Shoutout to all the patrilineal Jews.

Shoutout to all ethnic Jews who have never been particularly religious.

Shoutout the the ethnic Jews who were raised in a secular home and have now decided to explore Judiasm as a religion.

You are all valid, and you aren’t any less Jewish for it.

Goyim can reblog, just don’t add anything.

Today alone I’ve seen like 5 people from my Facebook friend list either posting crap in support of the Brexit Party or shouting that Nigel Farage needs to be Prime Minister.

…  why the fuck am I friends with these people!?

Okay look.

Okay look.

I’m voting for the Liberal Democrats in the EU elections but it does still bug me more than a little bit that they’re playing the same dishonest game that the Brexit Party are and pretending that a vote for them will directly impact Brexit in some way.

Who we send to the European Parliament will not change Brexit. Brexit is being decided by the British government, not the European Parliament.

So why am I still voting for them if I know it won’t change Brexit? To send a hearty ‘fuck you and all you stand for’ to the Tories.

And it’s different this way than it is to “send a message” by voting Brexit Party for one simple reason: The Tory government already wants, and is trying anything it can, to get Brexit. Voting Brexit Party is sending them a message to get on with Brexit which, as her reaction to the local elections proves, is the message Theresa May hears in everything no matter what it is.

Brexit parties get hammered in local elections and she interprets it as a message to get on with making Brexit happen faster. So voting Brexit Party to send that message is objectively pointless.

Sending a strong message that Brexit can get in the fucking sea, however, may actually carry some significance.

Though I’m 99% sure that even if the Lib Dems and Greens and SNP manage to win every European Parliamentary seat specifically by saying Brexit can get fucked, Theresa May would still give a statement saying she hears the message that we need to get on with Brexit.

I am absolutely begging non-Jews to stop framing the Holocaust as a “more respected” tragedy in comparison to other genocides and atrocities. There seems to be a general belief amongst non-Jews that everyone knows a lot about the Holocaust and is respectful of it. In reality multiple studies have shown that this is not the case. The general public in many places (yes including America) know little about the Holocaust and a shocking number hold antisemitic beliefs about it. Personally in America the education I received on it went only so far as to paint America as a heroic nation while glossing over its own rampant antisemitism including its refusal of Jewish refugees all while showing me graphic images of dead and tortured Jewish people.

I think it’s also important to acknowledge that a lot of meaningful awareness, documentation, etc. of the Holocaust has been fueled by Jewish people in spite of how society has treated our history and not because of it. Nations have minimized their involvement, history has been avoided, justice has often been denied us. We, like every other marginalized group who’s faced similar atrocities, have had to fight to keep our history alive when oppressive systems have done their best to erase it. To believe otherwise is to minimize the effects of both past and present antisemitism on the treatment of our voices.

I also often see non-Jews say things like “well [x] insensitive thing would never be said/believed if it was about the Holocaust” and every time it’s something I absolutely have heard said/believed about the Holocaust. I have had people defend their nazi soldier grandparents to me, been casually told the Holocaust was for the best, met my fair share of Holocaust deniers. Not to mention the general insensitive misconceptions I regularly hear tossed about.

All this to say that y’all need to stop treating Jewish people like some OppressedLite™️ group. Stop talking about antisemitism in the past tense and talking about our history in a way that erases our continuing struggles to keep it alive. Don’t bring us up as a coddled minority. It’ not only inaccurate but fucking dangerous for us when you completely ignore the oppression we’re still facing.
