Japanese Elementary Schoolers More Precocious Than Ever


Japanese have lately been marvelling at the precocious dress of elementary schoolers of late, with Hinata and Riria (both 12 or 13) taken to be cases in point.

2ch for its part has been quick to denounce this “bitchification” of the nation’s young girls, perhaps smarting to see them not dressed as little sailors instead…


Although some of the girls pictured are obviously models, enough of them look to be normal schoolgirls for some conclusions about contemporary schoolgirl fashion to be drawn.

Those tempted to decry this as “bitchification” might do well to note that the notion that 13-year-olds should look and behave like innocent little dolls is a relatively recent one – in Edo period Japan marriage generally started at 14, and even in the west hyper-puritanical attitudes to adolescents are far from ancient, so from a historical perspective such antics are not particularly shocking.

    Nah..it's the natural reply to girls craving sex. Even if they don't understand what the hell they are doing. But probably they do understand anyway.....

    Don't be stupid this isnt the reply to girls craving sex, this is what people are feeding their children. They are only imitating their idols, the people who dress this way. This world has gone to hell. Although this situation isn't nearly anywhere close to the magnitude of China's.

    Actually, you're both right.

    It's a little of everything, nature AND nurture.

    Everyone want to look good, it's in their genes; attracting mates (or at least practicing to do so, since their young), and all that good stuff.

    The media gives us society's perspective on what "looks good" - And the younger highly-impressionable generation follows from there.

    Music can actually be measured, horrible music is actual math how it effects ones brain or rather how it "can" effect the effect is up to the person and the skills involved to play, sing, compose, etc, or ...etc hitting notes, finding semi tones, flats sharps that work well with the sounds so on and so forth.

    How one enjoys the this is also a factor but not the biggest, people can enjoy horrible music. It still remains horrible music.

    No wonder there is so much Sekuhara in Japan...
    How can they run around dressed like that,that's even worse than those clothes from Kodomo no Jikan.

    About the music:
    Bad music is music from those who don't know a tad shit about music and still try to sell the crap they compose(like everyone in the all-time-charts).
    The real masterpieces of music are only enjoyed by a minority of people (like most classical music pieces, and with classical I don't mean shit like the Beatles but classical orchestra/organ music or some decent dojin musicians).

    Good musicians make music not to live from it but because they enjoy making music and don't spawn disgraceful crap because their contracted record label forces them to produce X songs/albums per year.

    Someone who profilates himself through youtube is just a poor creature with no brains longing for advertence...

    Let me make this point iron strong.... keysha is one of the very worst things to ever happen to U.S. Music since...... hmm... well i guess Britney Spears, AND rap music. pleas let me introduce the point that rap music is also VERY VERY bad. It really aint even 'music' its just the blacks talking about their 'bitches' their drugs, their gangs, and crimes of violence while unfitting beats are played. and britney spears' music is decent, well, some of it, but americans kinda see her in the light that otaku see aya hirano atm, but it's for a different reason, one of which you will probably never see in japan.

    There is a lot of good rap out there that is poetic, well-written, and has positive messages. The fact that you seem to think it's a racial thing, or that you think it's all bad just shows a lack of education on your part. It's not anyone else's fault if you only expose yourself to negative music or don't expand your horizons beyond what is clearly stereotypical.

    Then you haven't heard mc chris or Eminem. Both white guys who aren't all about money and women. How about Mega Ran. Optimus Rhyme. Most of rap is shit, but there are some really good gems in there who speak some true stuff.
    As for Spears and Kesha, they can go to the same place as Brokencyde. In some fiery pit of Hell.

    Now there's something wrong with violence? There's violence in nearly all media. Ok, so you don't like Eminem. There's plenty of others that disprove your statement. Just saying. It's pretty ignorant to make such a broad statement about a genre that you seem to hardly know. Or care for that matter.

    Today's mainstream rap is garbage. I've been a fan of rap and hip-hop since the early 90s, and it sickens me to hear most of today's hits. Basically, today's rap is considered ring-tone rap, which consists of a heavy beat combined with a high pitched synth loop that you can dance to in a club while drunk. The lyrics are generic and soulless and don't mean anything in particular. (Kind of like JPOP when translated into English.)

    On the other hand, underground artists like CunninLynguists and older mainstream groups like Outkast provide us with music that remains true to rap's musical roots. These artists actually have musical talent.

    Next thing you know your going to tell us how you never heard of Outkast, The Strange Fruit Project, Thabani Band, Blackalicious or Def Jef.

    Oh thats right you probably would...cause you don't know squat about rap. So do us a favor and stop posting pseudo commentary about what rap is and is not.

    Try going back to Old School Rap for something a bit more decent to listen to. Like De La Soul, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Kool Moe Dee, etc.

Just dont say its bad because it doesnt appeal to or connects with you. BTW Country is almost the same shit.

    More like what they call in the US rave / underground club scene "prostitots": any girl under the legal age of 18 that dresses like a prostitute / slut.

    And everyone wonders why there are so many underage girls having babies nowadays?; it's because the PARENTS allow their 13 year old daughters leave the house dressed like that, and buy those clothes for them!

    If it was MY daughter, I'd ground her for a year.

    Then again, I would NEVER buy these types of clothes for her, especially if she was a 'model' as someone pointed out.

    If you didn't have kids and family few hundred years ago around 16-17, you were a loser.

    But then again - when people living beyond 30 were considered very lucky - the world had more common sense in context of sex, marriages and so on.

    Funny thing, our evolution obviously didn't keep up with medical science, unfortunately - all religious and moral nutter groups, and lawyers/politicians sucking their cocks certainly did...

    'the sooner you get pregnant (not "14 year old" sooner though) the healthier your baby will be since the eggs are still young too! '

    There can be complications and low fetal birthweight. Nutrition is very difficult for 14-year-old mothers. It's better to wait until they're 17 or 18, if they eat healthy, high-protein diets.

    Breed! It is your patriotic duty!

    Problem with that is that most of them would just get abortions. Since there's not as much moral stigma about it there, I'm sure the parent would have no trouble taking their daughter in to get one if she was too young.

    And there were no stupid bullshit laws stating you can't have sex with a 14 year old. It's the modern society backward thinking that came out with those bullshit.

    Pedophile? What's that? It doesn't exist in the ancients vocabulary.

    I don't care if 12 year olds are no longer 'innocent' but...

    This is like Jessi Slaughterification of kids. Kids at such a young age shouldn't be bothered too much by trends and fashion. Especially trends; I thought all kids are taught to do their own thing? Instead, they have another aspect of peer pressure added to them.

    At least, wait until high school. They can't even begin to work part time(otherwise it's child laboring), so they're effectively sucking their parents' money to follow these fashin trends. If their parents are lawyers and/or Jew, they don't need to worry, but what about the poorer men and women who wore a bad condom or had this misleading thought that a 'safe day' is completely safe?

    I remember that until we hit 10-12 we didn't give a damn about clothes, we just wore what our parents gave us. I think the most we'd go for is when we had very nice new shoes and stationary (from backpacks to pencils). Kids shouldn't be so concerned about clothes, I blame the parents.

    Most of us aren't fashionable enough to attract a mate and breed thus it's the fashionable ones who bred these fashionable peer pressuring kids.

    If manga is any guide then difference from your peers will get you ostracized in the Japanese school leading to suicides. It's kids' lives on the line so get to studying the problem. It might save them from enjo-kosaing for their new clothes.
