Posted in: Ukraine-born Miss Japan relinquishes crown after reported affair See in context

I honestly don't understand how far sentiment has shifted in the Anglosphere on cheating.

I don't really mind myself, and she probably didn't initially know he had a wife, but she did continue the affair after finding out, and he was on a judging panel. Advertisers sponsoring this can no longer use her for anything promotional and the scandal does cause a headache for everyone.

The main job of TV personalities and beautiqueens is literally to be advertiser friendly.

Plenty of famous men in Japan have to announce a career hiatus when cheating scandals break too. It happens every year, if you actually follow news in Japan. But everyone will fit this story into their own political narrative so they can get angry.

Posted in: Many Japanese outside major urban areas do not engage with foreigners: survey See in context

Why would people in rural Japan answer that they want a higher percentage of foreign people in their community? Go to any country and ask the same question. They mostly don't actively care about it and will express mild concerns depending on how you phrase the question.

Progressives in San Francisco are constantly complaining about "transplants" ruining the city and they never get called xenophobic, but anytime Japanese people don't overwhelmingly say they want more foreigners they get called xenophobic.
