So what this piece is saying is... every single man should book a flight to Japan to bag some fine young thing (considering none of the apparently have boy friends).

That's what I'm getting from this.

I'll get us some plane tickets, you bring the beer.

Not really, I'm engaged, but I likes to make the funnies

That last bit reminded me of this for some reason:

Also, I have a woman as well... >.>

Waaghpowa:
In my experience, the absence of a relationship was due to chicks going for the douche bags, not from my lack of trying. After a while you start feeling indifferent. Unfortunately I'm in that age range where woman are, for lack of a better term, "growing up".

I live in a town filled with gweedos (However the hell you spell that). I swear it's like Jersey Shore her sometimes.

I love how they automatically attribute the inability to get a girlfriend to being a shut in caused by interests in video games/anime etc. Because that's all the stuff does right? There couldn't possibly be any other reason for someone to be a "shut in".

You think you got it bad? Japans women are like that till the day they die. They can only date the hot looking guy, as if the guy looks in the least bit unattractive, its a huge social taboo there.

I AM SORRY I AM SO LAME D:

From what I keep hearing of Japan it seems they have some serious cultural issues going on, maybe thats what you get when an ancient civilization barely gets anything from the rest of the world, and then gets blasted full force for fifty years, or maybe thats just silly supposition. *shrugs*.

On a side not, it seems to me that the guys the US military has over there probably don't have many problems finding dates besides the language barrier.

Sometimes woman never "grow up" as well and constantly make poor choices in a man. If it's a big social taboo thing in Japan, it makes it even sillier to suggest that it's the cause of video games and anime for this. Of course they're not going to blame their culture, no no no...

Eh, the solution is easy. Japan too few people, China too many. Import Chinese.

Can't wait till we get fuckable robots.

Why do I never get tired of this joke?

Well, if what I've read about Japanese society is to be believed (let's just go with it as true, even if it's not, for arguments sake), then Japanese women only date good looking guys with high paying jobs. Or medium looking guys with high paying jobs. And they take as much money as they can from their husbands, leaving them with something like $10 a day for lunch and keeping the rest for themselves.

If that was what I was looking at, I wouldn't want to date the women around me and would probably go for that innocent anime girl too.

Also, I've heard that Japanese women are looking for manlier men these days (as opposed to the rest of the world), but Japanese men are getting more effeminate (is that how you spell it?). Don't know if that's true, but again, it would explain a lot of the lack of interest in relationships and sex ON BOTH SIDES. Something that this 'professional' is not doing.

Too much pride I reckon. Its a sad fate though, espesially when its whats considered the "more important sex" is dictating whether a whole country lives or dies cause too many of them still have their mindset in high school.

I can already see this slipping into a classic Escapist Relationship Thread.

Anyway, does this guy also happen to work for the censorship board that claimed sexually aggressive women turn young boys gay?

I love that joke too. Use it whenever I can, like when I didn't get into the Starhawk beta yet all my friends did.

Screw those guys.

We'll make our own Starhawk beta.

With Blackja-okay I'll stop now.

Maybe it's not the men, maybe it's the women. Maybe women don't like being objectified in every form of media Japan has. I'm just saying that it can't be easy having a relationship with a boy who owns a stack of porn full of rape, incest, bestiality and worse.

I mean, over here a girlfriend gets understandably annoyed if she finds a nudie mag in her boyfriend's bedroom. Imagine the levels of awkward a girl must go through when she learns a guy she's dating goes home and has sex with a Sailor Moon pillow?

Well gentlemen, I don't know about you but I volunteer to go to Japan and make sweet sweet love to all the lonely japanese women to raise the population of Japan

In fact, forget the starhawk beta. Gotta love Futurama.

Does this mean Japan hates homosexuals as well?

correct spelling: Guido

but Im sort of with you on that, at least I was back in the ancient days of 2007.

The only reason I dont want/cant find a girlfriend is that Im going to be gone until September, and people in BCT/AIT cant exactly see friends and family during that time.

Tiamat666:
I have the solution to all of Japans problems. The only thing they need to do is ship me to Tokio and I promise I will inseminate as many cute and sexy young japanese women as humanly possible.

No need to thank me.

Just make sure to have a shirt that says "Tokio" because that'll help ;)

Seems like an excuse to me. They're trying to find a quick and easy explanation, just the usual scapegoating instead of really trying to find where the problem lies.

So this has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever read. Can't get a girlfriend because you have a disorder. Of course all the single people in the world must be shut ins and hate human contact. Like to think that being single far outweighs being in a relationship for several reasons. I get to to do whatever I want and not be dragged to shit that I hate. Pretty much only have to spend money on my friends when it's their birthday and buy presents for my family at Christmas. Every person I have ever met starts to get annoyed about halfway through the relationship. Don't have to pretend that I like her friends which seems to be the bane of most men when I talk to them. Every girl I have met brings god awful amounts of baggage to every relationship like they are checking into a hotel.

Anime, manga, and gaming are just forms of escapism and when they have become a crutch then that usually means there is something awfully wrong with reality. From what I could remember a typical salary man would work 60+ hours a week usually with no overtime pay in strict corporate hierarchy with little of no chance of moving up the ladder and with absolute obedience to their bosses with a constant and ever present need show loyalty to the very same company working them to death. All this to support a wife and their kids. That would be a nightmarish lifestyle to follow through for later generations.

Must play games...must escape reality... Ahhhhh...

do I get a free pass for being female?

...Or maybe people just don't want to bring their children into a world that will see their prime years spent financially (and otherwise) responsible for the needs of an enormous population of the elderly?

...God knows, I have enough qualms with my daughter having to deal with the fallout from the Baby Boomers and the so-called "Greatest Generation".

And now I'm going to edge toward the exit, having flippantly heaped scorn on the elders we keep being told we should respect.

Because everyone knows that women crave the quiet shut in guys fixated on anime, manga, and video games.

Though, really, Eh. Let them hit their midlife crises, where they have to put into perspective their own mortality, and the goals they want to accomplish. That, or you know, this being Japan we're talking about, invent better robots. And if your country gains an "android" demographic, I think you kind of stop worrying about your population rate. At least, until the technophobes come out with a "make love not robots" campaign, or something.

It reminds me of the unintended consequences that advertising has. For instance, the Don't Drink and Drive campaign--it's unintentionally cutting into the sales of alcohol. The same way the proliferation of "use protection" messages has cut pregnancy rates among teens, but is simultaneously affecting the overall birthrate, because now unintended pregnancies are also cut down--especially with the variety of birth control methods available, and varying beneficial physiological effects they have.

You get what you ask for, sometimes. And then you get something more, alongside that.

Part of me really wants to agree with this piece, but I can't help but feel there's another reason for Japan's low birth rates. INTERNET RESEARCH HO!

And I just realized I have the perfect video for this situation:

(Couldn't find the actual clip)

I feel the need to link 99 Problems. So I will!

What? It was cool for EA to do it!

oneeyemug:

If the presence of Yaoi is any indicator, then no.

Actually, I think a population slide may not be too bad for Japan. The population density over there looks frankly ridiculous ( though this is coming from an Australian, so take that for what it is...)

Fappy:
So what this piece is saying is... every single man should book a flight to Japan to bag some fine young thing (considering none of them apparently have boyfriends).

Last time i checked, The japanese are not particularly fond of gaijin
