-Don’t say “Gypsy”. Or “Gypped”. No matter how it’s spelled.
-Correct others who use the words.
-Punch Holocaust deniers in the throat.
-Avoid supporting businesses or musicians that use offensive terminology. Or at the very least, be aware of how damaging they are.
-Don’t accept “historical accuracy” or “art” as excuses for people to be anti-Rromani.
-Don’t perpetuate stereotypes.

Thank you! Najis tuke!

People in my part of England are so evil in their anti-Roma racism.

Look at the way England presented “My big fat gypsy wedding”.

We are encouraged to stare down our noses at the people, to laugh at their different social customs. It’s not a measured documentary it’s a exhibition of anti-Roma racism.

The worst thing about that show is most of the people on that show aren’t actually Rromani; they’re Irish Travelers. Travelers are mostly ethnically White, but they have some similar customs to Rroma so people in the UK just lumped us together. So the people they’re calling “Gypsies” aren’t even actually “Gypsies”… :/

Under “ethnicity” in my enrollment thing it lists “gypsy” and I think that’s just great.

it’s not fuckin great. it’s a goddamn racial slur ffs. learn your shit people

unfortunately it is used in the UK for official censuses and surveys, though. Like they don’t care if it’s degrading, they use it for laws and all that stuff. I have mixed feelings because on the one hand, this is actually acknowledging my existence, so I don’t have to always put “other”, but by the same token it is a slur and only helps perpetuate that slur’s use…

And that their white feminist faves explicitly stated that they were not including Black women or WOC in the right to vote, just themselves.
