There are Japanese women who wouldn't date me for all sorts of reasons.Maybe because of my lack of hair, or maybe my income level is too low, or my interests aren't hers, or whatever.Those Japanese women are unable to see what foreign women see, which portrays Japanese women as less capable of making evaluations than their foreign counterparts. Well, the only thing we know that differentiates these star struck women is that they're Japanese. That is, after all, the intent of the joke, to make a target of the over-privileged, traditionally an acceptable target for biting satire.It does try to give a nod to the idea that Japanese women are capable of self awareness and basic perceptions.If what your saying is that some Japanese women, when presented with two men who are close enough in all regards, except one is Japanese and one is white, and she chooses the white guy, then fine. The reader has Charisma Man shown to him as he appears through the eyes of a Japanese females who see him, and it is not what he actually looks like. Or, let's take a more current example, this "humour" piece that tries to riff on the "Charisma Man" premise in the form of a mock news article .Yes, I get that in a way we're also seeing how Charisma Man sees himself, but that self delusion exists only so long as it's supported by the response of the Japanese women around him. As a comedian, I have a lot of issues with how this piece fails at comedy in general, a lame attempt to emulate 's style. The relevant thing here is, what does it say about the concept that foreign guys have had it too easy in Japan?A comradery I don't share, because I don't see so much otherness in Asian-ness.
The meme of the loser white foreign guy who comes to Japan and reaps the benefits of undeserved attention from Japanese women is epitomized by a comic strip called .The central premise of the comic, its recurring gag , is that the hero of the comic appears as a model-like ideal of a foreign man in the eyes of Japanese women.When foreign women are on the scene, though, he is exposed as a scrawny and unappealing person.Anyone and everyone is entitled to their fetishes, and if one person is more attracted to another person because of some particular fetish, like height, or success, or breast size, or wealth, or whatever, then sure, what the hell.My personal opinion is that it absolutely does not matter what makes two people initially attracted to each other, so long as everything is legal, both consent to it, and both treat each other with respect and care when they get together. Japanese women are being portrayed as unable to visually process any reality beyond their fetish.
