You are an English teacher, right?

I'll let you go back through the comments so you can see how I explained many times that this was a play at how they speak english which has a different structure then their language.

I have two questions:   
1) If a a stranger does "kochi" or " shoving fingers deep into your posterior thing" to a woman and she is married, does her husband have to defend her honor?  Challenging him to a duel or punishing him in a certain manner.    
2) What does my username mean?  I heard it in some new TMNT episode  when Michelangelo  pretends he's a superhero. It is suppose to mean "master of thunders or w/e. It could've been mistranslated Thanks!

Gorogoro is essentially onomatopoeia for thunder. Sama is an honorific that essentially means higher standing. It is basically san, the standard honorific but with more respect and holding them in high regards.

Do you have any advice for learning how to read the language?

Watch this. It's a Japanese course by an American guy who teaches English in Japan. He is wasted off his ass roughly 100% of the time, but his videos are surprisingly good for somebody who drinks his own weight in alcohol.

Have you ever been called or considered a "gajin"?I've heard that some japanese are racist toward the foreigners
User avatar #296 to #286 - bizengaust (06/19/2014) [-]
I've only been called that once when I was on a train to Tokyo.

I'd say when it comes to sexuality, the Japanese culture has been repressed for so long under formality and polite or honourable ways of acting, that the sexual frustration is starting to seep through. Japan never really had a swinging 60's release of a sexual identity crisis like the west did.

So all the weird stuff we see coming out of Japan, is sort of a more restrained Japanese 21st century version of 60's swingers culture. Where they're trying to let themselves go and discover their sexual identity, but also be polite and maintain their strong cultural standards. So it gets all confused and we have huge debauched hentai sex scenes, but the genitals are still blurred out, even though we know it makes no sense in the context of what is happening.

I remember back in college actually meeting a Japanese girl, well she was born in Japan and had the look of a Japanese girl, but her father was born in my hometown who lives in Japan now, she came to my hometown for a sweet reason, to see her father's home. You would be amazed what I learned just from her!
2 things, one, most Americans (including myself) do not identify themselves as American in background, we tend to include our European ancestors or something to that effect instead, her father had a Swedish background. So it's actually curious to say I'm American instead of talking about our ancestry that we're German, Swedish, or English.
2nd, most Japanese (including herself) still haven't heard of extremely popular places, rides, shows, or stuff like that! I'm a roller coaster buff and I showed this to our class, she had never heard of it and she didn't know it was in Japan!

The best part of Japan imo, is how they've actually accepted 2 American sports into their culture, Baseball and Pro Wrestling, and they REALLY treat the latter as an art and with respect! It's insane! Watch any Japanese pro wrestling match and you can see a huge difference between them and WWE.

I would guess the thing about perversion would be more like being suppressed for so long that when you eventually let the metaphorical floodgates open, it comes out like a big wave unlike when you aren't suppressed and you can express it little by little.
Also, sex not being discussed as openly in media and public as it is in the US--mainly saying what is and isn't accepted, like fetishes and whatnot--and therefor not knowing what would be seen as 'right'. Like tentacle porn or enemas.

for one thing japanese porn is censored, and because of that the quality of the other stuff beyond the size of the penis and the appearance of the vagina like plot and acting is so much more important because of that.

From your comp, I got the impression that English is becoming more and more common throughout Japan. I was wondering, in your opinion, do you think there is a future for English Teachers (I mean a high demand) in Japan within the next 5-10 years? In your last comp, I asked about JET programs and Amity I think it was. I'm learning both Chinese and Japanese, and may be looking to teach in one of those countries.

Also, do the Japanese dress their dogs up? I've been to Taiwan quite a few times, and I can say that dressing a dog up is quite popular. Not quite like this though...

Since Japan does a lot of trade with English speaking countries I think there will always be a demand for English speaking teachers.  Also, since it opens you up to more options as far as working in the country or abroad, parents will pay a decent amount for their children to be exposed to the language.   
I have seen people dress up their dogs here. My boss, who is an elderly Japanese lady of 50, has a dachshund that she constantly in little sweaters. I have also seen a lot of young girls in Harajuku dress up their tiny dogs and walk about with them.

nice comp, gives good detail about japan that most wouldn't know despite watching a lot of content from Japan (mainly anime which could give the wrong impression).
question for the next comp, are western foods easily available in Japan or can they be tricky to import, things like sweets, drinks and other snacks?
User avatar #7 to #5 - bizengaust (06/18/2014) [-]
The quick answer is yes, and I will go into more elaboration about it in the next one

For a Russian-American, you sure know so much about Japan. Every Russian and Ukrainian I know just don't give a **** about any other country than the one they live in and where they're from.

OP claims to be an English teacher in Japan

Yeah, Russians give so many ***** about their country that they decided to try to expand it lately...

All 3 of the former Axis powers (Japan, Germany, Italy) federally allow ephebophilia down to age 14, 13 is legal in some areas. Now, I've also heard that in Japan you are not considered an Adult until age 20.

So... what's the deal with that, Japanese Myth Buster-chan?
