Quote of the Week – 9/15


Even if couched as a compliment, “exotic” does not say I am beautiful. It says I am beautiful in spite of, or perhaps because of, my race. If you want to compliment a woman whose ethnicity you can’t quite place, call her beautiful, because she is. If you ask me about my race, be transparent about it and I will happily respond. But don’t call me exotic.

  1. dear jenster: you are beautiful. inside and outside and auraside. half female/half penguin? whatever. peeps is peeps. put em in the microwave and we all end up the same.

    and if i want to find out about your race, i’ll just wait for the necessary nine months for the report.
