Here's an example of what I'm talking about. At this site about living overseas, some reasons are listed for living overseas. As you can see, none of them are about social life or dating. Why?

How come I'm the only one who thinks those are primary issues?

BTW, the owner of that site contacted me with an interest to mutually cross-promote our sites. I hope he comes onto this forum, as I've invited him to do so.

Well, getting foreign p***y could be included in his "just for the fun of it" reason. He seems to be making things vague so no patrolling American feminists flame him to death with "Shut up, you loser" speeches.

I think other sites avoid these topics subconsciously because they are really just miniatures of mainstream American culture which implies that men must walk on eggshells around women. Imagine if you picked up an issue of Time magazine of the newstand and saw an ad on the back cover which said "American women suck. Move abroad and finally meet the women you've been dreaming about." It would never happen. Our culture has very strict social controls on information. Anything outside of the mainstream gets bashed into the "loser" category or sued.

Shhhhh. One is not supposed to talk about such taboo subjects. Cliquishness and exclusivity go against common notions of fairness for all and egalitarianism. You can't be bringing these subjects to light or people might begin to recognize how true they are.
