International dating has long been the base of creating new societies. United States itself is the country of immigrants who married, for the most part, someone from another nation. Any third generation American would have multiple ancestors with various backgrounds, from Irish to Scottish, English to Greek and Italian. The modern Australia, as we know it, developed by migrants. We have many members on Elena’s Models who have some Russian or Ukrainian roots. Thus, these men are curious about dating Eastern European women.
However, when it’s about the modern day online personals and men talking to women in other countries, somehow these basic realities are forgotten. A U.S. female writer who herself moved to Canada to be with her boyfriend thinks she can label other people dating internationally “traffickers” or mail order brides. How does it work? There is an underlying idea that people chatting to men or women in other countries must have something wrong with them or have improper intentions. And any means are justified to find a proof.
Here is a report by an industry insider, C. Burns.
Exposing the liberal media bias against international dating
By C. Burns
The mainstream media hates international dating. They call the beautiful young women mail order brides, a term which they have turned into a vicious pejorative. They call the Western men seeking to date and marry these young ladies even nastier terms painting them as rapists, kidnappers, and sex traffickers.
Usually, international dating advocates must accept the abuse, but recently the mainstream media made a big mistake this time. They cited sources that could be double checked.
In the Spring and Summer of 2015 a series of mainstream articles breathlessly recorded a Reddit discussion about international dating. One salacious headline on the Reddit promised, “Confessions of the men who paid thousands to marry mail-order brides… but who lived to regret it.” Another mainstream media source called the discussion, “The Reddit Thread That Shocked the Nation.”
However, when the staff of International Love Scout, a site that covers international dating news, went back and actually read through the nearly 10,000 comments that was not the case. The overwhelming majority of comments were either partially or completely positive! The selective quotations and prejudiced interpretations were stunning, because they were so blatant.
It was amazing. Many of the most negative comments were pulled out of context from longer quotations that were in fact positive. If anything should “Shock the Nation”, it is the nasty bias of the mainstream media.
But it is also sad, because of the scorn and contempt thrown on many successful marriages by these one-sided attacks. It is a LONG article, but if you care about exposing the liberal media against international dating you should check it out here.
It shows the lies and distortions that critics have used to paint international dating as an evil.
