I agree. I see this a lot where I’m from and so to overcompensate for lack of self worth, many girls become addicted to SM, and things like makeup, clothing, etc. Nothing wrong with indulging in these things once in a while, but to make it your whole identity is concerning.
Another thing that I’ve noticed is that a lot of girls are just getting married so that they can move out of their home. So to be honest, for them they don’t really care about the guy, just as long as he can provide her what she needs, while she goes out with her friends and lives the single life that she couldn’t whilst living with hooyo. Obv not everyone is like this, but it seems like this is becoming a trend.
Like I’ve been to weddings where it was painfully obvious why the girl was getting married; she wanted to escape and marriage was her only way out. In these cases, many of these girls grew up in social housing, and then once married move to condos, so parents should think twice about where they raise their kids and the physical environment that they’re brought up in.
I feel sorry for girls growing up/in their teens in this day and age, there is a lot of focus on social media.
They see all these photoshopped/overly made up women and feel the need to compete. Even adults find it hard not to conform.
This is where parenting comes in. Somali parents need to stop focusing on just dugsi and school and find extra-curricular activities for their girls, not just train them in the art of cooking/cleaning.
Young/teen girls need to be so busy having fun/learning in real life that they don't have time or need to scroll social media apps/sites.
Somali hooyos need a reality check tbh. They neglect their daughters' social lives and wonder why they become depressed, attention seeking or fall victim to predator men, Somali and foreign.
