From Buzzfeed:

  • The notion that the nation of Iran is, believe it or not, home to attractive human beings is indeed surprising.
  • “Look how exotic and strange they are!”
  • What’s the implications behind the choice of the possessive “their”? If the author intended to refer to ‘the women of Iran, the country,’ he’d have used the singular “its”. Instead, he chose the plural “their.” Read into this as you will.
