This was my outfit of the day last Thursday. I forgot to upload the pictures. I call this my gypsy witch outfit. Everyone at work really loved it. I literally got a compliment from every girl I worked with that day. 

I am glad that someone can be so dense that a simple description of an outfit offends them. If something so minor can cause so much turmoil in your life, please visit another website. I don’t understand why anyone has to be so rude about someone else’s life. Mind your own business. Your feelings are apparently far too easily hurt for you to attempt to exist in an electronic society. Hide under a rock if you’re afraid of words such as “gypsy,” and “witch” being used in any way other than to describe a Disney movie. 

Really? Because gypsy is not a racial slur? It is not regularly used as a stereotype (in a negative way) against Rroma and other walking people? It isn’t regularly used in conjunction with Witch in a stereotyped and troped way?

Oh no, my bad. 

I’m sorry mrbananas, you’re completely wrong. Your argument is invalid and clearly based on ignorance.

I am not afraid of words like gypsy, even though I should be since you know, I’ve been beaten for being one and watched friends be stabbed and raped for being one.

But, yeah. Obviously, I’m just too easily hurt for my own good and should take my ethnicity and my feelings about a racial slur away from your nice internet where the word gypsy only refers to a racist Disney movie and not, you know, to an actual ethnic group who are still fighting marginalization, discrimination, and racism.

And no, you do not have a right to tell us what not to be offended by.. it doesn’t work like that, Gadje.

If we’re offended by this, then it’s offensive. End of story.
