I feel like this is important. I don't feel like you agree.
I'm trying to deal.
I know this is ridiculous and specific but if I follow you I would really appreciate it if you could tag photos with grapes. It doesn’t need a trigger warning or anything I just can’t handle it, it’s part of my OCD.
cainangrey said: It can be though depending on tone. I have a teacher who every time she says it, it sounds like she is refering to an object. It’s not a slur, but if you aren’t jewish and you are talking about “a jew” it can come out more offensive then intended.
well yeah, but a lot of people think that saying it at all is inappropriate and offensive and say things like “jewish people” instead and it’s so fucking annoying. it’s only offensive when it’s being used pejoratively. ugh ugh ugh it makes me so frustrated
this person giving a presentation in my Synagogues, Churches, and Mosques class right now is trying really hard not to say “Jews” and say “Jewish people” instead
and it’s just
"jews" is not a slur
I am pretty sure that one of the people I have a crush on went on a mission trip to Haiti when he was 16 and now I don’t know if I have a crush on him anymore
so TERF was a term that was obviously coined by trans women and a lot of people know it as meaning “trans exclusionary radical feminist” (and i did too until just recently) but it originally stood for “trans exterminatory radical feminist” and TERFs changed the meaning of it to make it sound less horrible
so in case you needed more reason to hate TERFs there you go have some blatant silencing of trans women
BRING BACK THIS UNDERSTANDING OF TERF
me: i've been bitten by dogs several times, i'm afraid of them
dogs: HOLY SHIT WE'RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT????? DON'T FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE
