    "where are you really from?"
    This. Or some minor variation on the question, but essentially asking the same thing.

    'why do you speak up for and defend muslim or islam when you're not a muslim yourself?'.

    well that's because I respect people from all races and religious backgrounds. this is how I was raised and I will hold dear to these principles forever.

    Ikr, you would think people have never seen curly hair before XD
    LOOL it's so annoying especially because I have tight curls so it clearly looks like it's natural and not like I used a curling wand or something.

    "How can you live without cheese/bacon?!"//"But where do you get your protein from?"
    I can relate to this. Some people when they find out I'm vegetarian are genuinely surprised to hear that there are sources of protein that don't come from animals, no I don't get constant cravings for bacon & in fact I'm not tempted to eat meat in the slightest.

    They're probably astounded by the beauty and kinda tactlessly complimenting you, I'd say.

    I've had this one as well. I'm mixed race black/ white & apparently I'm 'acting white' if I don't conform to some peoples stereotype of what they expect a black person to be like.
