Irony 101

Posted: November 10, 2010 in Uncategorized

UN Women. Devoted to the promotion of women’s rights.

Iran sitting on the committee.

IRAN!  Where women accused (?!?) of adultery are stoned to death.

They would be one of the 10 Asian countries on promoting and defending women’s rights and autonomy? Unless East Timor gets in, of course.

Granted, lots of those countries have a spotty record at best, regarding women’s rights, but c’mon Iran?

If this goes through it only proves (again) that the UN is pretty much just a photoshopped old skank, but an old skank nevertheless.

Who me? Cynical?

    Wow…I join you in utter amazement. That is wrong on so many levels.

  2. geewits says:

    I would think Iran women would be seriously interested in promoting women’s rights. They really really need some. Am I missing something here?

    You’re not cynical, you’re honest about a thoroughly morally bankrupt, long past its due date, organization. We should really be proud, we Canadians, that we were rebuffed for the Security Council.

  4. Jazz says:

    Em – Indeed

    Geewits – They have a dismal record for women’s rights. And the women won’t be on the council – Women’s rights activists go straight to jail and do not collect $200 over there.

    Ian – We were so naive when the UN was set up. I can’t believe people actually believed it would work.

    I’m never getting over “photoshopped old skank” as referring to this Fine Institution. Never.

    it does seem beyond ironic and ridiculous.
