Like other Iranian women whose stories I have shared at I Heart Iran, these girls also get it! These riot girls “push boundaries” by “shamelessly sharing stories/escapades.” I am so proud of them for questioning the assumptions and breaking the taboos of the Iranian-American culture not only for the community but also for the non-Iranians.
Let’s laugh with them first, but then look beyond the language and humor in order to learn from these girls. At Sex and Fessenjoon I’ve seen how important it is to love and respect one’s heritage--so seriously to care to write about the culture, but not serious enough to not to be able to humor it.
Make sure to check them out, explore their stories, join the convrsation and of course show your Heart for me, your gholam--humble servant--here.By Parisa Saranj, Aslan Media Columnist
