    I don't disregard it. My contention is the notion of putting it forward as an accurate reflection of reality.

    Use your imagination. Jews, as a people, have achieved remarkable representation in the arts and sciences. They dominate the Nobel Prize category. Recent research is showing that their representation in math competitions for youth is declining, and that they're no longer so dominant in science programs nor in other measures of intellectual power. There is a large degree of concern about the high out-marriage rate in the Jewish community.

    So how should Jews balance the principle of Liberty against their desire to maintain a cohesive Jewish identity? Should Jewishness disappear from the Earth in order to enhance liberty? Should the remarkable fruit produced by Jewish intellect be lost to humanity in order to have liberty be expressed more fully?

    Can there not exist such a concept as "objectively ugly?"

    I get it, you want to restrict discussion to people basing their decisions on philosophical principles, but there are plenty of people about who inform their world view by looking at reality. You're taking a religious approach - divorce facts from faith - and others are more comfortable taking a scientific approach - bring in reality and let's see what I think of what I discover.
    Use whatever gibberish you like to justify your off-topic data, I'm still going to call it off-topic.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    And seeing how I don't have those totalitarian impulses, I'm not going to try to stop you from doing that.

    Someday you'll get it through your head how foolish you're making yourself look when you say things like that. Until then, you'll continue to entertain me. Dance, monkey, dance.

    There... uhh... Might actually be something to that.

    I believe studies have been conducted which show that men of basically all races, except Africans themselves, tend to rate African women as being less objectively attractive than those of other races.

    On the flip side of that, African men tend to be rated as being more attractive than men of other races by women regardless of their race.

    The suggested reason for this, IIRC, was that African peoples tend to carry more testosterone than other races on average. This results in their men being perceived as being "manlier" than the norm, but, unfortunately, simply happens to have the same effect on their women as well.

    Go figure.

    I'll see if I can't dig up a link.

    Mankind still has Asians, and they have xenophobic tendencies with regard to relationships.
