Shocking! Eight Members Of Iran’s National Female Football Team Are Men

The International Olympic Committee’s decision to allows biological men to play on women’s teams if they believe they are women trapped in men’s bodies has inspired some countries to attempt to exploit the policy, as it was announced on Thursday, that eight members of the Iran national female football team are men.
Confirming the story, Iranian official, Mojtabi Sharifi, admitted that the men were waiting for sex change operations.
Reacting to this, soccer authorities have ordered that all 8 men undergo gender testing to determine their levels of testosterone. This isn’t the first time the Iranian women’s team has fielded men. There were rumors that the players were men in 2011 and random gender checks in 2014 revealed some of the supposed women were men.
The problem is complicated by the Iranian culture which prohibits women from traveling unless they are given permission by their husbands or fathers. For example, Niloufar Ardalan who was recently prevented from accompanying the soccer team to a game in Malaysia because her husband would not allow her to travel.
