I am tired of being a Jewish manís rebellion
Washington Post ^ | March 29, 2018 | Carey Purcell

At my very first job in New York, a colleague jokingly informed me: “You came in a WASP, but you’re leaving a Jew.”

That statement was in reference to the demographics of the office’s staff. Almost everyone who worked there was Jewish, and I, a recent college graduate who had spent my adolescence in a largely Christian community in the South, was not. At the time, I had no idea she would end up being so right.

As a teenager, I attended exactly one bat mitzvah, but moving to New York provided endless opportunities to learn about the Jewish faith. Friends invited me to join their families for Passover seders and Hanukkah celebrations. However, it was through my various romantic relationships where I learned the most about Judaism — a religious faith and culture I have grown to love and respect, but that has also contributed to two of my biggest heartbreaks.

One of their mothers was extremely overbearing, somehow getting my cellphone number and calling me, asking where her son was.

The overbearing Jewish mother stereotype.

Were the real issues “Jewish” in the largest sense, or just the Jewish guys in her two failed relationships? I doubt there is any real objective answer. The success or failure of all interfaith romantic relationships boils down to personality, and particularly how much, how often, how big and how small does or does not a personality wish to compromise a faith view with their love for their partner. Desire and acceptance for those compromises is not a matter of faith, but the personality.

She’s not pretty enough to be a proper shiksa.

My marriage was arranged. I’ve come to conclude that is a wise set up.

Christians have arranged marriages, too.

They usually involve a shotgun.........................

She isn’t taking her Christianity seriously enough.

What do ‘blonde, wears pearls, makes a strong martini, good manners’ have to do with *anything*?

A really dumb article; and a dumb girl if she thought that peoples’ faith and culture don’t really matter to them.

So, transvestites want the right to date men, Hogg hates Laura expressing her lack of attraction in a child-man loser drop out without college future, Bill Clinton rapes women disliking him , Obama sues people criticizing him or islam, .... and now... drum roll... let us go after the Joooooooos!

It has to do with being a nice whore. Whenever a girl involves heavy drinks is when she expects to get fcked. When she says she is blond with pearls, it means she is an innocent lamb in the whole affair and knows not better...

Ie she is an irresponsible whore who cannot assume her behavior

No wonder men cannot stick around

A bad word? It is not as bad as hypergamic gold digging whore, which is what she is yet avoids talking about

Perhaps there were other factors responsible for the breakup, and the Judaism was used as one external to the person. Perhaps the men didn’t want to hurt her feelings by telling her she’s this or that, so they used religion as a “safe” excuse. So lady, don’t date Jews in the future. Problem solved!

"Is Shiksa a bad word?"

Yes, it is a bad word. The root word is something like an animal, heathen, foul thing, like what you might use to describe a godless whore, and in fact it is generally used as an insult for non-believing Jewish women or gentile girls. It is also a subject of some neurotic fixation even as reported by Jews themselves. You can get the picture from the following quote:

"But the shiksas, ah, the shiksas are something else again […] I am so awed that I am in a state of desire beyond a hard-on. My circumcised little dong is simply shriveled up with veneration. Maybe it’s dread. How do they get so gorgeous, so healthy, so blonde? My contempt for what they believe in is more than neutralized by my adoration of the way they look, the way they move and laugh and speak." – Philip Roth, Portnoy’s Complaint

Also note the easy move among posters here in this thread, apparently of Jewish descent, moving from the word "Shiksa" to "whore."

Another reason to not date Jewish men! Or, at least, to stay out of theater or newsrooms if you happen to be female and blonde.

She’s got nothing on a Virginia born mom I know. She’s 92, son, 70 and she tells him how to dress, drive safely, yada, yada, yada. Problem is, he is still single. Wonder why?

Anywho, I thought the article was going to be something weird like Jesus was a rebellious Jew. Ha.
