Apologies to "everything is crypto fascist lad", and derailing an emo thread but I have yet to meet the eskimo who didn't describe a family life that sounded abusive and controlling.
I had a friend in collage who all of her communication with others was read by her older brothers, I have friends in their mid-20s who rented a 2 bed room house, to pretend they slept in separate beds to their parents, and ended up getting married, only to stop having to deal with their parents bullshit.
I even had to take part in a charade myself once when I stayed at my girlfriends parents in turkey, we had to sleep in separate rooms, and I was just a friend. We are both in our mid-30s.
The honour culture really distresses me. It seems to put pressure on people where the only options are to deal with restrictions on their freedom and self-expression everyday (at the very least by just maintain lies about their behavior out of fear and 'repect') or to completely disconnect from everyone they know.
