Because they know what's up. I loved anime and manga, tea ceremony and ikebana, the rise of science fiction after the war--I loved Japan. Then I lived there as a student and being blonde and relatively attractive, I was sexually harassed every day. I saw horrible hive mind culture about subservient women, and textbooks modified to remove Japanese blame in the war. I've gotten past a lot of it and still like Japanese things, but yeah, I talk shit now.
i’m sorry that happened to you.
idk it’s one thing to acknowledge another culture’s problems like “japan has cultural issues involving x thing, and it occurred because y” and another thing entirely to talk about it as “man japanese people are so backwards because x, how stupid, i’m glad we never do those things”
