I think mixed children make some of the most beautiful (and exotic) babies ever..!  Mixes of all races.. I’ve seen so many beautiful children (I see a lot of children in my field of work).

And I looooove Modern Family & Lily!!

@jessierhysy:  I thought lily was actually supposed to be adopted straight from china??  

I think lots of mixed race kids are super cute. But as a side note, I have a friend who’s half Chinese/halfCaucasian and STUNNING as far as I’m concerned. But she claims that if she actually is judged based on Chinese standards of beauty she wouldn’t be anything special, as their ideals are different (and fat – my goodness she’s a western size 2 haha).  I always thought that was super interesting.

I think that they are children, and therefore proof that the world should continue.

Just a little note in case the thread blows up: I know that you’re coming from a good place. But for people who are biracial (or can claim many races as part of their heritage) sometimes being singled out as “super cute” (or super anything) just because of your racial heritage feels crappy, even though the person is trying to be complimentary. It’s positive stereotyping along the same lines as “all Asian people are good at math” or (on the gender side) “all women are good with babies.”

Not trying to be a jerk or make you feel bad, just giving a word of caution in case you run into someone in real life who feels particularly strongly about this. 🙂

@village_skeptic:  Ah, thank you for voicing what I was having trouble deciding how to say. I kept checking the new comments to see if someone had a found a way to express that.

I’m mixed. I’m curious about the purpose of a post like this. There are cute and less cute, pretty an plain in every race. There is a lot more to being mixed than being good looking, which really is quite a generalization. 

This really does not make a lot of sense to me. I really can’t articulate very well at 12:30 am to explain why this is offensive to me but it is. I guess it kind of like there is an option for people to be opposed to mixed kids? Why are we judging them? Why are we judging them separately? What if someone wrote ‘what do you think of Asian kids?

To be honest, the more I think about it the more it pisses me off.

All physical beauty is superficial, its not wrong to think that an exotic ethinicity is attractive, no more than saying redheads or blondes or whatever are attractive. Many people like that the children look unique and find that to be cute.

@mamadingdong:  

[content moderated for snark] She’s just being playful. Nobody came on here and said mixed babies are hideous. mixed babies are freakin cute and so are most white babies, black babies, etc. No lie, I almost always think mixed babies are cute, and I only sometimes think [content moderated for snark] babies are cute. Maybe there’s something to mixing colors – comes out with some beautiful skin tones! 

Someday when everyone has mixed and mixed, perhaps there will only be one race. I’m sure it will be a beautiful caramel color!

@village_skeptic:  Pretty much what she said.

I think they’re just kids like every other kid.  How awkward would a post be if it were “what do you think of white kids?  Aren’t they cute?”  OP, I know you meant no harm, it just sounds like a weird question.  All races produce adorable kids (and also some butt ugly ones).
