    I see your point. But if you went to the OP's house and he gave you a bib so you wouldn't splash your food on your clothes, and showed you some children's TV programmes because he assumed you...
  2. Poll: Hi! Thanks... it seems quite a lot's been said...

    Hi! Thanks... it seems quite a lot's been said while I was away (motorcycling in Izu... no exclusionary problems to report...)



    The exclusionism bug can do a lot of creeping before you notice...
  3. Poll: His choice is rational in that he's reduced the...

    His choice is rational in that he's reduced the risk of a similar misunderstanding, but the downside is he's excluding perfectly acceptable customers and is contributing to the creeping exclusionism...
  4. Poll: It's amazing that you've never seen it with your...

    It's amazing that you've never seen it with your own eyes.
    I'm no party animal, but by the time I'd been in Japan only one year I'd already been refused entry to 4 ('normal') bars specifically for...
  5. Poll: The original draft. Exactly. The version in use...

    The original draft. Exactly. The version in use is the Japanese version.



    And yet by judicial precedence, and by the experiences of thousands of foreigners in Japan, it quite clearly does not...
  6. Poll: There's nothing like that in Japanese law. It's...

    There's nothing like that in Japanese law. It's perfectly legal to discrimate against someone based on any of the things you mentioned.

    This really is the crux of the matter.

    There's a small...
  7. Poll: Of course not. But countries who sign the Geneva...

    Of course not. But countries who sign the Geneva Convention and then break its conditions should be vociferously criticised. Ditto Japan and its non-adherence to the racial discrimination treaty it...
  8. Poll: I agree, that kind of language is unacceptable...

    I agree, that kind of language is unacceptable (the first line at any rate.) Gaijinpot or Japantoday seems to be the place for that! However, the issue of his language style didn't seem to be...
  9. Poll: I'm sticking my neck out here, but that whole...

    I'm sticking my neck out here, but that whole exchange with genmai actually made me quite depressed (I must be getting emotionally attached to JREF!!) I think he describes his experiences very well,...
  10. Poll: The moral and philosophical arguments about the...

    The moral and philosophical arguments about the views expressed in your post could go on forever. However, Japan has signed and ratified a UN TREATY against racism.

    PERTINENT BITS OF THE...

    So a thread that has provoked lively and interesting discussion for 4 years is absurd? Are all the people who've contributed to this thread also absurd?



    I think you're exhibiting racist...

    You seem to be another person who's bought into the myth of 'hi-tech' Japan. OK, so that little Honda robot is impressive (and of course, cute... it's Japanese after all...)
    And the toilet seats...
  13. I know... I wasn't criticising. I was just...

    I know... I wasn't criticising. I was just wondering if the amusing stereotype of British morality was still prevalent.
  14. er.... would you care to elaborate? :-) Does...

    er.... would you care to elaborate? :-)

    Does your view of British sexual morality lean towards Victorian upper-class prudishness or Austin Powers 60s swinging?
  15. Poll: Good advice... actually I'm already friendly with...

    Good advice... actually I'm already friendly with my immediate neighbours (adjacent apartments) and have even dined with them in their apartments. And I have an earthquake kit both at home and in the...
  16. Poll: After the big one stikes, if I'm still in one...

    After the big one stikes, if I'm still in one piece I'm going to head straight for the British embassy, or to the homes of some close Japanese friends. This is the best way to ensure that I remain in...

    You're right about train fares, but what sort of food are you referring to? Stuff in supermarkets is much, much cheaper in London than Tokyo. You can be a sack of 20 apples for the price of 1 apple...
