was @sweden 2013-10-07 to 2013-10-14

Hello Twitterverse!

I'm Kaveh and I have bipolar disorder of the ultra-rapid cycling type.

I was born in northern Sweden 25 years ago, but I was raised in Malmö, also known as the dirty south where I spent most of my days, chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool, playing some football outside of the school. I hope you got that.

I'll probably be pretty angry during this week. I'm actually angry quite often. Maybe it's because I'm bipolar, or maybe it's because I love long rants which makes me seem even more disturbed than I am.

Educated at the university of Lund but now the CMO at a wholesale for restaurants. My parents are from Iran. They arrived in Sweden a couple of weeks before I was born and I'm one of those whom don't feel at home neither in Iran or Sweden. The classic second generation immigrant kid. I'll probably tell you some stories about growing up as a bipolar immigrant in Sweden when I'm not busy ranting about disturbing things Swedish people do.

I hope not too many unfollow this account this week! If you unfollow this account you're welcome to follow my other account @kavehk but that wouldn't make sense since you're unfollowing this account which means you're unfollowing me and following me again at my private Twitter and you don't want that since you unfollowed me here.

**** The End ****

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:22 p.m.

Thank you and goodbye.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

For those wondering; my private account is http://twitter.com/kavehk">@kavehk but all tweets are in Swedish

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

It was a pleasure tweeting for http://twitter.com/sweden">@sweden. I bet the next curator will be great.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

With that said; I am a Swede. I love Sweden. It wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

That is also Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

Racist attacks occur, and so does attacks on Jews. Women with hijabs are assaulted and there’s still widespread sexism.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

But as many other countries we have issues with racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and sexism.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:21 p.m.

Yes, we do have blonds, IKEA, ABBA, Volvo and meatballs. And yes, you often mix us up with Switzerland.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:20 p.m.

So when I got this platform I really wanted to talk about the image of Sweden as much as I could.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:20 p.m.

Let’s make something clear: There is no Muslim army invading Sweden, raping all women pillaging our villages.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:20 p.m.

They report about immigration, Islam, riots and violence is “threatening the Swedish model”.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:19 p.m.

Sweden’s alleged problems with multiculturalism.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:19 p.m.

But when reporting about troubles in Sweden the foreign media mostly focus on one thing:

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:19 p.m.

There’s nothing wrong with that.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:18 p.m.

The “Swedish model” is in many countries viewed as something near the perfect society.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:18 p.m.

Sweden is seen as a good example of how to ride out an international financial crisis.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:18 p.m.

Some of you have wondered why I’ve been so negative and critical. Let me try to explain:

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:18 p.m.

But I’ve also talked about institutional racism, police brutality, sexism and misogyny.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:17 p.m.

I’ve shown you Malmö. I’ve told you about Mölle and Skåne. I’ve told you about the family that introduced us to Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:17 p.m.

The previous curators have already told you about places to visit, what to eat and our history.

@sweden Oct. 13, 2013, 4:17 p.m.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 5:01 p.m.

Will I try to explain why I’m bringing up the negative sides of Swedish society before the week ends? Yes.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 5 p.m.

Is it another issue that some seem to think doesn’t exist in Sweden? Yes.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 5 p.m.

Is misogyny and sexism an issue only in Sweden? No.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 5 p.m.

Imagine that; but applied to almost every female journalist having an opinion that doesn’t resonate with these angry men.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 5 p.m.

Because as everybody knows: engaging in intercourse with a man is what would make these women sensible.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:59 p.m.

Being raped or not have had sex in a long time are topics usually brought up in these online attacks.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:59 p.m.

When writing about Sweden’s immigration policy one journalist was told that she should be gang raped by a bunch of Muslims.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:59 p.m.

The documentary depicted how journalists and other women online were constantly attacked in disgusting ways.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:59 p.m.

Also the hate towards women online was recently recognized in a documentary.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:58 p.m.

