The term itself isn't derogatory against Jews. "Grammar Nazi" is not an ethnic/religious slur, therefore what is there to take back? It's ignorant to assume that someone doesn't have a sense of humor just because they don't laugh at a "joke" you find hilarious. Anyway, where is the joke in this FML?! If a Jewish person -or ANY person- doesn't identify with the phrase (which is truly heavy handed), why should they change their beliefs to satisfy your holier-than-thou, cynical opinion? If you want to call yourself a nazi, fine. But remember, they were wrong and they lost. My grandparents are Holocaust survivors. I am named after two dead children who were killed by nazi bastards. So sue me if I'd never call myself a fucking nazi. NEVER FORGET.
No. There's no good reason to be "PC". Political correctness is the nice way of saying "I'm not going to say anything remotely off-colour for fear I might offend someone." Fuck that. People need to learn to lighten up and laugh at their own weaknesses. I have plenty of faults and failures, but I don't let them bother me. I laugh at them, learn from them, and move on.
I dunno, I think it's good to be reasonably PC. Though if you're a nice person then you shouldn't really consider it 'PC', it should just be 'normal'. I don't think saying 'grammar nazi' is non-pc though - it's too commonly used nowadays, it's like when old people get mad when you say 'crap' because they think it's a swear word when no-one thinks that now.
I did nazi that coming.
Then she obviously has no sense of humour. There's no better revenge than taking a derogatory term and turning it around.
