Default The morals of Cossacks

A few points about the morals of Cossacks
-men refuse to allow other men to touch their wives' hair, under any circumstances. That gives us some idea of their jealous nature.
-those same men, spend a few nights a year being unfaithful to their wives. (the women with whom they have sex on those nights are non-Cossacks).

My question is, do you think this is the chosen culture of Cossacks?
Or is it the chosen cultue of Cossack men?

It is very common among Cossacks to use words like 'slut' to describe more modern women. (so that tells us something about the respect that they have for the non-Cossack women that the Cossack men have sex with when they are being unfaithful to their wives.

On a side-issue, Cossack men, so modern and liberal when it comes to their own adultery (well, you know, old chap, the 10 commandments were written in a different era, eh what what?), are curiously old-fashioned when it comes to homosexuality. Surely not a case of stomach-churning self-serving judgement?

PS: It is especially the Cossack women who are likely to refer to a Westernised woman as a 'slut' for the way she dresses, etc.

What does that tell us about how happy, and at ease, those Cossack women are with their life situation?

I can't even begin to comment on whether it is a Cossack male or Cossack in general attitude. From what little I know it strikes me as an incredibly paternal society, which I find offensive, but it is hardly unique in being such.

I can only speak for myself, in my relationship. Exclusion works both ways, or it doesn't work at all.

lol So you thought this justifies its own thread?

Look, Nick, I told you, even ethnologists, theologists, philosophers, psychologists, and other such learned peole who had lived among Cossacks and studied them for years cannot yet completely understand them and their ways and why they choose to live as they do.

I can't either. My only theory is that due to their culture being repressed severely in the USSR, in their efforts now to recover their old ways, they have regressed, went back into the Past. True for many other peoples here.

What's there to understand apart from a few men who have decided that their feelings matter, and their wives' feelings don't?
May I ask why the women whom they commit adultery witih are never Cossack women?
Oh, and you say it might have regressed?
That must mean that it used to be different?
Have you read that Cossack men were once different? Or is that just a guess?

Not quite that simple.

Because they consider their women clean and pure. That is why a Cossack would never have a family with a woman not of his kind. They feel that their women must not be "contaminated" by sinful pleasure sex. For them is reserved the "holy duty" of reproduction. Because a pure, Christian Cossack child is born of a pure, Christian Cossack mother. Don't ask me, it does sound like Nazism almost, but that is them.

Regressed because in the USSR the government had introduced a more modern ways of life for all the peoples. After 1991, many in Russia and other Republics simply went back to the way things were for them before the 1917 Revolution.

It sounds like hypocrisy of the most disgusting kind. Christians, yet they are happy to commit adultery. But NOT let their wives commit adultery.
Want their children born of pure mothers, yet they themselves can have sex with what they consider to be non-pure women? Get pleasure from women of other ethnic groups, whom they consider impure, just so that Cossack women can be saved for reproduction???
ANd finally, so jealous that they won't let other men touch their Cossack women's hair???

It's not surprising that the Cossack women are bitter (using words like 'slut' about luckier, Western women) They are really calling their own husbands 'sluts' if you ask me.
I hate the USSR, but they've got nothing to do with this.

Surely there are more opinions about this on the forum than three.

I don't judge other people's morality - expecially those who live in non-western nations on the other side of the globe.

That would be very presumptuous of me if I did.
