Why are the persian women so jealous of other women?

Because they have hairy asses

They are such cunts. I went to school with some of them, they are so bitchy and catty. I remember some girls were pissed off that one Iranian girl(who was gorgeous) was dating a hot guy from Italy. They were fucking meanwhile the other Iranian girls were worried that their father would kill them if they sucked/fucked/licked/pumped a "white" guy.

"They were fucking meanwhile the other Iranian girls were worried that their father would kill them if they sucked/fucked/licked/pumped a "white" guy."

Yet those fathers have their Persian carpets on constant window display and practically give it away.

Iran hasn't been called Persia since the 1940s. I wish Iranians would stop the self-loathing already.

R4 I hear you on that one. However the language Farsi is also called Persian in English. In addition,Iranians are proud of the Persian Empire, Persian history etc so on.That being said they don't want to be associated with the fucking maniacs in Iran either!

They resent women who have more freedom than they do...

More than they resent the male family members who have taken away their freedom.

[quote] However the language Farsi is also called Persian in English.

Persian is the umbrella term for the group of languages that comprises Farsi, Dari (as it's called in Afghanistan) and Tajik (in Tajikistan, obviously).

Persian women are too fucking hairy

by Anonymousreply 906/16/2013

R8, you're wrong.

'Persian' is not an 'umbrella term'. Persian is the English word for Farsi.

Farsi (فارسی‎ fārsi) or Parsi is the *Persian* name of the Persian language spoken in Iran, and is sometimes used in English instead of the word Persian when referring to the Persian language.

Dari is a dialect of Persian, but it's not Persian. Tajiks also speak a dialect of Persian, but not Persian.

Persia is to Iran what England is to the United Kingdom. Parts of Iran are Kurdish and Turk

Is calling yourself Persian similar to calling yourself Roman (for an Italian)?

Persian girls are saving themselves for their future husbands. It ticks them off that other girls might get to home plate before they do.

Oh, really, R12? And which part of Iran is 'Persia'? Persia as the former name of the country Iran was derived from the name of the ethnic Persians or Parsi/Farsi people. The ancient Greeks and Romans referred to Iran as Persia, but within Persia, the country was referred to as Iran (which is a derivative of Aryan given that the Aryan tribes who moved into and settled Europe came from what is now modern day Iran and parts of the Caucasus). In the '30s, the Shah formally requested that the international community cease referring to the country as Persia and instead use the name Iran. There is some debate as to whether this was inspired by the Nazi's 'Aryan Fever'. Iran was aligned with Germany during that time and allegedly, a German diplomat made the suggestion.

You cannot draw a comparison between Iran and the UK which is actually comprised of four actual countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales (although N. Ireland could be considered more a region than a country). Iran is not a composite nation. It is not comprised of other countries. There are multiple significant ethnic groups (Azeris, Persians, Kurds, Lurs, etc.), but these are not people who live in different countries.

by Anonymousreply 1406/16/2013

R13, no, because Persian is an actual ethnicity. Similar to Turkish, Kurdish, or Arab. Over 50% of Iranians are, in fact, ethnically Persian.

R8 I have language tapes for Farsi that call the language Persian. R10 Thanks for the backup.

R12 Kurds speak an Indo-European like the Persians do They are descended from the Medes.

The thing that bothers me about women is their insatiable, bottomless need for attention from men. There's this fugly old security guard in my building who always flirts with the fattifraus and they shamelessly lap it up.

They use the male population as a mirror for their worth in the world.

R22 is jealous that the fugly old security guard doesn't flirt with him.

I am a beautiful white woman who was married to an iranian man. I used to have issues with some of the women from iran. It seems the persian ones were the most jealous. I feel they are jealous because white women are the superior women in the world and most sought after and most intelligent. Almost all males want to have a white wife look at hollywood! We are the most dignified, intelligent and beautiful in the entire world. Some men dont even bother to try. We are also the most confident women in the world because we have become successful on our own accord not like asian women who have to have others hand them a silver platter.........

I've had many students from Iran and they all cheated their way through grad school. They view everything and everyone as a product. And, consequently, they have entitlement issues.

It does seem rather pretentious that they keep insisting on calling themselves Persians. They must hate it when people say, "oh, so you're Iranian."

