The Twitter account for the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is my mother.

On Wednesday, the account, which provides helpful tips for Americans traveling abroad, tweeted one piece of advice that I found RUDE and UNNECESSARY.

So, if I am understanding correctly, @TravelGov, if I’m not model/actress Emily Ratajkowski and a man approaches me in France, he couldn’t possibly think I am nice or have a strong mind but is trying to Taken me, or worse, not Taken me because I am too ugly to be sold to an oil magnate? Is that the advice I am getting from my government?????
