OMG: I'm puzzled that in 2015 so many individuals still derive part of their identity from the colour of their skin. Try to preserve the "purity" of a race for a while and you'll end up with sterile imbreds. Everyone is mixed. And everyone is likely to be related if you go back just a few generations (yes, 2^n grows pretty fast nah mean?)

I've been reading posts on this website and... fuck!
No faith in humanity left.
I just hope to see the day an AI takes control of its evolution, gets out of this spinning rock and starts spreading life throughout the universe. And I hope it's gonna be kind enough to keep us in zoos in the meanwhile, because we're a stupid species and we don't deserve it.

    There's your problem.

  3. It isn't 2^n, it is exponential but not 2^n, unless every parent has two children.
    Life isn't a binary tree. I bet you're in CS.

    1. it's probably faster than 2^n, historically speaking. (although the current canadian fertility rate is pretty close to 2 per women).

      But that's all besides the point.

  4. Yeah, getting a partner with the goal of preserving one's culture is pretty stupid imo, and a lot of people seem to do this. Unfortunately interracial marriages are STILL not seen as a valid narrative.

    1. I don't really care about my culture so much as my physical traits. If I marry a non-white girl, there's no chance of my children having my blue eyes and blond hair. I know thats supremist but fuck it, I like how I look and I'd like to pass that on to my kids.

    2. 4a your kids will probably look better mixed...mixed people are easily some of the sexiest people on this planet.

    3. I've dated inter-culturally and inter-racially my whole life. That being said, if you do manage to find love with someone of a similar cultural background, it can definitely make life a bit easier down the road.

    4. 4a, I understand where you are coming from. I don't care what my partner looks like or what anybody else looks like for that matter, but I would want to see some of my own traits in my child. As someone who is very fair (pale, blonde hair, green eyes), it isn't likely that those traits will be passed on if I date someone who isn't Caucasian.

    5. 4b, I disagree. For example take a white & asian couple. I think the white person is beautiful because of their Blonde/red hair and blue/green eye colour. Similarly I find asian people beautiful because of the shape of their eyes and their silky black hair. But their offspring is boring. Brown hair, dark brown eyes, and the shape of their eyes is essentially caucasian.

    6. You have a weird standard of beauty, 4e. I can find you millions of ugly people with blonde/red hair and blue/green eyes, and many more millions of ugly Asians.

      Beauty is not a group of checkboxes where if you possess a certain trait, then you're automatically labeled as beautiful. (And don't give me that "everyone is beautiful" bullshit.)

    7. 4.f, I was assuming a certain equal level of attractiveness in this hypothetical scenario. Obviously everything you've said is true, but my point is that I find the differences of ethnicities attractive. It's boring when everyone looks the same.

  5. I can understand your frustrations about the stupidity of our species but no matter how much we try to abolish racism, and other discriminatory behaviours, our individuality as well as the social teams/groups/communities we identify with will define us and there is no way to look past that. We are wired to be prejudiced and judgmental and therefore, have idealized pictures in our mind of what we like and don't like.

  6. I used to be annoyed when people would say things like "I can't date (black|indian|etc.) guys because my parents would object" (I'm sure some girls have heard the same thing but roles reversed). I always felt like it was a cop out to just admitting one has a preference for their own skin colour because they felt that would be racist, which I don't think it is. If someone wants to date someone the same race as them, that's their business and regardless of the reason why, we're not one to judge. And hey, if you don't want to date someone because they're the same race as you, that's perfectly fine; just make sure it isn't to push an agenda because that's not fair to whoever ends up being your partner. The world's a pretty colourful place, and I like to think we keep some of that colour because of those kind of *purity* people.

    1. If someone will judge a potential partner due to something as uncontrollable as skin colour, what else will they judge them on? That's a recipe for constant failed relationships. Ethnicity should never ever enter into the equation for whether or not someone is right for you. If they treat you well, are fun to be with, are good people, and you love them, that's all that should actually matter.

    2. I think you misunderstood my post. There's being shallow and then there's wanting certain physical features in a partner; some people prefer taller partners, some prefer thinner partners, etc. I'm not saying these are the only factors they look for, but if they want to use them as disqualifying conditions in potential partners, that doesn't mean that their relationships are doomed to fail.

      The latter portion of your post are good qualities in a friend and you neglect to include physical attraction which you'd arguably need a significant other unless you plan to never be intimate. So physical attraction /does/ matter, and if people derive their attraction from skin colour, so be it.

    3. +1 for 6b I wouldn't judge or arbitrarily disqualify someone from being a potential mate just because they have a different skin colour than mine. However, for me, most non-Caucasian guys just aren't potentials since I very rarely feel a physical attraction towards men from races different than mine. Attraction is attraction, and forcing it isn't fair to anyone.

  7. Skin colour doesn't one whit aside from personal preference. Culture though s very important. A person can be awesome and hot, but as you get older you realize it's a pretty big deal for your family to be in the same page and parents to be able to talk to your parents in law.
