The Complexity of Iran

The report of sex change operations in Iran in the NYT this morning is a fascinating revelation of the complexity of that country. I find this article optimistic in that it reveals people inside Iran society (even clerics) dealing with difficult human psychological problems in a modern way. But a curious dichotomy seems to exist in which transsexuals are dealt with more fairly than homosexuals, at least in this anecdotal report. Worth reading.
