    Oh and btw, there is little doubt many of your comments in this thread Lursa are sexist. The little attack on men you had in your unanswerable question was sexist and this crap about how anyone that complains wants to "return to traditional gender roles" or how they are unattractive is sexist bull****.

    Furthermore, absolutely none of this changes the reality that men who make "decent money" are generally held to be far more desirable than those who are more average. Women are naturally wired to seek out men who could serve as "providers," and they simply happen to best fit the bill.

    Actually, the problem in Japan is not that the women are too picky; It's that they are adhering to closely to the traditional gender norms where the wife stays home and it's the man's job to provide. The problem is, Japan's economy is not supplying enough well-paying jobs for men so there are not enough Japanese men who can fulfill their traditional role

    Isn't the problem actually that most of them are deliberately going out of their way to avoid traditional gender norms which they find to be "troublesome" by remaining single and financially independent in the first place?

    Sure, they'll pay lip service to the idea of marriage and family (as most women with that kind of lifestyle will), but they're generally not going to rush out to marry a man unless he is the very "cream of the crop." As such men tend to be rare, this naturally leads many of them to simply remain indefinitely single.

    Most men, in turn, have simply stopped trying to court them.

    Our own society's problems might not be quite that extreme, but many of the same themes (i.e. for women in particular, the idea of marriage and family as unnecessary burdens, rather than desirable goals) are present.

    Every discussion between men and women is 'sexist' these days, at least by the more 'sensitive' sort. Lursa also appears to handle her opinions very well.

    If the discussion offends you, you know what to do.

    I married a girl from Thailand and we just celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. The problem here is after so many years back in the states, they become Americanized. Must be something in the water here.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think that may have been a guess. Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex? | World news | The Observer
