I thought I was the only one who didn't get it lol.
Not sure if they're doing some deep fishing for compliments or are genuinely curious. Because I tend to see them get pissed at anyone who simply answers the question and thank the thirsty people who throw in a 'Scandinavian, you look hot btw'.
Its just plain curiosity. As for myself when someone asks where Im from I usually say "guess". I think its because Im mixed race and I don't know its fun to know what people might think or guessed you were from. I've never ever had a person guess my ethnicity right, ever lol. And anyway Im more or less just making a conversation. For some reason the the ice just seems to break better when I say guess than just saying where I actually am from (if they ask).
I'm not sure, i guess it's curiosity because here we do learn about other cultures. i dont have a problem with it, i think it's nice to connect from all over the world. helps us appreciate technology in this way too.
why do some users ask users why users ask people to guess their ethnicity or race?
I did because I was honestly curious. I have been told my whole life I looked of a different race and if I was adopted because I didn't look like my family! lol when I was younger It use to bother me but once I got older I thought it was funny and would play a long I never got offended or anything
Yeah i never understood the point of those stupid questions either. You try to guess, end up getting it wrong, and the asker gets pissed cause yous got it wrong. Like what the fuck? lol :P
