1) I know that all Japanese men do not fall under this category.
2) No, I don’t want to marry a man just because he’s Japanese. I love all men, and would marry any guy whom I love and who treats me right and loves me. But I do have a soft spot for Japanese men 🙂
I’m probably going to get all kinds of hate mail about how racist and closed-minded I am against Japanese men (which is bollocks, really), but I think this particular subject needs to be discussed and hashed out.
That subject being: why would a grown, straight man even think about wanting to wear a bra??? And I’m not talking about a manly, linen or cotton short wifebeater that only comes in black, gray and white (which is still a tad disturbing to me). But rather, a colorful, padded feminine brassiere?!? You think you’ve seen it all, right?
Now, it may seem that I’m picking on Japanese men, but I’m not. Actually, it hurts me the most to see them showing up so negatively in the world’s news. Why?? Honestly, I would love to marry a Japanese man (of course, not any Japanese man). The only Asian men I really, truly know are Japanese and have taught me so much about the culture and their home country. So is it the media that I should be angry at?? Or is it Japanese men that I should be angry at for allowing the media to have something bizarre to report on them?? I don’t know. I’m confused.
So that brings up the question: what is really going on? Has Japanese society oppressed their men so much to the point that the gender roles have been reversed? Just like the grass-eating men, bra-wearing men have decided to embrace their feminine side, without actually embracing all that is a feminine: their women. Something’s wrong! There’s no politically correct way to say this. It’s just not right. Men don’t have boobs (i.e. real ones that can feed a child). Plain and simple.
My mission (and I’ve chosen to accept it) is to ask a few of my close Japanese guy friends about this very thing. I will report on my findings. Stay tuned!
