not to be a feminist white knight or anything, but i always notice that women always get descriminated or stereotyped for having dating preferences yet we men always get away with it clean.
for example, when a man who's not black only dates black women they say he has the "jungle fever". but a woman in the other hand who isn't black and only dates black men will always get labelled negatively such as a "mudshark", "coal burner", etc.
anyways i dont know why but to me it seems like society stereotypes women in situation like these, but when it comes to us men it just views it as a "natural instinct" we have within us. but what's so hard to analyzed that women have these instincts too?

I hear you. I actually sat back and thought about it. Besides the lingering patriarchy and womens position in society I thought that it's because some women often deny or downplay their preference instead of owning up to it. "i like tall/rich/(insert preference) guy, BUT personality is the most important" sounds like someone trying to apologize for what they like and give (unpurposefully) hope where there is none. Similar to the "Where are the good/nice guys at". Some women just aren't honest. I think that the more women own their preferences the less descrimination there will be0
