"Don’t say Gypsy it’s a slur"
Okay, but only when I hear that from a group of Roma people say that the word Gypsy offends or degrades them. Because I could be mistaken but are their not groups of “Gypsies” that acutely call themselves Gypsy? Yes it was a slur that has now been appropriated to refer to the romanticized Gypsy lifestyle, which is equated with freedom. Does it occur to any of the non- Roma people complaining about it that maybe reclaiming a word used by their oppressors and used in a positive way is empowering? I am kinda curious how actual “Gypsy” people feel about this “social issue”
And the actual entomology behind the word because I am currently going off of tumblr SJW version of history. Which as far as I actually know is completely fabricated.
Mostly I just think about naps and kissing you
I once had a feminist tell me that even though I’m gay and have been refused service for it, I still have more rights than she does. Because women all across America are being thrown out of restaurants for having a vagina. Right.
Enter vociferous Hollywood movie star who rallies the masses, and goads Western governments to collect and send 100,000 mosquito nets to the afflicted region, at a cost of a million dollars. The nets arrive, the nets are distributed, and the ‘good deed’ is done.
With the market flooded with foreign nets, however, our mosquito net maker is promptly put out of business. His ten workers can no longer support their 150 dependents (who are now forced to depend on handouts), and one mustn’t forget that in a maximum of five years the majority of the imported nets will be torn, damaged and of no further use. —
A reminder to take a long term view to problems. And always one that promotes development, not dependency.
Wow I’ve never looked at it this way.
I need masculism because it’s unfair that young boys are circumcised against their will. And it’s too hard for me to challenge the ageist attitude that children are the property of their parents, so I’d rather just blame feminism.
I don’t know I’d blame a police officer if they just stood there and watched my house get robbed just because it wasn’t their house getting robbed.