That’s on the first page. When I looked through the gossip page I lost count.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:58 p.m.

All the headlines were about how to look better, how to be better in bed (with a man) or female celebrities looks.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 4:57 p.m.

Scrolling through the website of the biggest newspaper I noticed the following: 17 headlines were about women’s looks or their sex life.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 3:46 p.m.

http://twitter.com/FpVannasmm">@FpVannasmm I'm going to try that. Going to talk to my parents about it. Had completely forgotten about them.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 3:38 p.m.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:40 p.m.

I hope they’re OK.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:40 p.m.

The used to send post cards every Christmas (duh), but that stopped some years ago.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:40 p.m.

12 years ago Ronny and Gunilla came to Malmö for a visit. I remember thinking that Ronny looked really old.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:40 p.m.

That doesn’t matter. They gave us so much that helped later on when the families moved to different parts of Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:39 p.m.

I don’t know if they tried to convert Iranians into Pentecostalism or if they were scheming in some way.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:39 p.m.

It turns out that they were Pentecostal Christians that offered to help with the integration of newly arrived immigrants.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:38 p.m.

The last couple of times we’ve spoken about Ronny and Gunilla my parents told me new things.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:38 p.m.

This was basically the best possible introduction to Sweden for a bunch of scared immigrants scarred by war and persecution.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:38 p.m.

We celebrated Midsummer together, they arranged meetings and parties for everybody.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:37 p.m.

But there was this sense of community there. The Swedish families took us in with open arms.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:37 p.m.

After the first arrival in Sweden my family and their friends were all somehow placed in Tranås. Don’t ask why or how.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:36 p.m.

This is in Tranås, the creepiest little town right in the middle of the Swedish bible belt.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:36 p.m.

I don’t remember all the details but I think Ronny and Gunilla and their family were some kind of foster family to us.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:35 p.m.

I think the reason for my family feeling so welcomed to Sweden was Ronny and Gunilla.

We shouldn't get defensive when called out for it. Maybe just be humble about it and make it stop.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:27 a.m.

Point: There is distasteful racism, homophobia and misogyny in some way within all groups.

@sweden Oct. 12, 2013, 1:24 a.m.

Some of our supporters chanted homophobic chants against one of the players in IFK whom has a homosexual brother.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:52 p.m.

Everyone in Malmö has stories to tell about Zlatan. When he became famous everybody had in some way met him before his fame.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:50 p.m.

The same story applies to a lot of minorities all over the world.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:48 p.m.

So Zlatan had to become the king himself.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:48 p.m.

If his name had been Svensson they would've made him king.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:47 p.m.

Even when Zlatan had won the league in Holland, Spain and Italy experts used to say that he still had to prove himself internationally.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:45 p.m.

No matter what; we have to try harder, prove more and work harder to get recognition.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:43 p.m.

It was starting to away a couple of times but came back again. Last time it wasn't chanted loudly until IFK scored a goal in the last minute

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:15 p.m.

Not ALL supporters chant racist chants though. There has been internal discussions about that chant throughout the years in IFK.

With that being said; Zlatan is from Malmö and Rosengård.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:05 p.m.

But unlike those screaming racist chants I’m in a position where I can apologize.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:04 p.m.

That combined with a squad consisting by ALMOST only Scandinavians was the reason for that analogy.

Rosengård = A neighborhood in Malmö consisting of mostly immigrants. Also ranked as one of the poorest & struggling areas in Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:03 p.m.

The supporters of IFK usually chant “Rosengårdstattare” in the games between Malmö och IFK.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:03 p.m.

This is not the first time I’m comparing IFK with things mostly white and with references to racism or Nazis. There story behind this:

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:03 p.m.

While the Girls analogy was pretty funny I noticed how supporters of IFK took offense by the AB-analogy. I’m sorry for this!

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:03 p.m.

I think the description was something like “Vikings, Aryan Brother gang members and the cast from an episode of Girls”.

@sweden Oct. 11, 2013, 11:03 p.m.
