Replace ‘goy’ with ‘Jew’ and it becomes an antisemitic slur, replace it with ‘black’ or ‘gay’ and it becomes racist/homophobic one. Replace ‘goy’ with cornflakes, and now you’re insulting cereal. Pour goyim into a bowl with milk, and it’s possible you are a giant and an anthropophage. Close a rock over the entrance of your cave to hold the goyim inside with your flock. If one of theme tells you their name is some variation on “No One,” eat him immediately.
It’s nothing to do with what the term means, it’s that you’re using it as an insult; you’re implying that it’s okay to disparage someone because of their religion.
How is that in any way different to antisemitism?
"Jew" isn’t an insult, if you make a comment about not wanting to spend a lot of money and someone (with a somewhat disgusted look) replies that "you sound like a Jew!", that’s antisemitism.
"Black" isn’t an insult, if you make a comment about how you like rap music and someone (with a somewhat disgusted look) replies that "you sound like you’re black!", that’s racism.
"Man" isn’t an insult, if you make a comment about how you dislike shopping and someone replies "of course you don’t - you’re a man", that sexism.
I don’t understand what part you’re not getting about this. If you’re insulting *anyone* on the basis of their religion, that’s no better than antisemitism.
you are playing a semantic game. i am trying to keep my friends, my family, my community safe by helping other jews to recognize antisemitic red flags. go away.
