Sexual Racism

We're making our own stand on discrimination in the way of sexual racism in Dating Profiles by GLBT people. Please read our Sexual Racism article for more information.

Our profiles have an "Ethnic Preference" section where you can specify Ethnicities you are interested in (for whatever reason). This of course is not the ideal solution but it is an attempt to stop phrases appearing in our Dating Profiles like "No Africans", "Sorry - not interested in Europeans", and "No Asians - no offence just not my thing". Well we do take offence and we request you to specify who you *ARE* interested in rather than who you're not.

This will only work of course if ALL members respect the stated preferences of advertisers - and this is not restricted to just Ethnicity, it inlcudes all other preferences too!
