Anonymous said: Let's review your hypocrisy here: you think it's racist to simply not be attracted to most of a certain race, yet you think it's not sexist to not be attracted to a gender. You've completely invalidated your entire tirade in one go, as if it weren't already. Furthermore, you brag about how you date "other races" as though you've won a marathon. This is great for you; however, it doesn't warrant to accuse others of wrongdoing because they have a sexual preference. Are gays sexist by your logic?
I mean, gay males MUST be sexist! They wouldn’t dare touch a woman! Let’s fill in the blanks with women and black people. “I’m not attracted to ___ because that doesn’t fall within the realm of my sexual preferences.” You say one is okay, and one isn’t. You’re ignorant, in addition to be arrogant.
Okay let’s start off by restating that sexuality and race are completely different. If you’re gay or straight, then you’re excluding one gender not because you’re prejudiced, but because that is your SEXUALITY. You cannot help that you are attracted to men or women or both. That is something that you are born with. If you are excluding a race, it’s not because of the sexuality aspect. They have all the aspects that you require to be pleasured, etc. It is simply because of their skin color. Not every person of one race looks the same. If you say that you won’t date anyone except white boys, are you thinking of Dylan O’Brien or Steve Buscemi? They’re both white, but do they look the same? No. Same thing goes for other races. There’s FRANK OCEAN, Denzel Washington, Drake, Donald Glover, Idris Elba, Shemar Moore, Will Smith, Michael Ealy, Damon Wayans Jr., Jesse Williams, Michael B. Jordan, and the list goes on. I repeat again NOT EVERY PERSON OF ONE RACE LOOKS THE SAME. The fact that you even think that sexuality and race are comparable shows how absolutely ignorant, close minded, and dull your views are.
Also, I didn’t brag about dating different races. I simply said “I’ve dated so many races.” Sorry that set you over the edge, though.
Sexuality: what you’re sexually attracted to
Preference in race: what you’re sexually attracted to
Preference in height: what you’re sexually attracted to
Preference in personality: what you’re sexually attracted to
Just because they don’t all look the same doesn’t mean they don’t all have the same thing in common: their complexion.
If I’m not attracted to dark-skinned people, that’s a part of my sexual preference. SEXUAL. PREFERENCE. Sexual. Preference.
If I’m not attracted to light-skinned people, that’s a part of my sexual preference.
If I don’t want to date someone of a certain race because I’m not physically attracted to them, it’s literally no different than me not wanting to date someone who is shorter than me. It’s just a physical characteristic, yes, but it’s one that matters to me. I’m not sexually attracted to guys that are shorter than me.
I usually try to stay away from these posts, but being a person of colour, this is something that really strikes a chord with me. Here’s why.
Hypothetically, If you want to treat people like objects and say that you won’t have sex with a coloured person because that’s not sexually attractive, fine. That’s preference.
Here’s what’s racist. Coloured people are SO much more than their skin that covers their bones. You could find the man or woman of your DREAMS, but you would totally miss out because he was black or asian. That’s what’s racist. It’s that we don’t get a chance because you are saying that you wouldn’t date us BEFORE you get to know us. Just because of our skin colour. The judgement precedes the knowledge, and that’s prejudice. That’s what’s racist about it.
That is the definition of racism: Being unable to see past a person’s skin colour to see the PERSON. By the way, if you fall in love with a coloured person, all of a sudden, that PERSON becomes your sexual preference. Love is blind, and it doesn’t care about the height, complexion, or shade a person is. Racism isn’t blind, and that’s why this is an issue.
TL;DR: Saying, “I wouldn’t date a coloured person.” equals, “There’s so much more to white people/ I don’t like how I would LOOK standing next to a black guy.”
