I know everyone has their own opinions so i was just curious. For example for me:

I like the respect, thats about it. And i guess maybe the fact that family ties are usually strong, atleast for me.

What i dislike is the dumb things the parents ask of you. Im not much into shamanism so i dont like to be around that kind of things, and i hate it how the older ladies be hating on everyone even their own cousins so i guess thats gossip. Also arranged marriges, my parents!!! man i hate that idea.

Easy,

Dowries, unbalanced social family structure/ranks, Hmong adultery rate (which I bet is up, anyone wanna bet? Get your debit card ready!). This pretty much sums up the crap we face today.

It feels like our culture is stuck in a rut.... like we can't moderize ourselves. I'm not saying everyone... just a huge percentage of us tho. Like for me, I can always recoginize a Hmong person from other asians cause most Hmong look FoB. While other asian cultures have their looks and more unique styles that set them apart from...

Is it just me or are we the "bottom" of the asian culture?

And I hate the fact that we are always fighting with each other. Fighting at parties, new years, tourneys... it's just stupid... we're all related.... if we took the time, we'd see it.

Likes- our traditional Hmong clothes, our food, our religion, marriage, and our existence in this society.
Dislikes- lecture 101, older folks who lecture us about not doing bad things and they do it, and family to family respected status.

two things i don't really like

1st. i don't like the fact that we alwase fights. that's like giving us a bad name. plus if hmong ppl jux fight hmong ppl they'll be like im so ready but wen it comes to other they jux get scare and stuff..

2nd. im those shamen stuff and i don't really this one rules about it..

well it is like the girl/daughter can't really do anything. of course cuz one day ur gonna go on with your life and be in different spiritual but then ur their child too rite. i heard this thing from my mom that wen one/both of the parents die the daughter can't really do anything beside paying for those cost of the funerals and the son is the one who sent them to heaven(something like that). thats maybe y wen the parents divorce the daughter are like usually worthless. im a girl so i jux hate it like that. i mean its not fair for the daughter rite.
