brexit.
  22. I don't get it! We have referendums (referenda?) At the drop of a hat
  23. Maybe another referendum on the Islamic Republic would be a good idea since I guess most Iranians alive now did not vote in 1979. It might undermine the strength of rumours and speculation
