As you're well aware, Tumblr will ban all NSFW content by December 17th. While I don't think it's a good idea to punish everyone for Tumblr staff's incompetence. Also, we can announce that we set a wedding date!!! So this whole next year will be dedicated to wedding planning. Hopefully we won't fall off. A recent study on data from a dating app found all women except black women were most drawn to white men, and men of all races (with one.

The rainbow flag is whiter than it appears. This manifests itself in numerous ways.
Some are rejected because of their ethnicity; on the other hand, some are objectified because of it. Once, at a nightclub, he was relentlessly pursued by a fellow patron. Eventually, he was asked: Indians are not my type. Others speak of their experiences of being rejected by door staff at LGBT venues. He says it has got worse since the Orlando nightclub massacrewhere the gunman was Muslim. His Arab heritage was objectified and stereotyped by some would-be lovers, even down to presuming his sexual role.
After launching a petition against the event, she received threats of violence. LGBT publications are guilty too. Dean stopped buying mainstream gay magazines two years ago. While LGBT people are much more likely than heterosexuals to suffer from mental distressthe level is even higher among ethnic minorities. Undoubtedly, racism plays a role.
But to your point about not seeing troves of men flocking to Asian women: I dunno, I feel like I see a strong "preference" for Asian women in real life. I put "preference" in quotes, because I think there's a very fine line that teeters between preferences and fetishization, but that could be a whole other conversation.

But the question that I'd like to see people get at is the difference between the online and offline worlds when it comes to these preferences.
Maybe this is an app just for weirdos who love Asian chicks and don't love black women? I am annoyed for the black women who seem to be clearly getting discriminated against by these online picture-scanners.
And speaking from an Asian woman point of view, I found my time in the analog dating world to be one in which men clearly favored white women or Latinas.
No Asians, no black people. Why do gay people tolerate blatant racism?
I am really skeptical about the odds being ever in my favor, to borrow a Hunger Games line. I think with all these new apps rolling in, we're going to learn more about relationships and preferences.
