An example is here.

What is wrong with securalism?

And I know for a fact that it´s not like all people in Turkey drink alcohol. It is open to personal choice.

A friend here said (s)he didn´t like the Turkish delight... I understand but the thing is there are many different types of it, including some relatively expensive and incredibly delicious ones. But yes, the cheaper and more common ones tend to be not so good, and I don´t like it either. But again, among dozens of different types, there are some really nice ones...

I am Turkish but I have been living abroad for quite a long time, and I would like to have some criticism about Turks myself...

 

One of the major short-comings of Turks is the lack of organization, at least compared to the Modern Western Civillization. Where I live, people organize everything, weeks or months earlier! I already know what I am going to be doing next year now! When I visit Turkey and check my brother´s business logs and computers, all I see is a total mess. This is pretty much the same wherever I go, whatever shade of life I look into. The more serious and formal positions tend to be more organized but a general lack of organization tend to shape up the common man.

 

Another point is language-illiteracy... Turkish is an incredible language. It never ceases to amaze me, with its discipline, richness, logic, and elegance. But its creators are not exactly the people of Turkey today, who are more of a mix between Europe and Middle East. Unfortunately, Turks´ knowledge of Turkish is far from realizing its value and utilizing it in an effective manner. Turks, traditionally, have never been good at learning other languages.

I really don´t like how angry Tukish men can be. This guy I have been talking to for a couple of months gets so jealous (Especially over Facebook) when a guy even talks to me. He threatened to never talk to me again because I was in the same picture as another guy. I never know how to show him how ridiculous he is being when he yells at me for these little things. So yeah I really don´t like their anger and jealousy.

Not all Turkish men are jealous.  This guy just sounds like a jerk.

Watch out girl. It may sound flattering but it is dangerous. As a rule of thumb any relationship you have with other men in open and public shouldn´t be a reason for an attack of jealousy.

 

Jealousy is human and we all feel it sometimes but normal people keep it under control somehow.

“With a total of 72 media personnel currently detained, of whom at least 42 journalists and four media assistants are being held in connection with their media work, Turkia is now the world’s biggest prison for journalists – a sad paradox for a country that portrays itself a regional democratic model,” Reporters Without Borders said in its annual roundup.
