Posted in: Why did those foreigners who decided to leave Japan in the aftermath of the March 11 disaster come in for so much derision from some people who labeled them with words like 'flyjin?' See in context

To the guy above with the Fukushima friends: Nobody is criticizing people who evacuated from Fukushima. That's where the evacuation zone is. Of COURSE people have to get out of there!

The people who fled Tokyo for Kansai or fled Kansai for North America or whatever are what people are talking about. Oh dear lord -- MAGIC RADIATION is coming for us in Tokyo! Gotta split! No time to pack or pay bills or give notice at my job, GET ME OUT OF HERE! (but give me my job back later)

Honne, I'm sorry to hear you were offended by people calling you "flyjin". May I remind you that just as it is your right to panic and run away at the first hint of imagined personal danger, it is also the right of others to mock you for it. Y'know, there's no laws against giving your opinion of people.

My stance has always been that each individuals circumstances are unique and if a foreigner felt it was appropriate to label someone who packed up and left without notice a flyjin, then I don't see why some other foreigners felt it was any of their personal business and taking it to a level of writing long, spergy comments on the Internet about it. When you look at these folks, they come across as class A morons.

And for those of us who are debt-free, have decent savings and a secure job, a nice stretch of low low prices!

katsu78: Your comment raises another question in my mind. Does Terrie Lloyd have a financial interest in Gaba? If not, no problem. If he does, then this was a very slick attempt at bolstering Gaba's incessant "group lessons are shit compared to our MAN-TO-MAN lessons" advertising.

BBLeo: read the article again. You've got it all wrong. Hint: "stressed out from work" does not mean "stressed from being out of work"

Azrael: Yeah, that's the the first thing I thought about, too, when I read that her three other daughters had died like that.

I bet most of the complainers about being rejected were trying to apply for a CC in English. Fat chance.

Speak Japanese and your chances go up drastically.
