I’m seeing more people with “tigan” in their URL.
I’m assuming that they’re Google translating words for “Gypsy” because the URL they wanted was taken.
If you are not Rromani or you’re not Rromani from certain parts Continental Europe, then don’t use that word.Don’t use ANY variation of that word.
IT’S WORSE THAN “GYPSY” YOU FUCK WITS.
MOST RROMANI WON’T FUCKING TOUCH THAT WORD WITH A 10 FOOT POLE, IT’S THAT OFFENSIVE.
IT LITERALLY MEANS SLAVE.
As a rule of thumb, if a url is too complicated to use I don’t use it. What these people are doing is pretty fucking stupid, but it’s not like they took some gypsy babies, threw them up in the air and shot them with rifles. They just did something stupid, and publicly shaming them I don’t think will make things any better. You’d actually find that if you contacted them personally and told them that what they’re doing is offensive, they’d probably change it in a heartbeat.
