    This is not how Catholic doctrine works, unless you count the few decades between Jesus' crucifixion and Paul making clear to all and sundry that divorce was a no-no was "thousand years of trial and error".

    If its been done for thousands of years it must be right... its not like people keep making the same mistakes over and over again, generation after generation. All progress and new thought is bad. The old ways are always the best.

    And, I mean, "trial and error" implies that the Church, until the last few decades, would treat any sort of "trial" or deviation from consecrated-marriage-until-death-with-few-exceptions as legitimate.

    Nah it's a pretty good example of my point tbh. Having a racial preference being on the same level as ****ing exhaust pipes to some.

    And I'm not that picky wrt genres ftr

    I know you weren't saying that, but this line of conversation started with the existence of the Asian genre being used as a case in point for racial fetishisation. Ignoring that there's a genre for most races on these sites, I just thought the equivalence made my point for me.

    If that was just for funzies than perhaps the work mum did on my lels detector was below industry standard.

    I'm suddenly unsure. Can you provide some examples of 'these sites'? I'd like to investigate for myself.

    I think the "Asian" genre in porn is no longer a fetish, it's just an aesthetic preference. But back when I was a horny 14 year old, "asian" genre women were all particularly demure and submissive. I do think if you type "interracial" into the search bar you will see a strong stereotype of black men and various sub-fetishes where those guys are portrayed as either hypersexual or just straight up thugs.

    It's not in the realms of actual racism but it is a bit of an issue IMO.

    Yeah I know the kind of stuff you're talking about. I dunno, I think it's one of those things that looks worse when you're trying to find it, if you're there to consume the content in the spirit in which it was intended (nicest way I could put that) I think it's fine. I struggle to see it doing any direct, real world harm. Again the modern, academic justifications for puritanism and the trend towards demonizing male sexuality are the bigger issues to my mind.

    Will just talk about my preferences since I have no theory on this. Used to be attracted to fair skinned (relatively speaking since this is India we are talking about) women only. Once I came to understand how the cultural stereotype here had lots to do with my preference, I tried to make an effort to care less about fairness. Worked to a certain extent. Dated a couple of dark women. No biggie. Still get more visually stimulated by fair skinned women.
