Some of these stereotypes play out most obviously on online dating sites, where we often judge one another in nanoseconds based on a single photo.Online, I see so many demanding that their partners not have any trace of femininity ...There's so much more to being a man than fitting a narrowly enforced view of masculinity," Johnson explained.
" Johnson hopes his work will raise awareness for anyone dealing with the pitfalls of interracial dating.Part of that, he said, will begin with his own self-acceptance to undo the damage years of dating stereotypes have brought on him."I want people to take away from this work that this is real, that it doesn't 'happen to everyone,'" Johnson explained to . "It's probably happened to your black gay friend, the black girl at your office, your Latina friend, or the Asian girl you messaged on Ok Cupid. It's this kind of exoticizing and tokenization that inspired Johnson to make the documentary. I've dated men of all colors, shapes and sizes, but it seemed that white men habitually said reckless, racist things to me as part of their approach," Johnson told One reason such pickup lines are so insidious is because they play on long-established stereotypes of the black gay community."I guess the biggest stereotype is that black men are just penises with Timberlands attached, and that whatever we have to offer sexually is our only value," Johnson told ."For the black gay community, the self-imposed stereotype is that there's only one way to be a gay black man.
