WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!

I think we know why.

This WAS national news. Those of us with any attention span whatsoever remember it well. It was on every news channel. In August of 2013.

gendest:

because a lot of people dont seem to get this:

  • dont wear a magen david if youre not jewish, its used as a symbol for judaism so wearing it if youre a gentile is appropriative
  • goy: hebrew and yiddish for non-jewish person, it literally translates as “nation.” the plural form is goyim. goy is not a slur.
  • gentile: english for non-jewish person
  • if you’re not jewish you should also avoid using the word “jew” since many jewish people are uncomfortable with it (though i personally am fine with it). use “jewish person” instead if youre a gentile

please reblog this if you’re not jewish, i almost never see gentiles acknowledging cultural appropriation of judaism and anti-semitism on tumblr, even among people who otherwise pay close attention to such issues

(Original text has been edited to remove portions of the post I am not addressing. For complete post, see source.)

FYI, the Magen David is not, and has never been, an exclusively Jewish symbol. It was popularized in the 19th century, inspired by - one might say appropriated from - Arabic literature and the Seal of Solomon. It has been used decoratively and symbolically for most of recorded history by people of all stripes. Use of the six-pointed star is no more appropriative of Judaism than use of the five-pointed star is of Paganism or the cross of Christianity.

Goy may not be a slur, but it has been used as such. Compare to gaijin, the Japanese word for foreigner. Both literally mean the same thing in reference, but have been used as slurs in common speech. Contrast to Jew, which is of course not a slur, but you ask the reader not to use it as it makes “many jewish people … uncomfortable”. Please don’t have a double standard for these terms. Gentile is well understood, not considered a slur by any listener, and doesn’t try to hide itself behind a language the listener may not know.

  1. If it wasn’t intended to offend you, then you shouldn’t be offended.
  2. You do not get to decide someone else’s intentions. They do.
  3. Being offended is a choice you make. Nobody is responsible for that choice but you.
  4. Even if the slight was intended and deliberate, functioning adults understand that they must move on and not dwell over every sideways glance or rude comment.
  5. You have to stop doing the trendy internet thing where you write something on a piece of paper and take a picture of yourself holding it up while frowning. It’s just annoying at this point.

Do you ever ‘wtf white people’ even though you are a white people.

Yes. Also yes if you replace “white people” with “men”, “white men”, “Americans”, and "human beings".

Your cat needs an upgrade. Most cats these days are solar powered. That’s why they like to lay in the sun during the day. It’s also why they like to eat grass - they need the chlorophyll.
