Ignore 'em. My life so I can do whatever I want with it. Even date another race... Or another species if I was into that thing...

What would you do If your mom, Dad or anyone from your family try to stop you from dating your bf/gf because they were not the same race? Or what would you do if your bf/gf family try to stop them from dating you b/c your a different race from them? How you feel about this and has this happen to you or anyone you know? what advice do you have on this?


There's a few ways of tackling this maze:

1. Prove you are one of them, develop yourself beyond the criticisms they hate stereotypically
2. Hold the potential grandchildren hostage.
3. Seclude yourself with your lover
4. Ignore their indignities and have a cold war by countering comments with pda
5. Instruct your parents to behave similar and invite all together
6. Get a second lover who makes them yearn for the first one

why? what and how much reasons do you need?

The laws on my side in this argument!


You will have to seek legal emancipation first, before you sever your parent's rights to control your life. And I don't think emancipation will be granted just because you want it. You will probably have to demonstrate that you are economically self-sufficient first before a judge will grant it to you.

Realize that once you have been emancipated, your parents have literally ZERO legal obligations toward you. They don't have to give you clothing, cars, food, shelter, money, etc etc. Even if you find yourself homeless, emancipation can not be reversed.


Im like 18 in 3 months...

So i control my own life.

And the laws on my side because they would be using racial discrimination which is a serious offence these days.

Court has no place for such small cases.


Laws against racial discrimination do not extend universally. Examples: religious private schools can discriminate based on religion, Boy Scouts of America discriminating against gays/gender, the KKK still exists (though not as a legal entity - they were "killed" as a legal entity due tax evasion reasons, and not for discrimination or any of the heinous crimes that they were involved in), people are allowed to say racist remarks, and they are allowed to refuse friendship/social interaction with other people based on race.

This does bring up an interesting question, though. Exactly what rights does a minor have? Do they have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of opinion, pursuit of happiness, etc??

I'm pretty sure my parents would never do this, they would want me to marry someone that is asian but they can't really decide my life for me right?

I respect my parents but if I really like someone there's really no way to change that and I would have to go against there wishes. But that kinda bugs me when people are like oh screw my parents they can't control me blah blah blah because they still deserve a little more respect than that geez.

I found race to be a non-issue re dating. It was the personality inside that mattered. I also applied this criteria to females that were rather large in physique. It took me a few years to outgrow my superficiality toward plumpness and mature into someone decent. This realization and transformation rewarded the new me to some wonderful relationships and joy I would've missed had I stayed shallow.

With my situation parental approval doesn't matter. I'm 63, they're both deceased. It would be different I imagine if you are tween, teen. Many parents want the best for their kids and don't want them to repeat the same mistakes they (Mom and Dad) made when growing up. Possibly that authoritarian rule will benefit you later on in life; possibly not. I don't know the best answer. Once you are out of their house and care you can do what you choose, ne pas?

Since I'm the loner that I am my parents probably wouldn't give a shit who i went out with as i wouldn't be as much of a loner as i am now.

but if that happened, I would just date secretly.
