How race matters in romance (x)
Responses to Black Women were far less than all races, including by their own race.
KEY FINDINGS OF THE AYI STUDY
- Men from all different races prefer a partner of another race over their own.
- Black men and women get the lowest response rates to their messages.
- Most men prefer Asian women (with the exception of Asian men).
- All women (except black women) are most drawn to white men.
- Asian women seem to most strongly favour advances from white men.
- Men are least likely to respond to ‘likes’ from black women.
- Men respond to women around there times more often than women reply to men’s messages.
Misogynoir and Asian women fetishization rampant in these results
Bottom line: it’s good to be a white man
reasons why we tell people to think critically about their race based preferences.
wow. this upsets me so.
Can’t talk. Traumatized by an animated duck.
Just watched this movie because bishounen ducks. Emotions destroyed. (
Great scene, and based on an actual historical incident in medieval Germany:
When King Conrad III defeated the Duke of Welf (in the year 1140) and placed Weinsberg under siege, the wives of the besieged castle negotiated a surrender which granted them the right to leave with whatever they could carry on their shoulders. The king allowed them that much. Leaving everything else aside, each woman took her own husband on her shoulders and carried him out. When the king’s people saw what was happening, many of them said that that was not what had been meant and wanted to put a stop to it. But the king laughed and accepted the women’s clever trick. “A king” he said, “should always stand by his word.”
Medieval women were BAMFs.
This was always one of my favourite movie scenes as a child (if that’s not telling about how I grew up, I don’t know what is) but the fact that it actually happened makes it 100x better.
