It's a real problem, but worse for the girls I think. I've overheard some conversations and the stuff that comes out of their mouths....wow. Then they act so nice and warm when the lady is in the room, they put on a good show.
Oh old Somali women are the worst
when it comes to things like that.
They'll act really nice about you to your face, then BAM. The rumours start that you have been up to this or that and ofc girls get it worst. Boys always get the most freedom *envy*
And don't get me started on the spying. You know how Somalis are, we're all related one way or another. You have to be wary when out incase someone "reports" back
That can't be good....I've seen some nasty stuff. I knew a Somali girl whose mother threatened to commit suicide if she refused to marry some dude back home. Off to Somalia she went, smack bang in the middle of the school year. Shame came back married and pregnant with her first child. She's 19.
Counting down the days till I leave for Uni then I'm basically free cause I've moved out.
But it can't be good, emotional blackmail is horrible but something perfected by most Moms.
I honestly can't begin to tell you how pissed off that has made me.
Oh believe me, I understand how angry you are because I'd wager it pretty much reflects my feelings on the topic.
But to give my Mom her due, she encouraged my older brother to go University and get a degree, she would never allow him to drop out (she'd tear him a new one lol)
