I hate this idea that members of society are now totally equal and that racism and sexism in particular are so antiquated that it’s either liberating and refreshing or quirky and ironic to be racist and sexist.
That the world is so “PC” that people…

The Jewish Tag: Welcome back to the Jewish tag, Michael!
The Jewish Tag: Look at all these cool things I- Uh…

less than a blatant coup d’état, a forced misappropriation onto
the face of a new religion of what rightfully belongs to a much
older one. The term “Judeo-Christian” is therefore not only an
oxymoron, it is outright sacrilegious, a dishonor to the millions
of Jews who were tortured or killed for their refusal to convert
to Christianity, and, by association, wrongfully links the Jewish
people and its ancient scriptures as accomplices to centuries of
Christian slaughter and oppression of other indigenous peoples
as well via Christianity’s sorely misguided and misapplied
interpretation of the “Old Testament.

1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.” It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.
And like? It is super annoying when the speaking habits of a particular area or sub-group is treated as ignorant, because they don’t live in somewhere considered smart.
they spelled awareness wrong
feeling intimidated by people you want to be really good friends with
