Atheist view on inter racial dating subash chat dating
If I were to state instead that, “I have have no interesting in dating a black woman”, I would likely still receive some condemnation, but probably less than for the first statement.
Finally, if I were to state that, “I have no interest in dating a man”, I would receive very little, if any, condemnation for it, even from those who advocate strongly for gay rights.
As one of my colleagues recently posed the question, “” The issue of discrimination is one I’ve discussed before, considering why discrimination on the basis of standardized test scores is deemed to be appropriate, whereas discrimination of the basis of obesity is often not.
So let’s turn our attention towards discrimination in the sexual realm today.
As Jenny puts it we “fetishize Asian women while devaluing blacks”.
Now tone doesn’t come across well through text-based communications at time, but neither “fetishize” nor “devalue” sound as if they have a particularly positive connotation to me.
Most men, if you polled them, would overwhelming respond to women on dating websites, and not other men; women would likely do the reserve.
This does not mean, however, that men (or women) “devalue” other men (or women).
There are dozens of potential variables that people assess when choosing a mate—such as how much money they have, how much they weigh, how tall they are, their age, their relatedness to us, etc.—and the importance of these qualities also varies somewhat depending on the nature of the relationship (whether it is more short- or long-term, for instance).
When one group is preferred, it’s a “fetish”, whereas when they’re not preferred, they’re “devalued”.
Well, sort of, anyway; if she were being consistent (and who is?
Now I happen to think that race likely does matter to some extent when it comes to dating preferences, but the degree of that extent is anyone’s guess.
To see why I would say this only requires that one understands a very basic statistical concept: correlation does not equal causation.
