ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here. 

As a product of an Afghan father and Scottish mother, I have been called exotic many times - especially by men. It has always made me slightly uncomfortable. It never feels like a compliment. Just because someone can’t figure out “what I am”, doesn’t mean I appreciate racially inclined compliments. Why does a comment about my looks need to be qualified by my heritage?
