Online Dating Rights. Mail Order Brides

FOUR REASONS American men seek romance abroad: Prague, Ha Long Bay, Red Square, small villages in Latin America. Somehow meeting a Czech, Vietnamese, Russian or Peruvian/Colombian/Brazilian woman for a date at one of these exotic places is incomparably more exciting than meeting a hometown girl at the local coffeeshop. Opponents of a man's right to meet foreign women online never stop to consider how enjoyable it is to travel/work/live abroad and learn new cultures and languages while seeking a marriage partner.

Today I saw a commercial for an upcoming show featuring "mail order bride" romance tours on the Oprah Network (OWN).  It will no doubt be peppered with hyperbole, metaphors of American men "buying" foreign brides and stories of abuse, exploitation and the typical media-party line on international romance.  It will be on the show "Our America" on Tuesday night at 10 Eastern time on OWN. If anyone has more information please fill us in.

I cringe every time I hear another "mail order bride" documentary hitting the news media.  It usually means more laws, regulations and government nanny police-state policies are on the way.

There seems to be a fascination with this topic. Its like the general population has to be reminded of it on a regular basis. Probably because nearly all people do not give a rats ass about it.

On March 15th, 2011, A Foreign Affair will be featured on Our America with Lisa Ling on the OWN Network (Oprah Winfrey Network). Our America is an exploratory show that delves into some of the most controversial issues in our country.

If not for the likes of the TJC and NOW, this would not be a "most controversial issue." These groups keep reviving the topic as an issue.

 Lisa Simmons, doctoral research project "Marriage Migration and Markets: International Matchmaking and International Feminism" reveals the media's demonizing campaign against International Matchmaking.

Anyone who is really serious to learn about International marriage and romance should read Simmons insights that covers unmapped territory in the arena of the International matchmaking's the BIBLE of International Love and romance written courageously by someone with a stature analogous to a modern Eleanor Roosevelt.

It takes courage and integrity to stand up and tell the truth much to the disdain of the feminists working with their lecherous advocacy groups. Simmons correctly nails the media view and the advocacy approach on pg 5.

To understand the widespread view of matchmaking as some form of social ill, we must see the advocacy community’s perspective as it has been influenced by the media attention. The twin concerns of immigration fraud and exploitation of women are key themes that run through all of the media coverage (Ferraro, 1986; Henderson, 1995). The reporting however, is suffused with
assumptions that view the male perpetrator's of the industry with contempt and view the female“injured” with pity. The portrait that emerges is a one-dimensional cast of characters including callous agency owners, lecherous male customers, hapless female victims, and conspiratorial third world governments.

The problem here is that the media's fascination and the advocacy approach go hand in hand to influence policy makers to enact laws based on faulty information, and twisted facts and personal opinions. Regardless, the government has no legitimate right to regulate (and thus restrict) International communication, romance, love and marriage.

One can easily predict that the TV program about International matches will show these relationships in a very bad light- more fodder to get the public & politicans fired up for IMBRA round 2.
