Mohandas Gandhi

Yes, this is the real Gandhi.

Tumblr, I can assure you that these posts currently going around about how backwards Iran is aren’t even “kind of” accurate:

Where do you guys come up with this stuff? Believe it or not, Iran isn’t some evil, backwards terrorist state whose women are considered even lowlier than dogs. Did you know Iran has pretty vibrant rock and heavy metal music scenes? Or that the Iranian constitution protects the individual’s right to practice Christianity? Or that Iran has the largest Jewish population in the Middle East, aside from Israel? Or that over 60% of Iran’s college students are women? Or that Iran is home to world famous street artists? Or that 2/3 of Iran’s population is under the age of 30 and they love Tupac and Top Gear?

Iran isn’t nearly as scary as you may think it is. I promise you. The country has its issues, which I touch upon on this blog, but let’s try to keep the blatant misinformation at a bare minimum. These posts are getting weird.
