The Japanese is not as interesting as they're making it out to be. The really cool cartoons are the train manner cartoons.

Wouldn't it just be easier to segregate the elevators between male and female?

Most of the men are awkward nerds that live alone in small box-rooms and work for abusive maniac bosses, they have a culture where it's perfectly ok to get shiat-your-shorts drunk regularly as a release, and the women are all hot and subservient.

It'd be like if the USA was entirely populated by that guy in college that masturbated so much his socks were put in a victim support group.

No, actually. The only girl I know who was "almost" raped had the guy sneak up on her dressed all in black with white gloves like out of a 1930's movie. She was surprised he wasn't wearing a big white and black shirt that said "NOT RAPIST" on it.

The real problem with Japan, and the reason their murder rate is comparable to our suicide rate and vice versa is that they're super paranoid and proactive about social order. There's "friendly reminders" everywhere about everything. And, ironically for a country with such a low crime rate, they have fortresses for houses. The guy near me, in a neighborhood I can sleep outside in the park and no one will mess with me, has broken glass in his garden wall and a lot of the house have no shiat metal spikes on their gates. Like the kind you'd find in a D&D pit trap. Nasty bodkin spikes.

So no, Japan is not rapey. But they have advice on everything and it's very stressful if you pay attention to any or all of it.

Actually they are quite rapey. Women have their own subway car because so many were being molested by men on their commute. That is a problem and to ignore it to say "oh it is all overrated" makes you part of the problem.

I thought they got rid of the used panies vending machines, but a friend who moved there provided me a picture that they are indeed alive and well. Japan is made up of a bunch of perverts.

The problem is that sex is censored in Japanese media, so their urges get channeled in weird directions.  Pixelated porn is unhealthy.

hailin: Actually they are quite rapey. Women have their own subway car because so many were being molested by men on their commute.


No they don't.

On select lines the last car of the train is women only for less than two hours in the morning on weekdays. That's a thing they do, yes, and the cite groping as the reason, but it's such an odd time and inconvenient car that the only people who use it are old ladies. I ride it most of the time when I'm headed into Shinjuku because it's it's the closest to the exit when you arrive and, like I said, it's only women only between 7-8:30 AM. the rest of the time it's just Car 1 or 10 depending on the direction the train's going.

Prove it. I've been through every seedy inch of Tokyo's underbelly and I can't find the Breast Milk Bar or the USED panty vending machines. I do find all kinds of clean ones in porn shops, and I know the used panty store, but I've never found the vending machine. So prove it. Link the photo.

That's on highly traveled lines during the hours when the cars are packed with people going to work. It makes perfect sense, and its intended purpose is to give the ladies a break from being packed like sardines against a bunch of strange men who may or may not be able to control their "Oops, I accidentally grabbed your ass" urges. So, yes, the women do have their own car (during peak morning hours) and yes it is used to prevent groping.

Japanese society has an obsession with "cute" and the idea of youth that surrounds it.

I have it on good authority that all rape in japan involves tentacles.

Came here to post this, etc. Read a study one time that showed more women get groped on subways in the USA than Japan, but there is so little other crime in Japan it get blown out of proportion.

Got to spend a few months in Japan when I was in the Navy. Probably the cleanest cities I've ever seen with the exception of Singapore, and the whole time I heard a police siren like once or twice.

I'm a female who lived in Japan for years.

Yes, they are rapey.

Yes, there are women-only cars on the subway, effective during rush hour.

No, there isn't real support, legally or socially, for women who've been attacked. Anecdote time: EVERY SINGLE female friend of mine who grew up there, or lived there for more than a year, has been assaulted at least once (I was twice, once by a work supervisor). The only ones who bothered to bring it to the police were foreigners.

The police told me there was nothing they could do, that they don't handle those issues. Remember, it was totally legal for a husband to beat his wife half to death until just a few years ago, and spousal rape is still legal. Violence against women goes largely unreported, as it's just too private to bring it to the authorities for many; even when it is reported, it's rarely prosecuted. It makes the news when it is.

So, yeah, cutesy posters.

If hentai has taught me anything, it's that Japanese women have boobs the size of basketballs and get off on being molested about 3 seconds after the dick and/or tentacle is forced in.

Yeah, but...why? I know for a fact they take serious things seriously, but they present so much of their culture as a children's pop up book. I can understand sections of it, but I've seen enough Japanese television to know this type of thing is fairly pervasive (and no, not just anime, we get Japanese news and live action shows where I live).

I have family over there (American transplant who married into Japanese family). It really is all about "cute." Middle aged women, and some men, are obsessed with Disney cartoon goods...rugs, sleepwear, decor....all baby stuff. When I last visited, I took note of the cartoon signs they had posted at construction sites. As a safety professional, it was odd to see how they illustrated serious safety issues with such childlike, cartoonish cuteness.

We dropped the bomb on them, and I don't think they ever fully recovered. It's like when a dog falls on its back exposing its stomach (trying to display subservience), or how monkeys offer sex when feeling intimidated (I know that sounds weird, but some do that to avoid confrontation). I think Japan is on its back being cute and begging not to be hurt again.

Witness99: I think Japan is on its back being cute and begging not to be hurt again.


I'd guess that it's the same reason that business men are known for getting piss drunk after work. It's a release. Or rather, an alternative to the reason they'd need a release. Think about all the emphasis on being proper, being honorable, not being a nuisance, etc. If you were pressured and expected by society to be constantly repressed to fit into a certain ideal you'd need an alternative to that in your life to balance out the stress.

That's what this feels like to me. Maybe I'm wrong, I dunno.

The intense grinding pressures of the postwar years meant that parents weren't around to give their children direction into adulthood, so their childhoods took on a general cultural normalcy after a while. And when they graduated into adulthood and the intense grinding pressures of the megacorps forced them to seek escapism, they turned back to their happy place, which eventually led to the golden ages of manga and anime.

Fast forward to the Lost Decade, and you have even more reason for escapism into fantasy. Bleak hopelessness in real life, let's imagine giant robots and cute willing girls; so we got the silver age of anime, that eventually degenerated into niche pedo-pandering once the economy picked back up.

I mean, look at us, as a culture we go watch Transformers and other stupid action movies as adults. Football is the most popular national sport, and hockey a major contender. In the US, we respect bloody instead of cute (although sarcastic is becoming much more popular), but the end result is much the same; we all need escapism when life is too much. And whereas Japan lets their loli/incest freak flag fly, in the west it's known to happen fairly often, but is one of the deepest taboos of society and rarely acknowledged... just like we let our loser failure flag fly, where it's almost as taboo there.

/Not drawing cultural equivalency, but we're all pretty farked up
