How can anyone be this stupid?
Sociologists have long been interested in the concept of preferences, whether they’re favorite foods or people we’re attracted to. Preferences may appear natural or inherent, but they’re actually shaped by larger structural forces – the media we consume, the people we know and the experiences we have.
The guy’s trying to explore racism within gay dating.
If you told him that being gay were not inherent or natural but was, in fact, shaped by larger structural forces he would denounce you as a hater.
But he insists that a preference for the same race – or another one even – is not innate or natural but is only shaped by larger structural forces.
Insisting upon mutually contradictory beliefs is a sign of mental imbalance, no?
