18 Things People In Interracial Relationships Are Tired Of Hearing

And, yup, we're counting "inter-ethnic" relationships, too.

Posted on

1. "Your kids are going to be so cute!"

Can you wait at least until they're born to, like, weirdly fetishize them? Oh my God, wait. You totally have a Pinterest board dedicated to biracial babies, don't you?

2. "But what will your kids identify as?"

Fox / Via images5.fanpop.com

"Spoiled," probably. But, honestly, that's up to them.

3. "How did your parents react?"

CBS / Via media.giphy.com

They said, "Hi, how are you?" and then they showed embarrassing childhood pictures.

4. "Are you rebelling?"

Fox / Via offcolortv.com

My whole entire brain is rebelling against your question.

5. "Is this a phase?"

ABC Family / Via tumblr.com

Well, it's not a phase if it lasts forever.

6. "This is not some kind of fetish, is it?"

CityTV / Via ohheyitsaj.com

No, this is not 50 Shades of Dating.

7. "Do you hate your own race?"

*aggressively dances away from you*

8. "Oh, I dated a ________ once."

Fox / Via newgirl.soup.io

How is that relevant to our relationship?

9. "Oooh, I've always had a thing for ___"

ABC / Via offcolortv.com

People? Yeah, most people are into the same species.

10. "Oh, aren't they [insert racial stereotype here]?"

CityTV / Via colorlines.com

So. Over. This.

11. "So what holidays do you celebrate?"

Fox

The ones I'm invited to. The ones with food.

12. "Is it weird to date someone from another race?"

NBC / Via i.imgur.com

Well, we do tend to get some weird questions...

13. "Aw, that's so cute!"

CBS / Via fuzzyundertones.com

I get that we're two adorable and sexy individuals, but this is a relationship, not a puppy.

14. "You guys are, like. The future."

HBO / Via tumblr.com

Please don't mention us in whatever trend piece you're pitching to Thought Catalog.

15. "You are soooo progressive."

New Line Cinema / Via dailydot82.rssing.com

Not really progressive; we just love who we love.

16. "What do your friends think about it?"

Fox / Via glee.wikia.com

If they didn't like it they wouldn't be good friends.

17. "Family get-togethers must be really awkward, huh?"

NBC / Via tumblr.com

Not really, since they're family.

18. "It's cool that you don't see color."

Well, no, we see it. We recognize it. It's just not an obstacle to being together and eating an entire pizza in front of one another in our underwear.*

*Real love.
