Odds and Ends
The ideal woman is fictional

Oh, how strange so that I lived in Astana for two months and never seen any girl, Kazakh or Russian, being forced to anything. I don't deny that there are Kazakhs who remain isolated from society while preserving those costrumbres, but they are not part of the day-to-day of Kazakhstan, so, "in Kazakhstan, girls are forced" is to generalize and shamelessly fetishize.
With the same logic, I could say that all Englishmen are women beaters because some people do it and call it something "cultural".
