What an insult! You're not a real Gypsy! You're a stereotype!

Stereotype? More like fan art. Think Neil Gaiman's Death character in the graphic novel Sandman. I found the avatar years and years ago and have used it ever since. Sorry you missed the point - better luck next time.

Ahhh well, EvilPoet, there are many definitions that can be used:
1. A member of a nomadic, Caucasoid people of generally swarthy complexion, who migrated originally from India, settling in various parts of Asia, Europe, and, most recently, North America.
2. Romany; the language of the Gypsies.
3. (lowercase) A person held to resemble a gypsy, esp. in physical characteristics or in a traditionally ascribed freedom or inclination to move from place to place.

I take #3 literally.

Since I married in June 2000, this has been the most time I've ever spent living in one house in my whole, long lifetime. Kinda makes me antsy.

Actually, TOTALLY makes me antsy.

Indeed you're correct - there are many definitions. That goes for lots of things not just Gypsy's. You can have your #3. I'm - literally - the first one. On my father's side. There's a reason that #3 definition came about and why Gypsy's (aka Roma) are known for moving around a lot. Check out the timeline on the website I included in my first post. If that's your idea of freedom so be it! On that we will have to agree to disagree.

I'm aware (as in - I've read about it) that the Gypsies in Europe were kicked around and discriminated against, and I hate the fact that there IS such a thing as discrimination in this world. If your father's people were damaged by that I wish you healing. I had no intention of insulting your people.

Here in the US, we do not have that history with the Roma. 'Gypsy' is a pretty neutral descriptor, even a bit dramatic - romantic or dangerous, so to speak.

Knowledge is power but only if you have access to the knowledge. All I ask is that you keep what I posted in mind. And on that note - I bid you all a fond farewell.
