A Flower from the East

Unread postby Flower » 1st January, 2018, 9:12 pm

So, here goes nothing.

First name or nickname: If I Anglicise my name, its Joseph / Jose. My nickname is Flower. But in Turkish, its "Çiçek"
Age: 17
Orientation: Gay
How did you find the site, and why did you sign up?: I always liked the idea of forums, I'm active in a forum for more than five years. So I decided to give here a try.
Where do you live?: Where two continents, two seas, east and west meet. It may look like a riddle but its very easy.
Occupation/Studies: High School. I prioritize learning new languages. At the moment, we're learning English and French at the school. Je parle français :) [I wish I had a Spanish teacher though]
Life goals: Nothing. I don't like the way that people thinks about themselves as a "unique snowflake". My only wish, aim, goal [whatever] is to see my country became a place that the new generations of lgbtq people can live free.
In your free time you like to: In my free time, I research Queer history and read a lot. Like, a lot.
What are your talents?: I can learn languages easily. I am a natural. I can memorize everything and I can give speeches. I like politics. [When you live in Turkey, politics become your life as the people are divided to the three; the secularists, the fundemantalist muslims and the separatist Kurds]
An interesting fact about you:
Your personal hero is...: Chris Colfer. He made me realise that we can be more than some effeminate cliche.
Your celebrity crush is...: Hmm, Luke Mitchell.
Your favourite movies are...: The Lord of The Rings and V for Vendetta.
Favourite TV shows/books/songs right now?: Lotr and Game of Thrones. As songs, any Vanessa Carlton song is my favourite.
What is your political philosophy or beliefs?: I support aristocracy because I've seen how uneducated people can harm a country. I also support State Atheism.
Are you a follower of any religion?: I strongly oppose religion.
Drinking, drugs or sobriety?: No.
What animal best represents you?: Wolf. Stronger alone.
Best thing about you?: I combine optimism with sarcasm.
Worst thing about you?: I have to moods: Too happy and too angry. Both is bad.

I typed it to the "nickname" part. :)

Jokes aside, It comes from my original nickname; Numellote [Flower of the West]. It's the elvish name of the Numenorian king Tar Palantir [Ar Inzaladun] who is the last king before the doom of Numenor.

I was going to take "Flower of the West" but then I realized it was too long and I'm not from the west. So I settled on something basic, Flower. :)

I'm not patriotic but no. Because "stronger together".

Yugoslavia, a multicultural nation, was a formidable state until it disbanded. They were a major country. But just because they wanted to be independent, they lost their status in the world. They're like "Monten-who?" Different peoples can live in a country, united as one or they can be alone and weak. You can't break a pile of twigs but you can break a twig.

[Now from on, you can check everything I said from the Internet. It is real and I can prove everything I said so don't come up with "you're commiting hate crime"]

Other than that, yes. The eastern Turkey and western Turkey is different. Like, literally different. Like the Catalonia - Spain kind of thing.

We, the west; produce more than 90% of the total value. İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Konya, Trabzon etc. The east contributes to nothing. Furthermore, state spends more money to there than us. Just to make them richer so they can't cry about the "föşix tece" [A word used by the terroists to slander the goverment. It is now used to riddicule them]

They have lower taxes to encourage people but they don't even pay taxes!

They use illegal electricity, illegal water, illegal gas. Who pays for it? I PAY FOR IT. Legal electric consumption in the east varies from 8% - 30%. The government allows them because it is afraid that they will join the terrorists.

Some of the officers of state who goes to east got murdered. Do you want to know why? Terrorists kill them so they can say "föşix tece didn't sent us teachers so we're uneducated. Föşix tece didn't sent us doctors, so we died" etc.

Some of them refuse to learn Turkish and demand everyone on the east to learn Kurdish. Its like living in America and asking everyone to learn Chinese.

They have higher crime rates because of the illiteracy and poorer life conditions.

They live in a feodal society. They have "aşiret"s and "ağa"s. "Aşiret" is a group consists more than 100 people to 40.000 people. They are all loyal to the "ağa", who is like a king to them. They do what he says.

The ones in the west are good though. They work, they pay taxes, speak Turkish, they're educated etc. I'm not saying all of the east is bad but it certainly is not like what you think about them. Most of the international media does not show this to you.

Hyacint. It takes his name from a gay drama caused by two gods over a mortal boy. Other than that, its beautiful.
