True Love

By Marriedtoajew - 03/01/2018 19:00

Today, while in the hospital recovering from surgery, I got into a fight with my wife. Apparently, she feels that I shouldn’t have gone to the hospital because “Funerals cost less than surgery.” She brought an extremely detailed spreadsheet to prove it. FML

Same thing different taste


That's messed up in more ways than one.

You might wanna add a divorce to that bill if she doesn't love you enough to get surgery.

You must be butthurt about everything if you thought his username is anti-Semitic.

Anti-Semitic? Yes. Slur? No. Unless you wanna explain how 'Jew' is a bad word? (Careful, that's some dangerous ground you're treading on).

It’s referring to the stereotype that Jews are cheap, which is why it’s a slur.

"Marriedtoajew" is not anti-Semitic? I think with that comment, I can make a guess as to what kind of person you are.

Oy vey! How much do you want for that harmless pun? I have a number in mind! =)

why would it be antisemitic if he called himself marriedtoajew? Maybe his wife is jewish? Maybe she happens to fulfill that clishè. Maybe I am just a kid with issues that shouldn't be texting to strangers on the internet at 1 am. Maybe this world is all jist a plan made up by the lasershark-moonnazibear-illuminati to sell more food at MC Donalds'. Maybe I just said that last one to make this entire argument look stupid. Maybe it worked...

He's implying that Jews are notoriously cheap, which is a shitty thing to do. I would be more sympathetic if he'd called himself "marriedtoacheapskate".

Implying that Jews are stingy is a hurtful stereotype so yes, it is anti-Semitic. A slur, however, is a derogatory term applied to a group of people. "Jew" is not a derogatory term. If you insist that it is, you are on *dangerous ground*. It's the correct terminology to call a person of the Jewish faith. There are many words that are actual slurs that I won't list here. But 'Jew' is not one of them. The implication the OP makes in his username is anti-Semitic and hurtful - unless his wife really is a Jew and it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek but I don't consider that a likely scenario - my point is, I'm not denying that it was prejudiced and wrong. But you gotta call a spade a spade. Jew is not and should not ever be considered a derogatory term. Hence it's not a slur.

Marriedtoajew? Dude, your wife sucks, but anti-Semitism isn't cool either.

What if his wife is jewish though? Do you automatically assume it's racist because you already linked the word "jewish" with "cheap" in your mind? Because that's hella racist....

WOW I am SO sorry that it seems your wife rather you be dead than continue her life journey with you!

If you find your wife digging a hole in the backyard sometime soon--run!
