One of my girlfriend’s friends complained about not being able to make Jewish jokes as there was a Jew present (me) the other day. And ever since, I have avoided him. I do not hang out with my girlfriend when she is with him and it upsets her a little.
Tonight he was over with a group of people so I decided to make an appearance. He used the word “Jew” as a pejorative word in front of me (he had obviously forgotten about me) and I promptly left the room and proceeded to lock myself in the bedroom. My girlfriend comes over and asks me what is wrong. I tell her. She goes away and comes back. She has said something to the guy who wants to apologise.
Two or things bother me here:
1- He insults me, my family, my friends and all I stand for. He basically just punched me in the stomach and now wants to say sorry. NO. I do not accept such a fake apology. I have no words to describe how sick discrimination makes me.
He thinks it will make it all okay just because he’s sorry he hurt my feelings? He can just go to Hell.
2- Even if my girlfriend stayed with me initially I told her to go take care of her guests which took a while as she did not wanna leave me hurt by myself. She finally goes. I just don’t understand why she still accepts this guy as a “friend” when he clearly stands on the opposite of everything we believe in and when he has covertly and overtly insulted me (He has called me a bitch on several occasions when uncalled for - is there ever a time anyway?)
It just hurt me so much, there is no one I can really confide in right now due to a couple of factors so I had to rant on here. Thanks for reading if you have. Sorry for the trouble :p
