60% of Japanese Women “Turning Into Men”

rebecca_carnevale_della_luce_della_luna

60% of Japanese women questioned in a recent survey report “turning into men,” with 70% reporting “there are men more feminine than I am around me” and 94% “I’d like to become more womanly.”

The survey, covering unmarried Japanese women aged 25-35, also found some other vaguely masculine traits, with 32% at times wanting “a wife or secretary” themselves, and 42% liking to drink alone.

Even more tellingly, 69% said they were conscious of being insufficiently womanly.

Just how this can be reconciled with a male population apparently displaying the opposite tendency is not clear…

    Indeed. As long as they don't ask me to bend over, futanari is fine, too.

    One of my friend's male buddy wears boobs around the school.

    ...and then I look down my own shirt and grieve that they're not half as big as his fake ones.

    it's not unexpected as gender roles are seen as more and more outdated. though there's still the societal pressure to "masculine" or "feminine," people are natural just saying "to hell with it" and acting as they would like. it's a good thing really.

    Well, you will always be abnormal if you are not acting like most other people do...

    Being normal is behaving like what everyone else do. Majority of women are feminine, if you are a woman and you are not feminine, you are probably abnormal.

    I think that's how the world is right now. And things like equality between men and women, probably won't exist, at least not soon since you can see how the world is. People always have the mind set of protecting the women. Well, how about the men. Not saying that men need protection or women need it but those way of thinking will make everyone, well, most people, think that women are weaker and shit like that. (I'm kinda of topic XD)

    I respectfully Dissagree...
    First of all "Normality" is an unattainable Ideal, much like Perfection.
    Second of all, seeing how the World just seems to go to Hell with each passing Day, it's becoming increasingly difficult to gauge just what exactly is considered "Normal" anymore :(

    Indeed in this day and age the only thing you can count on is the wisdom of your Heart.

    'Normal' is pretty easy to become. Especially in a conformist culture like Japan.
    I think the 'normal' you're looking for is being sound.

    Awesome. Now if only they'd become manly enough to be willing to become carnivorous and date those herbivorous men. And work for their own money instead of giving into the old fashioned notion they should look for a wealthier partner.
    I want to see a decrease in those statistics saying women want wealthier men. Remember, you're not a real man of a woman until you're a breadwinner. And a deadbeat mom is just by far unacceptable.
    Honestly, the ideal for me would again, for them to become MORE manly. To the point there are no gender roles in money. And women are no more likely to want wealth in a partner than men. You may find that to be disgusting or impossible, but I'd certainly find it to be beautiful. I'd be lying if I said I didn't.

    I like that ideal, I think it's beautiful too. Screw feminism and masculism; true equality is awesome.

    It'd also be beautiful if people stopped stereotyping women based on what they read on Sankaku Complex though. I'm not targeting you or anything, but yeah, there are plenty of women who aren't like that; I'd go far enough to even say that MOST women I know don't think like that at all. I'd definitely feel like I wasn't contributing to the family if I didn't work or made less money to my hypothetical husband. (Yeah yeah, "go back to the kitchen and make me a sandwich.")

    I think it's a two way street. Both men and women have a ways to go before we can create a world like that.

    No thanks.

    When woman start pulling their own in the family, they start making more demands.

    I'd prefer the fire to be warm after a hard days work. The bitch'll expect you to do it yourself just 'cause she's earning some dough (that she keeps to herself).

    Women are greedy. End-of.

    Men are greedy too.

    Even Santa Coca-cola Claus is greedy. Why the hell does he eat all the cookies and milk left out for him?

    Fat cunt.

    Some people become afraid if they don't have roles defined for them.

    Some people are simply set in their ways, and don't want to deal with change ("When I was a young lad, men 'brought home the bacon', and women tended the home-fires.")

    Some people [not _just_ men] are simply exploitative ("I'm rich and powerful; I want to stay that way; the present system gives me free and/or cheap labor [female]; why the hell would I want things to be different than that?" / "I'm a lazy slob and don't want to get up from my football game - woman, git in the kitchen and make me a sammich!")

    and i think the masculinity trend is a good thing. if they'd only stop bothering about it. accept it, embrace it, don't try to be more girly. it sucks to be girly. at least in the stereotypical sense.

    Be a girl! Take a sword, chop up the flimsy creatures around you except one that you will choose to be your mating partner of the day.

    Point the sword at it, make it undress, laugh about the poor creature's choice of underpants and then kick the thing hanging inside there.

    Once the creature has embraced the ground, proceed to remove the last bits of its clothing with your frontal pincher and use your trained, muscular vag$%^a to suck up the testic#$s. Slowly return to standing position, do not release the grasp yet.

