Iran and the female factor

A reminder from Timur Kuran (author of Private Truths, Public Lies) of a seldom acknowledged angle that's been in play here:

You can find examples from, e.g., BLM protests in Baton Rouge (despite white men being much more likely to be shot by police than black women) or from protests in other places like Sudan.

It's generally not acknowledged and virtually never described as "privilege". It's a pattern of behaviour that's applicable to soldiers and convicted felons. Will see how it plays out here.
