And thank you for upholding the respectability of this discussion. As far as jabs go it was a more amusing one, but I was concerned that the future tone of the discussion may have been set. I'm glad to see that isn't the case.It’s not a saying, it’s used more as an insult. Either way before someone gets too heated, just remember the “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” quote.
@JohannSimm I got what you were saying in your post before your most recent one, but I still disagree with changing it’s name. With what @ChimeraWarden said in their post, it’s really just a piece of clothing in the game. I believe you can’t pinpoint it being “offensive” because of that fact. Anyways, that’s my opinion.
I don't expect that everyone will agree with me. However, people tend to have a lot of misconceptions in regards to the Rromani people, so I try to supply information and facts in the hopes that people will be able to make more informed arguments on the subject – whether they're in agreement with me or not.
(In regards to your last point, I'll just say that people can and will get offended all the time over clothing, especially over who wears said clothing, how the clothing is worn, etc. For example, the debate over who gets to wear warbonnets, or concerns over racially-insensitive Halloween costumes. But that's opening a whole can of worms best left untouched for the purposes of this thread.)
