    My BF travelled through China and had her photo taken (as an adult) by strangers/ locals.

    So weird!

    She got used to it and said she didn't mind much.

    Ha I find it funny the racial stereotyping we all subconsciously do. 50yo Asian taking photos of children is ok, but if a 50yo white man had done it we all would have said pedophile. That's not having a go at anyone as I do the same thing.

    I would challenge anyone who took a photo of my child, regardless of their culture. I'm not a fan of Pauline Hanson or anything but when in Rome...

    My DD2 is fair skinned with brown, crazy curly hair and brown eyes and people have asked to take photos with her a few times - especially in Kings Park which is full of tourists. Only females have asked though and usually in a group - I haven't really minded, just thought it was a bit weird. Someone doing it on the sly like that I wouldn't be happy about though.

    My partner took my eldest daughter to the park a few weeks ago and an Asian guy took a photo of her too. Very wierd.

    Man... No one has ever asked or taken photos of either me or my girls. I don't know if to feel miffed or relieved.

    DH with his red hair and gorgeous freckles is a popular person back in India. Everyone wants a photo of him... After they ask me to leave.

    are your kids dark?

    my dh is half Indian and I'm blonde and pasty pale. I'm hoping/guessing dh's glossy thick Indian hair will trump my wispy European hair and our kid will be blessed with a decent head of hair 😂😂

    On our recent holiday to bali we had a group of indians and also asians ask to take pictures of my ds (they were in the pic too) who has red hair, fair skin and brown eyes. They adored him.

    It happens to my kids frequently, in fact we were once 'mobbed' by a whole Asian tour group taking photos of the kids, so much so, that people thought there was someone famous amongst the crowd as they had gathered all around us. *Most of the time* we are asked, if ever I felt a weird vibe, I would politely decline.

    I can see how it would be confronting and creepy if it happened and and you didn't expect it though.

    I was very fair as a kid and some Japanese tourists (both male) once asked to take a pic of me. I was about 10 and remember it clearly.

    I said no. I was always scared that they'd go back home and tell people that I was their 'girlfriend' - and I didn't even know anything s3xual back then!

    So if it made me uncomfortable, I'd never allow anyone to do it to my kids.

    Would I have confronted them OP, only if I was 100% sure they had taken the pic. I'm always scared that someone might hurt me or my kids. But I sure as he'll would be freaked over what they might be doing with the pic as well.
