I think it's fundamentally a Beta culture. The guys live up to be rock hard (yes, I have seen Snatch), and the women are as hard as they are. They're all a bunch of Eights. They take shit from no one. When a landowner says "get off my land", he no longer exists. When another one points a gun at them, they pull out double glocks and shoot the shit out of her.
Don't fuck with gypsies.
