This applies to men but majority that do it are girls. Just search up #Mogadishu on Instagram and look at the girls; 60% are visibly bleached. I blame this 100% on the "wahabi ictisaam" elite who control all the sectors and businesses from telecommunication's to your hotels. These guys usually hire lighter skin girls throughout Somalia. All of the products they sell are hung with fliers of Indian models because according to them you can't model Somali girls since it's haram? Somalia has the best looking women in the world in my opinion with the most models overseas but once in the country everything is modeled by hindi. Wallahi I seen this shit in tuulos even in Bacadweyn, bur salah, and of course the big cities.

None of this was an issue when we modeled our own products until the civil war. Fun fact, the niqaab is worn a lot to hide darker skin from the sun or to hide bleached skin from the pain. Wallahi there was a time we used to make fun of cad cads calling them dhagacas and carab waa naag which isn't right but now we worship them and try to make our skin their skin.

Tell me why skin bleaching is more common in Somalia with no cadaans than it is in America for diaspora somalis? it's obvious wallahi, these guys destroyed us to the extent we're worshiping hindi and carabs.

Just make it illegal it’s haram either way since it harms your skin. Skin bleaching in Somalia’s climate will only cause skin problems like Skin Cancer and other diseases.... god forbid
A black market for it will exist like how people drink khamri. We need a somali cinmea and ban bollywood. We need somali models instead of hindi ones all over the city. No more looking up to these people.

Our icons in those industries will be average natural Somalis inshallah so that their is no “White Is Supreme” propaganda. The government should own the media just in case they do that type of stuff...

That's why Eritrea, and Ethiopia don't have this issue. Inshallah we won't be like Sudan were even the mean bleach themselves trying to look Arab. I'd rather look like Halima Aden instead of Kenza fourouti.

Been. Somalis have always favoured light skin over dark skin nothing to do with wahaabiyo
Been. Somalis have written more poems about beautiful dark skin "maariin" since we were geeljire. Just look at the elite class in Xamar back then, the women are way darker than today. Literally no skin bleaching. Dhagacas and carab waa naag is what was the norm.

What does naag have to do with the skin? Somalis also say "habeen iyo madoow baa habaaran". Secondly "cadde" is a compliment while calling someone madoow is an insult .

How come you only apply logic to my post and not his:denilook:

Because I was in somalia and 70% of the girls that wear niqaab that I'm related to wore it due to skin bleaching. Most of the girls are told that you can't go outside cause you'll get dark and can't get married. There is a reason why no skin bleaching existed before these ictisaam elite took over. Not even just that they sold our girls as maids to arabs.

I don’t even feel sorry for them as harsh as it sounds. I’ve seen it first hand living in Somalia. They put themselves through so much trouble creaming their arms and legs with bleach and slapping on gloves afterwards to sleep on. They can’t even leave the house without a niqab because their cheeks will burn off going bright red. All that so they can be noticed. Niin jeclaa, I blame somali men back home for this.

By that I meant they bleach for man. No one can tell me otherwise.
True but they still chose to do so, don’t baby a bunch of adults simple. What are they babies? Overall skin bleaching should be illegal it is also haram!
