Not proud: Treating women/girls like dirt...Fortuna tely America, France, Australia and other developed countries have been able to change that primitive mindset little by little...

Proud: Language and Cultural artifacts..

The northern part that is closer to the Chinese boarder, they eat fogs. 

Big market for dog meat in southern China. 

You don't see stray dogs in my country.  Due to poverty, they are stolen to eat or kept as backyard breeders to be sold as chicken meat.

Good one...I find it idiotic that some Hmong are against non-blood related total strangers who happen to share the same last name hooking up but have no problems with blood-related family members hooking up i.e., "cousins"..... :idiot2:

You find it idiotic because you're ignorant and don't know anything about history or culture. Now back to your alternative facts you go.  ;D

Then please explain why it's ok for a Hmong to marry their first cousin just because of different last name and it's not ok to marry someone of the same last name even though they are not related.

Look who crawls back frothy at the mouth... ;D

I know you don't mind marrying your own flesh and blood but some of us do...

It's as bad as claiming no land in the Bay Area and then I posted *facts* with photos showing new homes and developments going up in the Bay Area to prove you wrong, and then you back pedaled...but you can't shake the narrow minded ignorant view so you keep foaming at the mouth and continue to repeat your cycle of ignorance.. That's how "idiotic" that YAK is...;D

I was just in this SF neighborhood not too long ago and guess what, properties are still going up but I know you can't handle facts....YEP FACTS STILL BEAT IGNORANCE!!!  O0:

Watch him back pedaled... ;D

YAK is as bad as BNM when it comes to back pedal...but then again they are in the same narrow minded ignorant clique...Here are their traits: ignorant, hypocritical, narrow minded, make stuff up when their ignorance are proven wrong with facts, and lack integrity and credibility.

Yup, whether it's showing up late or can't get their sh!t together on time as a host...

I had to tell a couple of hosts about respecting others' time as my reason for leaving... ;D

It's very simple, if a host cannot keep time then just say time is 'open' so guests can come and go when ever...
