The imagined homogeneity of Somalis often creates distortions. There have always been attempts to call for the uniformity insofar as Somali nationalism, language and culture is concerned. Somalis are diverse people and as such the constants calls for uniformity and rigidity of Somaliness is a dangerous one, which sidelines many people. Often, resulting in discrimination against those who are seen as different who depart from the conventional and pre-conceived social norms and standards of Somaliness or who possess a different idea of what represents Somaliness.
