That being said, Rei is also mixed with an alien soul, so she's not entirely human either.
How do you know that she is a hybrid soul? Assuming there isn't a thread that this would be better discussed in.
But just because we have never seen a FAR, doesn't mean they aren't alien. Anything that has never lived on Earth is definitely considered alien.
Oh yes it does! If humans are based off them, it makes a huge difference. Species lines make more of a difference than location differences. Psychological differences are next. In fact, location means almost nothing, and to say that you are an alien is a semantic issue, and as I already said, it matteres not as to whether you act like an alien
But Rei was also created by humans, and a lot of human behavioural patterns were imprinted on her from birth.
That doesn't mean that they created or shaped her mind. If she was truly an alien as you say, then no amount of tinkering by humans should make her this human. Consider also their inability to recreate a human soul, and you will see why this one is unsupported.
The analogy fails here because Lillith wasn't born here, but instead 'immigrated' here. And instead of growing up and acting like the planets creatures, the planets creatures grew up around her and acted like her. Origin is very important in this case.
Its not an exact analogy. But she is only conscious and aware after those life forms came to be, FYI.
It really was to point out how something could come from another place, and still be judged to be what are from how they act, not where they came from.
Also, that link.
Fair enough. For the sake of topic, I think we should probably just drop this part of the conversation.

When she isn't aware of those powers until the end, it makes a difference. The two are already separate until the appointed time.
Lolwut? You can't be an immigrant to this country if you were born here. Our screwy laws make that instant citizenship. Also, BORN HERE. Lilith was not.
Again, imperfect analogy. See what I wrote to the Corpral.
If you do not have citizenship you are an alien, legal or otherwise.
Only legalistically speaking. That's frankly worse than a semantic argument, IMO.
Er... pardon my ignorance, but what does that mean?
But it's not really her choice if it's a big deal in a romantic setting. It's whoever she has her eyes set on. Not everyone is going to have a freakish reaction to something like Asuka did with the bone me or get lost bit. My opinion of the morality of the matter may not mean shit but the target's does. The question shouldn't be is Rei okay with these facts, it should be is her interest okay with them.
