Jewish by religion and ethnicity. Non-Orthodox (kinda hard to be when you're agnostic). I haven't run into antisemitism on GAG, but I haven't been here long. In the real world... oh GOD, yes. Worst one was when I was talking with an anti-nuclear peace protester. I always wear a star of David necklace -I was in a tank top and she was eye level with it. We were having a perfectly reasonable conversation when all of a sudden she started screaming at me about how Hitler was great, and we needed another Hitler and Hitler should come back and Jews were responsible for everything wrong with the world. I was... 14? My mom's had worse run-ins. Outside of that, I've run into a few people who've tried to convert me -I can usually make them go away by quoting the bible at them in Hebrew until they give up, and they tend to be polite, if... overenthusiastic.1
