  1. Yea unfortunately.... well fortunately,...

    Yea unfortunately.... well fortunately, actually.. in a society as non-violent as Japan's the ability to navigate the grey area of swearwords and (dis)respect is so important it's tantamount to...
  2. Poll: Pretty girls don't bother me one bit. If...

    Pretty girls don't bother me one bit.

    If people send email, read, study, sleep, etc., and do other things on the train that the busy Japanese lifestyle doesn't permit a wealth of time for, what's...

    Doesn't make a huge difference, if its as bad as some make it out to be I'd have the same relative amount of exposure and would have come away with the same attitude. If the longer you're there the...

    That's a really good point. I haven't spent as much time as others in Japan but I would consider the sum of my experiences quite typical and at least more informed (based solely on length of stay)...

    I got 31...

    I'm not fat though, I work out and train quite a bit. I don't think BMI is accurate for athletes.
  6. Poll: I agree, I've seen a few programs out there where...

    I agree, I've seen a few programs out there where the foreigners are basically just the 'foreign' quota for TV programming or what have you. They aren't really representative of their country, if the...
  7. Poll: Welp it's been stimulating Glenski but its...

    Welp it's been stimulating Glenski but its probably best to continue our discussion via PM, if at all. I think our opinions are quite clear to one another and to everyone else by this point, as is...
  8. Poll: When I think about some of the things that are...

    When I think about some of the things that are going on in the world I truly can't get as fired up about these issues as some. I just see this as pre-mature drum beating. There is already progress...
  9. Poll: I'm not suffering any stress. You seemed pretty...

    I'm not suffering any stress. You seemed pretty stressed out about these issues yourself though. Aside from that I'm voicing my opinion, as you are. We obviously don't see eye to eye. That alright...
  10. Poll: Aside from the fact that this is a discussion...

    Aside from the fact that this is a discussion board for all things Japanese, I fail to see why pointing out the short comings of Japanese race law and highlighting these isolated cases of...

    TOLERANT
    You scored 28!
    You are generally NOT race-minded, there may be a thing or two that you see as a race issue, but mostly, you are a very tolerant person!

    Definitely geared towards...
  12. Poll: I don't think anyone here realistically believes...

    I don't think anyone here realistically believes discriminatory attitudes aren't a problem in Japan, they're a problem in every country so to say Japan has none at all would be sheer blindness.

  13. Poll: I had this whole long thing written out.. I'm...

    I had this whole long thing written out.. I'm just going to say this instead.

    In Japan, if you keep walking into a doorway and hitting your head on it and this prevents you from entering,...
  14. Poll: You wouldn't see a store of that size in Japan...

    You wouldn't see a store of that size in Japan with a 'no foreigners' sign either. The closest comparison I can think of is Costco, which is open to anyone with a membership and I knew several...
  15. Poll: Glenski almost everything you've mentioned there...

    Glenski almost everything you've mentioned there happens in the West too. We may be less obvious about it but it definitley happens. Before you can enter an American college you need a SAT score of...
  16. Poll: JimmySeal: Yes I think there's definitely a...

    JimmySeal:

    Yes I think there's definitely a different approach to censorship and hate literature being taken in Japan vs. other industrialized nations. I'm not entirely convinced that the fact it...
  17. Poll: Ah I see. I got caught up in reading the article...

    Ah I see. I got caught up in reading the article itself and failed to scroll down to the other stuff.

    Well you won't find a disagreement from me on that book, it's definitely fear mongering hate...
  18. Poll: @Glenski: Re: the part where I lost you. We've...

    @Glenski:

    Re: the part where I lost you. We've gotta get our definitions sorted out here first. Japanese businessmen taking advantage of Chinese migrant workers isn't 'racism'. That was my point,...
  19. Poll: Business takes advantage of the less...

    Business takes advantage of the less industrialized and desperate peoples of the world every day. I do not think this is indicative of an intense hatred of the Chinese race, I think its business...
  20. Poll: It's kind of useless in my humble opinion to...

    It's kind of useless in my humble opinion to compare the US and Japan in terms of how they approach the topic of racism. Expanding on that heavily would probably upset some people and turn this into...
  21. Poll: All moral and personal objections aside, this is...

    All moral and personal objections aside, this is ultimately true. In a place like Canada or America where we proclaim to be open and accepting of all creeds and colours its necessary to try and...
  22. Poll: I had an easy go in Japan, the only time I was...

    I had an easy go in Japan, the only time I was refused access anywhere was to a nightclub and its because I didn't have proper ID. My alien card was in the process of being replaced.. all I had was...
  23. Poll: I did not have time to read through this thread...

    I did not have time to read through this thread and I apologize in advance. I just wanted to toss my 2yen in here quickly as it seems like a fairly cut and dry subject.

    I liked having my Alien...

    That's a tough one to call. The Japanese in Japan are polite enough such that even if you were 'acquaintances' with a Japanese person, you'd rarely know that you were 'nothing' to them. But thats a...

    You answered your own question. Plus most new Eikaiwa teachers don't speak Japanese to begin with so its almost always going to be a matter of either shouldn't or can't. Beyond that though, I'm...
