Why would any Iranian man want to have a sex change? Surprisingly, it’s permitted there, but he would LOSE many of his legal rights. Imagine a country that resists gender mingling but allows gender reassignment! (We wonder if it’s legal for WOMEN also.) A man would become half of what he used to be. Of course he’d be veiled from head to toe, which would be convenient for the surgical process but he couldn’t show off anything after it was complete. It’s hard to imagine gender reassignment in Iran but the subject came up when four members of the Iranian women’s soccer team turned out to be men or some variation thereof. Now they’re all being tested.
