Dating preferences women
A number of first-person accounts, including Michelle Ofiwe in Tinder found a reason to reckon with its role in society earlier this summer.In a login video exclusive to Hong Kong users, Tinder showed a user swipe left only once on the only Asian male in the commercial. Though the company said in its apology that “it was not our intention” and that “we see in retrospect how the content could be seen as insensitive,” it provided proof that the struggles of dating as a member of a marginalized group are invisible to everyone else. Some women like people with blue eyes, some guys like girls with short hair. While the fetishizing and discrimination of entire races in the realm of dating is wrong, it’s also something an overwhelming amount of people are guilty of.America’s first Asians endured discrimination from whites who felt their jobs were stolen, so their effeminate clothes, alien languages, and smaller physical features became targets.
Basic knowledge of human history, particularly American history, reveal where and how the alienation of black women and Asian men began.As a black woman you are scary, inadequate, ugly or hyper-sexualized – and you just have to accept it.”Asian men have had a vastly different cultural experience in the Americas.Although not subject to the indignities of enslavement, Asian immigrants during 19th-century westward expansion formed the basis for today’s prejudices against a cheaper-to-hire foreign working class.Black women and Asian men make up two demographics that have been long stigmatized as not-ideal sexual and romantic partners. It’s that the app compiles data on the quick preferences, and prejudices, of millions around the world, exposing an uncomfortable and racist reality.Established in 2004, a whole six years prior to Tinder, the dating site OKCupid ensured its longevity when it sought help from Tinder in 2013 to implement the swipe into its own platform.
