Sometimes, men even use foods as metaphors for entire ethnic groups: “No rice” to deter Asian men, “no spice” to keep the Latinos away, and “no curry” to tell Indians they don’t have a shot. ” Others have argued that it is impossible to separate the language of so-called sexual racism from racism in other spheres of life.
Those who deploy these disclaimers defend themselves from accusations of “racism” by claiming that they merely have “preferences” for certain races over others.

Debates around “sexual racism,” as researchers have labeled it, are particularly heated within the gay community, although it is certainly a source of controversy in heterosexual circles as well.

On gay dating apps like Grindr and Scruff, some men post blunt and often offensive disclaimers on their profiles such as “no oldies,” “no fems,” and “no fatties.” Among the most ubiquitous are racial disclaimers like “no blacks” and “no Asians,” which are most frequently posted by white men but, as Edwards’s case proves, not always.

A modest baronial mansion and estate of NE Stirling, Leny lies to the north of Kilmahog, 1¼ miles (2 km) northwest of Callander.

The Pass of Leny, 2½ miles WNW of Callander, strikes north-by-westward to Loch Lubnaig; takes up the Callander and Oban railway; is traversed by the impetuous northern head-stream of the Teith; and has a narrow, alpine character, flanked by wooded precipices, and overhung on the W side by the bold acclivi. It formed in olden times a portal to the Highlands, so strong that a few brave men could have held it against an army, and is described by Sir Walter Scott in his Legeen of Montrose.—Ord. Leny House began as an L-plan tower house in 1513, was strengthened in 1691 and largely rebuilt 1845-46 by David Bryce (1803-76) as a Jacobean-style mansion. Leny was long the property of the Buchanan family, most notable amongst whom was Francis Buchanan (1752 - 1829) who explored NE India, wrote several works of natural history and introduced many unusual plants to the grounds at Leny.The grounds include sundial (c.1630) and a walled-garden dating from the 18th century.The site of the old Leny Castle lies a half-mile (0.8 km) to the southeast next to the A84 trunk road.” suggests that the answer to that question is probably “yes.” Sex researchers Denton Callander, Christy Newman, and Martin Holt asked over 2,000 gay and bisexual Australian men how they felt about race and dating through an online survey.
