    Don't call me Exotic!

    ! You say I am Exotic You mean I am Other And you are Default It's hurtful and reflects institutionalized racism against the person your referring to. Don't fuucking call me exotic! I take it as a racial slur! I'm not your African Godess, K?

    I Always Found This Offensive

    I have olive skin, dark hair and big brown eyes. Apparently that's exotic. When I was at school, one of the dinner ladies used to say this about me, she would find it hilarious to work out where I was from. London. That was always my reply, because I am from London. That's not...

    I Was Told I Was Exotic-

    looking by my mother. When I was in high school, I asked her if she thought I was pretty, she said, "You are exotic looking". I wasn't particularly pleased with that answer and I don't really know what she meant; I still don't. I know what it means generally but not in reference...

    People Are Never Able To Tell My Nationality Or My Ethnicity

    I've been told I'm exotic so many times. It happens when I'm traveling or even in my own home country. When I was in Canada I would have fun with people who would try and guess my nationality and they would fail miserably. I've been told I look Italian, Mexican, Israeli, I was...

    Lots Of Times

    People are usually intrigued as to what my ethnicity is. They usually think I'm mixed so they always say I look exotic.  Proof is in my photo comments.

    I love being called names! I love being called fatty, chubby, porker, anything that symbolizes my weight. Some people see it as an insult, but I see it as honesty and playfulness.
