Anyone ever wish they were never born in a Pakistani household.
Why does everything have to be so toxic, behind the doors, and suffocating. I mean, you can't even get out of it without completely cutting off...

Don't blame it on being Pakistani since I've met many Pakistani families who don't have a backwards or nationalist mindset. Get counselling or something

I live in a Sri Lankan household with strict parents so I can relate. I'm not allowed to go to my friend's houses for sleepovers, I can't even hang out with them after school. I've been forced to stay home for the majority of my life. Exams and academics are our only priority, it seems. I do worry that our childhood is being killed off. Like how white people in the movies sneak out to the cinema late, or have their first kiss at teen age.
Our parents promise that if we do our exams well, life will be good in the future. So I guess, we just gotta keep the grind up and keep working hard while they enjoy. We'll have our time later, I hope.
But no matter what happens - you should never say that you hate your own culture. We're actually lucky to even have a culture!

There are also families in western countries who are more toxic than Pakistani families.

It's a problem in your family so stop blaming the whole Pakistani community for that. There are also families in western countries who are more toxic than Pakistani families.
Solid point, guess people just prefer to blame nebulus things that they can't control, as it's easier to do.

Exactly, it's like me blaming a whole country because 1 specific family from that nation did something

What does it get you except self hatred? Pretty poor zero sum 'coping mechanism'

Wow. Genuinely didn't expect so much hate. Guess I can't escape it both privately and publicly now.

They want something to blame, to feel less alienated with themself. A lot of Desi kids compare their lifestyles to Western kids, and feel envious, when in reality, Desi households offer the same level of security and comfort. They'll be more grateful in the future.

are you being mobbed/ganged up on/collectively abused by your family? It happens in white families too, especially eastern european ones

It's the way you worded it 'hate being Pakistani' - it's like spitting on your own culture. White culture isn't any better.
Your parents probably worked so hard to immigrate to a safe country and raise you. I'm not trying to be aggressive, I thought the same as you for a long time.

Modern western/white culture is exponentially better and objectively superior to 5000 or 1400 year old barbaric cultures

You exuded self hatred from the first post and that is what you got in return.

There is no such thing as 'white culture'
Excellence right here folks. You'd be a great scammer
