    4. "You're so lucky you don't ever have to tan."

    5. "Is it weird growing up in a sexist culture?"

    Well, as pop star philosopher Beyoncé likes to say, "Who run the world? GURLS."

    9. "Why are you always so loud?"

    Not here to be your Yelp.

    11. "I'm trying to practice my Spanish. Can you just talk to me in Spanish from now on?"

    12. "Your upbringing must have been really rough."

    13. "Mami."

    Please don't use this word unless you are actually talking to your mom.

    Some people have them and some people don't.

    15. "Do you know anyone having a Quinceañera? I've always wanted to go to one."

    Sure, because a coming-of-age celebration is a tourist novelty.

    16. "Can you teach me how to dance salsa?"

    Lol bless whoever thinks this is an appropriate thing to say.

    19. "But, like, you really only got here because you're Latina, right?"

    20. "Where are you really, really from?"

    Los Angeles? California? USA? Earth? The Universe?

    Yes, exclusively. You've really got us figured out.
