It's not some fantasy...there was blame laid for Romeny weakening his women's vote pool because he refused to sign a state law the demanded equal pay for women.

He included physical pursuits as an example of such activities, which you seem to have taken as evidence that he believes women cannot do the same.
That was never so much as implied by his post, nor does a focus on physical activity appear to have been his point in writing it in the first place.

You don't seem to be able to provide one yourself, you just know that you're a victim somehow. That's pretty much the point of the thread, isn't it?
In Japan, they live with their parents forever, not just into their 20's. It's qualitatively different.Are you really going to deny that persons living at home well into their twenties has become more common over the course of the last decade in the United States?
A record 21.6 million millennials live with Mom and Dad
Get real, Sangha.
Again, the same issues exist here as exist in Japan. The only difference is the matter of degree.
And here's another instance of you seeing things that aren't there. There is no mention of it being associated with a social stigma and certainly not the way it is in the USNo, it is associated with being a loser in Japan after a certain age as well. These men would not have picked up the derogatory "grass eating" moniker they currently carry otherwise.
So now you're contradicting your own claims that you've made that kids today are having too much sex. Suddenly, you believe they're having very little sex.Over 50% of unmarried men and women under the age of thirty report not having had sex within the last year.

The decline of dating also well documented.
Now you're using a feminist argument that even you don't believe. That is pretty dishonest.Who, according to many feminists in this country, are being discriminated against, make less money than their males peers, and are often passed over for promotions due to their children.
They make it work.
As you said, actions matter. If you wanted to be married, you would be married - just like you described the Japanese.Prove that their situation has anything whatsoever to do with mine.
If you wanted to be married, you could be.I'm 25. I have the luxury.
Many of the people in Japan we are discussing are in their mid to late thirties.
If they wanted to be married, they could be.
No, you're just imagining that.It would appear that many women prefer their temp jobs to the prospect of marriage.
Your link goes to an article about orange juice. Not sure what that has to do with this discussion
I posted proof that it has been going down for the last 30 years.It has been trending no where but up for the last several years.
The first I have already agreed are similar, but even you have admitted that they are primarily due to economic factors not cultural ones so it's not because the Japanese are abandoning traditional values.Low birth rates, low marriage rates, sexual discrimination in the work force, and stagnant economies hampering youth economic opportunities are universal in the industrialized world today.
The fact that they engage in sexual discrimination is another indication that they are clinging to traditional values. And the economic stagnation is only a few years in most of the western nations. In Japan, it's been going on for 30 years. Maybe in 25 years, you'll have a point.
I guess you know more about what they can afford than they doAgain, that is their perception. It is not necessarily reality.
Why don't you stop evading the question and post some sources detailing costs of living in Japan and what it costs to raise a family?
Actually what has been established is that american men are whiners.All that has been established so far is that Japanese men and women alike are whiners, who would rather not even try to raise a family than put in the effort to make the situation work.
I already have, but feel free to post some evidence that contradicts the facts I've posted. So far, you've posted nothing to show how single men in Japan are making enough to support a familyPost up the data then.
How does average income compare with the bare minimum (i.e. not the 'ideal') required to raise a family?
Yes, charts showing the employment rates for single men and women in Japan are no more credible than an internet poll of 300 self-selected people.It's exactly as credible as anything you have provided so far.
Might be? It's the worst!!Japan might be a bit less woman friendly than some other parts of the world, but that doesn't mean that feminism has not had an impact.
You are once again demonstrating how you ignore any and all evidence which contradicts your inane beliefs.
IOW, you have abandoned traditional values in preference for material comfort.If I were to marry right now, I would be in abject poverty; able to afford neither food, shelter, nor clothing.
Sounds like your situationAgain, that is not a matter of necessity. It is a matter of personal preference.
Again, sounds like your situation.And they would appear to be making the choice to remain celibate and single in spite of other options being available.
You do realize your completely wrong and it pointed to how crowded Japan is and how they lack as much privacy as we have. It says it right there in the part she bolded, and you *still* don't see it!You do realize that the only thing that excerpt pointed to was a greater abundance of MMOs and Smart Phone apps, right?
I'd hardly consider that to be a world altering difference.
And you think that is only talking about technology!!it's an overcrowded nation with limited physical space.
You are once again competely ignoring any evidence that contradicts your inane beliefs.
