here is a good one....

sequacious (si-KWAY-shuhs) adjective

Unthinkingly following others.

[From Latin sequax (inclined to follow), from sequi (to follow).]

-Anu Garg (words at wordsmith.org)

"In the April 1945 Catholic Worker, Janet Kalven of the Granville
Agricultural School for Women in Loveland, Ohio called for 'an education
that will give young women a vision of the family as the vital cell of
the social organism, and that will inspire them with the great ambitions
of being queens in the home.' By which she did not mean a sequacious
helpmeet to the Man of the House, picking up his dirty underwear and
serving him Budweisers during commercials."
Bill Kauffman; The Way of Love; Whole Earth (San Rafael, California);
July 2000.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
