I am of Jewish ancestry and I have heard that term all my life, no one ever told me it was negative. I am proud to be a Jewess! My Dad always called my Mom a Jewess princess, funny, I never knew it to be a negative..

I guess it's one of those words where it depends who uses it and the context.

They had a few year old repeat show on Law and Order: CI, in which the villain showed his anti-Semitism by using the word 'Jewess'. Guess they need to change that.
