“Swirling” seems to be a term that is used to describe any interracial or intercultural relationship, but all around the interwebs when I see “swirl” used, it’s regarding a black/white mixed race couple.
My husband is white, I am black, my son is biracial, however, I am not “down with the swirl.” This term is almost as annoying to me as “jungle fever” though it’s much less racially insensitive. He’s a man, who happens to be white, that I love and am choosing to do life with.
I’m pro interracial everything but I’m not down with the “swirl” and I never will be, no matter how Irish my husband.
I encourage all women who’ve emailed me about the topic to drop the label as well.
When you see the name of the website you might think “What is Swirl?
And whatever I did to “get” my husband is what they must do as well. I love that a person’s color doesn’t automatically determine their mate’s color. It was illegal for my husband and I to be married, not so long ago.
As if letting me know he likes black women was supposed to make me jump into his lily white arms with gratitude that he finds my skin color worthy of his lust.
My cousin recently told me that I was a “tumblr celeb.” …my maternity photo shoot images were plastered all over “interracial tumblr” blogs. Not a variety, mind you, it was namely, black women trolling for non-black (mostly white) men.
If you are looking for well-designed, functional, and trustworthy venue among interracial websites then Swirlr should be your choice.
From the very first second of exploitation, you realize that this site is the one to introduce you to your future partner.
