Absolutely, hence my reference to the complete nonsense of the so-called Right On LBGTQI+ policies. Kurds are fiercely conservative; it's no coincidence that more Turkish Kurds vote for the pro-Islamist AKP (Erdoğan's party), rather than the pro-Kurdish but liberal HDP. The related PKK (Kurdish Workers' Party) are a murderous Marxist organisation who drew their strength from the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s...and still maintain an 'Embassy' in Moscow. Since 1984, they have killed about 40,000 people in TurkeyIt's very easy to big up the likes of the YPG as "left wing revolutionaries" along the lines of anarchists , communists, Marxists , socialists but Kurdish society is very conservative. Try getting a drink in the region or even worse try talking to a woman and see how far you get.
