It would have to be because of that. I'm sure no other ethnic groups enjoy cheese.

This is your original post, emphasis added. You did not say, "I hate Mexican food." You said that you hated it because it's spicy. We have merely pointed out that there are non-spicy Mexican foods. Had you said, "I just don't like Mexican food, it's not to my taste." we wouldn't have bothered as people are free to like or dislike whatever they want. We're not saying that you have to like tortillas or beans or quesadillas or guacamole, only that those things are not usually spicy.

You went on to say:

Which goes beyond just stating that you do not like Mexican food (for whatever reason) and implies that the entire cuisine is worthless except for an alcoholic drink. While perhaps not racist, if someone said to me essentially "your national cuisine sucks" I would be, if not offended, certainly taken aback by their rudeness.

It puzzles me why in a thread where, for the most part, people are talking about the food they enjoy, someone would pop in to rant about a food that they hate in a manner that really makes no sense and then get huffy when people were just trying to suggest ways that a meal might be more palatable when eating at a restaurant featuring that cuisine is unavoidable. Well, people were doing that initially but now you've managed to annoy us all so everyone is getting snarky. Me, I now feel compelled to post this again.

So it's not Mexican food so much as spicy food. I see.

My French used to be decent too, but it's been so long since I've been there, now it's pretty rusty.

I'd figure you'd be able to detect a joke. Apparently not.

Seeing as the OP said that even those who don't love food can join in on the conversation. So, I decided to rant on my dislike of something that is constantly shoved in my face. People always ask why I don't like Mexican food so I decided to answer that before anyone here did so. And I didn't get all huffy but I had to point out what they were doing seemed just like the crap I get from my friends and family about this matter. To me, it looks like you just wanted to get offended and be rude so you twisted my words to make an excuse to do so. You even had to insult me for a simple typo.

Seeing as you were being incredibly rude to me otherwise, I had to take it as an insult and not a joke.

I do like Mexican food, but I can't handle spice. Spicy food doesn't agree with my digestive tract for specific reasons.

I kind of wonder if you realize how absurd this sounds. The universe is shoving Mexican food in your face because one or two people on a forum questioned you?

What about

Being a picky eater is one thing, but this is kind of, you know, extreme saying you "hate" all of this stuff. People are most likely asking you to test your palate and give these things a chance because your tastes change as you age. If you don't like it, fine, you dislike it. But just as you want tolerance from other people about the things you don't like, you should be tolerant enough to give foods and other people's recommendations another chance.

When the first reaction is to get super defensive right away over something as trivial as food, then it becomes personal for people. Maybe it's the beans or the guacamole or the spices you don't like, but food is very personal and emotional for some people. When you're generalizing an entire culture's worth of food into the "hate" category based on select items, that's where the bristling begins.
