Is interracial/interethnic romance acceptable?

Not only they're of a different ethnicity, they're also a different religion, which is far more scandalous. Ironically (and probably also due to my influence lol), both became atheists during highschool, so the religious difference don't really matter to them personally. But the boy's parent (which, admittedly, is a broken family) is a radical Islamist that views music as haram and cut off his earphone with a scissor when he was caught listening to music. So if everything worked out until after college (which I have my doubts, but who knows), he plans to just move to Australia where there are also better jobs, "convert" to Christianity (which won't be a problem since he's an atheist) and marry.

Had I been chosen as the school valedictorian during the graduation ceremony, I actually planned to give a speech to openly endorse inter-religious relationships in front of all the parents, pointing out that the Islamist-linked leader of the opposition is also actually the offspring of a happy, inter-religious couple. Sadly I came up third in the ranks, so the dream wasn't realized :p


Where do you live where radical Islam just springs up like that?

A metropolitan area in Bandung, the economic and political center of West Java, which is the most populous province of Indonesia :D . (Admittedly West Java, dominated by the Sundanese, is far more conservative than Central and East Java, dominated by the Javanese. Thank you NU and fuck you PKS).

What

Yeah there are people out there who think that as a result of systemic oppression and different dynamics of power between racial groups, it's impossible for there to ever be full genuine consent. It's a pretty dumb idea that treats people like they are children incapable of making their own decisions, especially in regards to whom they decide to date.

Yes, of course, it is acceptable.

From a biological, genetic perspective, genetic diversity is preferable. If you had a kid, who was 25% European, 25% African, 25% Asian, and 25%, say, Inuit, that kid would be a genetically stronger individual than I am, at 100% European. Not "Superior" but "Stronger" because they would be more well-adapted to all potential threats than I am, and more able to take nutrients from all foods, as they'd have genes from all continents. If anyone was going to survive a mass-extinction event, bet on that kid. According to Ancestry, I'm almost pure French genetically. Unless the next mass extinction event is caused by the Black Plague or requires subsisting entirely on bread and wine, I am doomed.

I could probably cite off a list of common genetic defects faced by northern and western Europeans that show we're not superior to any other race, but whatever.

If you like a Croat girl, then like a Croat girl. Slav love is right love. One you go Slav, your heart is solved.

No offence to your mother or anything, but the idea that anyone should feel pressured to date based on race is the most detestable idea I can think of.

I think so because based on personal experiences of my friends and myself, there is little more beautiful in this world than two people being able to love each other, as their distinct cultural heritages being able to not just stay out of conflict with each other, but complement each other, is amazing. It's so perfectly human, it shows our cultural values and ethnic identities don't have to conflict, and can in fact live in harmony.

There is nothing wrong about preferring to date people of your own race or ethnicity, but you'd be missing out on a lot of life and the beauty of humanity by setting boundaries like that.

....then again, I guess I'm just really a Catholic. Universality is my biggest turn-on :/. Talk cosmopolitan to me girl.

I think that you're making the mistake of assuming all these ethnicities are homogeneous when science suggests that you can be more closely related to someone in a different race than another person within it. There are certainly strong genetic traits in people of all races (at the risk of sounding like an eugenicist) but I would hesitate to attribute genetic strength or lack thereof to someone based on their ethnic mix. On some level, we are all heavily mixed.

Why not? My father married someone from a different "race" and I haven't dated someone from even my own ethnicity in like 15 years?(Mostly because there's barely any people of my ethnicity in this country or in my age range.) Don't mind it at all. The only things I do notice is the difference between cultures, but hey you can always learn from each other.

I do believe that such relationships can even strengthen the genes of the offspring so to say. But hey; I only read it somewhere and it might as well be completely untrue.

Sure. Skin tone is scientific. But our racial categories are all invented and they change constantly. Making decisions based on them is definitely not scientific.

Oh, yeah. Nobody who anthropologists or biologists take seriously argues that race is a thing. The science there is about as settled as climate change.

On some level, we are all heavily mixed.


I mean, yes, few people are totally homogenous. But more diversity is attributable to a wider genetic gene-pool. I get that we're not starkly different, but limiting yourself to only date people within your own race certainly limits your offsprings total genetic variability. More options= more chances for variation. Heavily endangered species, like the White Rhino, which is functionally extinct, if they ever recovered, would suffer tremendously because there are so few individuals in the species, that even if they manage to come back, the genetic variability of the species would be far less than their healthy, pre-human levels. All I'm saying is, genetic diversity is good for a species and having a smaller population (Say only Europeans) would limit your species total possible diversity. There are some unique traits, genes, besides skin color, that you can find in a population. That's how gene tests work at all. I mean, some if not most of those unique traits are neutral, and contribute nothing to us. Most strongly positive traits, we mostly all share, because they spread through evolutionary pressures. But when it comes to survival, something might prove useful later down the road that you don't realize. So a trait that is unique to say, East Asians, which does not have an obvious benefit, could have one in the future. Maybe.

Honestly, the only point I was trying to make is that a wider, more diverse gene pool is always a benefit for a species. Even if we're not totally homogenous, I don't see how having a wider-array of people to date would not be genetically advantageous.

...Not that people should be choosing dates based on genetic diversity of their species or their potential offspring.
