The Iranian wowsers are upsetting footballers too:

This, astonishingly, is over mourning the death of Mohammed's grandson who died in 680AD at the battle of Karbala! Imagine having to publicly mourn the death of Caedwalla of Wessex, who reigned at about the same time.

It's surprising that there is a chess championship for women and that it is considered a "sport".

However, I'm not surprised by that:
"Since talking about her plans to boycott the event, Nazi has faced criticism claiming that she doesn't understand Islamic culture and Iranian society." :facepalm:

Unless it is Chess Boxing it doesn't count as a sport. And yes, Chess Boxing is an actual sport.

Ten points for using the word wowsers. Is there anyone under the age of about 90 (other than you and me, obviously) who would know that word? Or has it made a resurgence in some regional area?

"Nazi has been accused of not understanding Islamic culture or Iranian society."




Oh I think she perfectly understands it and sees how vile it is. and just becaue it is culture does not mean it cannot be bad. If we kept to all culture we would be still sacrificing animals to the gods and settling matters with a good Fight

You's gots to respect other cultures innit. All cultures are of equal worth. Even though some people cut off albino peoples' limbs for magic medicine and sacrifice people to sun gods. *
