It’s an actual problem, the young men in Japan today are called “Herbivore men” because they aren’t being aggressive in asking women out, they’re just keeping to themselves and not dating. They seem to have no interest in dating and thus aren’t populating Japan. A study found that 61% of men in their 20s and 70% of men in their 30s considered themselves to be herbivore men... not great for Japan’s future.
@Blasphemy is Fun, thats what happens when you make the expectation for every man to have a 6 figure salary along with a shït ton of other crazy expectations and not settle for less. Hell i remember seeing they’re offering deals for foreigners to come and just fück their women for kids and leave. Its just as bad for women there, their expectations of what kinda people they should be and jobs they should have are in the extremes. This isn’t the first or last result of that
@Blasphemy is Fun, cool, as an assertive American looks like I'm moving to Japan to have my pick at the women. Goodbye basic girls and hello real life anime girls
@Dexios S Divine, Seriously. Their culture puts work above practically everything else to the point where having even a modicum of a social life looks lazy. So now the men who aren’t married are saying fvck it and will just marry a digital creation. Meanwhile married couples are being torn apart because work demands they barely ever get to see each other.
@Dexios S Divine, wait what, is that a real thing?? As a man with a thing for Japanese girls... I believe in my ability to populate japan!
@Dexios S Divine, yeah it also doesn’t help that overworking is literally killing them
@Cpzombie, im pretty sure theres prereqs to get that deal, like having a good college degree or high paying job or similar top tier shït. They’re not looking for cousin hick from up the creek to make their kids lol
@Blasphemy is Fun, So what you're saying is that is practically open season for women in Japan?
@Cpzombie, Yup. Here it is
@mas2de, you got my hopes up, and then crushed them 😭
This is what happens when you cultivate a society that views young men as disposable resources. People will eventually stop buying into systems that continuously fail them. This is coming to the west as well, just slower.
@I Are Lebo, i believe it has to do with the expectation on both sides. So both sides expect a+ candidates when in reality there are candidates from a to f. Also if you dont think you are the a+ you likely wont seek a partner as you know you will be rejected (low self esteem issue). I once hired a Japanese employee and it was very difficult to get through to her. When she would do something wrong the failure she would feel was just too much, even though it was just a normal part of the learning process.
Considering too some women would rather spend ¥100,000 on a fake bf at a host club rather than have a real one this isn't surprising at all
@Sexy Homunculus, what are host clubs?
@PacificaPelican, places where women pay a shjt load of money to have a "boyfriend" for a couple hours who'll smooth talk them and listen to them gripe about their problems and do other stuff to entertain them. Some of the more popular host clubs can cost around $1000 which is about a hundred thousand yen
@Sexy Homunculus, that’s crazy. It is almost like strip clubs for women without the stripping.
@Sexy Homunculus, wow that sounds like a pretty good gig
@Sexy Homunculus, So they're the opposite of America?
I wonder if this applies to those of Japanese descent as well. If so, then whenever my dad asks why I haven't started bringing the bloodline back around to pure Japanese, this is what I'll show him.
China has a problem with too many men and not enough women. If only the two countries could set aside their intensely racist attitudes, they could resolve each other's problems.
@Suicide Squad Sucks, I think it's less racist and more "Fvck you Japan (specific country, not skin color or race) for all the fvcked up stuff you do to us every chance you get." And "Fvck you Chinese for being lesser beings" ok wait, now I see the racism.
Why i love this community. Many wise views. I wish many humans could take things into account
Well looks like it's up to me to help repopulate Japan. Wake up little buddy you have work to do.
I would be happy to help with the population
It’s because of their culture of working as well as their terrible xenophobia that’s causing the decline
@Siska the Khajiit, neither of those have anything to do with declining birth rates. Japan has been a workaholic culture of bigots for centuries. The decline is recent.
@Siska the Khajiit, what does xenophobia have to do with asking girls out lol
@PacificaPelican, well it says declining population, so I thought that a lack of immigration could be a cause
I fail to see why their population decreasing is a bad thing when they have such a high population density.
“It’s a culture in decline, Gomie.”
