Asked one searcher from a search engine. He (got to be a man- right?) was subsequently directed to my post about Iranian women- which incidentally had no mention of Arab men. However, I can make life easier for him, and answer shortly and to the point:
Yes, they do. Very much indeed.
How can I be so positive? Maybe anecdotes of my grandmother’s travels to Mecka. My grandmother has high cheekbones, slanted almond-shaped green eyes and incredible milky skin- early photos of her show similarity with Ava Gardner. Even now in her seventies, back bent and skin wrinkled (not much!) she still receives proposals of marraige. Despite, or because of her veneration of rich people, she is deeply religious, and goes on pilgrimage to mecka at least once a year, as well as more dangerous places like karbala. Anyway, the point is, she has frequently told of us of the ongoing, insistent and annoying harassment and unwanted attention Iranian women receive at the hands of Arab men in mecka and madina. In fact, as many of you probably know, there are special guards in place in the crowds at mecka to beat off harassers and men who can’t keep their hands to themselves. Come to think of it, the existence of guards shows that it just not Arab men who like Iranian women, it is all men who like all women…
Distressing experiences of my female (ex)colleagues with a highly noxious male colleague of Arab origin is further proof of my positivity.
And finally, sheer jingoism: Iranian women have fairer skins, more delicate figures, smaller noses, more intelligent eyes, better dress sense, better accessory sense (Arab women are disasters when it comes to accessorizing with gold- they simply don’t know when to stop), higher levels of education (I don’t know how to support this assertion- I simply know its true. Thankfully I’m just blogging, not writing for a peer-reviewed journal), than their Arab counterparts. What is there not to like?
