Okay, I totally just baited you to read this blog entry; my bad. But in a recent opinion column in The Sydney Morning Herald, columnist Brendan Shanahan writes a piece criticizing the recent backlash against “Sexual Racism,” AKA “I’m just not into Asian guys/Black girls/Latino transmen” syndrome that you see on personals, gay dating websites, or if you’re John Meyer.
“Sexual attraction is irrational,” Shanahan argues. “If it weren’t then, logically, everyone ought to be compulsorily bisexual … isn’t limiting yourself to one gender as inherently “sexist” as it is “racist” to proclaim that, for instance, you’re not attracted to Chinese men?” Anthony, who sent us the link, doesn’t think so. That’s a “typical Australian attitude.”
