  1. The truth of her historical perspective, as well as her description of the current war against Gaza, notwithstanding… a few minutes listening to this girl certainly supports my lifelong aversion to Jewish girls.

  2. I think that was part of her presentation. Off the Youtube stage, she is probably a lot less ethnic.

  3. Except for her superior command of English syntax, this girl sounds like just about any American College Girl since

  4. Richard, what percentage of ancestry makes a person Jewish, male or female? Indeed, is it patrilineal as well as matrilineal?

    Any chance your feelings of aversion, rather than desire, may sometimes be misplaced, that is, a result of making false positives?

    And being human, fallible, what about the false negatives you surely make now and again? Once the error is recognised is the anxiety close to unbearable?

    But you can take comfort from the fact that ethnicity, even in its religio-ethnic form, is simply fictive kin. Which makes your aversion truly fantastic, mythic.

  5. A small yet helpful video, striking at the subject in question. She’s obviously from SoCal not that it matters but her ‘truth’ is quite endearing and honest and should make any Jewish-American with a knee-jerk pro-Israel position take notice.

  6. I’m sure those Jewish girls are absolutely GUTTED about that lifelong aversion, Richard.

  7. #4 Jara Handala… Sorry, I can’t adequately respond, mainly because, after reading your comment, I’ve hardly any idea what you meant. And, #6 David… Isn’t “gutting” a hunting and fishing term, rather inappropriate to dating?

  8. As a lifelong SoCalian, I’d say her vocal and physical mannerisms are indistinguishable from those of an Orange County WASP princess fwiw.
