white girls can’t wear bindis because in sixth grade one time i was dropped off at school by my aunt who was wearing a bindi at the time and some girl’s mom whispered to her friend how she would never let her daughter play with me because my family had probably been happy about 9/11 and then four years later that daughter showed up to school wearing a bindi as part of her “”“boho”“” look

if you use the bible as an excuse towards being anti gay dont forget that:
- torn clothes (like ripped jeans)
- wearing clothing made from 2 different fabrics
- cutting your hair
- and working on Sundays
are all listed as abominations in the bible as well
Working on Saturdays
20,000+ gentiles don’t realize that jews are often pro- gay rights and yet have tremendous respect for these “outdated traditions”
Anyone who believes 300 years of oppression can be undone in a 50 year span does not have a basic comprehension of how this subjugation can become internalized and normalized, thus continuing to be a serous social issue
tbh most of what i got out of tfios was that gus built up this huge persona of corny bravado to try to romanticize his own life as a desperate attempt to deal with the temporary nature of existence but cancer don’t give a shit if you sound like a teenage dirtbag that shit’ll come back to get you death doesn’t give a single solitary fuck
crossover where death from book thief rolls his eyes every time gus waters pulls a particularly pretentious line out of his ass thank
But, isn’t that sort of the point? Like, I’ve seen so much criticism about Gus going around lately and I just think it’s weird.
Like, Augustus is TRYING to be brave in the face of his illness by dramatizing and romanticizing his life and ACTING in grand pretentious gestures as a coping mechanism.
But through the book, we see that bravado slip away, and we see the REAL Gus. And through Hazel, we see was REAL strength and bravery is- not Augustus’s metaphors and eloquent meaningless ramblings about the infinite- but in the patience and love and small acts.
Yeah, Gus is a pretentious 16 year old douche. But he’s also dying of cancer, and his idea of bravery is systematically deconstructed through the novel?
Tfios is in no way a PERFECT book, but I’m not sure where all this “the book sucks because Gus is pretentious” criticism is coming from. It’s like people only read the first 50 pages and then put the book down?

the eternal assimilation/inclusion question - is this a meme blog about judaism, or a judaism blog about memes?
well i think it’s important first to decide whether or not jews are white before we tackle this
let’s figure it out right now! while we’re at it, let’s run through a list of every ethnic minority we know and ascribe dichotomous identities to them, and then ignore individuals and entire communities who fall outside those proscribed constructed boundaries! yes. i am a good blogger! this is the most important issue facing jewish people worldwide,. also wht is ahavat yisrael? is someone talking abou israel!!?
