I've never encountered a conversation like that before, but I can imagine it'd get on my nerves too.
Yea it was pretty annoying. I personally didn't care/wasn't bothered that he thought I looked full Asian; but what irritated me about him was how he was essentially picking a fight with me over something that I considered to be a personal choice that wouldn't have affected him either way. I mean, whether I were to identify as full Asian or EA, I fail to see how that would've made things better or worse on him. Debating with him in general became annoying, not just on race-related matters.
Nonetheless, you're one of the most beautiful EA faces I've ever seen. ;D
thanks hype, from the pics I've seen of you, you're pretty too anyhow, yea that's right. Given that I'm more than half Asian, there have been times where I'd just tell folks that I was Vietnamese, which is my Asian. But most of them would add "you're not just Vietnamese though, right? you look mixed with some kind of white/european too?" in which I'd acknowledge that my mother is EA. My bro, on the contrary, looks more like dad's side and could pass as off as full Asian; he acknowledges our partial european heritage too, but generally identifies as just Asian, which is fine by me.
Right back atcha maow Your hugs are better in person though.
