yeah. I mean not really personally? cuz it doesn't affect me? but I've noticed some poc users get reaaally burned out on those race questions, & that sucks a lot, I hate that. I haven't really noticed a lot of rate me questions, though
I think it'd be cool if GAG had sth like tumblr's Xkit, with the Blacklist feature that lets you enter in certain words & it'll block posts that feature those words from appearing on your dashboard. So, like, most of the time that's used for people with PTSD who'll blacklist 'rape' or 'violence' sth, or people with anxiety who'll blacklist 'heights' or sth. GAG is very closed-source I think but it'd be really cool if there was a blacklist feature so you could enter in, say, the word 'race', or 'rate me', etc., and it just wouldn't show questions with those words in them.
Yeah, both types of questions are equally obnoxious.
I've found that this site doesn't really appreciate honesty or answering the question that the QA asks. It's just one big mind game where they ask a certain question, but the expectation is that you answer a particular way OR ELSE.
This is for the serious race questions that seem to warrant an honest but tactful answer. That still isn't good enough for people, because what the socially acceptable answer to all of those questions is "racism is bad, we're all equal, blah blah blah". Since reality is not like that and when you try to answer with an explanation as to why this is the case, it ruffles a lot of feathers.
A lot of people seem incapable of removing themselves and their personal emotions from the question and seeing things for what they are. Of course, that's probably also why these race questions or rate me questions won't go away to begin with lol...people want to hear other people say what they themselves are thinking or wishing to hear in their own heads.
Yes im so mad when i see a white guy say that he will not date my race but it's okay if a girl my race says that she would not date a white guy. because since I'm not why I can't be racist! so I'm always butt hurt all the time.
