i see so many posts that are like “ahhh a friend of mine did something gross and i don’t know how to tell them” like if i’m ever that person please let me know
and its not just Europe btw
there was a violent incident several days ago in Calgary, there have been repeated incidents in California, and I myself can attest to being treated with more hostility and threatening body language
whatever your position on Israel: Jews, stay safe. let people know where you are going, particularly women, and if you are going somewhere alone or in conservative/orthodox dress
there’s been some disturbing overtones to the violence-whenever a jewish woman gets involved, the violence seems to skyrocket. In Calgary, for example, one 22-year-old woman was beaten unconscious by six men, and the cops did nothing, and they were present
Being gay does not give you a free pass to start making sexual or romantic advances toward aro/ace people.
No, it is not homophobic if the person does not want to be with you. Do not dare pull the homophobia card for that.
A pre-season friendly match played by Israel’s Maccabi Haifa against Lille in Austria was ended prematurely when a group of pro-Palestinian protesters invaded the pitch and scuffled with players.
The protesters brandished Palestinian flags and reportedly shouted anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic slogans at the players, and a couple of whom got involved in brief altercations.
So, people in Europe are just attacking Jews now. This is a thing that is happening.
If you’re interested in protesting Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, I understand you. That’s not what’s happening in Austria or Germany or France. These are people who decided to just assault people who are from Israel or who are Jewish.
