A study in clickbait, this journalist hardly deserves the title but this mirrors a previous article from Slate so I’m posting it as part of a theme. Note the theme of control? Prove you aren’t X by Y? Do what we want or we’ll call you names? The tactics of children.
Replies for online dating? That is polite. Very polite.
A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever. The website looked at research from five years ago – which showed most people prefer to date within their own race – and compared it to current data. It found that racial bias has increased.
So it’s natural, you’re arguing against nature.
I scoffed at the idea of an Indian, whose own race has an infamous caste inter-cousin marriage system, has the temerity to be infuriated by the notion of racial preference when it comes to one’s own children (and that’s where the money really is on these stories). She (sorry, her ‘friend’) thinks she is entitled to a white man. Why? Am I entitled to early 90s Brad Pitt? I bet her ‘friend’ has an “I deserve…” list, because men are like slaves you can just pick them up like handbags, completely to your specifications, they have no say in the matter whatsoever.
As an aside, if we could eliminate romantic biases, Brave New World’s “everybody belongs to everyone else” would apply and there would be no such crime as rape. Use that one against a feminist. It would apply to all humans, regardless of sexuality and age…
To quote a few choice comments;
You ask: “Why does racial bias come into dating?”
I ask: “Why does height bias come into dating?”
I think that sums it up for us guys. Everyone have preferences. Get over it.
Mixed race relationships are uncommon. There’s actual data on this subject; the author of this piece just clearly can’t be arsed looking into. It’s just a bunch of vapid anecdotes.
Cultural Marxism is a mental illness. When it comes to dating everybody is different, get over it. Extremist takes on equality are as frightening as they are deranged.
There was a programme on Channel 4 some years ago – ‘I won’t Marry White’. Asians in England who were looking for an Asian partners. There seems to be a double standard when it comes to what is seen as racist.
I think he’s homophobic as he’s only interested in chicks.
Why on earth should we be obliged to have a discussion on this issue. Surely personal relations are as personal as you can get – that is “personal” not the business of the State? The fact that the State, through quite disproportionate pressure from the “liberal left” has forced the imposition of Political correct legislation on us in so many areas, does not mean that they should be allowed to trespass further.
It is about time that legislation reflected the obligations of the majority, not the entitlements of minorities.
