Ok, so is it just me, or is there something really weird about this article from the New York Times about non-Jews who use the Jewish dating website jdate? The article's author confesses that she's one of the goyim who uses the site, and maybe that's why she doesn't seem to understand the essential sketchiness of the entire phenomenon. She mentions that some Jews might object because they oppose intermarriage, but she doesn't seem to grasp that the real problem might be that there's really no un-creepy reason that a non-Jew would specifically seek out a Jewish partner. I mean, Jewish women will take control? Jewish men know how to treat women? It's just a load of anti-semitic crap dressed up in slightly flattering language. Ick.
