One does not simply "become" Pashtun ...

Some traditional Pashto insults, abuses, curses (“khairey” in Pukhto) that are intended to be harmless — and no one takes them seriously or means real evil by them.

Indeed!

Indeed!

Pashtun women’s blogs

For an explanation on what I’m doing and why, please click here.

These blogs were found on a completely random basis. No preference has been, or will be, given to the Pashtun women bloggers from either side of the Durand Line, whether Pakistan or Afghanistan. The only requirement for them to be included in this list is for them to consider themselves Pashtuns or be Pashtun by blood (from either maternal or paternal side). I realize that almost all of the bloggers below are based in the west, except for two (both of whom are inactive now — i.e., haven’t blogged in over 10 months), but this is all I have been able to find within the last month. So if you know any, please don’t hesitate to share their blog links with me in the comment section below or however else you’d prefer. Many thanks!
