We are loosing our culture everyday. Because of our strategic position in the world we've been targeted constantly by other groups of people. But we have stayed strong against these people and kept much of our culture intact.
Since the first day Somalis and Somalia has been subjected to people who wanted to enforce their culture on them and the Arabs were the ones who constantly tried, they didn't manage to completely change our culture because that is impossible due to our nomadic lifestyle. Our nomads are our culture and we need to get inspired by them and not look at the Arab nations to develop in the future. Even Westerners and Abyssinians have tried to put their culture in ours and we are now the most vulnerable. With the civil war we have lost a great deal of our culture and historic pieces.
Ask yourself, why are we wearing a ugly macawiis which comes from somewhere in South East Asia when our traditional clothes are more beautiful and similar to our region, the white dress and shirt similar to Abyssinians (Ethiopians AND Eritreans). Why do we speak a mixed foreign language? What happenend to traditional Somali whom is now overrun by disgusting Arabic, English and Italian words like albaab, we already have irid dont we? And what about basic words that we have taken from other languages? They exist in ours but we dont use them, instead we have taken in dumb Arabic words and replaced them.
The only words we've borrowed that make sense are words like baasto because we never had baasto before the Italians. Things we didn't have make sense but even there we could come up with Somali based words...
Our language and culture is dying and it needs to recovered just like the Somali nation is about the be now. We cannot progress in a nation that will be like the Sudan, a nation which lost everything due to Arabs, they are not unique anymore. They were our closest relatives together with the Eritreans and Ethiopians just like Egyptians were before they were overrun by Arabs and their culture.
We need to change Somalia back to the old days, thats the only way we will progress.

What does my name have to do with anything? Your name is Arabic are you an Arab therefore, go change your name to Roble, Liban or something that is from our culture.
Since when did I speak about Islam or being muslim? I simply was talking about our culture and language, I dont remember Islam prohibiting the flourishing of a native culture as long as it can co-exist with Islam's rules. You dont have to change all your ways to be Arabic because Islam came from the Middle East...
The only nacasyahow here is you, duqunyohow, dameer. Look at the Indonesians, they dont change their culture and language to be similar to Arabic. You must be one of the dumbest Somalis, never met anyone more ignorant than you, you must be jareer you danyeer.

Cultures aren't static, they evolve and change all the time. You're nostalgic for something I don't recognised or remember.

I don't think there's anything wrong with having an Arabic name. The Macawiis is just a cooler version of the Scottish kilt LOL. Languages change all the time. The oxford dictionary has new words added on yearly basis lol

"it's a she-male's ass"

LOL

So why are you thinking about it?

You're fascination with my ass is making me uncomfortable LOL

What's making me even more uncomfortable is that you suspect I might be a man, and yet you continue to think about my ass.

You're public displays of homosexual tendencies is creeping me out.

It's also plaguing me with insecurities. I mean we were married. So technical my relationship with you turned you gay.........how depressing LOL

Cultures change and languages change? Ofcourse but they dont replace basic words, words that were already in use and existed. They dont wipe out the whole culture to "embrace" another. Islam is not a culture, its a religion. We live by its rules not it's culture and it frankly doesn't even have a culture, what you duquns are doing is embracing the Arabic culture. We are not Arabs so why are we having more Arabic words than Somali, why are our culture more similar to them when clearly our culture should be more similar to that of Oromos and Afars.
Drop that ugly macawiis and bring back the beautiful white native Somali clothing.

"Cultures change and languages change? Ofcourse but they dont replace basic words, words that were already in use and existed."

Yes they do!

Let's examine the evolution of the English language. The original inhabitants of Britain were mostly celtic speakers. You then had the invasion from germanic tribes and the languages they spoke were categorised as being "Old English"

Have you ever tried reading literature in "Old English", it's basically impossible to understand.

ķc bróšorlufu šu = I love you (according to my translator lol)

Then you move on to the periods of William the Conqueror and you see a shift in the English language to incorporate this influx of French invaders. Historians refer to this period as "Middle English". You observe many french words being added to the language.

The English language we are familiar with is called Early modern English, which was established from 1500 on wards. And even then, the language was heavily influenced by foreigners. We had the emergence of the Renaissance. Language and learning was an important part of European culture. Plus the English were just getting started on their colonial expansionist philosophy. So they took even more words and phrases from countries they colonised.

What I'm basically trying to say in that rather boring history lesson, is that nothing stays fixed. Most of our "cultures and languages" aren't original or unique, we either copied someone else, or we were influenced by someone else.
