    I've lived here for five years now and I can't understand how this shit makes it out into public places without somebody thinking it's a bad idea.

    Honest question; how do young Japanese girls feel about this aspect of culture?

    apparently most Japanese are embarrassed of the impression they get from anime culture.

    The majority of them hate, but a few of them use it in their favor to get attention from the guys. It's weird. The ones that hate it don't dare speak up about it as it's a man's world here and other women will distance themselves from the girl speaking out to avoid the same social fallout.

    It's fucked here.

    How is it any different that every major American female newscaster has to wear something that shows off her (required) long, tan legs while she tells you about the uproar in Ukraine? When is the last time you saw a male newscaster's legs?
    Women are objectified in every country. Some are just more overt about it than others. Honestly I like that the Japanese choose not to use some facade to attempt to make it more palatable. At least everyone is on the same page and we aren't arguing that her micro-skirt is a "business-cut" so she can sell her feminism on the evening news.

    Men run the world and women will always be treated like this. Sad, but true.

    Yeah, but it's much worse here. Just last month a female government offical was addressing the federal government body about women needing more access to aid for working Moms. While she was addressing them, she was being heckled by those very people saying things like "Can't you conceive a baby?" and "Can't you find a man to marry you? Why don't you just get married?" Laughs are heard all around.

    If that happened in The U.S. people would lose their jobs. The only reason this guy apologized was because the press used software to identify his voice. He still has his job and he wasn't punished in any way.

    First off, please don't think I'm trying to assume the role of resident BUF misogynist. I've been married to the same gal for nearly 20 years so between her being a high school teacher and us having a teenage daughter I'm waist deep in women's rights issues. I support them fully but I also recognize the status quo isn't going anywhere.

    Check this statistic out:
    (This is from Fortune magazine)

    It's a boy's club and will be for a long time to come. You can't blame either sex, men want it this way and women overwhelmingly choose service related college degrees:
    [​IMG]
    You see the fact that women outnumber men in college degrees now (57% I think) but that's misleading. The men are becoming the engineers, scientists, businessmen while the women make the vast majority of social workers, teachers, and nurses.

    That's why I say that men run things. There's also this thing I call the "7-11" effect that women need to understand also. It's pretty simple but almost totally lost on women when I try to explain it...

    Men have spend untold generations making war. As such we have deeply ingrained responses to what we perceive as threats. I watched a video where two random dudes were in line at a 7-11. They didn't know each other at all. A third man in front of them pulls a knife out and robs the store clerk. The two random dudes make eye contact, one simply nods to the other and it's understood that they are now a team and it's time to neutralize the threat (which they did together). Men are fantastic at forming up against a threat and they will fight full-strength until it's beaten.

    Gay marriage, LGBT, women's rights...none of that stuff directly affects men as a whole so they largely ignore it as a 'threat'. I just don't see a way that women will overcome the gender disparity without triggering a threat response from men. In some ways it's already happening small-scale as many more men are choosing not to get married. They see it as too much financial risk versus the reward (companionship, sex) since marriage success is pretty much a coin flip now.

    Women may account for 4.8% of CEOs, but then men under 5"7' also only account for 2.7% (more than 90% are above average global male height).

    Welcome to demographics.

    I saw that too. I think the average height for a CEO is something like 6'-2" (off the top of my head :rimshot:).

    Japan has some serious issues with their younger generation too. BBA, is it as bad as it's portrayed here? I see it reported that many teens are nearly shut-ins and don't go outside?

    What is it you're trying to accomplish when you explain this "theory" to women, and why do they need to understand it?

    It doesn't seem logically sound to me. In your own example, the two men recognize the threat and neutralize it, but later you say that men ignore things that don't effect them as threats. It can't be both ways.

    If women's rights, gay rights, civil rights, etc. are largely being ignored by (white) men, then why have those movements succeeded as much as they have? The status quo has changed.

    You say that men are choosing not to get married. I'm sure that's true, but women are also choosing not to get married because they're allowed to get jobs and be financially independent. Ignoring that, I don't see how men choosing not to marry is a threat response against women. If men are "withholding" marriage from women, that implies that marriage is more beneficial to women than it is to men, as if it's some sort of bonus that men can deprive women of. Given that marriage is largely favourable to men, that doesn't make much sense at all. Our definition of the family unit is changing, but that doesn't mean there's some sort of backlash going on.

    I am a porn expert as well Mr. Albert :D

    They have gotten better over the years with the blurry vagina pixels. Some still censor but I think it's just for show honestly.
