Tips for dating a jewish girl
Later in the video, Buzz Feed shows the Jewish girlfriend asking a waiter to have the kitchen correct their mistake on the boyfriend’s meal and compensate them for the error.
The Jewish girlfriend reveals that her bag not only has the things he needs to stop the itching and the swelling, but the full contents of a local pharmacy.I can’t help but associate this scene with a hundred other antisemitic depictions of Jewish people as greedy.Why didn’t Buzz Feed just end the joke with the existence of the wish list instead of having her demand more than one present?The idea that “all [insert minority here] know each other” is othering.It makes me cringe even more than how Buzz Feed seems to have mistaken extroversion, a good memory, and coincidence for Judaism.It is something that a particular kind of self-assured, assertive customer does, regardless of religion.
Of course, it’s possible that Buzz Feed’s writers know a Jewish woman who casually sends back food that the kitchen made incorrectly.
Hence, a Jewish girlfriend, with her endless supply of snacks and ability to take charge of any situation, is suddenly the ultimate safe space: attractively decorated, able to negotiate on your behalf with the terrifying world outside, willing to have sex with you.
Generations of men have feared, loathed, and demonized the castrating, overbearing Jewish mother; this one, who probably still texts their real moms 17 times a day, fetishizes her.

Speaking of harmful stereotypes…In a later scene, the Jewish girlfriend discovers that the boyfriend’s boss is Jewish and rattles off a bunch of people that she and the boss both know.
