Thoughts on the word “Jew”?

I’ve been a practicing Orthodox Jew for my entire life, and everyone I’ve ever known has always called themselves and others “Jews.” I’ve referred to myself as a Jew probably thousands of times without thinking about it.

However, recently I was speaking to another (non-religious) Jewish friend and happened to say the word Jew, and I was informed that I was supposed to say “Jewish person,” and that “Jew” was sort of a slur or something. I had never heard this, and was wondering if it was a common notion? Or do you also use that word?
