THE WORD “GYSPY” IS A RACIST SLUR USED TO BELITTLE AND ABUSE ROMANI PEOPLE
DON’T TAG PICTURES OF YOU DANCING IN THE WOODS WITH SPARKLY SCARVES AS “GYPSY”
DON’T TAG PICTURES OF ANY OF YOUR OTHER HIPPIE SHIT AS “GYPSY”
DON’T USE THE WORD “GYSPY”
THIS HAS BEEN A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Also worth nothing, Irish Travelers, Scottish Travelers, Yeniche, Lom People, Dom People and Banjara, who are also thrown into this “gypsy” slur, are not included in the Romani People. Although they have a tendency or tradition of a nomadic lifestyle they are vastly different cultures with different origins that deserve distinction. “Gypsy” is so vague a word that it doesn’t mean anything, only that you’re a racist jerk if you use it.
You guys know the Hunger Games
are just a lame version of the TriWizard Tournament
FALSE. Only one person dies in Triwizard Tournament, and everyone cheats so they know what’s coming, and the end its just a stupid maze. I can’t forget to mention, THEY HAVE TO SURVIVE IN THE WILDERNESS while Potter gets to sleep in his cozy 4 poster bed every night. (Should I also point out the higher intensity of emotional tension and forging of allies? Sure Potter and Cedric help each other out but they never actually trust each other.) I’m not say Hunger Games are better than the entire Harry Potter series, but saying the Games are just a lame Triwizard Tournament is just uneducated, uninformed and uninspired. I love me some Potter, but its just a completely different world with a different emotional focus. Comparing the two is like comparing raspberries and strawberries. One’s sour and one is sweet, but they are both delicious.
Xena 2x04 - “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
This episode is probably the most WTF up to date. Gabrielle in a weird lesbian trance, and Xena hurling a psycho vampire bitch around like the hammer-throw.
I don’t wanna burst your bubble, but Gabrielle is ALWAYS in a lesbian trance. I suppose its weird, because its not towards Xena. But besides that, yeah its kinda a messed up episode, what with the decapitated talking head and skeleton harpies and such.
