A Chinese writer writing that “the Japanese woman we know is a thing of the past” has unexpectedly been hailed by 2ch as possessing an accurate grasp of the state of the nation’s womanhood.
His thoughts can be read below:
A perfect life is said to be “an English house, an American salary, a Chinese cook and a Japanese wife.” Probably the whole world thinks of Japanese women as meek and obedient.
What we see in movies shows them making breakfast for their husbands, getting his clothes ready, taking care of the kids, doing housework, and greeting the husband on his return with supper and a bath.
I asked a Japanese friend about this. He laughed and said “That’s the past.”
I heard a relevant story about this; a romance between a Chinese man living in Japan and a Japanese doctor ended in marriage.
After they married, the doctor never once used her money on household expenses, everything was paid for out of the man’s earnings. Later, when the economy weakened, the man lost his job and his wife told him “As you can’t fulfil your responsibility as a man, we can’t go on living together.” She divorced him.
I was surprised when I heard this. It seems Japanese women think a man with no job is utterly worthless. They seem cruel and heartless.
He goes on to talk about the bizarre behaviour of Japan’s “gal” subculture, saying a visitor to their haunts might think they had stepped into another world.
Fortunately for what remains of his image of Japanese womanhood, he seems not to have heard about the vast numbers of Japanese girls engaged in casual prostitution, else he might truly despair…
Coming from a Chinese person, it might be thought that the immediate response of 2ch would be to tell him to go back to eating cats and Tibetans, but this seems not to be the case, as the responses overwhelmingly agree with him:
“He’s really hit the nail on the head.”
“Well, they are still preferable to Chinese women…”
“Exactly. There’s no way to dispute this.”
“This is probably written by a Japanese.”
“I can’t dispute any of this.”
“What about Chinese women? At least the Japanese ones won’t marry you then kill you.”
“He finally discovered reality.”
“With all the sex in shoujo manga and the sex tips in teen magazines, and with ‘keitai novels’ being nothing but sex, it’s obvious women will turn into bitches when surrounded by it all. Instead of banning loli they might want to try banning those.”
“I don’t know about the past, but he certainly knows about the present.”
“We don’t want to be told this by the Chinese!”
“The truth is worse. 90% of Japanese women are prostitutes…”
“This is correct. The ‘Yamato Nadeshiko’ has fallen…”
“This thread is going to be long…”
