I have two sons of my own. I recently started babysitting two little girls. We are Caucasian. They are not. I took them all to the park today, and my goodness, did people stare. True, it is a basically Caucasian park, but still. DANG. One (obese) woman came up to me, and asked me if they were mine. You know what I said? I said, "Yes. Why?" She then said "I think it's sad that you cant be married to the same man." I was pissed. TRULY pissed. People adopt other races ALL THE TIME. What is the big FREAKING DEAL? I just said "You need to mind your fuc@@@g bussiness!" And she left. People left me alone after that. I'm still irked. Be honest do you judge a white woman with non-white kids?

I don't judge them because I honestly don't care but I do notice them because they stand out.

Why did you feel the need to point out that she's obese? Sounds like you are judging her.

 I wasn't judging. It was a fact. Anyone shorter than me 5'3 and weighing around 300-325 pounds is considered obese. Look it up on the BMI.

That is still judging. Don't talk about her when you are doing it to, there was no reason at all for that detail.

 I feel like people judge other people to make themselves feel better about their own lives.

No, I don't usually judge people on sight alone.

I don't judge differnt races of children in the same family, no.  I know several people who have adopted so it really just doesn't bother me.  I am white as snow with red hair and my ds best friend is totally hispanic, and when we are out together boy we get funny looks.  Oh well.

I really pay no attention to strangers...why would I?  I have my own lovely child to observe.  I do have trouble with people I know though....especially the drama addicted ones with 6 kids from 6 different men complaining about man problems...really?  Really?? Date better men.

Sorry, rant over lol.

Everyone is. Its human nature. Take a psychology class. However it's also human (that beyond animalistic side) to abide by social norms, which staring is not.
