      Do you eat kebab?
      Shut up. There are lots of Turkish people who haven't eaten Kebap. It's mainly a part of our fast food cuisine abroad served by our diaspora.

        I imagine the 'do u vote conservatives' question would have ticked you off.

        Ironic. You're questioning another's 'Turkishness' when you refer to kebap as a foreign person would. For your information 'kebap' is merely the Turkish word for 'kebab'.

        I hope you're not inferring that class is determined by one's level of vocabulary. A 'diaspora' is simply 'the movement, migration, or scattering of people away from an established or ancestral homeland'.

        i didnt really understand what being conservative had to do with being turkish but i was talking about "what makes you turkish other than your biological preferences"

          I'm not sure what that means exactly. Perhaps which race we prefer to date or something? :hmmmm2:

          luk i didn't know that yeh, so just allow?

          oyoyoy, your vocab is next level bro, 'inferring'; and that.
          I'm only inferring that a lower class may not prioritise speaking in Recieved Pronunciation all the time, therefore adapting to a local subcultural language. But it doesn't mean they can't speak it.

            What makes you think I speak in this so-called 'Received Pronunciation'? :curious:

            A Turkish breakfast, contrary to your belief, is 'put everything on the table: salad, cheese, olives, eggs, sucuk, etc. and some bread'.



            Oh, and don't forget the tea.
