My “you” was generalized. I should’ve written, “someone saying they don’t find”. My bad, lesson learned.
Not being attracted to a race (I don’t mean features of some members in a race. I mean the race itself as a whole because not all members of a race share every feature. For example, not all black people have 4C type curls), is learned. It’s not biological, which is why I compared to a person saying they hate black people. Both hating a race and not preferring a race is learned (i.e. race as a whole and not some members with certain features.).
On the topic of race which is what my original comment had to do with before this rabbit whole formed:
Not being attracted to a race, not features of some members of a race, is learned. It’s not innate. Sexuality and feature based attraction is not what my original comment was about. My attraction comment had to do with race, since race is in the title of the discussion.
Like certain features and sexes/genders is not what I was getting at because not all members of a race share the seem features. Not all black people are dark skin. So if someone says they’re not attracted to dark skin, as offensive and hurtful as that is, it’s not writing off/excluding an entire race. In fact, many races have dark skin people.
My original comment had to do with people who say they’re not attracted to a race rather than features of some members in a race. Cause to say I’m not attracted to people with big noses doesn’t exclude an entire race, it just excludes some members of that race. Saying I’m not attracted to black people, excludes that entire race.
Yes, you do miss out on what dating that race could offer. And by miss out I mean you don’t get what you could get, even if it’s not what you were looking for since every race has something different to offer.
Not eating things with B12 in it makes me miss out on the benefits of B12. I may not like things with B12 nor care for it has to offer, but that still doesn’t mean I’m not missing out on the benefits of B12. Missing out being, losing an opportunity to enjoy or get an advantage from something.