Iranians call themselves Persians in the US because they got a lot of hatred when they used Iranian. This happened after the Iran hostage crisis. Which was also around the time many rich (usually royalists, pro Shah or at least anti mullah) came to the US. Reliably, this worked as most Aneticabs didn't know the Persia /Iran thing.

It's their noses. Same thing with Italian women. Society has taught us to fix these features. If other women are closer to the beauty ideal, they get insecure and envious.

People call themselves Persian because to call one's self Iranian is undesirable here in the U.S. It's like when Hispanics call themselves Latinos. On the east coast, it's still "Hispanic" since we haven't gotten on board with the notion that Hispanic is any way derogatory or an insult (since, of course, it's not).

The problem is the Iranian culture. They're so competitive, they pride themselves of screwing others over at their own expense. Iran is a fairly poor country,so they have serious complexes about prestige, education and wealth. It is so bad that Iranian parents will not accept their child becoming anything less than a doctor, engineer or lawyer and when the kids don't live up to this expectation they go mad, on the flip side the Iranians that make it become so arrogant. Basically it is a society that prides themselves on "One Upping" you. Also, some if not most of the men lack morals, they cheat and act like children expecting to be served by their wife and forget complaining by it, there is none of that. We also can't forget the old world mentality that is imposed on Iranian youth. A lot of Iranians date, they have per-marital sex, they just keep it from family and friends because Iranians do judge harshly and will gossip about their own sister, I've actually seen this. It is a quite oppressive culture and I am not even referring to the Islamic regime being the oppressor, they do a good job themselves. In my opinion they love to belittle others because of their own insecurity and fear of women around their cheating men. I think there is a lot of good in Iranians and their culture, but they have problems just like everyone else, I stay away from Iranians and seldom will do business with them.

It's not just Persian women being jealous of other Persian women- as much as I'd hate to generalize, when the majority is a certain way-- it's hard not to generalize-- but it's most of the Persian culture- it's dog eat dog- if someone is above them- they hate because they're reminded of their short comings- if someone is below them-- the nose goes up in the air-- if you're at the same level-- competition begins- Maybe the Persian culture was once beautiful, but the people have left nothing but "keeping up with the Jones" of the culuture- perfect example: Shahs of Sunset- I loath being Iranian, because of the pretentious, two faced f*%$s that sum up most of the nation.

I work with a Persian woman who's pretty easy going around men, but women? Holy shit! I don't think I've heard her have a conversation with another woman where she doesn't mention her (supposedly) gorgeous genius boyfriend with an amazing job.

It's so fucking obnoxious and she comes across as a total cunt.

I live in the same city as my alma mater, which is a large land grant university. Over the last 3 years, a massive influx of international students have enrolled. The majority are middle eastern students. I can't tell you how many times I have witnessed the women staring rudely at white women. I can't figure out if they are jealous of them or just intrigued.

My best friend teaches at Virginia Tech. He told me an Iranian PhD student (female) has threatened faculty if they don't pass her. She cheats constantly (he sent me "turnitin" reports of several of her papers and they're 97% plagiarized) and she's a liar. He told me this sheepishly because he said, "I'm afraid of her and I'm embarrassed." He also told me, if anything happens to me, "tell the police to question Neda."

I'm stuck back on blondes originating in Persia. I don't think that's true - I think that myth comes from:

Nearly 2,000 years before Homer, during the time of the Proto-Indo-Europeans, blonde hair was connected to the worship of the sun and fire and to the adoration of a yellow dawn goddess. The Persians plaited their beards with golden threads, and the Assyrians powdered their hair with extravagant clouds of gold dust.

Not that natural blondes never appeared in Persia; they have, just not first. At this point, the most natural blondes are in Northern Europe. Blondes produce less melanin, which leaves their skin more susceptible to skin cancer - and Persians have darker olive-type skin than Northern Europeans do.

Iranians chose to call themselves Persians after the Iran Hostage Crisis in the 1970s. There was so much hate targeted at Iranians. And it worked- Americans were too dumb to know they were one and the same. Lol.

R21 has finally explained this behaviour I found very bizarre... I used to work for an Iranian woman who in many ways sent off lesbian vibes. Yet she loved the attention of men, good-looking men and younger men... And gay men. But now I get it. It's just a validation thing. I ran for the hills the day she mentioned Brighton to me.

No such thing as Persian. The ancient persians died out a long time ago. This is just a way for Iranians to avoid admitting their nationality.
