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.

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.

I don't see any tentacles in the images, so I'm confused.

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

doglover: abhorrent1: Is Japan so rapey that they need this? WTF is wrong with that place?

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.

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

That would certainly make it easier for the rapist.

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.
