The terrible truth about Uzbekistan: traditions, mentality and attitude towards womenPictolic
The lady peek-a-Boo under the name Alfiel posted a post about life in Uzbekistan. The girl honestly told about the cons of their country — the brutal treatment of women, bizarre traditions, hypocritical mentality and many other things.
Surprisingly, this time the commentators are not divided — almost all agreed with the words of Uzbek. And that scares the most.
According to the author, the indigenous people of Uzbekistan are very different from Russians, Tatars, Ukrainians, Koreans and representatives of other nationalities living in the country. The main difference is an outdated tradition. The girl claims that many Uzbeks live "at the level of the middle Ages". This is reflected in their attitude to sex, to work, to the institution of the family in everything... Of the major drawbacks, the author identified the following.
According to the girl, all Uzbeks are very hypocritical and pretentious. All wear masks friendly, polite and kind people, but never tell the truth in the face. Alone behave very arrogantly, meeting with the "brothers" — even worse. They can break the rules on the roads, to go red, stick to girls on the street or to release the sebaceous jokes in the office at work, but when it comes to a showdown, in a fight Uzbek will never climb only if not be sure that his opponent is physically weaker.
Here public opinion (friends, relatives, neighbors, anyone) plays almost a crucial role. That is why in Uzbekistan so few divorces. Local for this procedure is a whole series of humiliations and insults. It is easier to tolerate a bad attitude in the family, but keep it, otherwise "the neighbors will talk about," "what will people say" and so on.
For young people their parents are almost gods. They decide where to study, work, who to marry and when to have children. If the parents say "drop the daughter, it does not suit us", the guy definitely follow their advice. Only a few dare to go against her parents word and to stand on the side of his wife.
This topic could devote a separate article... according to the authors and the comments of other users, marriage is the key event in the life of a resident of Uzbekistan. In 95% of cases they are by prior agreement of the parents. If father and mother decide that their son was ready for family life, after a couple of months he will find a bride, and in the same year he married.
A suitable candidate considered among the daughters of friends and acquaintances. In addition, for girls there is a strict "face control" — that was not fat, not too high, but not low, with light skin (a sign of aristocracy), with big eyes and beautiful long hair. The rest of the candidate will not pass.
The girl that "the privilege" of becoming someone's wife, usually just agrees, because "the parents have already decided everything". After that arrange the wedding — a magnificent celebration with hundreds of guests! It is usually hoarding for decades.
Another necessary requirement to the bride's virginity. In Uzbekistan a woman has no right to have sex before you marry — for it is branded. But guys are usually the Uzbeks go into relationships with representatives of other nationalities and practice their intimate skills with them long before the wedding with the one. But even after their marriage, they continue to "walk left", can live 2-3 families and build a love on the side while the wife can stay at home and serve their parents.
This is perhaps the most painful issue. As you know, women in Uzbekistan, to put it mildly, is not respected and almost considered second-class citizens.
In most cases, the daughter is raised as a servant. The only purpose is to grow and become someone's wife. But after marriage her life is not getting better: often the girl just locked up the house, do not let her go to her parents (not to complain), forced to do all the dirty work, can beat, mock, rape, and even do not feed. If the girl decides to run away, parents are unlikely to accept her back because "shame".
It surprises and scares at the same time, but 90% of commentators agreed with the author:
