You might be a Jewish Princess if . . .
And, yes I use the generalization Zionist and am no more concerned if it puts people off than I am concerned about antagonizing proponents of apartheid, slavery, or racism.
So some of the people at the something something blog are having a field day calling me anti-Semitic for using the term "Jewish American Princess" in this post. The use of the term "anti-Semitic" is used by Zionists to steer discourse in another direction entirely and to deflect from the real issue. I certainly don't intend to be distracted by such a trivial matter.
A couple of the comments:
"zio-light princess has a narrower range of recipients and really is distastful."
"Your friend Umkhalil's post was what put ppl over the edge and caused tempers to flare, as it (though now revised) called Lisa a 'ziolite jewish princess'. I don't fling around anti-semite as a term very often, but that was hateful."
Please. This term is no more offensive than "valley girl." And evidently, this gal at the
Official Jewish American Princess Home Page
doesn't think so either. Nor do the many women who sign her guestbook and contribute jokes to the site:
You Might Be a Jewish American Princess if:
Neiman Marcus is #2 on your cellular's speed dial.
You've had diamond studs soldered into your earlobes.
You actually know the difference between carats and karats.
You hire an architect to design your new house in Alpha World.
Your dog owns more clothing and toys than your neighbor's children.
Your favorite wine is: "I wanna go to Miami!!!" (Joan S., Dallas, TX)
The only thing you know how to make for dinner is reservations. (Pam K., FL)
You decorate a Chanukah Bush and insist upon eight gifts to get you in the mood!
