I made an anti-semitism bingo card. I’m sure others can improve it significantly. But this is a start. Any Jewish blogger can feel free to use this. I’m more interested in it being used than me getting any credit for it. Bingo seems a popular rhetorical device of late and I’m willing to use any tool at my disposal.

I recognize a lot of these bingo squares. Even heard several of these things from people I used to call my friends. And it’s what a lot, lot, LOT of non-Jews believe that some of these squares are “ok” and that they’re not anti-Semitic. There is the occasional one who understands and I couldn’t tell you what makes that happen. Must be a random genetic mutation that works in our favor. But more often than not I will probably hear “it’s a religion, not an ethnicity” or a belief in stereotypes (including “positive” stereotypes) from a lot of non-Jews at some point. 

Who actually believes any of this shit? Like seriously, what kind of fucked up place do we live in? I was reading through this expecting to find common observations of Jewish culture that I witness people making all the time, but ALL of these are alien to me. I can’t believe people like that exist.

I hear a lot more of the stuff than a lot of other Jews do because of a weird intersection. My father is not Jewish, I have an Anglo-Scottish last name, and I am completely white passing. I hear a lot of things that were never meant for me to hear. I also get non-Jews who relate to me forgetting I’m Jewish or even not knowing for a long time, or who are confused about how I am vs their expectations of Jews. 

I’m not Jewish and I never hear these crap…? Might be a cultural difference, though it’s not like London doesn’t have huge Jewish communities. People in the UK tend to think Jewish = only practising Jews who look like Jews. The only criticism you really hear here is “they don’t integrate” which is true if you’re referring only to “obvious” Jews. :/ But that’s the problem isn’t it, like you say, there’s a world of variety people don’t see painting a much richer picture of Jewish people.

The tallest statue in the world, Ushiku Daibutsu.

this always gives me chills


Insane.

Always reblog

Sick

Hate to rain on the Tumblr parade of inaccuracies, but the statue in the original photo is NOT the tallest in the world. Spring Temple Buddha in China is, and it’s another 60ft taller than that one.
The second image, depicting the approx. heights of various statues, depicts Spring Temple Buddha, not Ushiku Daibutsu.
I mean it’s still tall as shit, but I dunno why it’s so hard to just check facts before posting shit on Tumblr before it circulates around the masses. Makes me wonder how many things I’ve reblogged that are BS.

Not gonna lie when I saw the bird suit I was like “ah, a furry too?” and there was not an ounce of shock.

Ahahahaha! I was kind of waiting for hate…

My furry sona thing is a bird but I want to be an opossum now… Shit.

Awesome stuff!

I actually joined a couple of suiters at MCM London, but they were Fox and Falco, so less weird I guess. ;) I actually spent a day at Anthrocon last year just drawin’ and chillin. I know what you mean about furry baggage though… 

Oh, I would say go with either! Dog/wolf suits are done so much, so it’s refreshing to see birds, opossums, and other species. 

Haha! I’m not sure how fursuiters are looked upon in England but I know here the Fox and Falco suiters would have had a much nicer time than general furries. Ya’ know, it’s really a bummer that so many people express such disdain for furries. I get a little worried when the word comes up. Last time I tried talking about furries the whole animation department jolted up shouting, “Freaking weirdos. I hate furries.” Got a bit saucy for a minute. Anyway, conventions would be hella more enjoyable without getting tar kicked out of you. XD 

Oh woah! You went to Anthrocon? Isn’t that one of the biggest furry conventions in the world, if not the biggest? From what I heard, it’s a pretty amazing convention! You are welcome to tell stories about your experiences there if you want. 

The fun Anthrocon stories aren’t actually related to furries… Oddly enough.

Was in Virginia, the boyf decided rather last minute he wanted to go to AC. I book a random hotel just outside of Pittsburg and off we go in his car that probably wasn’t cut out for the drive.

We drove the mountain toll-free roads into the night with windows down because his AC made it sound like the car was about to explode. So we’re racing through these winding, empty roads, and some truck is flashing at us and we’re like wonder what he’s trying to tell us…? Well I don’t even know how to explain, but the road turned into some Mario Kart BS I swear. Some kind of road works, I guess, but no workers around. And there was a waterfall cascading down the fucking road WENT THROUGH? I think some kind of burst pipe… Like, this sounds nuts, and we still don’t fucking know what the hell happened. Doesn’t help I was half asleep. We also hit what we think was a raccoon, and after that his car started to shake violently whilst accelerating… We didn’t think we’d make it home.

We get to Pittsburg and do Anthrocon for a day and just hang out drawing all fucking day. We didn’t pay to go in. We just hung out. It was cool. I didn’t see anything weird or creepy, really. But then I don’t hang around with weirdos.

Next day, coasters OF COURSE. We’d already done Kennywood, the most local park, a previous year, so we went to Lakemont, home of the oldest operating coaster in the USA. It was expectedly shit. Fun was had. Another tick off the list!
