if this is inappropriate, please feel free to delete it, but i'm not sure where else to ask:

a lot of the time when i wear lolita (and even sometimes when i don't) people think i'm asian. people in chinatown have tried to speak to me in languages i don't speak because they were so convinced i was asian. i am not asian. i am an amalgamation of genes from many other pools, but i am not even 1% asian.

does this ever happen to you? does it weird you out? do you feel weirdly responsible in some way because you've appropriated something asian?

this has happened to me so often i'm starting to feel uncomfortable with wearing lolita.
