Eastern & Central Europe: Roma and Gipsy

TOL's Romantic explains that “not all of Gipsies are Roma, there also exist Kale (Kalos), Sinti, Mugat (Luli), Travellers and some others. They all are Gipsies but they are not Roma, they mind being called Roma. […] And, sorry for my French, go to a long erotic tour everybody who think that ‘Gipsy’ is a bad word. It is a word for my nation, so for me, for a Gipsy woman, that’s a good word. I’m proud to be Gipsy!”
