I'm very sorry to hear about that, communism is a real crime..

No human deserves to be treated that way!

Wow, very interesting replies! Thanks everyone! 

I would Also like to add, it will be great if you write your county name with the explanation to know where you are from :) 

 

For me, I grew up in Baghdad, Iraq and our taboos are it's unacceptable to:

-Show public affection.

-wear TOO revealed clothes and showing too much skin.

- Alcohol, sex, drugs are VERY VERY taboo subjects. 

-Sitting cross-legged with your shoe /foot in the direction of someone’s face is considered rude.

-Do everything with the right hand. Eat, touch, present gifts...you name it. The left hand is actually used for bodily functions. so it is considered unclean, no matter who you are and what culture you identify with.

-Pork products in general!

-Homosexuality 

-pre-marital sex

 

That's all i can think of for now, thanks again! :)

Apropos of the horse meat scandal, I'd like to add that it's not at all taboo here in Sweden where it's sold on the supermarket shelves along with reindeer and moose meat!

 

I'd say that dissing Astrid Lindgren (author of Pippi Longstocking) is highly taboo in Sweden.
