A nice essay on Shinjuku’s charms and not so charming things.

ribbons of shame

Pain. It’s a daily companion. It is far easier to count the days when I don’t feel pain then when I do and when that happens, I am acutely aware of it. It happens when I walk which pisses me off. I used to have a very infantry mindset of if the destination is less than two miles, it is walking distance. So not too long ago, I walked everywhere hard and fast. Most of the time it is a very low level pain; Not enough to debilitate me, but just enough to let me know that it is there. The more active I am, the more intrusive the pain becomes… It is as simple as that. I try not to let it dictate my life, but it lets me know my limits. Last August I climbed Mt. Oyama and pushed the pain to the limits. While writing this I…

The White Man’s Shame: We don’t need more sexual harassing assholes in Japan. Go home.

“When you go to Tokyo….if you’re a white male, you can do what you want. Just grab her, pull her in. She’ll giggle. Just say PIKACHU or POKEMON or something to take the pressure off. I’m romping through the streets (of Tokyo) just grabbing girls and it’s like (motions) head on dick (pfft) head on dick, yelling ‘PIKACHU’ with a Pikachu shirt on….Every foreigner who is white does this. When you see that one foreigner in the crowd in Tokyo and your eyes will lock and you know that he knows and he knows that and it’s this guilty look like you both fucked a hooker or something.”

Julien Blanc, “Dating expert” , pick-up artist, lecturing on picking up women in Japan
Transcribed from his video ▶ White Male Fucks Asian Women In Tokyo (And The Beautiful Methods To It) – YouTube
Who is Julien Blanc? He is according to his Facebook page “an executive coach for Real Social Dynamics, the international leader in dating advice. You can find his amazingly misogynist and offensive lectures on how to convince women to have sex with you (if you’re a white male with sociopathic tendencies) at two web sites:: http://www.pimpingmygame.com & http://www.rsdnation.com

He is coming to Japan sometime this month. He is not going to be very welcome. In September, a Youtube blogger named msdoom99, posted a Japanese subtitled video of his instructional film White Male Fucks Asian Women In Tokyo (And The Beautiful Methods To It) with some caustic comments.

Julien Blanc, "dating expert", bragging how easy it is to force Japanese women to put their mouths on your dick.  街で女の頭つかんで顔にチンコを当てまくった。

The title of her video editorial is 白人が日本で大暴れ「日本ではHしほうだい」(字幕). Translated: White man on rampage in Japan “You can have all the sex you want” 
Msdoom99 is studying shared culture in Asia and also studies comparative culture. For example, Her video essay on Japanese rip-offs of American films & television is hilarious. If you saw TOP GUN and the Japanese rip-off of it, Best Guy (ベストガイ), you’d appreciate her quirky talents and sense of humor. However, she doesn’t find much funny about Julien Blanc’s instructional lecture.
She writes, “It makes me sad. This white guy overflowing with confidence. It makes feel icky. Somehow it depresses me.”
The video ends with footage taken in Japan of “our hero” grabbing Japanese women at clubs, trying to be cute, and literally forcing their heads into his crotch.

Msdoom99’s video has gotten over a 1000 comments most of them extremely negative. Julien, in his overconfident idiocy, seems to believe that because Japanese women nervously giggle and don’t say “No!” or punch him, that they’re okay with his manhandling of them.
The man is so revolting that he as entire twitter feed dedicated to stopping him @jennli123 and a hashtag as well. #takedownjulienblanc

@Jennli123 has launched a campaign to track down and stop Julien Blanc (@RSDJulien) from spreading his toxic message and sexually harassing women.

There is no end to what I could write about his loathsome behavior but watch the video a few times and I’m sure you can decide for yourself, gentle reader.

I will say that what he does in the video would most likely be considered a crime in Japan, most likely 強制わいせつ (kyoseiwaisetsu/sexual assault) or 準強制わいせつ (Forcible Indecency,  Quasi Forcible Indecency). For his edification and that of anyone else who might want to emulate him, this is what the law says:  A person who through assault or intimidation forcibly commits an indecent act upon male or female shall be sentenced to hard labor for not less than six months but not more than ten years.

Unfortunately, “forcible indecency” (強制わいせつ罪)requires the victim to file a criminal complaint. No complaint, no crime. Hopefully, on this trip to Japan, which he announced by posting the video that shows him committing crimes, will get him placed in a very special love hotel–one with armed guards and no women.

I kind of hope he looks me up. I know the perfect Japanese woman for him—she’s a dominatrix with a great roundhouse kick. She would love to “play” with him. And he’d learn that being a player can earn you a special reward. He might even apologize for his past actions, if his jaw is still intact. At the very least, he might learn to be a little more polite to Japanese women—or any woman for that matter. One can hope.

Julien is coming to town. Ladies of Japan beware.
