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

fight me

if you use the bible as an excuse towards being anti gay dont forget that:

  • shrimp
  • pork
  • obesity
  • torn clothes (like ripped jeans)
  • wearing clothing made from 2 different fabrics
  • cutting your hair
  • shaving
  • tattoos
  • 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20,000+ gentiles don’t realize that jews are often pro- gay rights and yet have tremendous respect for these “outdated traditions”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?

there’s literally no where to go

I’m so sickened by this I want to vomit onto these pieces’ of shits faces.

Yeah, fuck this. FUCK these people I am so mad

Three innocent Jews got killed, who had nothing to do with Israel, and people bring up the death of Palestinians?!? The nerve… Fuck this.

These are comments made on a post by a pro Palestinian organization that supports BDS.

let’s go over the facts. A Nazi shoots up a Jewish community center shouting Heil Hitler, right before a huge Jewish holiday. A Jewish group posts condolences. And the result is goyim posting bullshit claims about Jewish ethnicity and religion (irrelevant and untrue, and gross) and derailing talking about unrelated issues elsewhere on the globe (irrelevant) and denying us the term to our own oppression (irrelevant and morally abhorrent.) Claiming it as “activism” for Palestine is a bullshit excuse when you are dealing with the deliberate murder of an ethnoreligious minority, especially when the group that posted this is, as noted above, supports BDS. We see you goyim, and your shit stinks. We know you hold our blood cheap.

i did not expect this posts to get so many notes

i dont know what that last anon was about

there is nowhere to go for a jew who does not support the actions of the state of israel but also has an understanding of their history as an Other and oppressed minority.

I can’t talk to lots of my jewish family about anything jewish because it all comes back to israel, and i can’t talk to many non-jews about anything jewish because it all comes back to israel.

you have hardline right wing jews co-opting your jewish identity for their political purposes and attempting to speak for you and all jews in the interest of The Jewish State, never having asked you if it’s the sort of state you wanted to begin with… and you have nazis, anti-Semites, and generally ignorant gentiles conflating jewishness with zionism with israel and playing into rhetoric that’s been used to oppress and kill jews for centuries.

i can’t talk to many jews about israel because the dialogue encouraged by the mainstream jewish establishment is often so narrow that i get called a self-hating jew or a *nazi*, and i can’t talk to non-jews about israel because there’s so much ignorance re: jews and the history of israel and so much room for jew hate masquerading as support for palestinians.

you look to orgs like jewish voice for peace or even j street for somewhere to feel welcome being a jew concerned with justice in israel/palestine, and you get antisemitic and opportunist infiltrators from one end and revisionist zionists, aipac, and islamophobes calling you traitor from the other

did everyone just quietly forgive pharrell for being in blurred lines




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!!?
