Do you guys consider describing someone's looks as "exotic" derogatory/racist/sexist?

If I think someone is an exotic beauty, I consider it a compliment in the sense that the person's appeal is unique and not traditional. Many, however, consider it offensive, thinking it implies an association with a "savage" people or something of that sort.

So does the pit consider this term inappropriate, or could it also be endearing in a certain context?

Not I.

What the hell am I going to call my exotic animals and plants? Is it going to be discrimination if I call them exotic now?


I think if anyone finds that term offensive, they should think twice about opening their mouth.

Exotic simply means: being or from or characteristic of another place or part of the world
Anyone who finds it offensive are just going out of their way trying to find words to deem "offensive".

I prefer the term "Fine-ass Ho"

Only a overly racially-sensitive person would think "exotic" is racist. I'd feel damn sexy if I was called exotic.

If they don't like the word exotic, tell them to go bleach their skin like MJ did. What? Too soon?

You know, I think that the offensiveness and meaning of "exotic women" could be judged better if we were shown some pictures.

Hmm... I'm starting to get it, but I think I need more examples.

I knew deep inside that this would turn into a "post pictures of hot exotic women!" thread, but I don't object in the least.

I guess I was basing this off that episode of The Office where Michael calls Karen "exotic looking" and everyone is hellof offended.
