This Is What Happens When A Judge Sentences A Man To Dress Up Like A Woman

This has got to be one of the best dressed protests in the world. It all started when a judge in Iran sentenced a bunch of criminals to wear traditional women’s clothing in public to humiliate them. Some of the Kurdish men of Iran were not impressed by the judgment and started a Facebook campaign. The men posted pictures of themselves wearing dresses to protest against the idea that being a woman is something to be ashamed of. Here are some of my favorite pictures. You can check out lots more on the Kurd Men for Equality Facebook page.

It is safe to say that the wise words of Muhammad Ali stands the test of time. Widely considered to be the greatest heavyweight boxer the world has ever seen, the legacy of Ali extends far beyond his pugilistic endeavors. Throughout his career, he spoke out about racial issues and injustices. The brash Mohammed Ali (or who we once knew as Cassius Clay) was always on point with his charismatic rhetoric— despite being considered arrogant at times. Even so, he had a perspective that was difficult to argue with.

As a massive boxing fan—and a huge Ali fan—I have never seen him more calm and to the point then in this recently posted BBC video from 1971. Although Ali died in 2016, at 74 years old, his courage inside and outside the ring is legendary. In this excerpt, Ali explained to Michael Parkinson about how he used to ask his mother about white representation. Even though the interview is nearly 50 years old, it shows exactly how far we need to come as a country on the issues of racial inclusion and equality.
