Tell all your friends to just join tumblr. Cause facebook will just eat your post and they will never be seen. Tom is making it real hard for bands to get the word out about things.

I’ll use an example, lets take a look at how the word “black” or “dark” can be applied to the color or style of an art piece and is utterly harmless when done so; but when applied to a person - more specifically the color of their skin - it can be offensive. Even then, before offence can be taken there is usually the involvement of malicious intent as applicable adjectives can almost always be used in a non-offensive manner to distinguish one object over another on a daily basis.
tlv birdie is bohemian style blogger, urban gypsy, mixed media explorer, visual merchandiser. my home is a gypsy soul, and currently it is los angeles, california.
In Britain the word is often used to describe travellers, typically in a derogatory manner - but it’s the context which makes it offensive, not the word itself.
There was no malicious intent - nor even a potentially malicious context in what we said as it does not disrespect any person or group of people, and I’m writing this message just to ensure nobody is misunderstood with regards to our use of the word “gypsy”.
A word on its own is not offensive.
This debate keeps going around the tumblr-verse.
If you use the word “g*psy” to describe your life or style, please stop. You’re being an ignorant ass. Find a different word. Like hippie, bohemian, or free-spirit. There’s a thesaurus at your fingertips, you don’t need to use a slur.
*Also, I’ve never heard of black or dark being a slur? It’s not necessarily PC but as far as I understand, it’s not a slur.
fuck racists who say shit like a word on its own is not offensive
