I have never liked that term but always told those who chose to use that, that my kids are the best of both cultures. I told them to refer them as bi cultural. They are not half of anything. I also remember being pointed at and the word gaijin da being shouted at me.. I reversed it on them and shouted, Nippon Jin da! They never said that to me again because I had asked them after I said it, how does if feel when I shout that at you? They said it sounded rude. I said to them, well now you know what it feels like and I hope you will not do it again! They apologized to me and that was that.

Posted in: Dual citizenship is not permitted under Japanese law, making the country an international minority over the issue. What do you think are the benefits of allowing dual citizenship? See in context
Trying to tell a person to choose is like asking them to choose who they love more? Their mother or their father! They should have the right to be both and if necessary will stand to protect both countries they are a part of.
