Ya Allah give me strength and patience because some of the people on this site are beyond garbage…
Sorry! As some of the other notes have said, I meant this sort of thing: “Of course. Asia and Europe aren’t even a separate landmass, after all.” (on your Europe tag) -> arbitrary line down the Eurasian continent…
I don’t care what point you are trying to make, but did you really just use Esmeralda as a depiction of Romani people?!
What the ever loving fuck is wrong with you?!
It’s not like there are THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS of acceptable images you could have posted, but no, you chose to use a completely racist depiction of a fictional character that isn’t even supposed to be Romani. And, don’t tell me “I can because I’m Roma” because you are not.
You antiziganist trasta khuleski.
What the hell is wrong with people? While Disney did choose to portray her as Rromani, the original novel portrays her as a white woman ~stolen by Gypsies~ as a baby so.
Allahumma tawafanee wa anta radhin ‘anee.
ya Allah, cause me to die in such a state that You are pleased with me.
Laverne Cox and Lupita N’yongo literally have inspired so many trans women and black women and have done so much to encourage them and meanwhile they are less influential than an ugly oatmeal reptilian alien and a manchild who wrote a scene where two pretentious terminally ill teenagers make out at the Anne Frank Memorial
If one chooses to refer to themselves as one, that’s their choice, but again, from what I’ve read and observed, Romani or Romani people are preferable to many while g*psy has a dehumanizing history.
Just because some people ID as “Gypsy” doesn’t make it ok for non-Rromani people to use because a. half the people who ID as “Gypsy” don’t actually have any ancestry and have no business using the term in the first place and b. people are allowed to reclaim slurs but that doesn’t mean the general public can use them. It’s not that difficult to grasp, gadje.
