Is it sexist to not want to date someone because of their sex? Does this mean that all heterosexuals and homosexuals are sexist?

I think so. Now, I know that many will say that sexuality is a biological preference, but I think a good argument could be made for a biological basis of racial preferences too.

What do you think?

Depends. Scenario 1: "I won't date a black girl because I simply do not find them very attractive." No. Scenario 2: "I won't date a black girl because she my steal my stuff.". Yes.

I am naturally attracted to women of all different races. I am not attracted to men of any race. No, I'm not sexist. Personal choices in regard to relationships and intimacy have nothing to do with general fair treatment of other people. You're only sexist and/or racist of you allow your personal preferences to influence the general treatment of others.

it's not racist to now want to date someone because of their race. If you aren't attracted to a person then you aren't going to want to date them. Simple as that.

I think op is using this rhetorical question to point out that not preferring someone outside of your race is not racist in any shape way or form. In fact, your preference of race for partner is deeply integrated in your genes so it is normal to choose the same race that you're familliar with

1st. very well put, 2nd, I think people of all sexual preferences should be alowed to ask any1 out that they want and that person can turn them down if they want to and it should not be considered sexist if the person is of a different sexual preference. (if that makes sense) 3rd, cd_rom i swear i saw you on level 58 the other day have you been modded severely?

No... If you're not attracted to someone, it would be pretty dumb to force yourself to date them. If you find them attractive, but don't want to date them just because of their race, then yeah that's probably racist.

Actually no. Although I do think there may be a biological basis for both your racial and sexual preference in a partner, I also think that it's still racist to not date someone because of their race. By that logic, it must be sexist to prefer women over men or vice versa. I'm not sure what to think about the ethical implication of such a statement. I do think though that there are clearly more biological differences between people of the opposite sex than people of different races and that perhaps through these differences, sex discrimination when it comes to selecting a partner is therefore justified, especially for if you're looking for a partner to procreate with, for example.

Well, it's true. I'm not being racist. Black skin may come off as aesthetically unappealing for an individual whereas some black girls, not necessarily because they're black, do steal.

Correct. All persons interested in sex and relationships should be forced to register with a government-run dating agency. They will be assigned dating partners for maximum diversity. And they better damn well like it.

Its just a preference, hey I don't find most Asian women that attractive hence I don't date them. Someone out there will likely think of that as racist, but I think of it as having your own taste 8)

Even #2 isn't racist. It's just a stereotype.

Racism is "I won't date a black girl because black people are inferior".

There are differences between:

stereotype

prejudice

discrimination

racism

Perfect, couldn't have explained it better.

Personally I have my own preferences, but I do know there are exceptions.

If someone doesn't date black girls because he's never seen one who is physically attractive to him, then it's not racism. If someone outright claims that he'll never date a black girl because black girls are unattractive to him, I'd argue that that is an indication of racial prejudice. He can't be sure that black girls will always be unattractive to him, so to write them off like that seems a hasty dismissal to me.

I don't think so. I had my preferences for white and Latina girls but I went on a date with a black girl who happened to be very nice. Not the stereotypical black girl everyone thinks. :P I don't think it's racist nor sexist but just a preference that we develop as we grow up. You should have your own preferences, but don't automatically limit yourself to one or two races. Believe me, sometimes the grass is greener on the other side and as an old saying goes, "love is blind." ;)

That you have a certain sexual orientation does not entail that you are automatically sexist towards people whom you don't find attractive.

why is this board obsessed with race?

And yes it does make you racist to someextent, or at least prejudice, You dont knowthe person, but you;ve decide not date them because of thier ethnicity, Preference suggests you've tried, or atleast experienced being with someone from that race. However if you have a negative physical reaction to some because of thier skin pigmentation, then may have a problem.

I always find rather amusing how all thes inumerable race threads filled with people trying to justify thier prejudices, and then those threads are eventually locked, why? because those people that are trying to justify these prejudices start to comfortable about them and then begin to show thier true colours (no pun intended)

I know that physical is a matter of preference, some people have thier prefered 'types' tall short, skinny, thick etc, but some of you need to start being colour blind

Not racist and or sexist. Just a preference.OneShot112

I agree..I also think that the more people that MIX the less chance that your race will be around in 50 years. At the rate we're going everyone is going to be mixed "white/black"..Just saying that because I feel its the most discussed. So no more white...AND...no more black..is everyone ok with that??

How is not being attracted to other races biologically based? It's almost entirely based on taste and the environment one grows up into. Some white dudes dig asian chicks, some dig latinas, others dig black girls, doesn't matter their biological background.

I wouldn't call it racist. I'd say it'd be the culture that comes with the colour that causes them to form such a preference.

Your preference for attraction is not racist. Racist involves behavior that subjugates or demeans a group of people.

My preferences don't usually revolve around race (even though, I would love to date other races other than my own but being on this site doesn't seem like it will happen anytime soon). I think that is pretty silly because I guess I have seen lots of beautiful people of many races. But I guess not everyone thinks that. I think some people just haven't seen enough of that particular race to be attracted to at least one. But if that's how they feel then whatever. It's sad, though. I still get lumped up with the stereotypical black woman who yells and starts trouble. People keeping their eyes on me while shopping. I probably already purchased and own the stuff they think I am trying to steal anyway. :P

Nope totally a preference. What do you say to those people like myself who prefer to date outside their race? Are they racist towards themselves or their own race? Hardly.

It's not racist, but I notice threads like these seem to focus on black women. If your not into them that's your prerogative but I honestly think this thread just derailed into a thread with rationalisations of why black women aren't preferred by some guys. The fact that no other races are even mentioned admittedly rubs me the wrong way a bit.
