Clowntime Is Back: John McCain's First Act As President? Shut Down Gitmo | Main | Dennis Kucinich, 9/11 "Truther"

Man-Free Tourist Island Planned

Amanda Marcotte just had a stroke-inducing orgasm. She's expected to recover in time to further demolish John Edwards' chances at the presidency.

Bonus for her: It's being planned by that peaceable nation that the thuggist western patriarchs are always picking on, perhaps for being too feminist.

Iran plans a female-only island to boost tourism in a northwest province, the Tehran-e Emrouz newspaper on Wednesday quoted a local official as saying.

It will be on the Urumiyeh lake in Western Azerbaijan province, a municipality official identified only as Aghai said.

Under Iran's strict Islamic law, mixing with men in public is forbidden. Strict sex segregation actually protects women rather than restricting their rights, officials argue.

"There will be no men on the Arezou (Wish) island. Public transport, restaurants and other facilities will be staffed only by women," Aghai said.

Sounds like Iran has been hired on to do some guerilla marketing for the much-delayed, Joss-Whedon-abandoned Wonder Woman movie.

Which is just a bad idea, by the way. Wonder Woman is an okay character, I guess, but it's like making a romantic comedy just for men.

A lot of women will claim they love Wonder Woman, but really, you guys going to line up to buy tickets on its opening weekend? Or are you going to see whatever horrific movie Hugh Grant has stumbled into?
