    IMO, it's a red flag that is a dead tip-off that you're dealing with someone that is actually anti-semitic.
    Yes, I've encountered this here and on some other forums. One guy claimed even claimed he was anti Zionist, not anti Jewish.

    Re: Is the Term "Jew" Offensive?

    The word Jew itself isn't offensive.

    However, one can use it in such a way as to insult by implying it as some kind of negative.

    "Look at you skimping on the check, you're such a jew".

    "Man, why'd you have to go and be a Jew, you could've afforded those concert tickets"

    Etc.

    In those cases, the person is attemtping to use "Jew" as an insult by suggesting negative stereotypes that are commonly assigned to the people the term references. That doesn't make the term "jew" in and of itself offensive, but rather the way the person is using it.

    Man, you got jew'd by that salesman.

    What's wrong with you, why you jewing me?

    I HAD that HS, wtf so jew.

    Examples of offensive use of the word JEW.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No it isn't, but depending on the context in which a person uses the word it can be seen as offensive. Like when some people call me a Yank to show their hatred for the North.

    It's not typically offensive, however this man makes it so.

    Re: Is the Term "Jew" Offensive?

    As always, depends on context. We had a poster here that called me "Jew" with absolute intent to be offensive. Other times I've been called "a Jew" with no offense intended. If you think about it though, calling someone "a Jew" sounds aggressive. Usually better to call someone Jewish.
