TLDR: today y'all learn Asian hair gets freaky and not always ruler straight and black. Lol.
I'm Asian, with dark hair that naturally turns light from sun exposure. I'm half native (to our country) on my dad's side, it's pretty known to most of my countrymen that our tribe folks usually have hair like me (think honey blonde highlights).
So was at the grocery store, where a teenage girl pointed at me and loudly asked her mum why can't she dye her hair like me. Mum yelled to me to stick to my natural hair colour and stop being a wannabe white person.
I ran into them again at another aisle. Mum gave me the dirty side eye while her daughter asked me where I get my highlights. Told her it's natural. This seems to piss the mum who sarcastically remarked how my facial features (flat nose, angular face, Asian(?) thick lips) don't match my wannabe ambition.
To which I combatively reply if only she pays attention in history class at school, she probably knows my features and hair matched my tribe's. But alas, she probably flunked that subject. She went red, dragged her kid away, and that's that.
Apparently Asian folks can only have one type of hair colour.
Edit: my hair is like this, from sun exposure. Just like some pointed out, hair does whatever it wants though. So, during monsoon season (tropical climate country here), my hair gets darker but you can still see the two tones difference. However, during dry season where the sun basically lits your ass on fire the moment you step outside, it's a glorious ombre effect with light highlights. Although 90% of south-east Asian has dark brown/ black hair, a few native tribes around Asia share this same trait and dare I say, pretty common if you inherit the genetic. Half of the relatives on my dad's side have hair like this naturally.

I know that this post seems completely ridiculous, and trust me when I say that I think the same. I'm at my wits end here.
My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year. I'm a casual gamer (I play just a few hours a week) while he's much more invested. He dropped out of college, and when he's not working at his part-time job, he's playing video games. This usually doesn't bother me, as he often invites me to play with him. He's a good boyfriend in every other way, and always manages to make time for me despite his gaming "addiction".
My boyfriend is about 50 pounds overweight, and I'm sure this can at least partially be chalked up to his lack of a healthy diet. He rarely eats anything actually healthy, and while the two of us have tried to go on a diet together, he quit after about a month in, and gained back the five pounds that he lost within two weeks. He very rarely drinks water, and usually prefers soda or Redbull. Needless to say, he's really unhealthy.
Recently, one of his online friends mentioned something called "gamer juice", and my boyfriend asked me to make it for him. All it consists of is water and food coloring, and I assumed that he was just memeing, so I figured "why not". I made him the water, and to my surprise, he actually drank it.
The next day, I tried to give him some actual water, and he completely refused to drink it. I feel like I should at least be trying to get him to drink some water, because it's incredibly unhealthy that he never drinks any, but I think it's totally ridiculous that I have to do this for him. It seems childish, and while I chalked the first few times up to a joke, it's pretty clear that he's serious about this. He doesn't want water; he wants gamer juice.
So, Reddit; what do I do here? Do I keep giving in to his gamer juice demands, or do I be honest about how insane this whole thing is? Help me!

I did police work for almost 9 years, burned out, diagnosed PTSD and had a mental breakdown in July. After months of recovery I realized police work isn’t for me and now I’m a plumbing apprentice. More money, less stress and I sleep SO much better.