    Then, still holding it thusly, make an air roll finished by a german supplex. A white secretion should appear; suck it up from the floor and then lie with your legs upwards spinning for half an hour. Congratulations; you are now pregnant.

    @ the First Comenter above:
    I'm afraid you're living a Pipe-Dream my Friend.
    I can assure you People were just as Depraved 200 years ago as they are now, perhaps even more-so.
    Also I'm quite certain there was no shortage of Tom-Boys and "delicate-gentelmen" even back then.
    I belive it's safe to say these things have been around since the Dawn of Civilisation.
    (The Amazons or the Valkire ring a Bell?)

    The only difference between Then and Now is that, with the advent of the Informational-Age, all these things bacame common-knoledge, whereas before they had been considered Tabu.

    Still, this should be viewed as a Good thing, as being aware of the full extent of Corruption and Wickedness human-kind is capable of, can only benefit Humanity as a whole.

    Whaa happened to KNOW YOUR ROLE?

    the man used to have his place and woman theirs and you know what, it worked most of the time.

    In modern society with men and women being more and more self sufficient across the board there's simply no need for a life partner.

    Let alone one with certain qualities. It's no wonder people are messed up.

    Women want kids and a nice life but at the sametime want respect and a career. Men want women to do traditional wifey stuff yet want their women to be more lara croft/angelina jolie extroverted.

    And if one of them has the ability and he means to do pretty much everything themselves, what's left?

    Nothing but "niche" picks for life partners.

    so, your 'role' is predetermined?

    and you don't get a choice in what you want to do in a relationship.

    this whole "traditional family" or "gender role" bullshit is getting old, fast.

    if someone wants to be a stay-at-home dad, let 'em. If somebody wants to be fucking "Laura Craft", let 'em be.

    what business is it of yours to tell them their role?

    You are missing the point.

    The point is a family works on roles. Together it makes a machine that successfully runs.

    Either you have people that don't like their role, want a different role, don't have a role, incapable or unwilling to assume their role, or they have too many roles to be efficient.

    In the old days I'm saying it more or less worked. And you had work at It to make it work. And without all this freedom of choice and independence there wasn't much to do except work to make it work. Now we have so much that's it's not working.

    I'm not saying you have to be "traditional" I'm saying there needs to be a clear clean set of roles filled by each person.

    By your example of stay at home dad: unless you strike it rich with your partner your quality of life more or less will be mediocre at best to borderline poor. Paycheck to paycheck. Most families have average jobs and require two people to sustain a better than average quality of life. If you want to be stay at home, that might fill the house role but it doesn't fill the financial role. Or you may be stay at home but you long to be doing something else.

    The Lara croft comment was made to signal men desire too much out of women. You want them to make a good home, yet you want them to bring money to the table. You want traditionalism yet you want them to be asskickers. You want gracefulness in the street yet freaks in the bed. It's contradiction that can't be efficiently realized. Don't make my comments out to be what they aren't.

    At the same time we want men to be handy around the house yet we want thhm to be out in successfull well respected jobs. We want them to pay attention to thier wives and children yet we always have stipulations . We want them to be at home more often yet we want them out working hard. Wewant them to provide for the family yet we want to provide for ourselves.
    I said people need to have roles, and even at that be committed and satisfied to their role. I didn't tell them WHAT their roles should be. Please don't misconstrue my words.

    Again if roles can be filled independently by one person, that screws with the formula for successful relationships which is a large part of why people are messed up/unhappy.

    Comment by Anonymous

    If you mean to be giving specific positions to have steady control for things to be smooth, then that's okay. But there doesn't have to be roles based on gender. People are always gonna want more than they can have and end up having to adjust and "deal with it". Life sucks that way, but I guess it has to. Kinda like how we can't all be successful in a major college degree with a high paying job in medical, technological, and law degrees. We need farmers and janitors just as much.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Of course the roles HAVE to be based on the gender because the woman is the only part that can bear/raise healthy children and the man is the only part that can successfully run the society(based on starting businesses,bequeath it to the eldest son,etc... matrialistic societies were never able to establish a successful,long lasting social structure to begin with)+ invented most technology/fought all major wars/etc...

    If the roles wouldn't have to based on gender,why didn't the amazones, the women from Meroe or those from ancient China develope into anything but only the communities formed by men prevailed until today?

    All those Gender/Sodomy crap in todays societies only show that they are on the edge of collapsing sooner or later because women/men won't accept their specific roles anymore although it prevailed through over 7 million years of human evolution.

    We are not Seahorses where the females only lay the eggs and the males have to incubate them but human beings where the males organize weaponry/food/tools and the females raise children/produce clothing/clean/cook, I don't see the general problem (I just think that's the side effect of giving in to womens demands too much, like the proverb tells: give the devil your little finger and he'll snatch your whole arm)
