the article has a lot of truth to it. people can joke about this or be rude, but here are the facts. Times are changing... the world is evolving... and the days of hiding your self and your emotions will soon be a thing of the past. Today's world requires a certain level of openness... a certain level of transparency, communication and truth. As the world continues to meet each other, and merge... more and more we are learning about other cultures. The fact of the matter is that it is not just the Japanese women that are seeking liberation when it comes to expressing themselves (or being expressed to...), but it is also the foreign men who appreciate their not-forgotten femininity and respect for their boyfriend or husband's role as the man in the relationship. In the US, for so many years women have fought for their rights, fought for equality, fought for the right to be just. like. men... and to a certain degree it has backfired. Japanese women love the attention that, in this day and age is rather normal in other parts of the world. Foreign men love the feminine and respectful qualities of a Japanese woman, something that women from the US and other parts of the world have perhaps forgotten. So this "trend" if you will is no coincidence. It's the Japanese women, and other foreign countries... finding that much needed balance that each country on its own is perhaps having trouble finding at the moment... The Japanese women are rightly seeking something they deserve in this evolving world... I think it is certainly true that the Japanese men are perhaps not seeing the signs, or are pridefully hanging on too tightly to tradition... and in some cases... they may be missing the boat. We can say the same perhaps to the foreign women who are clinging too tightly to this concept of equality and women's rights... be careful what you wish for... because you may win the battle... and lose the war.
