Hi everyone! It is very nice to be a part of this board (I'm new).
I have several X/Ys for you:
You have black hair. You must be goth. No, my hair is naturally dark, and I don't want to be bothered having to keep up with maintaining dark roots every three months.
You're in college? You/your parents/your family must be made of money. No, I am having to rely on financial aid, and I'm actually struggling right now. Not that it's any of your business...
You rely on financial aid to go to college? You poor people really like abusing the system. Why don't you just get a job? No, I put myself through college so I wouldn't HAVE to be poor any longer, so I could get a decent job. Besides, have you heard about the economy lately?
You're on food stamps? You must be fat because statistics (from 1990) show that all poor people are fat. First of all, I eat healthy foods. Secondly, I teach belly dancing as a hobby, so I'm fit as a fiddle. Thirdly, quit using outdated statistics. Plus, everyone knows statistics are padded anyway.
You can belly dance/You were a professional belly dancer? You must be ignorant/stupid/you must be "that" kind of lady. No, I am NOT "that" kind of lady, and I am a member of MENSA, thank you kindly.
You and your fiance met online? You must be ugly/can't do any better/a boring person. Actually, my fiance resembles Tom Welling, and has a PhD in Quantum Physics. Obviously, I am not chopped liver, either, since he is attracted to me, and we both live exciting lives going deep sea diving when we aren't busy with work or school.
