Who the hell has got time to read a whole article (after all, posted by none other than our own Sensei ) word for word? I skimmed through it and focused on her own "tl;dr" summary at the end.@SomaliSpotter
decietful? lying bastard? What did he lie about? he told her upfront about it , some parents tell their kids that they are taking them to dubai and they end up in somalia.
hellhole? mogadishu very peacefull and has the most security in all of somali region. everyone ive seen there speaks highly of their stay and experience
What threats? he never threathened her with FGM! How can you threaten someone with fgm , have you ever heard of someone threathenig a person with fgm? I will cut you if you dont do this? Wtf!
She is causing a Fgm hysteria! .
saying crap like this feeds and gives life to her bulshitt!
Nonetheless I forgot to mention that my dad swears that this decision was made here and that he thinks he has Alzheimer's due to his horrible memory at 50 and his constant shakyness. I know he has been forgetful and shaky but I'm worried that the sickness is being used a manipulation trick.
Tl;dr: FGM is no longer a threat, but being forced to live here for 1-3 years is. Uncles and grandpa are arguing for me to leave my siblings here and finish high school and then comeback.
Edit for. Clarification: I am in Somalia right now
It's due to those two points why I assumed what I assumed. After all, we are taking her words for everything since her father and relatives aren't here to defend their positions (I know, that makes the whole argument weak. But again, we should either take it whole in or disregard its entirety, innit?).
And yes, Mogadishu (and a lot of places in the South) are still hell holes. It is exactly one month and 1 day today when a devastating explosion at the gate of Jazeera Hotel in Mogadishu claimed the lives of 13 people and injured 3X that number. On top of that, you have the constant fear & threat from Al-Kabaab and innocent residents of the city that die in the hands of the so-called African "peace keepers" so often. So yeah, Xamar & the South are still hell holes. And most importantly, I was born and am from the South so don't get it twisted, kid.
